How can you fit a magical collection of kids' favorite animals in your pocket?
Imagine a magical piece of folding paper that gets really, really big ... and it's filled with colorful cartoon images of kids' favorite animals. Now imagine those images morphing into each other each time you unfold the paper. That's why kids love Animal Mistake. And that's why they'll call you out on each mistake you make, and laugh out loud at the big, visual finale. Check out the video!
"Do dreams come true?" You ask your audience as you show a prediction envelope.
Then a child selects a picture of an animal from a little coloring book. You open the envelope and proudly show your (incorrect) prediction--an illustration of a rabbit. The kids tell you you're wrong--and that's when the magical morphing of the animals begins--right before their eyes.
Each time you unfold the paper, it gets bigger as the illustration magically changes. Your audience will see the rabbit become a small dog, which will elongate into a dachshund, which will transform into a seal and then a chicken and finally a stork.
Every time you insist that your animal prediction is right... and each time the kids will tell you that you've made an Animal Mistake as they shout, "It's supposed to be an elephant!"
You make a joke about storks. "Did you know, a long time ago, people thought they actually delivered babies?" You unfold the last part of the giant paper and show the stork is actually carrying a little elephant!
Luis Zavaleta and Professor Otto from Peru based this prop and routine on Dick Stoner's "Grave Mistake." Kids love watching the paper grow as it unfolds and constantly reveals a new animal!
