I'm no master, not even a paid performer, but I know a good handful of tricks, I'm learning some cardistry, and my wife and family get a kick out of my tricks. My friends are aways amazed. I was hoping that with those involved in this kit, I would've gotten something more than a kids kit. With the exception of the Thumb. Which is too big. I've got small hands, and the thumb is made for an average full grown male. Kids are gonna struggle with it, most females any age- good luck, and those of us fellas with small hands... well- same.
I was hoping that although some basic beginner tricks (that are mentioned upfront) there might be a few intermediate, and maybe an advanced or two. But, my 7 year old, autistic niece, figured out what was happening through over half of the tricks. And this was the first time I'd ever shown her any magic. Ever. So... yeah... I'm disappointed.
Someone else also mentioned the "invisible" thread. Fishing line would work better than this black thread! Seriously, at least it's clear. This black thread is, well, BLACK- which is hardly invisible. Even with a black shirt- as the other reviewer mentioned. And I tried a black tee, and few different material button ups, AND a sweatshirt that has a gloss black print on it. Still it stands out. Now, I'm not even trying to rock that thread, but if I were, I couldn't. Misdirection can't help this problem.
Well, I'm gonna put this back together nice and neat, and gift it to my previously mentioned niece. Maybe she can improve on the tricks.
