Cheap Classic Magic Tricks for Kids

Okay, so these tricks won’t mystify you, or won’t for very long, but if you ever played with them when you were a kid, you’ll recognize their power immediately. Easy to do and perform, they make very good introductions to the world of magic.

Visit HobbyTron.com the coolest Hobby storeWe’ve found a good supplier of these. The prices on these specific items are among the lowest I’ve seen anywhere. You can also get 5% off by using the promotion code MAGIC (please email us at feedback@greatdad.com if for some reason this code does not work).

All of these simple tricks (except one) are priced from $1.25 to $2.25. They make great stocking stuffers, party favors, or road-trip distractions.


1. Magic Ball and Vase:   

This classic trick would of course be more impressive if the vase was porcelain and the ball was slightly more solid, but it’s a fun little trick as well. More experienced magicians will start to use some sleight of hand with the little ball.

2. Magic Penny to Dime:

This trick is also very simple and the solution will be completely amazing to anyone under ten years old.

3. The PENA coin:

PENA here, I guess, stands for penetration because this trick allows you to pass an ordinary coin through a piece of rubber and into a glass.   The trick can be done close up and the spectator can even tap on the coin to make it go through.   This trick is also featured in the Klutz Guide to Magic and they call it one of the best magic tricks they have ever seen.

4. The Coin Slide:         

Sure,it’s goofy now, but we all had one when we were six or seven and proudly showed off our ability to “do magic.”  The price on this item can’t be beat.

5. Folding half-dollar:


You’ve probably heard of these and wondered how they work. This is a very fun trick that kids love to do.  It’s good either by itself, or you can make the half dollar go into a bottle with very little practice.

Have fun.

I bought the coin slide, and unfortunately, the quality isn't top notch.It kept sliding by itself revealing the "trick." Low price, low quality. EDITOR

I finally got "Scotch and Soda," an old classic. It's about $20, but is really fun with kids. They are mystified and then can do the trick pretty well by themselves.
