Why are Svensons the best...
Why choose a Svensons Professional Flea Circus?
In the past Flea Circuses were made pretty crudely with any materials that happened to be at hand. This made them rather awkward to use and notoriously temperamental!
So with this in mind we decided to redesign the Flea Circus and eliminate its failings. Our aim was simple; to create a traditional style Circus that was easy to use, realistic, consistent and great value.
In short we wanted to make the best!
We use reliable mechanical controls rather than "electronic", and we only use the best quality materials.
Our many unique designs and improvements include the following in our Flea Circuses...
- Set-up and breakdown is VERY easy and can be done in less than 2 minutes. Other than loading the cannon with a cap and putting a little water in the pool no "pre-show set-up" is needed!
- The Svenson’s High Wire and High Dive poles lock into position automatically when raised from the folded down position. Simply lift the poles into position and its unique internal workings means they are ready to use right away!
- To unlock they are simply pushed back down again. There’s no messy catches or clips to fiddle with!
- Our High Wire act is "geared". This allows a very smooth one-handed operation.
- All our controls are designed for "one-handed" use.
- All of our controls are hidden from view. The control panel door at the back can be closed with a flick of a finger! This means no nosey audience member will catch you out! It also opens and closes without the use of fiddly locks or catches!
- All acts are controlled by knobs that turn or knobs that you push or pull. The controls are straightforward and so easy to use you will master them in 5 minutes! Nor are they "handed", so it’s just as easy to use if you are left-handed or right-handed!
- The falling target can be angled to point in any direction so, if you want to have audience participation, they can aim and fire from any point! No resetting of the falling target is required either; simply just stand it back up and it resets itself!
- Our High Dive pool is angled to splash towards the audience. This virtually eliminates any clean up and greatly adds to the fun!!
- Flea Circus cannons are notoriously unreliable. Due to the materials used they don’t last long and can be awkward to load. NOT OURS! Our unique robust cannons are completely made from scratch by us with an all steel barrel and firing mechanism. Loading a "Svenson’s" cannon is very easy, and once loaded it remains "cocked" and ready to fire by simply pressing a lever.
- Its ease of use allows members of the audience to fire the cannon with no hiccups. When used with the caps we recommend you know it will fire time after time!
- Our Trapeze is counterbalanced for a smooth operation.
- We include ALL the famous tricks as standard! Additionally we have added our very own unique acts like the football kick and up-hill barrel roll! Some of the tricks even use fake fleas which we supply. They are small enough to fool but big enough to pick with tweezers (also supplied) making your show look 100% convincing and VERY realistic!
- We also supply full instructions and a CD with music, sound effects and masters for posters and tickets.
