See Samuel Smith and David Risley who both use their puppets extensively.

I'm in the market for a rabbit puppet that isn't in a hat. One with a full body or perhaps just with arms. It should be a white rabbit. Any suggestions on who makes such a rabbit. Thanks.

I know there are several rabbit-in-hat puppets available, but which is the best one? They're not all good quality...there's one that I've seen that looks like a used rug.

Also, since I'm an adult, it needs to fit an adult-sized hand.

Any suggestions?

Hi Jeff,

This is an awfully old post, but I wondered if you ever got an answer. I purchased a very nice Rabbit in the Hat Puppet from One Way Street (onewaystreet.com). They also sell a book of ideas and routines for the prop, titled "Realm of the Rabbit." If you've already made a purchase I hope it was a good one because I like mine a lot!

Hi Jim, I brought a rabbit puppet from http://www.axtell.com I brought it about 3 months ago and my work has increased loads since. If you want, I can send you a short video clip of the rabbit in action. PM me if you want me to send it.

Best wishes, Billy Smile

As usual, Den is right on!

Sammy Smith uses a rabbit puppet; in one routine, it does no magic and Sammy doesn no vent work.
But it absolutely blows the audience away.
Kids must be enthralled.
Myself, I was laughing so hard I almost fell off my chair!

Sammy Smith's routine is in his book, "Kiddie Patter and Little Feats".

Denny & Lee's web site has a rabbit in the hat puppet. I don't own it, but it looks nice from the picture.

Phillip,

Do you remember Sooty? I saw Sooty/Harry Corbett as a child in the US on a couple of rare occasions and still remember him decades later. If you have any recollections of Sooty, you might consider sharing them with your US colleagues. There are wonderful lessons in presenting a puppet act in those performances.

Hi Opus,
Yes I do remmember Sooty (infact I use a sooty puppet in my adult cabaret for a gag.
However Sooty was not really a big hit with me and I could not tell you much about the show. Basil Brush I found to be more my style of entertainment.

I have a cool puppet that looks like you are holding rabbit by the waist with both hands. He moved by himself and looks very real!

I think it is Tenyo (!?)

I would suggest getting a puppet with an entrance for your hand in the back.

Although I don't use one it would seem like that would give you more "play" and realism than one with the hole in the bottom.

For those that have used it could you please share your personal experience.

There is a routine in the book called Lights Camera magic (I think that is the title) Sammy Smith (SPS Magic)sells it.

where can Garret's routine be found?

My RITH-puppet is one of my favorite routines. I start off with the venerable Top Hat Surprise paper tear. Then I hold the (tissue paper) bunny in my teeth. Lifting a large cloth off the table, I cover the bunny for two seconds. When the cloth drops, it is "real" -- ok, at least it is a puppet.

At that stage in the show, all the parents suddenly become interested Smile

cheers, Doug

The RITH puppet is one of the most requested routines I do (besides the hanky mouse). My 5 year old son still asks to talk to and play with "Benny" the bunny. It amazes me how he can live in imagination and the real world at once. My son will grab Banny's paw and tell Benny that it is my finger inside. When Benny gets "upset", my son will apologize and give Benny a hug. Gotta love a kids imagination. Smile

A kid's imagination is the real magic. Kids live in a magical fantasy world all the time, and if we can tap into that in our routines, then the kids are sure to enjoy the entertainment value.
