Needle Through Balloon is an illusion where a sharp needle is passed through a balloon without popping it.


First published as "No Bop Balloon" by Canadian Tom Ransom in New Phoenix No. 312 (July 23, 1954)

It was being marketed as "The Pincushion Balloons" by 1956.

"Super Needled Balloon" was created by Boretti from Germany which included a length of ribbon or yarn attached to the needle that also penetrated the balloon.

Doug Henning made the trick popular after performing the illusion on one of his television specials.
