Advice from a 5-Year-Old

Posted on August 23, 2013 by Chris Ballinger There have been 5 comment(s)

My daughter Bailey Joins us this week as we answer your questions and talk about the topic of performing for kids. It was a lot of fun (and a bit of a handful) to have a youngster's perspective on this topic.

My pick for the top 5 Kid Show Magic Tricks included Food to Go, 3-D Rabbit Set by Goshman, Soapy Suds, No Tear 2.0, and the Magic Coloring Book.

We also talked about the new trick by Zeki called The Present. This is an extremely fun routine where the joker rides his bicycle right off of the card and across the spread out deck until he fuses with the selected card. This leaves the spectator with an impossible object to take home as a "present."

Another great thing that we talked about was the Back to School sale. Check out all of the great bonus gifts up for grabs in the Back to School Section. Some of the bonuses include an autographed Redemption and a limited edition Magic Geek poster complete with signature and run number.

    I carry many card decks in a backpack (about 6). Many of them are gaff/gimmicked decks, and they are all different styles. Id love to have one mabey 2 styles only, (Red backed normal, and Black tiger) But I have a variety of different styles. My goal is to have a style that defines me, but what are your thoughts on this, am I overthinking it? Also, what is a good way to store/ carry cards on your person, that wont fill your pockets

    Hey Chris, I have a question. How do you deal with people who reveal the secret of a trick to a group of people you are performing for? And how can you prevent this in the first place
