The magician says that he will give a pet to a child in the audience, and that the child will choose the pet he or she wants. Several jumbo cards are displayed showing photographs of different animals: a cat, a turtle, a hamster, a dove and a gold fish. All cards are put face down. The pack is given to the young assistant and he or she is instructed to discard cards one at a time without looking at the faces of the cards. When only one card remains, it is turned face up and it has a picture of a balloon figure of a dog. The magician makes a dog with a balloon, and gives it to the child.
A new, self-working trick for children.
