NOTE: The Kit originally debuted on Kickstarter (a crowd funding platform) and funded in only ONE day.  There was originally a LITE version of the kit offered but we found that almost EVERYONE wanted the full kit with all props included.  This is the option offered today.




You might be going something like this...

“This is fake. This can’t work. Look at these claims. I’ll never be able to do this.”

We know because we’ve been there. And we don’t fault you. But we can end that voice in your head. First, remember one thing. This is all we do, is teach this stuff. We’ve done it for two decades and have taught over a million magicians. Some of them are on TV. We’ve taught many of the magicians you see on America’s Got Talent.

This kit WILL BE everything you hoped for. We already know it, and so we’ll put our money on the line… instead of yours.

Have you seen those return it “within 10 days” policies? It’s the standard, but we never thought it was enough. You barely have enough time to get it out of the package!

So go ahead and take a full 90 days…learn a few of the best tricks. Pull out a few of the best tricks at the office, at Sunday dinner with the folks….make a few things disappear. Get acclaim. Get reactions.

If How to Be a Magician doesn’t do everything we say it will, send back the kit within 90 days and Ellusionist will refund every cent of your hard earned money (minus shipping).

Over 10,000 buyers (and rising every second) can’t be wrong. So that’s 100% of the risk taken out of it and there should be nothing stopping you.

Learn to captivate any crowd. Do what others can't do.

    This kit is a must have for any aspiring magician. I really like how it zeros in on the building blocks of magic as well. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone thinking about getting into magic. Nicely done!
  2. Summary

    I haven't received the kit yet but it doesn't matter anymore what I get in the kit. once you buy it you get directly five hours of well explained videos. obviously you can find all the tricks on YouTube BUT these amazing guys teach you how to be a magician, it is not only about the kit. They explain in precise details how to do a good act, what to say and when to say it. It's amazing for someone who have dreamed of being a magician. Let's consider the magic as a road, and these guys give you the car so you can roll in this road and it is up to you to choose the path and figure out what to do next. And if you admire Ramsey as I do then you should buy it, this guy is hilarious, most of the acts are explained by him.
  3. Summary

    I got this for christmas and thought it was a joke because I thought it would be cheaply made. My parents knew that I was interested in magic so they got this.

    Upon opening it up though I was surprised at the quality of all the items in the kit. Everything was well made and wasn't at all like any of those other kits where everything is made from cheap plastic and breaks if you look at it funny.

    The instructions on some of the effects could be better explained, but there wasn't a time where I couldn't figure out what was being said.

    All in all, I think they should make a second kit, I'd buy it in a heart beat

    This is possibly the best magic kit on the market!
    The instructions are absolutely amazing and they teach you some seriously awesome tricks that are ridiculously simple.
    I use the ACR routine and many of the other tricks with normal things to this day.
    Unfortunately, I am not 18 yet so I cannot perform the cigarette vanish that comes with the props, but I am looking forward to when I can (maybe get some people to stop smoking).

    My only complaint is the invisible thread is very much visible (which is not what they are going for).
    If you want good invisible thread, go for Loops by Yigal Mesika. Nobody can see them, the loops are pre-tied, they are decently strong, and they are like 10 USD.

    I saw some other people complaining that they already knew the tricks.
    These people seem to be missing the point of a magic kit.
    I got my kit when I was a beginner and it really helped me.

    All of the props in the kit are very good quality.
    The thumb tip is one of the most realistic I have ever seen (BTW there is a silk underneath the plastic shell that all of the props are in).
    It is actually the only thumb tip I have ever used in a performance since I got the kit.
    The sharpie is actually really cool. The reveal is so well hidden that you can get people to hold the sharpie in their hands the entire time and they will not notice anything is up until you show it to them.
    The sponge balls are nice (not really anything to say about them as they are only a little better than normal sponge balls).
    The coin is a nice little trick for younger audiences as a lot of older people already know about the folding coin trick.

    Overall, this is an awesome kit that I recommend all beginners to buy even though it is a little more expensive than most magic kits.

    Its like the whole Johnny Ace Palmer kit
  6. Summary

    I bought the download and I LOVE it! As someone just starting at intermediate level this is very helpful with the new effects and it fixed my Erdnase change.
  7. David

    Great props and loads of instructions. This kit has kept me busy for weeks!
  8. Summary

    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.
  9. Summary

    I think the kit is "ok". My main problem is the invisible thread. I recently just started getting into iet, and I love to perform with it, and I studied long and hard over thickness over it, the strength of it and the durability of it. And the iet that comes in the kit, is not considered invisible thread, if it's thick and black. I made a loop, and had it around my wrist, and I know that since I'm a magician, my eye might catch things other people won't, and so I looked through a mirror and put my arm far away from the mirror, and I could still see the thread. If I had a black shirt on, it's reflecting and you can tell there's thread. So all I ask is that if your going to make a kit that has iet, let it actually be invisible. And by invisible, I don't mean literally invisible. But hard for the human eye to see. I'm not going to perform the haunted deck to someone if they will clearly see the thread. And also don't put in the description of the trick that you'll be able to perform the haunted deck knowing the thread is visible. But other than that, the red balls are fine. The Sharpie is fine. Great explanation with the card tricks even though I already knew most of them. I do think that if your going to have a trailer where one of the guys bends the coin, that you put some kind of bent coin in the kit so people don't just have a bite off coin. In my opinion, "this is just my opinion" so many people know about the bite off coin already (even non magicians), and so I do kinda think that trick is a little old, but having a bent coin in there, would've been even better. I haven't gotten into every single thing in the kit, but all I know is I'm very disappointed with the thread. Mesika Thread is way better than this. Not even so thick. So if you fix your thread, maybe I'll give it 3
  10. Summary

    This is amazing! It is for a person first starting out learning how to become a magician. The videos are good quality and all the tricks are explained well! All that is needed is to take the time to learn what they are teaching anyone can do it! Absolutely amazing I could not recommend it more!!!
