Geckos a go go
The Classic Cards Across designed for the kids performer in mind. Absolutely no sleight of hand involved! Allowing you to concentrate on your presentation. You can add this into your show today...
You begin by showing/counting 10 cards. Each card has a picture of a kid friendly cartoon Blue Gecko, these are set aside. Next, you show 10 Black and white cartoon geckos, these too are set aside. A number is given from 1-3, when that number is announced, you pick up the Blue Geckos, (say the number called out is 3), you begin to count the Blue Geckos one at a time from hand to hand and there are only 7 Blue Geckos.
Walking over to the Black and White Geckos, you pick them up and begin to count, there are now 13 Geckos. Three of the Blue Geckos are found in the middle of the Black and White Gecko cards. The three Blue Gecko cards are removed and you ask the audience if they know how the Geckos jumped from one pile to the other. You now turn the Gecko cards over as you say "they use springs" and on the back of the Gecko cards are big red springs printed on the backs of the cards!
A fabulous kicker ending that the standard cards across doesn't have! This is so easy to do, you will laugh as you see the cards actually vanish during practice. This can be played up watching each Gecko invisibly run around the room, finally stopping at the Black and White cards. Absolutely no sleight of hand required! Complete with custom cards and full routine!!
