I had to laugh, Andy, that happened to me once!

I'll do a show for three year olds any day! You have to start off gentle, then keep it moving, keep it funny, and make the magic more "surprise magic" where something unexpected happens.

Out of all the ages I do shows for, I'd have to say the four-year-olds are actually my favorite group! While they won't get the magic the sixes and sevens understand, their laughter is so heartfelt that they are a joy to work for. And their laughter makes the adults crack up. A bonus!

Once, years ago, a daycare pulled a switch on me and gave me an audience of all twos! I simplified a few helper tricks, shortened the show, and spent more time petting the dove and bunny. It worked out well but wasn't as much fun for me since they wouldn't get my jokes! Smile

I have put together a Toddler Show for the under 5's. However, even for that my limit would be children around one who cannot speak or walk. My Show does include some interaction. So as a rule, if all of them can't walk or speak, them I tell the client they are too young for me. However, if there is a mixed group with some 2 to 4, then I can do the Show. Cheers!
