Bonus Tip: If you want an extra cute addition to this great little Giveaway. Check out "The Famous Pearl Poodle" described elsewhere on this site. When our owner Eddy Wade, use to perform his magic in restaurants, at weddings and at other intimate social functions he would make these little "Pearl Poodles" instead of the traditional balloon animals, as the balloons pop, cause distractions and other magicians, in his market, were already making them. After making a Pearl Poodle, (as a little souvenir for the spectator for helping with the magic and to remember his performance) he would exclaim to the spectator "You Need a  Bag  to take that Poodle home in" at which point, he would bring out "The Baby Bag" (which in itself is a great little Giveaway) He would then say "It's A Doggy Bag" for your poodle, be sure to give him a nice home and don't eat him tomorrow"...there are many other lines and sight gags in the book you can use as you develop your own style using this great give away item.

What made the extra Little Bag so extra special was that Eddy had rubber-stamped his Phone number on the side of the bag, thus giving the spectator a way to locate him in the future, for possible private parties and events. A True Marketing Gem! Of course today, you could put your website, social media address, logo, sponsor's name or other info. on the little bag.

Buy the Book, make up some Baby Bags, Learn to make the "Pearl Poodle" and you'll have a cute routine that will get you remembered where ever you perform it.
