We've all seen and surely performed the classic Crazy Compass (the arrow on the sign trick), but for the kids magician here is a great new jumbo version with a hilarious ending.
It looks like this. You show a large traffic sign, around 12-inches square, consisting of a big white arrow on a blue background on both sides. As you flip the sign around, the arrow always points in the direction, but then all goes to pot! Suddenly the arrow mysteriously starts to flip around, pointing this way and that, causing no end of confusion. Perfectly timed to your retelling of childhood journeys in which your dad would always get lost, while your mom never did because she always stopped and asked for directions.
The whole plot of the story goes from confusing to hilarious when the arrows point up, then down and all over the place. Just check out the video to see just how much kids like this trick. But what makes this version different is the big finish! At the end, the sign opens up to unfolds into the image of a uniformed police officer - with the face cut out for you to peek through at your audience! The best part is you now have a strong visual to deliver one of the following lines to bring the routine to a finish:
1. "Luckily a police officer appeared to point me in the right direction."
2. "When we were driving the wrong way on the one-way, a police officer appeared and gave my Dad a ticket!"
3. "Remember, if you ever get lost, you can always count on a police officer to help you find your way home."
Wrong Way is perfect if you're doing a safety show, and is a great way to positively introduce the importance of trusting a police officer in young children. It's especially important during these times where public opinion of law enforcement is being challenged.
