I like the effect. I already have too many rabbits effects in my act. Instead of using Run Rabbit Run, I use Run Dino Run. I changed Afraidy Cat Rabbit to Afraidy Cat Frog. I am presently using Sponge Rabbits, a Rabbit Puppet and a rabbit appearance effect. I was thinking about making my own with a different animal.

I'm with you, Mike. I wish that fewer props had the rabbit theme. I get that it's a symbol related to magic, but variety is nice.

Then again, when people like you and I make props without rabbits, it helps to make our programs different and sets us apart from the pack.

Based upon this thread I ordered one yesterday. Looking forward to working with it. Fortunately I don't have a plethora of performing bunnies.

Hey Dynamike! What kind of rabbit puppet do you use? A rabbit in hat puppet? I bought one from Abbot's a few months ago, and it wasn't good. Top heavy and horrible shedding. Nothing like it used to be. Or do you use a rabbit puppet with no hat?

I don't know the manufacture. I use the same brand Benny uses:

Sorry everyone. Done hijacking the post. I too use peekaboo bunny in almost every show. As Robin said, it plays so well with 4-6 year olds. I've found that 7 or maybe 8 year olds begin to tire of it a bit more quickly. But not always. Obviously depends on the personality of the crowd. I like what Tommy James does to the prop. He outlines the slot where the bunny rests on BOTH surfaces so the disappearance looks more realistic. Cliffd, I love that silk idea. I'll definitely try that out to make the effect more magical. Thanks for sharing that!

Yes. But the photo shows the hat inside out compared to mine.

With my hat the playing cards design is on the outside. The inside of the hat is black. On the photo it is vice versa.

I could be wrong but the Rabbit in Hat in the video and the photo looks like the one from:

You are correct, Jimmy. The only difference is the inside of mine is black. The manufacture does not make all with the same pattern.

Now that I notice the price, that seems like a different manufacture. I got mine for $75. The link Jimmy provided matches mine more.

I don't think you'll be disappointed, I got one and love it. I had used fraidy cat rabbit-similar to capehart's routine previously and really enjoy the back and forth with the kids it gets, but in the end it's a sucker trick and one kid in particular always gets the worst of it. With Peek a boo bunny it's just as in the demo-the kids are all laughing and having fun, not trying to prove you wrong-I like that.

This was the original model offered by Silly Billy.
