Frequently Asked Questions

At Freddie’s Magic there’s no smoke and mirrors hiding how difficult a trick is!

Every product has an age recommendation and difficulty rating at the top of it’s description. The difficulty categories are (in order):

  1. Extremely Easy
  2. Easy
  3. Needs a Little Practice
  4. Difficult
  5. Challenging

All our products are categorised by age recommendation and difficulty in our shop making it easy for you to work out which magic trick is best for you.

Every trick comes with a FREE video tutorial, taught by Freddie himself in clear, straightforward English, and many videos include easy routines – so you can amaze your friends and family within minutes of watching it! There are even advanced routines and top tips for those who really want to push their magical skills to the next level! 

Currently our instructional videos are only available in English, but our written instructions are available in English and Italian as they are sourced by Vincenzo di Fatta – an Italian company with an excellent reputation and over 34 years experience as one of the world’s leading suppliers of quality magic tricks!

Have you ever bought a magic set with 100’s of tricks inside, been really excited to get started, and then found that most of the tricks in the set aren’t very good and aren’t explained very well?

At Freddie’s Magic we avoid this at all costs. We strongly value quality over quantity, and only sell tricks that have been tried and tested ourselves. We provide fewer items, that are built to last, with in-depth video tutorials that encourage our customers to get the most out of our products.

All of our products have been safety tested, in-person with real-life customers and are appropriate for anyone over 3 years old. If any of our products contain small parts they are not recommended for children under 7 years old, and this information is made available on the ‘additional information’ section of each specific product page.

We’re not going to lie to you, at the moment many of our products contain plastic. We’re really keen to work against this as we want to help protect our fishy friends in the sea, and frankly we don’t believe there is an excuse to not be working towards more eco-friendly alternatives in the 21st Century!

At the moment we focus on encouraging our customers to get the most out of our products by fostering a passion for magic in our instructional videos that encourages people to use them again and again. However, as our business grows we are allocating a percentage of every single sale towards purchasing our own 3D printer, so we can eventually sell our own home-made products, made from eco-friendly and biodegradable materials (don’t worry we won’t forget about providing top-notch quality magic tricks!). 

As our company grows we will be introducing a feature allowing customers to round up the pennies of their purchase to donate to our upcoming charity ‘Wizards on the Wards’ (a bit like how McDonald’s offer you the option to round up your purchase to donate to good causes on their self-checkout systems).

‘Wizards on the Wards’ is an initiative that works to get magicians into hospitals. Once enough money has been raised, a magician goes to a hospital, entertains patients, and provides a free magic trick and workshop to those who would like to learn. This initiative provides some much needed relief for people in vulnerable situations who are stuck inside all day, and helps inspire confidence to those who are facing very difficult times.

Our charity is only in it’s very early stages and operations are currently on hold due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, but if you would like to make a donation to ‘Wizards on the Wards’ please email info@freddiesmagic.com for more information

What isn’t so great about magic?!

Magic tricks (along with our videos) inspire confidence, communication and presentation skills, and are a fantastic way to learn how to engage with people effectively. Muhammed Ali, Stephen Fry, and Chris Pratt all dabble(d) in magic tricks – developing their confidence, charisma and ability in ways that led them onto very successful careers!

Furthermore, charities such as the fantastic Breathe organisation focus on using arts and magic (amongst many other things) to improve clinical outcomes for patients. Helping develop motor skills, confidence, or even just a bit of light relief for those who need it most.

Also, in these modern times where we find ourselves spending increasing amounts of time inside what better hobby is there to indulge in than learning how to perform miracles! You could end lockdown having watched the entirety of Netflix, or you could be ready for that next party with a deck of cards and the ability to blow your friend’s minds!

How exciting, we love a challenge! Just pop us an email at info@freddiesmagic.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP
