No way! People of all ages freak out to this one. Try performing a routine once and I'm sure you will be hooked!

Um no, I have used sponge balls for 35 years now for adults and all age groups and people love them especially girls of any age. I use kids tricks in adult shows and retirement homes and they are work great I just change the presentation and how I speak. This is just a false stereotype created by over-thinking magicians.

In chatting with people when I perform, those people that had previously seen another strolling magician always mention, with wide-eyed amazement, a sponge ball routine as the trick they remember seeing. That final explosion of sponge balls out of someone's hand (not necessarily their own) is astonishing and memorable to all ages.

Gosh(man), this is tricky. I guess they're not just for kids, but there is something childish about them. You can't deny that. I still do a sponge routine for adults, but I frame it as a juvenile piece. As long as you acknowledge there's something youthful about them, you should be good to perform sponges for any audience.

mcdonaldization you are apparently very misguided. I did not know all my corporate gigs were ran by kids I will be sure to let them know that. However something can be said about an adult that is still a big kid at heart, such as myself, we tend to have a lot more fun in life and are a lot healthier and prosperous. People who think like you do are generally old, dull, miserable and boring.

No! Not at all! All people love them. They are not just for kids. Just preform them and the audience will be hooked!

That's the Great part about Sponge Balls… they're Great for Any Age! It will skew whichever way the Audience want's it to. In fact… I had to quit using my "Blue" Sponge balls at Wedding because of all the "Blue Balls" jokes that Guests would throw out!
