Dump the coloring book. every little kid has seen it. Use the same ropes for the professor's nightmare/professor's daydream and the cut and restored rope sequence. you have to buy your rope in 50 or 100 foot lengths but it is cheap at the hardwae store. It only takes a second to cut the ropes for the professor's routine and I do it right in front of the audience and no one sees what I am doing.

I say keep the coloring book! Every little kid has not seen it and the ones who had probably have not seen it the way you perform it unless you do the most common routines. I have about a 5-6 minute coloring book routine that EVERY kid loves whether they are familiar with the prop or not. It is the pride and joy of my kidshows and always gets one of the best responses.

Well...Actually...To roughly quote Samuel patrick smith....

"
When you pull out a prop, a grade 4 child might say "Oh, I've seen THAT before"

Where as a preschooler might say "Oh! I've seen THAT before!...Let's see it again!"

"

So yeah...young kids ENJOY repitition.
