Just found an interested DVD at HP Magic Store.

Learn how to create characters with nothing but your hands and a comedy pair of eyes!

This is the perfect ice-breaker for close-up workers, walkaround magicians, clowns, children's entertainers, MCs, you name it!

Magic Castle host Kurt Freitag shows you how to create memorable characters with instant puppetry with a real pair of comedy eyes, which are included with this DVD!

Just pop the comedy eyes in your pocket and you'll be able to entertain anyone anywhere and anytime after watching this DVD!

Gags, tips, routine ideas galore that will set your act apart from all the rest!

Comes complete with DVD and a real pair of comedy eyes!
==========================

Let me tell you that I use this kind of Puppet eyes in my regular show for a small routine with good response. They are great because I can use my two hands and a puppet at the same time for my magic routine.

So, a review about this DVD could be great.

Well, after get this DVD as a bargain, let me give you my feedback.

This is ONLY a Puppet Eyes (Peepers Puppets) Character DVD. Nothing more is included.

The Good:
The DVD shows a lot of good examples of characters, most of them are very ingenious and easy to do with one or two hands.
Good for story tellers, puppeteers and for some magic routines. I already have a couple of routines using this Prop.

The Bad:
The Puppet Eyes included with the DVD is a cheap and low quality Chinese copy from the original maker.
Kurt didnít include any magic or gag routine in his short time record.

Even though Kurt Freitag shows nice characters, at the end of the tape I felt that something was missing.

Do I think itís a worth buy? Mmmmm. I doubt it.
Maybe if you are an enthusiast puppeteer.

Just my feelingÖ
