That magic kit is my favorite.
I like it when animals appear, like birds and rabbits =)
Who isn't a sucker for a nice bouquet of flowers appearing from nowhere? :-)
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;)
Sorry, I forgot to include the link where I posted on my blog.
The mind reading tricks are always killer.
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???
the card tricks!
I love a good card trick!! Also the quarter in the soda can trick... I can do that one lol
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?
Boy oh boy, my 7 year old is SO into majic - he would be thrilled to have this!
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.
I love floating people tricks. Your link is on my home page.
I've always loved the one where the pretty lady gets cut in half.
I like pulling things out a hat.
sawing someone in half
I think I could pull off the magic vest.
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.
It would be really fun to learn some magic tricks!
I'm still a sucker for people who vanish from boxes "into thin air" and scratch my head wondering how they do it.
I love any trick involving objects that appear to move on their own.. it freaks me out!!
magic is just cool...period. i think this is such a great idea for kids.
My favorite magic trick is when they cut the person in half and separate the boxes...how do they do that?
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.
Scotch and soda. It's an old one.
Walking through walls is the bomb!
i like any trick that amazes my 5 year old, which is about any. i just love to see the amazement in his face.
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!
Fav. magic trick is the disappearing coins. My kids love how they disappear and reappear in different places.
I can't figure out how they saw people in half.
I love card tricks :)

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.
Yeah, the sawing-people-in-half thing still gets me. How DO they do it??
My favorite magic trick? Hands-down, it's any close-up, sleight-of-hand--especially when cards or coins are involved.
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.
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.
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)!
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.
My kids love the card tricks!
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!!!!
I love cardtricks!!!!
