well...ok. None the less, it's no where near as bad as the stuff on television for them to mimmick. I used them in my show for years as have Ken Scott, David Allen, David Ginn, David Kaye, Dan Garrett, and many other Kidshow legends, and NEVER had a problem.

A plastic bag doesn't even look like a mouth coil...so that was dumbness on YOUR part.


That was really funny!

And you can just say do not try this or something before you do it.

Hey, I was a kid with a vivid imagination (as most 6-7 year olds do), and I figured "If this guy can fit something that big it his mouth and pull it out from his throat, then so can I." You have to remember, kids don't think that the paper is rolled up all nicely inside a little paper tube ready to pull out. They think that it's possible to stuff paper down your throat and pull it back out again!

Kids as young as two can enjoy magic...if it is the right stuff done the right way. Visual effects involving color, transforming one thing into another, appearances, and vanishes, are good. Four year olds can take that, and more. Such kids do have a short attention span, so shorter-less complicated-tricks are best. Blue half dollars vanished from your hand, and changed into red dimes, work. Keep it short, simple, and visual. The Zombie would interest some four year olds, but probably not younger kids. Most card tricks would be too complicated for the four and younger set to follow, or enjoy. Let the trick explain itself, and forget patter for such young audiences.

It all looks great to me. Personally I love the Mouth Coils. It's great for kids, and I don't think you'll have to worry about anyone mimmicking you. The only reason I stopped doing mouth coils was because my surplus of them ran out and I was too cheap to buy any more!


Kyle,

You should look into making your own mouth coils. It is extremely easy to do and very cost effective. You'll be surprised how easy it is.
