A guaranteed kid pleaser!
This colorful comedy trick has a startling surprise climax - a great "sucker effect" in which the audience screams that they know "how it's done" just to discover they didn't know after all!
Two cute wooden cut-outs are shown. One is a white rabbit and the other a black rabbit. A cover, decorated with a white top hat, is placed over the white rabbit, and a cover with a black top hat is placed over the black rabbit. You declare that the rabbits will change places, and you turn each cover around to show its back side. When you lift the covers, the black top hat is now covering the white rabbit, and the white hat cover is covering the black rabbit. This is performed at least three times - and the audience will becomes more excited and vocal as the trick progresses. Yes, the rabbits change places, but the audience can't miss the way you keep turning the covers (and their contents) throughout the sequence. "You're turning it around!", they'll insist. At the finish, they will be literally shouting at you to "turn it around" so they can prove to you that the white rabbit has a black rabbit on its reverse side and the black rabbit has a white rabbit on its reverse side. That's exactly what you want to happen!
Imagine the laughter and surprise and applause when you finally turn the white rabbit around to reveal- the reverse side of the white rabbit is BLUE and the reverse side of the black rabbit is YELLOW! Gets them every time!
