Hello all "penguiners"
My name is Tyler, I am 13 and am starting, well actually partially into kids shows! Anyway, I'm not just going to put up a list, but actually my routine in kind of point form...heck if you like use my ideas. Now some of these tricks may not be used for kids...but please consider in mind the storyline.
EDIT: I have gone solo due to my partner's lack of practice, plus I have most of the tricks. I think I can do MUCH better on my own...I have even written up my own routine (which took many hours mind you) that I won't post here. This is because it reveals tricks and moves with such lines as "ditch *insert gimmick/prop here* in prop box" or "steal off TT". But if an experienced magician (paddy, sluggo, kylethegreat..etc.) would like to view it I'd be happy to send it to them through PM or IM. I absoluuuuteeelllly looooove constructive criticism, so shoot at me with all ya got (seriously no sarcasm). Anyway in the meantime feel free to comment on my friend and I's old routine. Compared to mine now IMO I think ours is completely trash.
-Please don't interrupt us (me and my friend) while in the middle of a trick
-Any questions will be answered before the show
-"Magic" line made from tape not to pass unless asked.
That's basically it.
Routine: (this basically goes in the line of a story) Just so you know me and my friend are acting as one person...we classify this at the beginning to eliminate confusion.
M = Me
F = Friend
F - Man, I wanted to go out...but I needed some change...I always wondered what a quarter tasted like...YUCK! (Coin Bite...you wouldn't believe it but kids love this!)
M - So, I was on my way to the zoo, and this magician shows up and he wants to show me some neat tricks. The first one was called the 2 card monte. (2 Card Monte...kids freak out on this one for us...they're like "
HUH?! But...but it was just an ace! MAGIC!)
F - The next trick he showed me was also called the two card monte, but this was different. (Other 2 Card Monte...kids like this one too)
M - Man, I finally got to the zoo! But it was a zoo of sponge animals! You know, like these (pulls out rabbits)...while no one was looking...I snatched some rabbits and searched for someone to perform this on. (Multiplying 3D Rabbits)
F - Wow, that went great, then I saw balloons! I love balloons! So I bought one....but the salesman was very mean...before he sold the balloon to me he cut it...good thing I'm a magician! (Cut+Restored Balloon)
M - After a long day I went home...then my mean ol' brother comes and pulls a prank on me! (Magic Pea Can...haha kids get a good laugh outta this one)
M - After that I was bored, so I felt like playing with my colouring book! You guys like colouring books, don't you? (Usually yes) (Colouring Book + Crayons)
M - My mom comes along and wants me to show her a trick! I showed her a lil' trick I call the sponge balls! (Sponge Balls)
This usually stretches out to 45 minutes - hour MAX...
Extra additions to future shows (note I have these just working out a sensible plot for them)
Appearing Cane and Vanishing Cane
Change Bag (Zipper)
PB & J Illusion
Professor's Nightmare Rope Trick
