Hi, Bobby: Do a search to find at least three threads already going with reviews.
Like Bonnie Raitt said, "I miss Little Feat more than I miss being 8 years old." Long live Lowell and Richie!

Thanks for steering me in the right direction. I did search and came up empty, I must have searched the wrong threads.

No problem, glad to be of help.

Most discussions here on the Café about Little Man have been deleted. Only certain selected threads remain.

Why have Little Man posts been deleted I wonder?
If Max Maven has a drivers license, why doesn't he drive?

Probably because of some very over reactive comments because it didn't come out on time. It is a fantastic concept for childrens storytelling magic.

There are other reasons why, but that was not one of them. Smile

I hear that all 250 Little Men are almost sold out. Janet has stated that the price will go up to $400 after thhe first batch has been sold. If you really want Little Man, get him now before it goes up $100. In our economy right now, a savings of $100 is pretty darn good.

Mine arrived and I am SOOOOOO Glad I bought one!

I wasn't sure at first as I went thru the material.....and of course I had to skip ahead and wouldn't you know I couldn't quite get LM working the way it was presented..... then I finally gave up and decided to allow the DVD to play thru as it was designed to do... and guess what? IT WORKS EXTREMELY WELL! It's easy and fun to perform... I am having LM travel along a few face down miniature cards and then he stops and turns at a card....it's turned over and proves to be the selected card. I made a little Wand out of a piece of toothpick and it looks great! Lots of possibilities here and I'm hoping we'll see some additional ideas as folks start working with this...

They offer up several ideas on the DVD...and it seems to be made very well. I am confident with reasonable care it will last a long, long time, if not forever.

With a little extra effort and I mean just a "little" as suggested on the DVD you can make the thing entirely examinable.....I believe adults and kids a like will enjoy this.....

I intend, at least for now, to keep using the little bag.... I like it. I saw Ben Harris' idea of using a book and I think I may try that as well at some point but for now, I'm quite content with the Black Bag.
This isn't going to be for everybody but then nothing is.....and some are asking, "is it worth $300??? I guess everyone will have to answer that for themselves...as For me, I'm quite happy I bought one and feel I received a quality piece of Magic that people won't be seeing on every corner etc.

Take it from me...don't jump a head, take the time to enjoy the full DVD and you will likely yourself a little time... Why is it I can't seem to learn that? Smile

All my best,

Bk

I thought from the adds and the demo, everything can immediately be handed out for inspection. Are you saying that a little something has to be done first? Thanks for the review.

All little man props can be immediately examined at the end of the effect. This covers a "reasonable" examination. But if you're working for specs who will go after the props with a jack hammer and blow torch there is a quick one time addition you can make to the props to satisfy that crowd. The only reason we made this an option, instead of supplying it that way...is that it adds another 30 seconds or so to the re-set time. And for most audiences, the current level of examinability
holds up just fine.

So what Law school did you go to anyhow?...Just kidding... Smile I understand your point.
Yes you can hand out anything you want to right away for I guess.... However, depending on how you feel about your spectator one may want to take the "small" extra step in your preparation to add a bit more security. Personally because it's such a small thing to do I'll probably take the time to add this little bit of safety...just in case I run into a "demolition expert". Once done, you shouldn't have to re-do it for several performances...so it really shouldn't add prep time after it's initially done for some time to come. Believe me, it's no big deal.....

Lol.

Never been to law school, but my wifes uncle owns a law firm here in Regina. One of the bigger firms in Sask. His two sons (my wife's cousin) also work there as lawyers.

It's nice having family members who are doctor's and lawyers. I get a lot of free advice. Smile

Just to be clear and not to mislead anyone.... In my opinion you would be much better off taking the extra step. I think that while you may get away with it, it's much safer to take the extra precaution if you intend to put the props into someone hands.

I asked this question on another posting area on LM but never received an answer from owners of Little Man. Are there any problems associated with performing the effect outside -- such as if it's too warm, sunny, breezy, or chilly -- or is this an effect meant for indoors?
Thanks.

Hello Fib

Just because you are dealing with modeling dough or clay, I would think if it gets too hot on a sidewalk or outside you could risk the clay melting or getting too sticky to use. Have not heard of this problem, but just assuming it might.

Thank you...by the way, an awkward question, what's your association with Little Man...are you the Little Woman?
