Topic: Magic with toys
Message: Posted by: myoungbauer (Nov 13, 2007 08:27PM)
One of my friends has a wonderful study in his house. It's shelves arelined with books, his walls covered with art, and his tables filled with toys.

Wire puzzles, optical illusions, magic tricks. I think of it as kind of a magical place. It seems that many adults give up their toys, things to play with that stimulate curiosity and wonder.

I was thinking of developing an informal act based on those ideas, revolving around toys. I'm aware of several card locations using toys(Koornwinder Kar, the Don Alan Ranch Bird) and a few other things. But I was hoping to find other close-up ideas.

Thanks!

David Roth has a couple in "Expert Coin Magic" that may work for you.

The Table.
The Rainbow.
Silly Putty.
The Planet.

Don't forget the rubiks cube there are a couple of nice effects there. A stack of board games and there are a ton of toys that could double as magic tricks.
