What happens when a giant crayon marries the Breakaway Wand? In 1981, Danny Orleans found out. He invented the "Breakaway Crayon." It's been one of the best sight gags in his children's show ever since. Although a smaller, inferior model was "manufactured without permission" for a number of years, Danny finally shared his version with family entertainers all over the world.
You show the oversize, 14" long, yellow wooden crayon to the children. That's when you'll get your first big reaction. The sheer size of it makes an impact. Then, when you hand it off to a child and it falls apart in his hands you'll get an even bigger laugh. Finally, you explain how to "fix" the pieces, only to have it fall apart yet again, in your hands, creating yet one more very funny moment. See it happen in Danny's live show when you click on the video at the top of this page.
If you have a parade of break-away props in your show, or perform a Coloring Book Routine, this will be a welcome addition and a perfect fit to enhance your presentations for children and family audiences.The crayons are "Made in the USA" by Lupe Nielsen of Nielsen Magic. Each is 14" long, made of solid poplar, two coats of glossy yellow paint, a paper wrapper. Handling tips and instructions are included. Shipped shrink-wrapped, in a protective tube, worldwide.
Danny's red and purple crayons were a total sell out at FISM2015 and again two months later at Magic Weekend in Sweden. Now he's added a new color which really "pops." Add a classic comedy bit to your show with a decidedly different prop. Watch your audience break out into a burst of laughter when you perform Danny Orleans' Yellow Breakaway Crayon!
