The 10 illusions and magic tricks in this set are classics—any child who has seen a magician perform will likely recognize at least one or two, and be thrilled by the chance to master them at home. The kid-friendly instructions bring these famous tricks within reach, giving children all the tools they need to succeed. The variety and professional quality of the pieces make it all the more exciting to prepare magic shows, too, as children master each trick and add to their repertoire. The act of preparing and performing their magic act is great for building confidence and poise, as well as exercising creativity and dramatic flair as they take the stage to perform.
Because every magic show gets better with practice, this high-quality set is built to stand up to countless “rehearsals.” Sturdy wooden pieces, thick woven rope, and shatter-proof mirrors allow kids to practice, play, and learn with confidence. The classic nature of the tricks also means they won’t seem stale or babyish as kids grow—they’re sure to be loved for years and even beyond. Tricks like Vanishing Coin, Secret Silks, and The Great Escape are a terrific foundation for later magic study, too: the same tricks and themes recur throughout many magic acts. Children will get a kick out of seeing the very same acts performed by “real” magicians at professional magic shows!
