Here is my kid show performed at the S. Tyneside convention in England. It's 20 min. I did the first half as a ventriloquist with a Toucan hand puppet, and the second half with the Hands-Free Animatronic Toucan & Drawing board. For the second half I used MagicTrax for the voices to demonstrate the technique to the magicians at the show.

I'll have to put you down for a gold medal on ability, Steve. I'm glad you make our puppets instead of compete with us as an entertainer! Singer, artist, piano player, ventriloquist...Wow!

Sensational! I especially LOVE the idea of passing on the hiccups. Hmmmm, non lethal communicable diseases... could be a good theme my next show.

I also liked the hiccups being passed on. The timing would be very difficult for something on tape, so I was extremely impressed! I find that yawns are contagious. If I yawn during a performance so does the audience!

Loved the transition from Bird Arm vent puppet to animatronic! Very smooth and natural...

I appreciate the kind words. It's not often I get to perform anymore with running this business so I love conventions where I can show off the new products in a show. Ax
