What an adorable kids effect this is: colorful, entertaining with very well made wooden props and a great story line. For any kids entertainer how can you not love a routine that begins …
“Poor Tommy he’s hiding behind the lily leaf because he doesn’t have a bow tie to attend the annual hop at Toad Mansion”, to which he wanted to take his girlfriend Natalie Natterjack, (here you explain to the children she is a very special lady toad and they are very rare, so that is why Tommy wants to be the one to show her off to all the other ordinary toads). Otherwise Bertie Bullfrog, would want to take her because he has a beeee-autiful bow tie!”
This item is similar in effect to Harries Bow-Tie Mystery or Supreme’s Tiddly-Hi-Tie but the method is different and in this version the tie disappears from the box and appears attached to Tommy’s neck as he stands embarrassed behind the lily leaf (which looks like a mushroom to me!). The vanish and appearance work very well and are easy to do.
