The vanishing-cup makes a coin seem to vanish: it looks like the coin sits on a solid block covered by the cup, but in fact the cup holds a second slightly larger solid block that covers the first, so that the coin appears to vanish.

I still have the Mysterious Dice. The middle layer is a hollow "dice" with one face missing, and the inside painted black, so that you can hold up the outer box with the middle dice insie it, hollow face facing outwards, and it looks as if the box is empty.
