Making people laugh has been around since the beginning of man. Laughing has been found to be the best medicine - well that's what people say just go with it. Maybe soon hospitals will have laugh factories and comedians on call.
Comedians use many props to help them with their jokes. Animal props and novelty items have been used on stages and television shows for decades. Audiences and friends alike would laugh when an animal prop was thrown onto the stage.
The famous red-haired street performer that now is showcased in Las Vegas was famous for having a treasure box of gifts that would appear alongside his many jokes. He most definitely had animal props at one time in his overly-extended career.
While watching movies of the past, one is sure to come across an actor or actress that uses classic animal props.

Animal props can look fake or just as realistic as the animals they are trying to be. Little comedians can add a rubber mouse to their collection and watch mom jump on the table when they believe their house is being invaded by an army of rodents.
Some animal props can help make a Halloween or theme party stand out. Snake animal props are so fun and realistic they can quicken heartbeat just as much as the real thing.
