Watch Your Step “Unique Magic” children’s trick

This is a well-made and well-decorated wooden children’s trick. It consists of two decorated stands with some cut-out faces of children. The theme of the trick is to illustrate the awful injuries that can happen if children do not follow road safety rules. All ends well, but the instructions do suggest that: ‘the harrowing details of the accidents and of injuries sustained, should be avoided to prevent giving the Effect too gruesome an atmosphere!’ The trick includes instructions and suggested rhyming patter.
