Received a Fraidy Cat Rabbit today - Abbott's version.

Any of you find that the sticker on the ga** is not in line with the plaque behind it?

This is soooo not what I expect for paying $120.

Thanks,

That was my concern when I first bought the trick, but to be frank, after doing it for several years, I find that the kids get so wrapped up in the gags and sucker effect that they don't notice or comment on it AT ALL! So my advice is don't worry about how it looks to you, just focus on getting the maximum laughs and entertainment from it!

Here's a clip of me doing the effect for kids here in HK...

My apologies to those who have seen this before on another thread!

Tod, I agree Abbott's should pay to have it returned and replaced.

I agree as well. If you are paying the money, they should ensure a top quality product. If it is not aligned right, then they should fix it for you or send you a new one that is correct.

I've always had good luck with Abbott's standing behind their products. Give them a call or email and I'm sure they will be willing to make things right!

If you can buy one that was made in the beginning they come up on ebay from time to time. I have 2 the first from Gene Gordons shop in Buffalo. The second is also from there and I bought that one at flea market for less than I bought my original for. Amazing find in Mount Dora Rennigers flea market. The guy didn't know what it was. I find that much of what it out there today for the BIG bucks is not near as good as the original pieces. Sad quality seems to be out the window. There are exceptions to be sure.

I use to order with Abbotts. I can't take it no more with them. One time I received a "used" Dove Balloon Tray. They do not care what they send you.

Thanks, everyone.

It's either a failure of pride by those building them for Abbott's, or Abbott's failing to do QA on their incoming products.

Of course they'd undoubtedly say they just get too many products in to do this, but other companies don't seem to have this problem.

So, I find this without excuse for so much money.

Getting back to Fraidy Cat Rabbit. I love performing that sucker trick for the kids. I use the jumbo version from Mak Magic: http://www.makmagic.com/search.asp?scope......F&page=9

Yes, a newly updated version from Chance certainly would be nice!

There is nothing to update this effect is timeless works for every show I do.

I still do Gene Gordons gags in my routine.

I bet Chance Wolf can think of something for an update. Did you see the ending he updated Hip Hop Magician with?

Zim, I was speaking of artwork, but Dynamike is right also.

I do not agree maybe the artwork but what else it there to add to it ? It works already and works well . I think the stuff form wolff is amazing by the way before somone thinks I am slamming them.

The shape can be different too. Fraidy Cat Rabbit is rectanglar. Hippity Hoppity is rectanglar also. But picture what Chance Wolf did to it. That guy is clever and creative.

I have a custom version of this that a guy here in Michigan by the name of Steve Ryder made. Best guess offhand is that the "card" is about 18" in height and all of the artwork is very colorful and "cartoonish". Kind of a neat piece, but I don't use it anymore - it just sits in the collection.

Today I was thinking that one possibility is this:

A movie star rabbit inside his Hollywood dressing room.

Chance could redesign the rabbit and door frame quite easily to that.

And I bet it would look like a million dollars!
