Hi-What do you use your jumbo props for? Ginn reccomends them in his books, and I have some but im not sure what to use them for! I have the jumbo scissors, band aid, toothbrush, sunglasses, comb, and thermomoter-I use the toothbtush as a "wand"-I tell them wave the magic wand and give them the toothbrush "by accident"-What do you use yours for? Thanks! Josh
If a magician is not intending to "trick" a spectator, why is every "trick" called a magic "trick"?

Hi Josh. I picked up a sponge camera a couple of years ago from a company in Pennsylvania who produces them. Sorry I can't at this time remember their name but it plays well. It mesures about 2.5 ft long and foot deep and high. You can hide things inside the camera to play it up with pictures of animals and such when you take the kids picture. It works well with the younger kids but I find it loses a little with the pre teens.

The giant band-aid can be use in any danger effect such as visable sawing, Head Chopper, Hand Chopper, etc. A nice routine is in Chris Carey's Do the Things You Do II.

The toothbrush get a laugh when you try to brush your teeth, then comb you hair, then bursh you underarms. It appears to be a great followup when you "accidently" give the toothbrush as a wand. The comb also works the same way. Use wax paper and make a Kazoo out of it.

The jumbo sissors can be used in any rope trick, a funny routine is when they actually cut the rope with it (Professor's Dream or magnetic rope).

The Sun gleass can be used as a spot gag when some one flashes a camera, or in bright lights. It can be also used when something disappears, "can't see it..Put on the magic glasses"

As with any prop, your imagination allows you to thing creative things which can be funny.

I keep the jumbo comb and toothbrush on hand before my shows in case it's taking some time to get all the kids ready and sitting down. I make a great show of getting myself ready for the show with these items while they're getting settled

Snidini,
Are are you talking about Peachy Kean? Steve is a very funny man that makes wonderful foam props. I have one of his cameras he makes a few styles, and yep I have a collection of funny pickets too, I find greeting cards are a great source for them, I have a little mirror, well it's shinny cardboard too that I pull out and a picture of me... Means I put the film in backwards. Peachy Kean also makes foam Dove Pan productions sold by many magic dealers.
I have really Big binoculars with eyeballs that move up and down really a hoot! I have a big collection of big props you know us clowns!
