Intense day with three shows and a tug of war too!
Some days just seem to be very popular. June 15th was one of those in demand days. I try my best to fit everyone in but at the same time must never appear rushed. Now this is a job for a cool head with some pretty cool children's magic. Name -Tricky Toby. Job-special agent in magic!
Remember the name. Tricky. Toby. Arm the satnav. Check.
1. I arrived in Westbourne Grove for Chloe's seventh birthday in an ultra modern flat, decked out in white with her fashionable flowery friends. My pink hat is on order! Well we had some awesome funny fun with magic including the adults too. Mum was snapping away with her big Canon (please send me a few great pics if you can let me post them on my website). Then off to Maida Vale but really St. Johns Wood.
2. To a lovely little adventure playground where a few spots of rain brought a wild bunch of children in for an exciting magic show. Naina was celebrating her 5th and ma n pa were a little unsure how all this magic stuff would go down with a rowdy crowd. Rest assured all went fantastically magically well. Even the parents were glued to their chairs! After some Tricky Toby classic balloon animals and swords, their lunch was ready and a lovely spread was set out. Those extra large olives were greatly appreciated! Mmm!
Still enjoying those olives as I sped down Park Lane towards another magic show in Clapham. I pass my favourite monument in the world- Animals in War- beautiful, respectful.
Special question. HOW TO DECIDE IF A MAGICIAN IS ANY GOOD?
Answer. WHEN THE CHILDREN SIT ON THE BOUNCY CASTLE TO WATCH HIM!
3. Well this is different. A garden party in Battersea with bouncy castle and large group including all the neighbours! Chloe (yes same name, different girl) and brother Jay are seven. Simon the snake makes a return appearance after being out injured for a while as he hides a water pistol in his basket! Keep back! We also made some magic sweets from an ancient recipe (yuk!). All enjoyed the show.
About to go but then was invited to help with a huge tug of war! True story. The rope was about fifteen metres long and our team lost. Grrr! Some super barbecue chicken helped me get over it all. Thanks Helen & friends. A lovely time and not to be forgotten soon.
Not so secret mission accomplished. Water pistol put away. Secret magician Tricky Toby. Call 0796 007 4477. Yes 007!
