Anyone see the great writeup in Magic magazine recently on a silk & TT routine?

I thought it was great and gave some great ideas.

I will have to go back and read that. I have not had as much time recently to review my magazines.

No, I didn't see it. Can you explain it to us?

Was this a TT effect that was geared towards a children's audience? I used to do a TT effect that was all told around the story of William Tell and shooting an arrow through an apple on the kid's head.

Instead of the arrow (toy bow and arrow with suction cup on it), I end up taking a silk and vanishing the silk and having that end up inside an apple that the child has inside a napkin that he is holding above his head.

It is a funny routine and quite comical for the kids. I am wondering if this might be along those same lines.

Everytime I used to do it, kids loved it. I think the reason was that it was a fun routine that made them laugh. It had all the elements that kids seem to fall in love with.

- Kids gets to dress up like robin hood
- a lot of comedy that is played as I keep messing it up
- the silly toy bow and arrow with the suction cup always gets a laugh
- the magic really is magical and the parents love the trick in itself
- the intro music for the routine sets the mood
- the story takes them back in time and also teaches them a bit about history

All of my tricks I always try to present as full routines. These routines have story lines, themes and comedy. It gives the kids much more to connect with and therefor enjoy it so much more.

Besides the trick is so easy, that it allows me to concentrate on having more fun.

I just recently brought back my nearly normal version of this.

I had taken it out since "everyone was doing it."

A Classic is still a great classic when as Kyle mentioned put together in a nice routine.(not just stuffing and gone)

I always like to tell stories in my kids shows as I find I get to have more fun with it. I think this is because I get to teach them about history, get to dress them up and it leads me a lot of opportunity for comedy. It just seems to work for me and the kids really enjoy it.

This routine I mentioned above is really so easy to do but it goes back to the thought that it really is not so much the trick you perform as it is the presentation and entertainment that you give to them.

Frank, this was a great article and routine using the silk and TT. I was curious to see the "wow" factor and practised it up and went to a local elementry school and tried it out. They freaked out way beyond what I expected the routine to do. I have decided to incorporate parts of it into my show. Just guessing, I believe it was in August's or September's issue. It is worth checking out.

This is also an ideal opportunity to use a 12" diamond cut silk that looks like an 18" silk but takes the same space as a 9" square silk.
