One good thing about blogging with three kids of different ages is that they all like different things, so when a toy arrives it’s easy to know who gets to test it out first. Izebella loves dolls and really young girly stuff whilst Jordanna enjoys crafts and making things and of course Ryan is the house scientist and also the magician. From being very young he loved magic sets and tricks and I have lost count of how many magic sets he has had over the years. He turns 13 next month and still very much likes a good old box of tricks. And this time the magic comes from the well known magician Jamie Raven.
Jamie Raven has been performing magic worldwide for over 13 years. He became more well know after appearing on Britain got Talent in 2015 where he even managed to amaze Simon Cowell.
Jamie has recently partnered up with Paul Lamond games to develop a new line of magic sets.
The box sets are quite small but contain enough items for a few tricks. Ryan seemed especially delighted by the Jamie Raven membership card which gives access to online features, links and also the instructions for the tricks are online too.
The sleight of hand set include tricks such as magnetic pen, jumping coins and the torn tissue trick where tissue, or paper is torn and then magically joins back together. He certainly needs a little more practice to make the tricks convincing but I guess practice makes perfect eventually!
These sets cost £13.95 each from Paul Lamond, tho slightly cheaper via Amazon and they are suitable for young magicians ages 8 and over.
They are quite small in comparison to other magic kits out there but the parts do seem good quality and not cheap tat that will easily break, so I would consider purchasing one of the other sets perhaps as a stocking filler for Christmas.
