You ever notice that whenever someone wants to "make their show better" all they ever think of is new tricks to buy? Why doesn't anyone ever think to buy a book or a video on how to entertain children? There are tons of them out there, and many of them are written by the leading experts in the field.
Only YOU can make your kidshows better...you could own every single magic kidshow prop/item and still have a terrible kidshow...only YOU can make it better!
Excelent points, a good friend of mine, Darryl Hutton said to me: The entertainment in in you, the props are just there to help.
It is a very good point, you could take the worst, cheepest magic trick and make it great, but, you can also take a great magic tricks and make it look horriable.
