Who is ‘The Royal Road to Card Magic’ for?
Children aged 10 and above (or much older!) who are into magic and cards will enjoy this book. This can be a difficult read for younger children, so please use your discretion and choose age-appropriate gifts for the recipient.
Is this item good for adults?
Absolutely! In fact, this is one of the few items we especially recommend for adults, as the tricks inside require a little more attention than our easy magic sets, and are perfect for entertaining more grown-up friends.
‘The Royal Road to Card Magic’ seems a little too advanced for me…
No problem! We also have easier card tricks and sets that are perfect for beginners, such as The Svengali Deck, which allows you to do over 10 amazing tricks with barely any practice. As well as Fifty Greatest Card Tricks, a brilliant set by Marvin’s Magic that introduces you to tricks with many different gimmicked card decks and packet tricks.
Do you recommend any other card tricks to go with this set?
