5 Ways Giant Things Can Enrich Your Life

Spur Creative Workshop News and PR from Spur Creative Workshop - Published 24 October 2016 We're not going to sugar-coat things here. We love giant props.
That's probably because we make them, which means we are more than a little biased. We love the different things you can do with them, the weird and quirky ways they can be used to complement any event or show. So we thought we'd publish five of the myriad ways that giant props can turn your life around and bring a smile to your face.

1. Giants can teach you about your history .

We're going to cheat a bit on this one, and include giant puppets too. But that's only because we are in awe of how all things gigantic can be used to create a sense of wonder or spectacle, especially if you're looking to put a show on that your audience is going to remember for a long time to come.

2. Giant puppets can (sometimes) tell your story much better than people can.

Again, we are technically dealing with puppetry here, but surely by now everyone is familiar with the Joey puppet, the horse who captured the imaginations of millions of people across the globe as part of the blockbuster theatre hit, War Horse.

Whilst the play is an adaptation of an already successful book as well as a Steven Spielberg film, it is arguably the use of giant props and puppets that has made the stage incarnation that much more memorable. The life-like nature of the props was a testament to the craftsmanship of the people who made them, and was surely a contributing factor to the fact that the play has long stayed in the memory of those involved.

3. Our brains go mad when faced with giant food.

Here at Spur, we have made a number of different types of giant food props for our clients and collaborators. We think there's something strangely compelling about giant food. Our inner child can't help be wowed when we see our favourite foods in giant form.

Take, for example, this video of kids being treated to their favourite food....

4. Giant objects can help with our creativity and learning
