Hi Everyone

I have just purchsed from ebay 2 extremely cute
Lamb Chop Puppets which I intend to use in my preschool shows.

Last night my partner and I and a bottle of red wine discussed the idea of actually levitating the puppet.

However blame it on the wine or whatever but you drew a blank.

So does anyone know if there is anything on the market that could be used - or failing that is there any other Mini illusions that could be used with a puppet. Something self contained and portable. But Stunning

Any Ideas???

Look forward to hearing from you.

Isn't a levitating puppet called a marionette?

There are a lot of effects including levitation with ventriloquist dummies (that could be used for soft puppets too) in the book "Ventrilomagic". You can get the book from Maher Studios http://www.maherstudios.com

If it were me, I would just raise my hand in the air and say, "Looooooook, it's flyyyyyyyyying, just like Harry Potter!" In other words, play it for laughs, like most things in a kid show. But I work for the younger crowd.

I did levitate a white tiger - stuffed of course! - in a birthday show. "Now, this isn't one of those big shows you see on TV, where tigers fly in the air . . ." as the tiger floats up out of a box. Which, of course, I don't see until the kids tell me. How did I do it? Hey, the levitation was easy. The hard part was training the tiger to stay in the box!

Take a look at the mini asrah effect. It is designed for a levitation and vanish of a doll, but you could use the same concept and build something for a puppet.
