Do you think children from grades 1-6 will enjoy signed bill in lemon?

I think if you were going to do that, it would play a lot better on adults. Try Bill Malone's Counterfeit Money Bills on his "On the Loose" Volume 2. It is a cool trick with a production of a lemon in your shoe that uses Monopoly money. Try that out.

the strength about bill in lemon is its their money and their signature. I ask how many children do you see with money? Maybe in your market kids carry around bills, in my market they don’t.

I personally think most presentations would go right over the heads of the little ones. The older ones would understand though.

Bill Malone's would be good though if he wanted to do a Bill in lemon trick. Did you even read what I said?

I did say MOST. You know how many bill in lemon routines there are out there? I am not familiar with Bill Malone's so feel free to suggest it. Most bill in lemons would not play well for the 1st graders. That's all I was saying Bicycle12 so no need to ask if I read what you wrote.

If you've seen it, you'd agree with me. He used to have a video of it up on youtube, but Bill probably took it down. :(

Perfect! You, of course, have to modify the patter to suit a kid audience, but that is of course a given. Good luck!

Yeah I know, I was just wondering how you thought it would play out.

A simple answer to the OP, yes.

The younger one's will be more on the amused side and the older one's will be more on the "Wow" side.

It's hard to tell. Will you kind of give me a quick play- by- play of the effect, just to jog my memory. I don't own the DVD, but remember seeing Bill perform it on Youtube. Thanks! Even though I can't fully remember the effect right now, it is probably the closest bet you have on a "kid- friendly" bill in lemon effect.

Quick rundown of the bill trick (pun intended)

Get a signed bill from audience
make a couple jokes about a counterfieter(sp?) putting their pic on the bill and stuff
give the bill the fold test (20$ bill turns into 1$)
have spec come up for bill
produce lemon from shoe
cut lemon open to find bill

That is very shortened but you have the idea minus the jokes.

Thanks. You could substitute the real money with play money to make it more suitable for kids. I think it might go over nicely, but I'm not too sure now.
