John Breeds' Wacky Washing Machine
Many busy children’s entertainers bypassed the wonderful Washing Machine trick because some washing machines were very heavy; some were top loading; with some you couldn’t let the children remove the socks; some were too large. But John Breeds’ 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 John’s new design. It’s 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…

No party is complete without the brilliant Wacky Washing Machine. It acts as the catalyst for so much laughter, slapstick, audience interaction and fun that I never do a show without it. That's why when John agreed to let me play with it on my YouTube channel I knew it would be a hit!

There are many different versions of the comedy washing machine. John Breeds’ “Wacky Washing Machine” is by far the best on the market. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
