Hi, I want to do a kid's show, don't worry, I haven't booked anything. I was just wondering, what types of tricks do eight and nine year olds like? Thanks for the help.

i suggest definately the peanut butter and jelly illusion also jay sankeys big finish but keep in mind the instructional video for big finish is now seperate and must be bought with the dvd

also a few silk routines such as color silk blendo and disappearing silks it really gets the kids into ur magic and makes them think that magic truley is real -great reactions-

-tip: when using a TT for kids shows u do not need to worry if it is your first time to use a TT kids do not expect things like that so just have fun with it!!

- Knot A Chance

- Endless Rose

Those two effects work great with 8-9 year olds (I don't have 'Endless Rose' yet but I have heard from several professionals that it works great for that age group and I will be purchasing it soon. But I do have 'Knot A Chance' and it works real big for 8-9 year olds).

A funny cut and restored rope always has been in my routines for 8-9 year olds.

Cheers,
Adam

There is a cute little trick out there that you uses a View Master. Now, once I purchased the trick I modified it by using the "latest" view master model. The trick gives you the old version. It also is setup differently than I perform it, but with a modification it is easily repeatable! The kids get a kick out of it and they can totally relate to it -- while they all jump up excitedly as you "predict" the answer!

Is this a close up show or more of a stand up show?
If its close up then a color change is fine.

Cheers,
Adam

I don't really know, I would rather have the kids in groups of 5 or 6, and do some table-hopping stuff. I don't really relish the thought of having 20 kids staring at me at the same time. I'm kind of shy :oops: . I'm working on my patter though, trying to teach them some stuff about safety. I'd start it off like, "If someone says to you 'Do you want to see some magic, well, just follow me to my house/car.' Don't, just say No thank you, and walk away. If he/she follows you, call for help." Then, I'd try to elaborate on that with other safety stuff." Sorry, that was kind of off-topic, but I don't want these kids to get hurt.
