The idea of using a finger puppet as a gag was first utilized from Paul Harris' book by Bob Farmer. Bob called it "The creation of life". 

Derek Dingle used Bob's gag to "explain" the vanish of a coin, and that routine appeared in one of the New York Coin Symposium books back in the 1980's.

Derek's routine was then popularized by Michael Ammar when he performed this feat on Letterman and renamed it 'Little Hand'. 

Since then Alex Ng, Kevin Ho, Roddy McGhie & Dave Bonsall all have their own work on this gag.

We can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Gimmick doesn’t fit any of my fingers. Even when I take out the extra stuffing. Very difficult to do with one hand. Don’t waste your money. Get the little hand

    So I have a weekly table hopping gig and every now and again there will be kids so I picked this up expecting it would be good for kids. I was right this is great for kids. The downside is the ball of yarn given lasts approximately .07% of a second before it unravels. However I coincidentally had a small magnetic ball about the same shape and use that instead.
    All in all good product for the price, I would recommend getting it if your intended spectators are children. Just be weary that you will likely have to use some other magnetic object then the yarn that is supplied.

    I freaking love this thing. I performed the trick to several of my friends and it gets a laugh every time. Definitely worth the $10 price tag.
