John Breeds' Wacky Washing Machine
Many busy childrenís entertainers bypassed the wonderful Washing Machine trick because some washing machines were very heavy; some were top loading; with some you couldnít let the children remove the socks; some were too large. But John Breedsí Wacky Washing Machine has solved all these problems. The prop weighs only 1.5 kilos (about 2 lb), and the approx. dimensions are height 12" (30cm); width 9" (23cm); and depth 5" 13cm).
Washing socks has never been so hilarious with Johnís new design. Itís a comedy of errors where the pair of socks change size, become spotted, are full of holes and finally return to normal. A major feature is that the children themselves can load and remove the socks from the drum. Added to this, there is a bank of flashing lights and a noisy buzzer. However, this simple description gives no inkling of the FUN that the prop generates. Wacky Washing Machine is a feature effect in any show and easily the best participation trick - ever! There are laughs galore throughout the routine! See for yourself…
