Tail Spin by Samuel Patrick Smith
New from Sa-MUEL Patrick Smith!
Hot off the press, this hilarious new 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 10" x 14" 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. Printed in three colors with Selina's wonderful artwork, you're bound to get a KICK out of this one!
