As much as I would love to keep this all to myself, I can't help but sing Dan Wolfe's praise for one of his most recent creations:
"Fraidy"

Before you make an immediate comparison to the old "Fraidy Frame," you have to know this is steroids, which have taken steroids. The drug comparison makes sense when you get this thing and find out you can customize it for practically anything. I first purchased this for my children's shows with a "Vanishing Elephant" type routine... great for circus shows, Halloween (Houdini's great illusion) etc. etc. I found out it works just as well with adults... yep! So then, I took him up on his "McCombical" style routine with cards- also great for different audiences-- kids love to see "how a trick works," and the adult in the hotseat…. then a custom bit for my anti-bullying shows.... today I just received another custom job for Halloween with a mummy. So, yes, this thing is a drug, and Dan Wolfe is the hookup :)

Seriously, the frame plays big, is quick to set up, and the work is minimal so you can craft a presentation to fit the situation. Anyone who has ever purchased from Smoky Mountain Magic knows of the quality and great looks of the props. But my favorite is the reaction... you get a deer in the headlights look for a moment, and then lots of applause and "whaaaat?!"s from the audience. Based on your prop/routining you can do this as a solo effect or with volunteer(s). No one up with you will see anything you don't want them to. You'll end up playing with it yourself, watching the "works", and you'll be so impressed you'll be tempted to show it to your audience, it's that impressive. But I know you won't!

So, if you haven't taken a look, use this link : https://www.smmagic.com/blog1/?product=fraidy
I'm not being paid off from Dan to do this, but anyone who knows me knows I don't recommend too many props, and only to those who have really gone waaaay above on quality, service and the personal touch. Too many only criticize those that drop the ball, and fail to praise those who raise to a level beyond. That's what I'm doing now. Thanks, Dan (and if you ever read this, don't sell to anyone in my market!)

Dan showed me this last year, and I have to admit, it is gold! Fantastic prop that plays BIG, and requires very little skill. Dan will customize it to whatever critter you want. This is a fantastic prop.

Let me add my kudos to Dan and Smokey Mountain Magic. I talked with Dan about a custom set up for Fraidy in the morning. By mid afternoon he had drawings for me to approve and I got an email from him at 7:00 PM that it was ready to ship! After a few days I received the prop and it is awesome. Great experience that I am sure will not be my last with Smokey Mountain Magic.

Willing to share? I could spend my entire show fees on this prop alone, and Dan has never failed to deliver on my ideas.
