Thames & Kosmos Magic Gold Edition Magic Set. Master the magical arts! With this extensive collection of magic props from Thames & Kosmos, you can easily learn, practice, and perform 150 incredible magic tricks and illusions to astonish spectators. In tricks using cups and balls, balls disappear, appear, and change places inside moving cups. Cotton balls transport themselves from hand to pocket and from hand to hand. In tricks with a tube, confetti and snow appear out of nowhere and dice and knots appear and disappear. A six-sided die baffles the mind and fools the eye. Little rabbit shapes appear, disappear, multiply, and hop around. Metal rings move around, link up, and unlink again Seemingly simple balls arent so simple: They appear, disappear, multiply, balance, change places, change colors, and altogether bewilder your audience. A magic wand loses its rigidity, floats in the air, and lets a rope pass right through it. Knots in ropes appear and disappear, a rope gets cut but stays intact, and a rope is pulled out of your mouth! Learn a wide variety of rope and plastic ring illusions. Coins appear in a dinner roll. Coins cry tears of joy. Cola turns into coins! Many tricks use food and household objects: Water levitates, citrus fruits transform, and toothpicks mystify. Tricks with sugar and salt stupefy the audience. Magically guess birthdays, numbers, and colors. Levitate yourself and objects. Bend and restore metal. Practice dozens of tricks with playing cards: guessing, transforming, locating, and making cards vanish. Finally, amaze the audience with tricks that make a thimble appear, disappear, jump around, and pass through objects. A 96-page instruction manual with color photographs illustrates how the tricks are performed. Video tutorials for the tricks are available online. For one magician, ages 8 and up, and many audience members.
