The Elusive Rabbits or Hippity-Hop Rabbits was invented by The Great Norman (Norman Hazeldene) c. 1947. And in fact Thomas Pohle has already released his tribute to Norman’s popular effect in the form of Rabbit Love. But although Where’s The Rabbit? looks like Norman’s classic it is quite different in both effect and method.
This is a real beauty that looks stunning and uses a method that is different from all other Hippity-Hop Rabbits before it. Thomas’ video is a little longer than it needs to be, but it does clearly show all the features. I think if you spent a fun hour with this you’d come up with a clean and snappy presentation entertaining the whole family in no time. And who can resist the smile of the cute little ducky? 🙂
Really clever innovative thinking from the talented German creator and craftsman Thomas Pohle.
Effect: The hats are empty and covered with the tubes. A duck appears instead of a rabbit. The duck can jump back and forth between the hats until a squirrel makes a surprise appearance … and finally the missing rabbit!
One other thing to consider, the little hats are actually solid! None of the figures are concealed inside the hats. Despite how freely the covers are shown empty, all the work is hidden inside.
