Topic: Giant fly-swatter
Message: Posted by: jgbrown (Sep 27, 2006 08:19PM)
Folks, I hope you will forgive the intrusion of a mere magician into the clowning forum, but I have a prop question that I suspect is best asked here. Does anyone know of a source for a giant fly-swatter? I am looking for one for the 'Troll Hunt' routine in David Ginn's 'Kid Biz', and all I can find is promotional firms that want to sell a minimum lot of 100 at a time.

Many thanks, in advance.

Whoa! Very quick response, and an excellent resource, as well. I see many more goodies that can be adapted for children's magic. Many thanks, Steve.

Regan,

Texas flies have trailer hitches and fog lights.

Bob,

Those suckers must have some powerful wings! On take off I bet they probably stir up as much Texas dust as a helicopter would.
