Miss A loves to be the centre of attention, so when she chose to review Gee Whizz Magic Tricks this month from Drumond Park, she was in her element holding centre stage as she performed her tricks to us.
Gee Whizz is designed for younger children, age 5 years and up to introduce them to magic tricks. The set contains 15 different tricks that children will be able to complete themselves.
On this occasion, I decided that instead of interacting and playing alongside Miss A, I would leave her to read the instruction booklet and wait to be shown the tricks once she had learned them. I was very impressed with how she read over the instructions which are clear and full of pictures to assist, before mastering the trick and then showing me.
I’m not quite sure why Miss A found it so funny to make something disappear, but her favourite trick by far has been the disappearing parrot where she took great delight in showing me how the trick was done when I made the correct surprising gasps as she showed me her trick.
Obviously afterwards I did have a go at some of the tricks myself. I was very impressed with how the pieces were laid out in the box, everything flowed together very well, and it made it easier to find what you needed when reading the instruction book. There aren’t too many small pieces to lose or break, and everything is good quality. With clumsy fingers in younger children, you may expect some of the cardboard pieces to tear or rip easily, but even after repeating the same trick over and over, the pieces still look as new which is great.
Gee Whizz is a great idea as a gift for children, and whilst the box is aimed at children ages 5 and over, I still think that older children being introduced to magic tricks, or just starting to take an interest in them would get a lot out of this set. Gee Whizz is priced at £19.99.
