Hydraulic Pegasus Cinderella coach. DSH Pantomime effect for hire.

Cinderella Coaches

We have three different Cinderella coaches available for hire. The Pegasus (pictured left) is an amazing automated hydraulic coach. The wings on the Pegasus horse begin to flap, then as the coach starts to move forwards the horse nods and moves its legs and the coach carries Cinderella forwards and upwards, giving the impression that the coach has taken off turning and lifting simultaneously towards the audience, giving the impression it is flying through the air. it certainly has the ‘wow’ factor.

Our trucked coach, shown in the second and third images, is beautifully ornate. There is room for a footman and coachman as well as Cinderella on the coach. The horse’s legs move with the motion of the truck.

Our pony drawn coach is designed to be drawn by two or four small ponies. It is built on a real coach chassis and is guaranteed to get the audiences oohing and aahing. This item is offered for sale as well as for hire.

DSH props and effects Dame Trott's comedy Ice-cream van truck. slapstick scene from Jack and the Beanstalk.

Ice Cream Van

This Ice-cream van truck provides a unique slosh scene.

Seen here in our workshop, this truck is used by Dame Trott to try to make some money. In the process it has engine trouble with plenty of opportunity for a slapstick routine with the potential for goo to be squirted from the engine and/or the exhaust before the whole van fills up with foam (ice-cream) from two “uncontrollable” ice-cream (foam) machines. The indicators and head lights can be operated from inside the van.

The van sits on an 8’ x 4’ truck base and stands approximately 3m tall. Although this has been designed with Dame Trott from Jack and the Beanstalk in mind, it would be possible to change the name plate on the side if necessary.

See sets: Jack and the Beanstalk Set 1, Jack and the Beanstalk Set 2, Jack and the Beanstalk Set 3.
