    I bought this for my 6 year old son's birthday. He loves magic and has been getting the hang of card tricks. This set was something different. It's a lovely wooden set with some really easy and clever tricks. He thinks it's great. This was great value and we have already had many hours of fun from it. I would definitely recommend it.

    Our son has had so much fun with this toy and was able to amaze his friends at his birthday party. We took a chance and ordered it even though some reviews were a bit negative. We couldn't understand why, we think it's great and will probably order the deluxe set for Christmas.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite such high quality as expected 16 Dec 2011
    Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    A little disappointed with this set although luckily my six year old boy magician is happy with it.
    It is suitable for a six year old but not for children much older as the challenges are limited.

    1. The sword in the stone trick is super - simple and effective - only problem here is that the paint comes off the magic button so that even after the first day the button is no longer so well disguised.

    2. The cube in a box trick looks great with all the pretty pictures on the outside of the box but the fact that these are all different immediately exposes the trick. My small boys have not yet noticed but any reasonably observant child will quickly catch on. This trick requires that the sides of the box are symetrically similar so that the audience will not notice the manoeuvering of the lid.

    3. The magic chamber is a good trick, but I noticed on opening that the paper is already a bit torn and the wood has slightly rough edges. Poorer quality than hoped.

    4. The changing colour string box is fine but I would have liked to see slightly thicker & better quality string.

    Overall a bit disappointed but the price was reasonable. I would recommend for anyone with young children as a first magic trick set but bear in mind the above limitation.

    2.0 out of 5 stars waste of money 13 May 2014
    By MMary
    Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
    Having just purchased this for my son I am extremely disappointed. The sword in the stone trick doesn't work at all for a start. The stone which is supposed to hold in the sword making it impossible to pull out doesnt hold it at all. It slides straight out making it basically pointless as you cant use it at all. Maybe mines is faulty? The other tricks would only be suitable for very young children ie 2 or 3yrs as they are extremely obvious. I am usually a huge fan of Melissa and Doug products but have to say this magic set is a complete waste of money and you would be far better off buying one that actually works and has better tricks
