Library Die Box

 

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. Youy 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.
