Hey guys and gals.
I've purchased Deja Zoo a while ago, really liked the idea and understood the effect but I've really struggled with putting it into my Kids show for one reason. I really don't think it fools any one.
Is it just because I know the secret and what’s really going on?

If any of you guys have used or still do used this effect in your shows please help me out here. Is it really just me or is the secret easily discovered?

Cheers,
Adam

I don't have it yet but have read some reviews on it by working professionals and they all like it and use it. Once I get it, I'll let you know if you want.

I just started using it my shows and it is a wonderful effect.
Don't let the simple nature of it fool you. Its good.

Cheers,
Adam

Thanks for the positive review. I hadn't even heard of it before you mentioned it. I googled it and took a look. Glad to know it is working for you.

Yeah its one of those "once you know the effect and secret you don't think it will fool any one" effects.
I was hesitant to put it into my act only because I didnt have a place for it. But I rebuilt my show a bit and had a nice place for it. So I put it in with some great interaction and sound effects. Stunned um. Even the parents were wow'ed

Cheers
Adam

Another effect that I HIGHLY recommend is 'Knot A Chance.' It falls under the same type of 'everyone will know it' thing, but believe me, 98-100% of the people I have performed this for (including kids, teenagers and adults), have been wow'ed by this. Even a few teacher's mentioned to me they really liked it but have no idea how the bill was tied to the final rope at the end.

And it's so easy, self-working (you should do it straight out of the package and at your first try w/o any problems), this is one of those tricks that you can really concentrate fully on the performance rather than the effect.

I'd recommend to perform this for 6-12 year olds.

For either effect I don't think there is a video.
You can find them at other sites tho for product descriptions.

Cheers,
