My wife Lynne spent $40 buying me a professional collapsible top hat years ago. I used it for 20 years until it fell apart. Today that hat would run over $100 from a costume shop. NOW I have found a very good economy model folding top hat that is excellent for our magical needs. Whether you wear it, use it for a receptacle, or produce silks, flowers or a rabbit from it – this top hat is just the one you need because THE PRICE IS RIGHT! It comes with three pages of instructions on ways to use it, including loading a rabbit or silks into the hat. I am even using & showing it now in my workshops! GREAT PROP!
