I did the 12 days routine year before last, the props are simply just 5 standard toilet rolls on a rope cord, as long as the loop is big enough for who ever working with the prop to get it out into the audience! remember its gotta get back to the stage as well, Also a little tip clue the end of the rolls down so they don't open up in mid flight.
All other props just be logical in the ones you pick ie two football tops is easier than two kitchen sinks for instance.
