Excelent topic. This will help alot of people and stop them from asking and making new topics.

But how will the people view it though? Needs to stay on top.. :roll:

PB and Jelly I love to do with the right presentation. I also use a TT to make some things vanish and then have them reappear in a dove pan. I just bought the coloring book and my daughter loves it. I haven't used it at a show yet though. I have found that kids like when you bend forks. I even hand some out and let them try. The more they get to participate, the happier they (and their parents) are going to be.

What do you mean by "the right presentation"? Do mean a routine?

I think the first investment any one should make after they decide to get serious about a particular venu of magic is a book/tape that offers not only the specific tricks that work best in a particular venu but tips; the how's and why's of things such as:

"Restaurant Workers Handbook" by Jim Pace and Jerry MacGregor
"Crash Course on Kid Shows" by David Ginn
"McBride Magic on Stage" by Jeff McBride

Sources like that will save you a lot of money; money you might have other wise wasted on effects/gimmicks that you'll never use. (learned that the hard way)

Routine, presentation, whatever you want to call it. If you stand there with the black covers over the PB n Jelly and just lift them up and down, the trick sucks. If you PRESENT the effect to the kiddies in a way that they get to participate a lot, then the trick becomes one of the most fun illusions that you can put into your ROUTINE.

Oh yes, I agree there. I have a rather good sucker routine that has a bunch of participation for PB&J. It doesn't work if you just do the trick. :D
