I'm not trying to bash on you, but aren't these questions that you should have asked before you bought the products?

The general answer to your question is that it all depends on what you do with them. I mean, what makes a TT streamer "good" or "bad"? It's a streamer. :roll:

As for your question re the wand length... as has been noted, isn't this is the kind of thing you want to ask before you make the purchase?

Perhaps the best advice I can give is don't buy something unless you have thoroughly research it AND have identified a use for it.

Having said that, I can say that all those items are worth having...but will do you no "good" unless you use them well.

But they ain't magic.

What kids "want" is to be entertained. They can be entertained with many things in many ways. The type of entertainment you choose to provide is ultimately up to you.

But you have to decide what you want to be. If you are selling yourself as a magician, then juggling and balloon sculptures have little to no reason for being in your performance.

Should we be telling jugglers or balloon sculptors that they should be learning magic? I think not.

If you want to be a magician, be a magician. If you want to be a juggler, be a juggler. If you want to be a balloon sculptor, be a balloon sculptor.

Yes, you can be all three...or any combination of two or those three. But think very carefully about your reasons why before you decide to do them together.
