4.0 out of 5 stars Fun 1 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
My son (10) has had fun with these. Some are quite 'classic' optical illusions, others are more original. A few are a bit tame but with 50 to choose from there's plenty of entertainment value here.

4.0 out of 5 stars 50 Optical Illusions 28 Jun 2011
By Suti
A fun selection of cards to entertain. I look at five or ten every so often so that I can take in the detail. Some are quick and simple, others truly amaze. There is a special "revealer card" to help show how the design fools the eyes and just to convince you that what you think you see is not necessarily true. The reverse of each card explains the illusion in detail - even then you may not be convinced. A good buy at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource. 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought these as part of a topic on optical illusions and popular art for 10/11 yr olds. They absolutely loved the cards and were amazed by how the human eye/brain can be tricked into seeing things that were not there. It contains a very wide selection from classic illusions like the faces/vase to impossible drawings and colour wheels that seem to rotate. Exceptional value for the amount of pleasure and information provided. Would make a great present for anyone of any age who likes to be entertained and amazed.

Getting a bit fed up with having to buy items like this as a £10+ add-on, or pay exuberant postage costs. Read more

These separate cards, a really good idea, better than a book, were a great hit with 12 year old James - put him off opening his other presents - and all the family.
