I know this probably shouldn't be here, and everybody probably knows this anyway, but hopefully this will be of some help to someone out there...

The other day I stumbled on an interesting new product which allows you to actually catch and hold bubbles!

The product is somewhat originally entitled "Catchabubble" and is distributed by Pocko's (www.pockos.com), this would be so cool for a kids show...

Any other "exciting" new products out there full of magical potential?
...and brilliant people should cross each others cycles, like some of the nicest planets.

First of all, what does this have to do with card magic? Second, the bubble thing really doesn't have that much magic potential. That;s my opinion. Smile

This may not have much to do with card magic, but I disagree that catching a soap bubble does not have much potential. For years I performed a trick in my kids shows with the glass set of imitation bubbles sold for the Multiplying soap Bubbles. It really got even adults when I blew bubbles and apparently caught them in the air. I placed them in a cloth bagwhich later changed them to real ball, xmas baubles, etc. I realise that this new gimmick, incorporated with such props, can produce an innovative routine.

This stuff isn't that new. I bought a bottle of someting similar about two years ago. You need to be careful with it, though...it does leave a bit of a residue after the bubble has "popped." (Usually it just gets a hole and the air flows out.)

As far as it having magic potential, Jeff McBride used it at the beginning of his show last year in Atlantic City. He didn't do a whole lot with it, but jsut before the show began, he and Abbi were in the back of the house blowing the bubbles over that audience. It provided lots of amusement, especially for those who caught them or had them land on their head. Smile

Whats old is new. I have used them as part of my coin routine. Thanks for stimulating my mind. There might be a nearly normal card routine. Perhaps signed card to bubble.
Since the wand only allows for smaller size bubbles I would have to use the Mercury F.

Bubbles, Cards and Kids of all ages.

Yes I do card magic for kids,(about 9 and up)
The plot has to be very straight forward, such as 4 card matrix(love them coins) and the 4 cards changing to either the kids age ie(10's) or to earlier selected cards (via Curry T.O).

The card is not in the bubble, but appears
when the bubble is popped. Sort of like flash coins, the coins are not in the paper they just appear to morph out of the flame.

First of all I didn´t think this was about card magic as it is under the kids section.

Second some excellent magic can be done using bubbles, I too use the glass bubble to do a switch.

Kids of all ages love bubbles.

Smile Older kids like me prefer these bubbles
