The Hare and Bird Superposition is a take on the classic Hippity Hop Rabbits. Instead of a white rabbit with black outlines, and a black rabbit with white outlines, which look horrible, it’s been changed to a cute hare and bird. This is not just better, but it also allows for the use of the classic “duck/rabbit” illusion. Only this time, it’s a bird and hare illusion. The big finale of Hippity Hop Rabbits also rewarded you with different color rabbits, which makes little sense. With the Hare and Bird Superposition, the finale is totally different animals. This time it’s a goat and a dog, and all of these figures all have the same cutout profile.
|“Superposition” is simply the cleverest and most engaging revolution of the classic ‘Hippity Hop Rabbits’ illusion on the market and perhaps ever invented. It has earned a permanent place in the beginning of every children’s show we perform at Main Street Magic and Fun Company, and as the resident house magician, I cannot imagine ever dropping it from our performance set. The props are exceptionally well-made, and the complementary animal components lock securely into place, avoiding any miscues in handling. From transfiguration to transposition to transformation, young spectators follow, without confusion, three different stages of irony and surprise. The final effect is the very definition of magical shock and awe! Children’s mouths fall off their faces with the final transformation, and parents sitting behind them in our ‘Magic Attic’ theater break into spontaneous applause.
This review has been unsolicited but most deserved. Congratulations, Randi Rain! And thanks!
