Who isn't a sucker for a nice bouquet of flowers appearing from nowhere? :-)

By Blogger shimmala, at 9/03/2007 7:55 PM  

I like the simplicity of just having things appear out of nowhere - especially for kids. The hat that has the scarves just apperaing is cool and my little guy would love it!

Here's my link. My favorite is the My First Magic Hat. :)

I have two budding magicians in my house. They love putting on magic shows. My favorite tricks are when they make things disappear or they appear to read my mind;)

Neat contest!

Sorry, I forgot to include the link where I posted on my blog.

By Blogger Melissa Markham, at 9/04/2007 4:27 AM  

The mind reading tricks are always killer.

By Blogger Brooke, at 9/04/2007 5:58 AM  

With my son Daniel just turning One in October, this would make the birthday party, one of my other three boys could perform a magic act, I wonder if they could perform my favorite trick make a rabbit come out of a hat! I really do hope I win this :.)

I like the tricks with water... like how do they pour milk into a newspaper tube and it just disappears???

By Blogger Patty, at 9/04/2007 6:17 AM  

the card tricks!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9/04/2007 6:18 AM  

I love a good card trick!! Also the quarter in the soda can trick... I can do that one lol


By the way Cadaco's Spectacular Magic Vest is very cool!!


Again thanks for another great giveaway!

I can't do any trick, so they are all pretty coo; to me!

oh, sorry, "cool". you are on my sites to visit. is this work as links to your blog?

By Blogger whitney, at 9/04/2007 7:38 AM  

Boy oh boy, my 7 year old is SO into majic - he would be thrilled to have this!

By Blogger Micaela, at 9/04/2007 8:20 AM  

My favorite nagic trick is when I hide a coin in my hand and make it appear behind my daughter's ear! she loves it, and not to mention when I whip up a great meal in under 20 minutes that my husband and child actually LIKE!

That magic trick kit looks amazing and my kids would have a blast. I love the card tricks where the magician guesses the card that is secret to the audience only.

By Blogger Corey, at 9/04/2007 9:47 AM  

I love floating people tricks. Your link is on my home page.

sawing someone in half

By Anonymous Pat, at 9/04/2007 6:16 PM  

I think I could pull off the magic vest.

By Blogger T'aowyn, at 9/04/2007 7:31 PM  

That is so cute! Magic is always fun. I'm sure my kids would like it to step up a notch in the magic trick department. My tricks are old.

By Blogger Jules, at 9/05/2007 6:59 AM  

It would be really fun to learn some magic tricks!

By Blogger Alexia, at 9/05/2007 7:35 AM  

I'm still a sucker for people who vanish from boxes "into thin air" and scratch my head wondering how they do it.

Thanks for the great contest.

By Blogger debra, at 9/05/2007 8:34 AM  

I love any trick involving objects that appear to move on their own.. it freaks me out!!

By Blogger Angela, at 9/05/2007 9:24 AM  

magic is just cool...period. i think this is such a great idea for kids.

murandabarker (at) gmail (dot) com

By Blogger Muranda, at 9/05/2007 9:24 AM  

My favorite magic trick is when they cut the person in half and separate the boxes...how do they do that?

By Blogger Sarah, at 9/05/2007 9:39 AM  

I am just a bit on the cheesy side. I love all the simple classic magic tricks like the coin behind the ear, rabbit from the hat and the card tricks.

By Blogger Antonina, at 9/05/2007 10:37 AM  

Scotch and soda. It's an old one.

By Blogger anavarre1331, at 9/06/2007 9:08 AM  

i like any trick that amazes my 5 year old, which is about any. i just love to see the amazement in his face.

By Blogger Dansie Family, at 9/06/2007 10:30 AM  

This is lame, but I want to be ckear that this is my favorite magic trick when performed for a child... I love when grandpas pull quarters from out behind kids ears. It's a timeless trick and always cute!

katewestrich at gmail dot come

By Blogger Kate, at 9/07/2007 6:56 AM  

Fav. magic trick is the disappearing coins. My kids love how they disappear and reappear in different places.

There is something so simple, sweet, and nostalgic about a bunny rabbit being plucked from a hat. To look at children's faces when this is performed is simply magical.

thisislindsayrae@gmail.com

By Blogger Lindsay, at 9/09/2007 6:20 AM  

Yeah, the sawing-people-in-half thing still gets me. How DO they do it??

jg at jennaglatzer.com

By Blogger Jenna Glatzer, at 9/11/2007 12:22 AM  

My favorite magic trick? Hands-down, it's any close-up, sleight-of-hand--especially when cards or coins are involved.

Big stage illusions may be dramatic, but they aren't difficult to achieve if you have the right (expensive) equipment.

Close-up magic, on the other hand, is all about skill.

By Anonymous Marsha, at 9/11/2007 12:05 PM  

My 4 year old daughter would love this. I am always a sucker for biting a quarter and then spitting it back to make it whole again trick.

By Blogger Lorin&Heather, at 9/12/2007 5:19 PM  

My favorite is when they cut items in pieces and then they are whole again.

Oh! The Pop Up Magic Top Hat is the perfect thing for a silly 4yo. And the fact that it folds flat is perfect for the storage-challenged mama.

By Blogger VenturaMom from, at 9/13/2007 9:40 AM  

cool stuff!

By Anonymous nicolew, at 9/13/2007 1:07 PM  

When I was little, my grandfather worked at Brown's Hotel in the Catskills. I always loved Magic Week--and any trick involving animals (as long as they are well taken care of)!

Captain Dad does little coin and card tricks and would love this set for him and Baby Diva.

I linked up to your contest here.

I think my favorite trick was the one I saw a few months ago. I sat down on a crowded commuter train, on my way home, and groaned. The guy next to me pulled out his wallet and it burst into flames! It turned out that he was a magician, heading home from a gig. He entertained me all the way home.

By Blogger Magpie, at 9/14/2007 10:56 AM  

My kids love the card tricks!

By Blogger The Young's, at 9/15/2007 7:11 AM  

My favorite is My First Magic Hat because I won one of those (could it be the very same one?!) when I was in fifth grade. I still remember my disbelief when they came into my classroom and said my name. What glee!!!!

Yup, that's my fave.
