Sammy Smith created this neat Christmas trick seven years ago, and I used it in 50 performances of Magic Animals for pre-schools, plus sold dozens of them on my UK Lecture Tour in October 2004. When you show Rudolph the BLUE-nosed reindeer, the kids tell you it’s supposed to be RED. So you put the big picture in the snow-covered barn (envelope), shout magic words, and take him out—but now his nose is WHITE and the kids point at YOU, because your nose is RED (see Skyler wearing the sponge ball nose supplied). Give it one last try, and the proper magic makes the sponge nose vanish and appear on the Rudolph picture. An easy-to-do, excellent kidshow trick!
