You get what you pay for, if you are lucky.

If you want a cute alternative, there's a version (knock off?) of Hippity Hop Rabbits over at Daytona Magic called "Bunnynauts" - basically a Hippity Hop with an astronaut theme.

A little different twist. I've seen it, it's pretty well made, and the kids get engaged a little more with the outer space story...

If you don't want to spend the small fortune on the Wolf product, a good alternative might be the Supreme model, about $100. It's all metal, and the rabbit is proportionally larger to the house than the one shown above. A nicer model and one I've used happily for many years.

I agree. Someone who does smaller venues, maybe less often, does not need to buy expensive props. The audience does not have a clue.

If you treat a less expensive prop well, it will last. Of course, if it is too cheap, it could be a peice of crap. I have a 'knockoff' called Bakery Bear that has lasted me for 15 years and still looks great and works great (about $100)

No offense to Steve, but he is always pushing the expensive stuff Smile

I don't need a prop that can stand a nuclear blast Smile

I had and used an Abbotts "Run, Rabbit, Run" for YEARS. It was the smaller, all-wood version without a base, probably from the 1940s. Held up rather well, but I take care of all my props. Also had and used a junky Mexican-made bright yellow diebox that made it through thousands of shows. Nothing wrong with props like that at all. Matter of fact, in smaller venues, I use Mike Bent's "Pizza Oven Surprise". LOVE that routine and the pizza ends up on my back via the same method used in my Sliding Disc Box, using a magnet. No pins to worry about. Don't get me wrong, my Run, Wolf, Run has its place in medium-large shows, especially since I found the PERFECT case for it. No chance of damage now! I just figure that magic props, when cared for and used, are an investment. If I wanted to stop using my RWR, I could probably sell it for more than I paid for it (with that case)...that's something my wife certainly can't say when she buys another purse or pair of shoes!

Chance's tag line says it all, Built to perform and designed to collect.

I have one of his snake baskets, and I think I paid about $1100 for it a few years ago when he was building them. I have seen one go on Ebay for over $2000. that's a pretty incredible return on an investment for only a few years. My problem is I don't think I could ever part with my basket...lol, so I don't think Im ever going to make a dime on it...lol But to me as collector peice its priceless. I don't think I could eve take that prop on the road and abuse it in shows, I want to leave it in prestine condition, keep for just showing friends and family and other magicians, special occasions etc. So I can see how the cheaper models of something can be very appealing in that regard. I would probably do the same or buy two of chance's and keep one for performing and the other for collection, if I could afford it two of whatever I was buying that is.

That's how I feel about my Wolf's Magic "Outhouse", too!

To me those two don't fit together. If I bought any of that expensive Wolf stuff I'd be too paranoid to use it! Five or six shows every weekend - it's going to get scuffed or damaged.

As it is I replace everything that gets touched by a child in the show once or twice a year (sponges, silks, ropes and paper items that get dirty etc) anyway.
