Stephen Dafoe Take it from someone who knows. My brother spent over 21 years as a magician. Maybe longer! He started his magical career when he was just 13. My brother became interested in magic after seeing Canadian magician Doug Henning perform on TV. That same year for Christmas, my brother received a magic kit very similar to the Thames & Kosmos MAGIC Hat. My brother comments that the magic kit he received allowed him to have some of his first authentic magic props.

Thames & Kosmosi is considered to be the #1 brands in the magic category. Their line of comprehensive magic sets help children develop presentation skills, confidence, hand-eye coordination, dexterity, and reading skills, while having fun.

Our Thoughts

When I showed her how to do it herself, she couldn’t wait to show her dad the new magic trick she learned.  Kids feel a great sense of accomplishment with “Thames & Kosmos MAGIC Hat.” It should be noted that we found the hat not to be 100% durable on the inside and kids will need to be careful during play.

Many of us have experienced the joy of watching a skilled magician at work, whether on television, at a children’s birthday party or on stage. For me, I grew up with magic.

Thames & Kosmos MAGIC Hat introduces kids to the world of public speaking and can also help improve speech. Performing in front of an audience improves critical thinking and public speaking skills. Perhaps that is why my brother has always been a much better public speaker than I am. Kids also get to explore their creative side by exploring the world of magic.

    I think Magic Kits are fun for kids because they can practice and feel they have accomplished something when they learn the tricks. It gives them confidence to perform in front of others too. I think my grandson would love this magic set as he has had some magic trick sets in the past. It was great to see the satisfaction and pride when he learned how to get the rings together and apart on the set he had. This set has such a nice variety of magic tricks in it.
