Here's another great product from Silly Billy. A 6 foot inflatable wand. It takes 30 seconds to inflate by mouth. It's made from the same material as bounce castles, so it should last a really long time!

I still use the Bigger wands from Creative, but this is a great option for smaller venues. (homes, etc).

He had these at his lecture, when he was here in Victoria, BC, Canada, back in June.

I like Silly Billy, and I can see how this might be of interest to those who don't have the Creative Magic items. Because the company is now closed, you either already have them, or have to track down a used set, if you want to use "Bigger Wands" and/or "Biggest Wand" in your show. (And yes, "Bigger Wands" and "Biggest Wand" were sold separately, although many performers use them together.)

The 6' airship wand is an inflatable, and is being compared to the 12' inflatable "Biggest Wand" from Creative Magic (which is still available from Jeff Jones at Magic Backdrops). And yes, I get the concept of using a 6' wand instead of a 12' wand in a house party. And it's got an attractive price point, if you wanted to get a larger type of wand but don't own any of the Creative Magic items yet.

But if you have a set of Creative Magic's "Bigger Wands", then you have wands that are 5' and 7.5' long in that set. You could use those at a house party just as easily. They just aren't inflatable (which packs very small), but the 5' and 7.5' Bigger Wands do pack down smaller because they are foam noodles that come apart, with a cloth cover, and come with a carrying bag for the whole set of Bigger Wands.

P.S. If you are new to kids magic, and haven't heard of "Bigger Wands" or "Biggest Wand":

Donald, that's exactly what I do...use the noodles from Bigger Wands. I also have problems with leaking in Biggest wand, so I don't use it often... can't seem to fix the leak. Inflatables are tough to count on.

I bought two Silly Billy 6 ft wands because it is more compact than Creative Magic's Bigger Wands set and the price point is attractive.

It's cumbersome to travel with my Bigger Wands set. The Silly Billy wand appeals to me because it provides a similar effect as Bigger Wands but looks easier to bring into the venue. What I didn't think about was packing down. I wonder how easy it is to deflate.

The wands should arrive next week so I can test them.

I have one - it really packs small, and looks good when inflated. The only problem I have, is after I blow it up, I have to sit down and recover for 20 minutes.

I recently purchased this. And I rarely will give a review on a product.

But I have to give Silly Billy an A+ on this. This is a terrific effect and you can even add in Multiplying Wands to add to the effect. Just use your imagination.

I also am going to use a Wand Puppet from Dan over at Creative Art Store in my routine.
