I have to question to all you bunny users. I have thought about adding the benson bowl touritne to my close up act for years. Howevever, I close with sponge balls and do the chop cup 2 routines prior to the finale. What do y'all think of a benson bowl routine with sponge bunnies as a closer. The final oad can be a stuffed bunny, like a beanie baby or if I were a working pro, a gerbil or other small animal. I appreciate your input.

I would advise against using the Benson Bowl routine and the Chop Cup in the same performance, because the effect is so similar. And if you do the normal Benson Bowl routine, there is that interlude where the sponge balls are done in the spec's hand as a diversion. However, Don Alan did the Benson Bowl and the Chop Cup on the same set all the time.

Thanks Bill. I am very familiar with on Alan's Work. Including seeing him perform. That is the reason that I'd even consider it. Also with the bunnies It gives the illusion of a diffent routine. ie bunnies in their hutch.

Could be. The only real test is to perform it.

Hutch? Great idea, use a wooden box instead of a bowl.

Thanks pete. That helps to move the routine further away fro the concept of the "chop Cup" / Final load trick.

You could have the chop cup in a box, then use the box later for the bowl-type routine. Final load could be the return of the chop cup? (On it's side in the box).

I was thinking more in line with a toy stuffed bunny

There is a guy in Mill Town Indiana who is a potter. His name is Tom Crecelius. He does a Merlin act at some of the local Renaissance things. Anyway, he has some neat magic props made from earthenware and/or pottery. Among his items is an intersting variation on the Benson Bowl that is worth a look.

It's called the Ode to a Toad routine.

Tom is a friend of mine. He also runs a Tae Kwan Do school. He is very serious about magic and makes some really nice items.

You could use an Easter basket with the bunnies. Replace the handle with a ribbon handle so it sits flat when upside down.

The final load could be a larger stuffed bunny or an Easter Egg!

Or a matzo ball for the passover crowd.

Happy feast either way.

Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

Happy Holiday to Y'all!!!

PS I think I will purchase the ceramic toad house. It is a great looking prop and premise.
