The NEW Tail Spin!
Our popular TAIL SPIN effect is now better than ever! Printed in beautiful colors on a heavy gloss board, TAIL SPIN will make your head spin!
This hilarious prop is guaranteed to make kids snort and bray! They won’t be able to keep their laughter “burro”-ed!
You show a picture of the cutest little ol’ donkey you ever saw. But the poor fellow is missing his tail. Slide the donkey picture (a very visible 9.5 x 12 inches) into an envelope with a large window. A child pretends to throw the tail, and when you pull out the donkey, the tail is stuck to his nose. His eyes are crossed and his ears bent back in surprise! Kids howl! It’s not the helper’s fault — you know how stubborn donkeys are!
Put it back in, try again, and this time when you pull it out, the tail is completely gone. You look all around for it, and suddenly the kids scream their lungs out because the tail is hanging out of the back of your pants! Trust me on this, the children will weep with joy!
This bit of tomfoolery can be used in a variety of settings. It’s perfect for birthday parties, of course, but it works great in day care shows, library programs, and school assemblies. Based on an idea by Edwin Hooper with a twist by Selina Frederick. Using Selina’s wonderful artwork, TAIL SPIN is printed in full color on heavy boards with a high-gloss finish. You’re bound to get a KICK out of this one!
“I love Tail Spin! Children in my library audiences all summer long were laughing and giggling uncontrollably at every performance of that cute little donkey and his tail. By their vote it’s a 10!!!!!!!”
(School show professional and producer of KIDabra)
“I use a blindfold for the child while performing Tail Spin to add even more comedy. The blindfold can have funny eyes, long lashes or any other bit of silliness.”
