For many years I purposely stayed away from sponge balls because "everyone does them" and I'm better than that, right? Well a couple of years ago after seeing the new (at the time) 3D sponge bunnies, I thought I'd give it a try. That trick is amazing for kids and easily my best close up trick for kids. They call them classics for a reason--because they work!

Sponge Balls have always been a winner. Anytime you can make the magic happen
in someone's hands, it has great power.

Here's another fun walkaround bit... use the fortune telling fish as an opener. It's a great ice-breaker... I just walk up to the group and say, "I have a free gift for everyone here!" Hand out the fish, do a little number like, "hold out your palm,
let it connect with the universe..." and then watch the fish dance.

It's dorky and not really magic but it's very, very fun and everyone loves it.

Mark Byrne's Twinkle Twinkle is an incredible strolling routine for kids and families. A fun filled 5 minutes, lots of magic and instant reset.

I recently worked a strolling gig for kids and families, a rotary function with 24 tables of 10 each. I performed a couple different sets including Scotty York's Candy Kiss Machine, a rising card, Kennedy Mystery Box (letting the kids draw pictures on their card, they loved it!) and Twinkle Twinkle, among a few others.
The Candy Kiss Machine went over HUGE but Twinkle Twinkle started to be requested by tables that saw me doing "the magic stars" from as far away as across the auditorium!

I highly recommend Twinkle Twinkle!

I do a lot with coins and make it funny. The kids love it. I have just started doing the same moves with wooden nickels and letting the kids keep it after I am done. BTW the wooden nickels have my information and picture on them. They keep those things longer then a business card Smile

I combine silent coin routines with either music(harmonica, mosquito whistle and washboard tie.)

My walk around and my set shows are very puppet heavy...(he's not heavy, he's my.......actually my John, my size 7 vent figure is pretty heavy and even though he has lots of bells and whistles, John doesn't get out for walk arounds...)

Hey guys, this has been super helpful for me, as I'm about to start working at a sort of neighborhood gastropub which has a "family time" couple of hours on the weekends. Lots of what I guess you could call "hipster" parents will be bringing their kids, and it's been a struggle to figure out what I can do that I don't need to lug around a case for (there's really nowhere I can store my bag, etc. and reset will have to be done hiding behind the bar).

I'm actually going to do a couple of Tenyo tricks (we have red pandas at our local zoo, aka firefoxes, and I got the Tenyo version of this guy who is like Rocky Raccoon), along with Angry Sponges, but I am a little concerned with damage to the props Smile

Anyway, seems like Twinkle Twinkle is going into the act... plus I love the idea about wooden nickels! Thank you all
