A rare beauty from Alan’s earliest days 🙂 Alan released Alphabet Antics all the way back in 1976 when he was focused on producing both children’s magic and his fledgling mini-magic line. This is a perfect routine for younger children and it has everything:
- Large clear props with bright colors
- Interactive participation with the Children
- Potential for back and forth fun as they draw the letters.
- Multiple magical moments
- Problem Solving: how do get make Orange from these wands or Green?
- Satisfying conclusion when all the Children’s hard work pays off
- Easy to perform
- Quick to set-up.
The block has a few paint chips but this is in amazing condition and will look great as a center piece of your Alan Warner collection and is also ready to entertain your grand children with 🙂
Effect: The performer invites several children to assist him to change a plain black cube into a colourful alphabet block by magic.
FIRST THE LETTERS FOR THE BLOCK ARE MADE… This creates a lot of fun as the children are instructed to “finger draw” the letters designated by the performer. After various bits of business, the performers “peels off” the invisible letters that the children have drawn in the air, and drops them into the upturned cover. The cover is then inverted and dropped over the PLAIN BLOCK. One of the children then uses a white wand to make the letters appear on the block. The performer opens the door to show that this has indeed happened: A LARGE WHITE ‘A’ can now be seen in front of the block!
NOW THE BLOCK HAS TO MADE MORE COLOURFUL … This time the children use YELLOW, RED, AND BLUE coloured wands to bring about this change.
Finally, the performer lifts the cover again to reveal that the plain black block is now A BRIGHT YELLOW with RED, BLUE, ORANGE, AND GREEN LETTERS ON ITS SIDES.
COLOURFUL APPARATUS…MYSTERY…AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION! All the essentials of children’s entertainment.
