So much fun!

We've discovered a limited supply of vintage Fraidy Cat Rabbits!
Stored in a warehouse, these HARD TO FIND panels feature a really great rabbit cartoon face AND the very desirable (not made anymore) "back of the rabbit" ending!

This delightful comedy magic trick has a startling surprise climax - the audience screams that they know "how it's done" just to discover they didn't know after all!

The effect starts when you show your audience a small wooden doorway. You open the door, and there is a picture of a little black bunny. As you talk about the bunny, you casually close the door. You ask the audience to help you do a little magic- if they call out "BOO" loud enough, the bunny might change color.

Of course, you have some fun with this, getting the crowd to shout louder and louder. Finally (and very obviously), you turn the doorway around, and open it to show a white bunny in the doorway. The bunny has indeed changed color! Or has it?

It is obvious that all you have done is turn the doorway around and opened up the other side, showing the back of the plaque. And the crowd will let you know it! That's the point!! You perform this "magical switch" another time - and the audience will becomes more excited and more vocal as the trick progresses. Yes, the rabbit changed color, but the audience can't miss the way you keep just turning the dorrway around 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 black rabbit is on one side, and the white rabbit on the back. And that's exactly what you want to happen!

Because imagine the laughter and surprise and applause when you finally open the doorway, take the plaque out and show that there is a black rabbit FACE on one side and a black rabbit BACK on the other side! Fools them every time!

This effect has been a kids' show favorite for generations.
This version of Fraidy Cat Rabbit is quality made, of solid wood with bright painted design.
Please expect minor blemishes on the painted finish of this old store stock.
The blemishes will not affect the operation of this trick.
In fact, during normal use, you will put your own dings into the frame and panel yourself!
It will give you many years of performance!

Great reaction
If there is one trick I use every show, this is it. The reaction is so huge. I don't know what it is about the routine, but the kids just go wild. It is very well made as well. The colors are bright. The trick is easy to handle and is practically foolproof. Highly recommend.

Fraidy Cat Rabbit
Canadian, Bill Paul, invented Fraidy Cat Rabbit. It really has a great Suprise ending. Presentation is everything. Getting the audience involved is the key. Highly recommended. Great Prop! Yours truly, Magical Entertainer Vincent

My Favorite Kids Show Trick
Finally I found a shop that is carrying this great classic. I bought one many many years ago and used it doing school shows. I have not been able to find one to replace it after it got damaged in a fire. I think this new one is even better than the one I had plus you shipped it so quickly. I am very very happy. Thank you.
