The illusion begins with a bed and side tables. A pillow rests on the bed. The Magician shows the pillow and places it back on the bed. The pillow magically comes to life. At first it dances on the bed. Next the Magician picks up the pillow and places it on the top of the head board. The pillow dances back and forth across the head board. The pillow can vanish under the bed sheet and reappear from a drawer in the side tables. Finally the Magician places the pillow under the bed sheet where is continues to dance. The Magician pulls away the sheet and the pillow has magically transformed into the assistant.
Many routines and sequences are possible with the illusion. Also available is an additional automated pillow that dances in the magicians hands or while placed on the floor away from the bed. The bed is constructed from aluminum and scenic painted to appear as a modern wood bed. The lights are powdered by rechargeable batteries so no onstage power cord is needed. For storage backstage, the headboard folds down and the bed can be tipped up on end giving it an extremely small backstage footprint.
