I just saw the new Duck Bucket type of prop from Michael @ Wack-o-magic. It's a GREAT utility prop... and its more accessible since it's not a wood bucket.. it's a METAL mini-trash can!!

I'm going to use the environmental routine that came with it.. mostly.. with some changes to suit me more in Canada.

My last duck bucket had a thinner mirror, but I was surprised at this one! It's made with thick mirror... and it's backed in 1/2 inch plywood.. that's a sturdy gimmick!! Probably sturdier than the trashcan!

Even if the trash can gets some dents if I'm not careful... all the better... it IS a garbage can after all.

The split lid stays up on spring hinges.. and also stay down on spring hinges, and all sharp metal edges are covered with rubber trim.

The price is nice at $229 since it comes with a blow up globe and a super cute Teddy Bear!!

I couldn't tell what routines were suggested and included other than their names. The prop otherwise looks pretty cool.

Where did you see it? Did you purchase it? Have you used it in a show yet?

The routines that come with it:
1: is a routine for young kids about a teddy bear who's very clumsy and ends up in the trash, and vanishes, only to be rescued by a fiary princess at the end of the story.. the teddy bear is included!!

2: The second is a recycling/ environmental routine that starts with a sad, deflated earth globe... has lessons involved.. productions.. and finally the "earth" is blown up at the end.. starting to recover.

The prop is super sturdy, and comes in a shipping/ carrying case that is surprisingly durable.. though you'll recognize it immediately.

I have only 10 left.... they're selling out to magicians who do school shows WORLD WIDE! Environmental magic is HUGE business right now.. and this is the PERFECT prop.

I don't have a palce for it in any of my acts atm. But IF I did I think Id paint it green and put a recycle sign on it and then do a routien where I put recyclable trash in it and "recycled" it into recycled products.

Would be a great educational thing for a school show Smile
