Each trick is accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions and helpful, step-by-step illustrations, and there are valuable general tips on performing. Peter also tells the stories of the great magicians of the past who created all the tricks in the kit.In the box there's a traditional magician's wand, pack of cards, three dice and three great tricks: the magic coin box, the ball and vase and the floating match card. Any other props budding performers might need - from pens, pencils, keys, handkerchiefs, lengths of rope, glue, beads and coins to ribbons, strips of material, rubber bands, pieces of card, beads, glass tumblers and envelopes - can easily be found around the house or simply made.This kit will take children on a journey of excitement, wonderment and self-development as they fool and entertain friends and family and gain confidence from performing their own magic shows.
