Topic: Rubber Bird vs Rubber Bird
Message: Posted by: kingsnqueens (Feb 26, 2003 07:06PM)
I need to start thinking about buying a couple of fake birds.

It's over 100 miles one way to our nearest magic store, so I buy most of my magic via the internet, or build my own.

If someone who has seen the It's Alive Latex Dove, and the Nelsen Latex Dove could share thier opinion I'd be grateful!

I've never gotten a bad product from Norm Neilsen Magic, but from the photos I've seen the It's Alive Dove looks better.

Maybe my friend Dave might know?

Thank You & Good Magic

Well,thanks for the vote of confidence but I cannot compare the two. I have never seen the "It's Alive Dove" but I do own several Norm Nielson doves. All I can say is that they look almost real and for what I use them for, they always pass as the real thing. My web site has a picture of me doing the dove through glass with the Nielson dove if you want to take a look.

It's Alive looks GREAT!!! I have been in need of a few new rubbers myself (birds that is). I plan to purchase the It's Alive. Been happy with the Nielsen doves in the past, but the It's Alive looks much better (judging by the photos I have seen).

Dear kingsnqueens

It's Alive looks a little better than the version from Nielsen... BUT it is very, very soft... comparing both, Nielsen is easier to handle because it is a little stiffer but compresses equally good as well.

If you can afford it, the BEST version is by OWEN MAGIC SUPREME... the rubber doves cost USD $75.00, almost double the price of the above 2... but it looks very realistic & even comes with the dove feet... PERFECT!

Hope this helps!
