Not really a trick, but very puzzling nonetheless. This bank was produced by Tenyo in 1993, and sold to toy stores. It is very cool and will fool you as you put it through its paces. It is a bank, shaped like a standing mirror, or maybe a coffin. The front is open and you can see a mirror inside. Protruding from the top is a slide that depicts Dracula. A coin is placed in the vampireís arms, and Dracula is pushed down into the box. As the slide is visible inside the box, everyone sees Dracula instantly vanish as he goes inside! The coin also vanishes, and is hidden away in the savings section of the bank.
The cool part is that Dracula is visible while he is out of the box, and invisible inside, even when he is half in and half out Ė you can see his top half but not his bottom half. Push the slide REALLY slow, as there is no way to tell where he is going as hi visibly vanishes! Very hard item to find, now almost two decades after its release. This one is in excellent near mint condition. If instructions came with this item, they are no longer here, (but I donít think they did). Get this for your Tenyo collection now!
