Paul Romhany has a trick called "Happy Faces" that would fit this theme.

At one time it was sold separately, but it's also available as part of "Wild Card Tricks for Kids".

It's on the AmazeKids website, and others.

I received a used package of "Wild Card Tricks for Kids", and it had poker sized set of cards for "Copy Cats" and for "Happy Faces", but it also has a large size set of cards for "Happy Faces". I'm not sure if that's the standard packaging (to include the large cards) or the two items combined.

Emoji faces are easy enough to draw on silks and color-in using silk paints (Dharma Trading Co. Source), so you could, for instance make a set of Emoji silks with which to perform a 20th century silk routine, or to use in a set of knotted silks, or a dancing hank, etc. If you have a lot of time on your hands between now and your performance date, you could make all kinds of Emoji silks to produce one after the other, telling an Emoji story as each face appears.

You can also draw (or computer print) Emoji faces on blank face cards to perform wild card themed tricks that do NOT require that all the cards be exactly the same, as described in Qua Fiki's "Wild Reindeer Games":
https://www.magicnook.com/WizJ23/wizj23-......ames.htm

Or a Homing Card trick as in Qua Fiki's "Big, Bad Bunnies":
https://www.magicnook.com/WizJ25/wizj25-10BigBadBunnies.htm

Or a Six Card Repeat that does not require that all the cards be exactly alike, as in my "Attractive Cards":
https://www.magicnook.com/WIZJ32/wizj32-......ards.htm

Qua Fiki's "Go Fish Card Tricks Book" could just as easily become an Emoji Card Tricks Book with a variety of packet-type effects that can easily be made:

Or apply his "One Fish, Two Fish Color Sponge Ball Routine" techniques from The Wizards' Journal #20 to make 3-D sponge Ball Emojis instead of fish:

There's also this - "Mood Swing" by Matt Fore:

BTW, in the (first) demo video for "Smile Maker 2.0" on Barry Mitchell's website, he has a routine towards the end that uses Super Screen (with various smile emojis on the panels), Smile Maker (smiley sponge balls), and also a smile banner.

If you decide to make sponge ball Emoji's, begin by popping them out of someone's cell phone and end by pushing them back inside.

Joe, if it is a strolling event I use emojication from Ronjo. It consists of two identical sets of emoji cards where you both mix up the cards and you predict what they wil lay down by laying your card down first. I use this al the time in my restaurant gig. Plays great and you can repeat as it always has a different outcome. Good looking props. I think it is $20.00
