Do you have a Zombie already? If not, you might think twice about buying one.
First, Zombie demands a tremendous amount of showmanship and pacing of routine that new magicians (and some experienced ones, too!) often lack.
Secondly, one must pay careful attention to lighting (that is, NO strong back lighting), or the illusion will be exposed.
Thirdly, the correct foulard will cost much more than the Zombie does!
Fourthly, children can often see right through to the heart of things like Zombie, as they have no prior life experiences to cloud their thinking like adults do.
OK; if you must have one, then save yourself a bundle of $$ while you see if you really want one. Get this:
Miracle Ball by J. Karson (this is a lighter, less expensive, easier to use Zombie that works the same way, and it comes with the suitable cloth and stand) -- around $10 to $12
Floating Ball Magic (this is a book of ideas to enhance the Miracle Ball, and is definitely worth having) -- under $5
Play around with this to see if you really like it. It is much easier to use than Zombie, and it responds better to lighting effects, too.
One man's opinion,
