I have to agree the coloring book is great trick to use. I use it I'm my office and the younger kids will come back for another visit and ask to see the coloring book again and again. Also I get a lot of play out of a squeeker, take their reappointment card draw a face on the back and push on the nose to make it squeek.
Hard for the parent to get the card back from the child. Sponge balls/bunnies are also great to use. Kids also seem to like a tt and silk. With older kids will do a tt and mismade bill and let them take the bill home.
I got intersted in magic because my pediatrician use to do magic when I went to his office. Always looked forward to going to his office when I was a kid.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm also a physician and have been coming back to magic after a presentation by Dr Chawla who regularly uses magic in the ER and office. He has a website http://www.magicandmedicine.ca

Magic is a great way to build rapport with patients. It also helps to "humanizing" the doctor, lowering barriers between us and the patients.

I use sponge bunnies every now and then or french drop the otoscope speculum. I've also been using Dr Chawla's disappearing pen effect which is so simple I never thought it would work, but it gets a great reaction from the kids (and the parents too...)

I agree that a squeaker is great and offers tons of possibilities. Also think about Crazy Man's Handcuffs, Snap Coin Vanish, and mouth coils... yeah... tons of mouth coils. Kids are absolutely fascinated by them.

Depending on the age, I would suggest Coloring Book for the younger children and sponge balls (or rabbts) for older. We have given both to our dentist, who has a fondness for magic. My daughter just suggested a spring animal would be fun and anything combined with give aways (stickers, plastic rings, etc).

Aristides, have you tried to administer Propofol or Valium as a reward, so they won't cry?

I am not a physician, and I don’t play one on the Magic Café; Aristides I am sure will not supply you with any, since he makes the kids dizzy with magic; that leave only Conrad Murray, when he gets out of jail, I hear he buys the stuff by the gallon and may have some left.

Kind of reminds me of the whiskey solution. It works! Too bad that stuff like that has a bad rap today.

I remember back in the 60's Acid (LSD) was a good remedy to alleviate any fear of the Doctor, or of any reality; too bad that had a bad rap LOL

Oh for cryin'...what's the matter with you guys? The D'LITES!! Using those things in front of a child will TOTALLY distract them from whatever is happening. Give a little kid one to 'hold' & squeeze so he 'absorbs' it, and tell him that makes things not hurt. Then afterward, remove it via his mouth.
Everybody wants to beleive.....we just help them along.

After reviewing the LSD studies of the '60s, I'd consider participating in a medically supervised experiment. The ideas generated from such a thing could make the experience quite lucrative. Too bad that the government made that illegal - so much for this being a "free country". The Netherlands look better with each passing day. LOL

Alan;

You’re my kind of cutting edge Magician; in the 60's I conducted my own medically supervised experiment; it was a very small study..

I funded the program, purchased the inventory and supervised distributing the medication to the volunteer participant,

It was a very successful study until the funding ran out and the government attempted to intrude on the research.
