The three Anderson children – 13-year-old Tyler, 11-year-old Jada and four-year-old Logan – showed off what they can do with a whip, impressing the crowds with their quick, whip cracking skills. 

Logan – the youngest – first picked up the whip at just 10 months old, something mother Alicia wasn’t too keen on.

“We had no intention to let him whip crack so young but he was unstoppable,” she said.

“He has a mind of his own and he saw his brother and sister whip cracking and he was probably thinking, why can’t I do it?

“He doesn’t have the strength to hurt himself from the whip.

“I don’t think Logan understands all this attention he’s getting for his whip cracking.” 

A smaller and softer whip was made for Logan, made out of old shoe laces. 

The Aussie Whip Crack’n Kids have starred at shows and performances all over Australia, going as far as Tasmania.

Recently, the Mudgee-based children performed as this year’s Royal Bathurst Show.
