Beginners Start Here

 

You have decided you want to learn magic tricks. Maybe to have some fun fooling your friends, or perhaps you have always wanted to learn how to do magic tricks and now is the time to take your first step.

Chances are, you have searched the Internet for magic tricks to learn, found a LOAD of magic sites and were surprised at the HUGE range of books, DVDs and tricks each magic shop website offers. It's very confusing! Most magic tricks come with descriptions that are written for professional magicians rather than beginners, and with thousands of ways to begin to learn magic tricks to choose from, where do you start?

Well, we know exactly how you feel! After all, we all started that way too. Every magician remembers walking into a magic shop and feeling lost, while staring at all the strange items in the display cases, or browsing for HOURS through a magic tricks website, not knowing which magic tricks would be the best to learn first.

We have the solution! Here at The Merchant of Magic, we are totally and completely, obsessed with teaching you how to learn magic tricks. After all, everyone on the team is a full-time professional magician, and when we are not performing, we are supplying magic tricks through The Merchant of Magic, and playing with all the new releases. This gives us the perfect opportunity to see which items are the best for total beginners to start to learn magic tricks. We have helped thousands of beginners around the world and followed so many of them as they developed their skills over the years. It's very rewarding, and teaches us so much too!

In this section, we have chosen our most highly recommended 'first purchase' easy tricks. You could just close your eyes, and randomly select any of these items and we know you will have made a wise choice. Each assumes no previous knowledge, yet delivered excellent tuition and amazingly strong and entertaining easy magic tricks.

Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with just a single step...
