He really needs a book on kids magic, just so he can get started on how to develop his routines.

Maloney, you're right. I had assumed he already had done the research. I do know that the important part of the word "assume" is the first sylable. as one who assumes is an ...

Eli,

You will have a difficult time getting magicians to tell you their routines. They work hard at developing them and will not lightly detail their performances. I am sure you can understand that.

yeh, i understand that, fair enough. I don't want a blow by blow of his routine, I had just never seen a cups and balls routine in a kids show before and was curious as to how it would be altered from, say, a street routine.

All i really wanted to know is whether cups nd balls can go in a kids show. If i used it, i'd certainly create my own routine.

That's very good advice - I suggest you follow it as well!

I used to do a routine with cat-nip mice... final load was a piece of cheese made out of foam, and then a real live mouse. It was easy for the kids to follow and they loved it. Almost anything can be adapted...you just have to think a little bit and discover how to do it.

that's very clever.

i see now how cups and balls can be used. i was thinking of them in their normal presentation, but if they are adapted in style then they would suit a kids' show well. thanks for the clarification.

no problem! you can do this with most effects. It's all about making things understandible and fun by thinking outside the box a little bit.
