Sorry man, are you trying to tell one?

To some of you and I mean that to a certain few that actualy believe I may not have been serious about this whole fiasco...oh but I was, I WAS. Matter of fact since this threads creation I've done more magic with lighters than I thought possible.

There are two or three reasons why I dropped fire from my kids act:
1/ I kept forgetting matches / lighters
2/ Myself and my props would smell of smoke and lighter fluid (especially my dove pan).
3/ Increase in very sensitive smoke detectors
4/ Insurance

However a family show is different, if mums and dads present with a clean family presentation I think fire is OK but for a kids birthday party a big no no.

Thank you for you review, but also thank you for the hint/the link in the children section.

As a retired fire prevention officer, I'll tell you two things:
1 kiddies CAN and do light childproof lighters lighters, and cause damage. We had a school burn to the ground, because a student lit some paper on the wall on fire.

2 teaching lighters and matches are tools not toys is OK, showing fire or fire play as magical is just plain irresponsible.

Whether I agree with you or not - and I don't, as it happens - why bring this up after six years?

I used matches to perform the Baking A Cake in that routine. The cake, magically made, was delicious. I also light my Fantasio Candle before vanishing.

I think people here are over reacting on both sides of the argument. Do what you feel is right for you.

i tend to lean toward this thinking, I've used fire in my shows before and as a kid practicing my magic I should have burnt down my house numerous times.

I think Barry Mitchell recommended using "magic fire" in your show. meaning not fire from matches or lighters but perhaps from fickle fire gimmick. I would think
that is the best option if fire is used in kids shows.

Remember...... Tony doesn't use fire with kids........ just teachers.
