I also picked up some silly wands from David Kaye "silly billy" and those playing very strong too. Nice addition to the act- they are versatile. If you buy peakaboo bunny, I'd pick up two of these wands ($10 each). They are easy to fit in your magic act and they are loads of fun.

Never had that problem. If there is any problem with it I'm sure David will replace it. Try some spray silicone first???

Mine was a tiny bit sticky, not enough to even mention, but I used a very small amount of wax to make it glide smoothly, I think it is due to humidity , this will happen with wood and other materials.

Silicone and wood do not go well, it's too oily,

I thought of putting a bit of wax on it. I found though that by just making sure you push the **** up at the center of the gimmick, it wont get stuck.
Love this routine. Kids love it more.

Got mine...love it! Hint: Less tension made mine operate more smoothly. There are a couple of ways to make the adjustment(s).

I just thought I would add that I just performed this for the first time at a storytime outdoors at a park for about 100 people of varied ages this morning. It was great! Lots of screaming and laughter. The kids really were going crazy by the end. I took Regan's idea of lessening the tension, which is really simple to do, and it was easier/smoother to work with.

You don't need to add anything to the routine, but I thought I would share what I did in case it inspires anyone to use it in a new way. Plus, I'm new here so I want to be helpful, and I'm pretty new to performing magic in general, so I welcome any feedback.

I wanted to work something in with silks, because I was going to do some silk stuff later in the show. So, I tried to vanish a silk scarf in my hand by pushing it into my fist. I kept pushing it right through a few times so it ended up on the floor. I have seen Silly Billy do this, so I suppose it is fitting to add into a routine with his prop. Smile Finally, I said I was going to need some help from my friend - Robbie the Rabbit. I pulled him out and introduced him to the audience, then asked if he would help me vanish the scarf. I wrapped the silk around Robbie and pushed him into the hat. Then went through the normal routine, and when I opened the hat to see if Robbie had vanished the scarf, Robbie was gone, but the scarf was still there. (You can easily figure out how to do this if you have the prop.) Of course I panicked and found Robbie in the usual way.

It went over very well, and made the whole routine a bit longer, but like I said, this was my first public performance with the prop, so I'm sure I'll use it in a variety of ways going forward.

Sounds like a good idea.
I've used mine the silly billy way but maybe I'll add something more to the routine. Play w it a bit.
Love this rabbit.

I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Not quite as effective for the older kids unless they are in the audience with a lot of younger kids. Then they seem to laugh right along with them.
