How Red Got Her Name
A Magical Fairy Tale Story
A cute and clever story about Emma, who traveled to see her Grandmother on the other side of the woods. Her mother made her a white cloak, but she couldn’t be seen in the snowy Winter forest.

She changed it to an orange cloak, but that could not be seen in Fall, so she magically changed it into a bright Red Riding Hood, and that’s how Emma got her nickname.

Library Die Box
License & DIY Kit for a Beautiful Prop
Blow your library and school audiences away with this beautiful prop and wonderful routine. It's the Die Box taken to a whole new kidshow level. You display a Carnegie-style library building with brick work, marble columns and golden brass sign. Open the doors and inside is a large block of book characters nestled in among well-stocked library shelves. You remove the block and show the children that is is adorned with pictures of their favorite characters from literature. Yoy place the character block into a House - just like kids take home their library books. Then you return the block to the library (just as the kids return their books). Magically the block vanishes from the library and in its place are empty bookshelves. Tip the building back and forth as you close one set of doors and open another - the library seems empty. But wait! The kids think you are letting the block slide back and forth. Finally you throw open both front doors and the two parts of the roof. The characters are gone - vanished completely. You reach into the House and produce the block of book characters to return it to the library.
This wonderful prop and routine is easy to make following Jim's careful illustrated instruction book. Best of all, ALL OF THE ARTWORK YOU NEED is included on the disc. Plans and art include the Library, the Block, the Shell, the House and an extra Apartment Building. Cut a few pieces of wood and glue them together - print the artwork and glue it to the wood. Voila! You have made your very own Library Die Box. OR, you can take the easier route and simply modify your own commercial Die Box with Jim's art.
Based on an idea by Tommy Johns and masterfully created by Jim Kleefeld, the Library Die Box Kit is a project you will love to make and really enjoy using in any show for schools or libraries. Jim even includes his complete scripted routine. You get a CD with a full-color 28-page instruction manual, over 150 art files that allow you to make a Library Die Box, House and Apartment in any of three different sizes, and the rights to make one unit for your own use. Manufacturing Rights Reserved by Jim Kleefeld. SPECIAL BONUS: Also included is a 7-minute audio file of Tommy Johns performing and explaining his marvelous routine for the Library Die Box. Library Die Box - Project Plans, Artwork & License to Create - $100
More Fun With Two Ropes Than You Can Imagine
Rope Relay is a contest between the magician and a volunteer from the audience. The race is simple. Your helper freely chooses either the red or blue set of rope and baton. Both you and the helper insert your ropes into the hard plastic batons and let go. Magically the boy's rope drops straight through to the floor and the magician's gets stuck in the baton every time. Switch ropes - yours still gets stuck. Switch batons - yours still gets stuck. The kid is always the winner and the magician gets frustrated by losing every time. Kids and adults roar with laughter as each race gets more befuddling. Jim has used Rope Relay in hundreds of shows and it has proven to be one of the highlights of each show. You won't believe how much fun this is until you try it with real, live kids. You are always in control of whose rope goes and whose rope stays. Let yours fall through or get stuck inside any time you want. Super easy to do, very baffling to the audience. You will never see parents laugh so hard as when the kids in the audience all start yelling out "That's the feet!" at the same time. Typically warm and wonderful Kleefeld humor, and everyone comes out a winner.
Of course between jump-rope exercise and the Olympics, this routine is a natural for library shows on Sports and Fitness. You get red and blue colored ropes, red and blue hard plastic batons, red and blue storage/carry cases, plus the special gimmick that makes it all work, and of course, Jim's masterful script. Rope Relay - $45
