Messy, messy, messy- and the kids just love it! The reaction you'll get will be INCREDIBLE- guaranteed!
Explain that you just received a new trick in the mail, but have not had time to practice it or even read the instructions. In fact, you trusted a friend to gather everything you need for the trick, and he gave you a box. Bring out the box, and open it, taking out a CD and a real banana. Put the CD in a player, and (following the spoken instructions that you are apparently hearing for the first time) proceed to perform the Vanishing Bandana trick. And that is where the hilarity begins!
The instructions tell you to take the bandana and fold it in half. Oops! Too late, you realize that you misread the instructions and you are holding a BANANA, not a bandana! But you bravely go on with the trick anyway, following the increasingly hilarious (and messy!) instructions.
Amazingly, at the end of the trick, you do indeed vanish the banana, and make it reappear, fully restored, in the previously empty box. Your audience will be rolling in the aisles!

By the way, we also include the original CD that came with this trick, if you have a CD player that you can take to your show and you prefer to perform the trick the original way, with the prerecorded voice instruction.
You supply the real banana.IF YOU WANT TO USE THE ORIGINAL CD, you also need a CD player (and an amplifier if you are performing for a large group).The voice on the CD is a female voice.The color and pattern of fabric for the vanishing cloth may vary.
Establishing the BandanaIf you think your audience (especially children) will not know what a BANDANA handkerchief is, use a bandana in a previous trick. For example, put a "Magic Bandana" on the head of a volunteer who helps you in an earlier trick. As you put the bandana on the volunteer's head, just make sure to call it a bandana. Later, when you do the Vanishing Bandana trick, they will make the connection and you will be sure that your audience gets the wordplay joke.
