Greetings all,

I'm new to the world of kids magic. I'd like your opinion on whether cups and balls would be an appropriate trick for a kids show.

Depends on the amount off kids you're working for. It's a close up trick. No good for large audiences.

All the best, Billy

Hello Zack

Yes the cups and balls work well with kids, I've done very simple routines for 4 and five year olds and full routines for older children finishing with full final loads.

It's a case of making the routines simple and entertaining (which incidently should be the case for adult based rouitnes).

Billy makes a good point, but the format of the presentation is unlimited. The Cups are not just a close up effect, you could get the kids stood around in a semi circle like a street performance and depending on the size of the cups this could be a stage effect.

Check out some of the really good topics regarding the cups and balls on the street magic board.

Regards

Simon

By the way Billy, and I'm sure you are already aware of this but both 'Billy' and 'Whizz' are slang terms for Amphetamine (speed).

HI,
You can make it bigger I once saw Mark Raffles performing for a lay audience + me in Yates wine lodge in Blackpool
and he does the cups and balls with the cheap plastic flower pots (sprayed silver and 2" sponge balls. He uses baby Chicks as final loads you may not want to go that far!
