Dancing Cardboard Cutouts of Mickey and Minnie Mouse

Jump to last reply

My wife and i had a funny experience in Venice. We kept seeing street vendors on the streets with a boom box playing music, and cardboard cutouts of Mickey and Minnie Mouse dancing to the music. They just stood the figures up and they stayed up on their on, with no strings attached, and danced to the music. The cutouts were about 5 inches tall, with string legs and what appeared to be small magnets attached to the feet and head. They were selling them for a couple of bucks.

We couldn't figure out what held up the cutouts and how they danced, but like idiots we bought a couple. I pulled one out of its plastic wrapper and was looking at it trying to figure out how it worked. The vendor took it from me and passed it in front of his boom box as if magnetizing it, or something and then set it down. It began dancing just as the other two he already had dancing.

Needless to say, when we got them home, they wouldn't work. We really feel stupid, but it is laughable that we even thought they would work.

My question is, have any of you ever seen these things and know how they make them dance? Obviously it is some sort of trick, but it is a good one. If anyone can solve this mystery for me, I would appreciate it.
