This is the best set of Nested Wands on the market! 6 wands in the set. The first is large and then they get smaller and smaller, keeping the same proportions between length and width. They are made of black plastic (no paint that peels off) and are end capped (look solid and not like hollow tubes, the caps also prevents the wands to accidently and pre-maturely fall out). They rest on your palm and simply slide out, you do not have to pull them out.The effect: You and your little helper are going to do a magic trick together. You hand him your magic wand but still have one. You give him that one too, but you still have one. At the end he is holding one wand in each hand, one wand under each arm, one wand between his knees and one wand under his chin. Then you change places! Then he wiggles all the wands at the same time and the magic happens!
