I got this kit about 2 years ago and I have really gotten my moneys Worth from it. I have used Some of these Props in my stage show and I always get great reactions.
I have shown these effects to several people out when I would perform for them. I dont think there is a single effect in this kit that I haven't used.
If your looking for a kit to buy your child who wants a magic kit then I highly suggest this kit. It has a lot of the classics in magic and will really get some good mileage out of these effects.
