What the heck was this random thing Filter: In the early 80's there was a popular children's toy called the Fisher Price Magic Show. (Here's a picture.
) The kit included a magician's wand with a silk flower that would pop out of one end...

It also included a plastic chicken cup where a child could appear to change a red foam ball into an egg, some other little toys, and - most importantly - a plastic crate/trunk apparatus for performing magic tricks. Can someone please explain to me what this crate was and how it worked...
I remember, and it is verified in the picture, the crate had several doors on the front (red, blue, yellow, and black in the center?) I think it also had a seperate box that slid into the side of the crate. I think the crate could move the little red foam ball and make it disappear? Is that right? Does anyone remember exactly how this toy worked?
I know it was a pretty popular toy at the time. While I didn't have the set, I remember a number of my friends did. My husband (same age) remembers some of his friends having it too. Anyone? This thing appears to be unGoogleable.
