When the Legends of Magic set arrived from HearthSong, it was a huge surprise for my soon-to-be tween son, and he unwrapped it with nervous and excited hands. When he discovered the Legends of Magic set, I heard a screechy scream so high-pitched that I had to cover my ears. For a moment there I feared that the photo on the box would not live up to the expectations that obviously came with the scream.

My son’s favorite tricks to do are the cups and balls and the metal linking rings, and the magic box sure is a hit as well. My son says that the magic wand is just like the one he wished for, and when asked which part of the Legends of Magic set is his favorite, he always exclaims EVERYTHING!
The Legends of Magic set is very comprehensive, and to be able to take full advantage of this kit, it is essential that you explore the very detailed instruction manual. If your child takes the time to read about the tricks, the Legends of Magic set can really help your child understand the power of illusion. It is a great way to learn about the world around us, and about how it changes depending on how we perceive it.
I am amazed at how the Legends of Magic set seems to have given my oldest son the confidence he needed in order to break through his shy exterior to perform in front of other people. It makes me wonder whether the Legends of Magic set will actually open up an entirely new world to my son, and I am so excited that he is finally opening up to the world around him.
The Legends of Magic set is recommended from age 7 and up, and I agree that this will be the perfect age group. Unless your child is a great reader, he or she will probably need a little help with reading the detailed instructions.
