Thanks, Frank!

I've never used the Clones bit. I'll make a little note in my "tips" file!

The reason nobody mentioned it may be a simple matter of context. Would kids today even know what it is?

Interesting thought. There is also the spongeball from phone/tablet start. This is where a video of a ball grows on screen and is "plucked" off.

I guess that I'm too old fashioned! Being retired, I don't do much performing anymore!

Frank...I still use a "dumb" phone! hee hee But, I can understand how the phone/tablet idea would really "play"!

For more years than I could count! I used the purse frame, in high schools, for an ultra simple, 2 sponge ball routine. It always played well, but, I haven't worked a high school in 15 years!

Maybe, I had better use the purse frame in my very occasional senior citizen gigs! (I think Danny would agree. heehee)

Nothing wrong with purse frames, they just might require more context now is all.

My partner Tom uses purse frame all the time to GREAT effect with ALL audiences. I will say that he is the best with it that I've ever seen and his timing and interactions are great. One of his best bits is having a child reach in the purse (frame) and take out either a coin of sponge ball while the parents are watching. Since neither the Child (till just as they are touching the object and it just seems to appear there rather than seeming palmed) or the Parents can see where it is coming from, it gets a wonderful reaction.

Purse frame works but you have to put in the time and routining.

Martin Gardner in Genii has an article about performing magic for kids. Has a great coin routine. As Oslund says, Do your homework!

Recently I started doing coin in plastic (water) bottle using PK principle. The penetration moment where they both see and hear the coin completely knocks the socks off the pre-tweens. And the teens and tweens go nuts when they find that the coin is too big to fit through neck of the bottle. Response is as strong as sponges.
