have been some insanely visual magic tricks hitting the market recently, as well as some old classics given a new lease of life due to their performance on national TV.

Let’s start with Card-Toon!  If you didn’t see Jamie Raven’s incredible performance of this effect on Britain’s Got Talent, where have you been?  An animation when you riffle through a pack of cards reveals the spectator’s chosen one – whimsical and easy to do.  £14.50

chris wiehl arthur magic trick of the monthOn the subject of whimsy, Arthur is a new release (out today!) which has a lovely plot around the legend of King Arthur which makes a really memorable effect where the spectator’s card ends up stuck in a solid deck of cards like the famous sword in the stone.  £28.79

p ink trick of the monthIf you want to create special effects like magic up close and personal you’ve got to take a look at P’Ink by Ran Pink.  Watch the trailer for some ideas to whet your whistle for some of the possibilities here – as ink moves and changes at your command.  Some amazing mentalism applications too.  We hope to review this properly soon – but if it is half as good as the trailers it is well worth a look.  £22.99

imprint magic trick of the monthFrom one incredible trailer to another.  Imprint from Sans Minds magic looks equally amazing – again almost like camera tricks.  Objects visually imprint themselves on bank notes.  If you can get past the annoying person introducing it, you’ve got to watch the trailer!  £25.49 (may be on backorder still since it sold out  pretty quickly first time!)
