Re: "Bet it plays good for kids and family entertainment"

It does! Great table hopping trick for family groups because it's intantly reset. This was a sellout at the S.A.M. in Pittsburgh where I had some before it's 'official" release.

Qua-Fiki hopped on this one as soon as it was advertised. He added in a version of "Dots Impossible" using black hats and red hats, which also allows him to show the hat cards on both sides, so once he segues into the Hare Raising Hats, the ending is that much more surprising. Then he follows up with a sponge bunny routine.

The Hare Raising Hats trick only needs a table when placing the cards down prior to the finale, so for strolling without a table, Qua-Fiki hands the rabbit cards to three kids to hold. The hat cards are placed over the bunny cards and the kids then get to turn over the hat cards to discover the amazing transformation for themselves, and their noisy surprise adds to the effect immensely. Thanks for a great trick, Paul!

Yes, I've done the same, if there is no table space you simply hand each produced rabbit card to someone asking, "Will you just hold that for me please?" Usually I've given them to the same person (you don't always have three kids available)and then have someone else hold their hand out to deal the hat cards onto, or use the other hand of the same person, enabling you to easily take the rabbit cards back before the climax. Some may prefer to do it this way even if there is a little table space because the final reveal then happens in their hands (always good). However, if there is a little table space, and you don't need much, I think the table display looks good - and the cards will probably last longer, lol.

I think restaurant entertainers are going to be the magicians that appeciate this one the most. It's just the perfect packet trick for family groups.

Looking forward to trying this out. I may have to finally swap my sponge balls for the Goshman 3D rabbits!

You might also want to check out the Eddie Ace sponge rabbits - and the rest, lol. Eddie was at the Pittsburgh S.A.M. with his wares, he has some great stuff.

I also have a good instant reset routine for the sponge bunnies in my book "Magic From The Overground" detailed in the chapter discussing strolling magic. I don't think I would routine Hare Raising Hats and sponge bunnies in the same 'set' but I can understand why people might want to.

Paul -- I use your routine for the sponge bunnies from "Overground". It's easy, simple, and the reset is truly a part of the routine.

I'd love to obtain these new cards. The graphics are great!

Glad to hear from someone that's actually using it, Trekdad, lol. Yes, the graphics on these cards are great (better than the ones I originally supplied Meir with!). Currently Hare Raising Hats is only available from Meir or myself.

Great trick! Also, Paul's books are the most overlooked in magic.

Agreed. I also think Paul is an incredible entertainer in his own right. His Card Magic dvds are wonderful. Keep meaning to get his mentalism set.

I've used the poker-sized version since it first came out, and "hopped" on the release of the larger size cards. Very happy these were released in the larger size. Not a criticism by any means, but the one thing I wish was included in the instructions are some tips on doing the Elmsley Count with the cards face-out at chest-height, since this release is with cards visible when performing for a larger group than my typical 4-top. Managed to figure it out anyway despite my "muscle" memory" of the count with the cards held lower. Definitely a great effect for all ages and wonderful graphics. Highly recommended by my various audiences.
