Sons Get Elbow Deep In Disgustingness: Drumond Park Gross Magic
Drumond Park sent us their latest 2015 edition of Gross Magic for review. All views are my own.
Maybe you’re in a hurry and want to cut right to the chase.
I’m supposed to be telling you whether or not it would make a good addition to your Chrismas lists, but I’ve had a better idea. This would work fab as a half-term/Halloween activity. You could spend the week practicing magic tricks then put on a toe-curling, scream-inducing magic show for Christmas.
The Product Info Bit

What’s in the box:

The Sons’ Feedback
Son #2 (8.5 years) mastered the toilet trick quickly, and didn’t want to try much else. He happily walked around the living room showing my entire extended family a magic trick involving a dirty toy bog, just minutes before Sunday dinner. He also loved the fake tooth. It is very convincing and there’s whole world of fun to be had with this prop.
Son #1 (10 years) has an older version of this magic set so he was very familiar with it, and expertly performing tricks within minutes of the box being open.
The Boss’s Feedback
This is a challenging magic set. Children aged 8-10 years will need support to practice the tricks before they are ready to perform them smoothly. Older children, who are confident readers and have good fine motor skills should manage on their own. It may be helpful for an adult to spend a while practicing the tricks so they are able to answer any questions.
I would love to see some instructional YouTube videos to go with this set. Son #1 is considering recording one, but is currently camera shy, so alas, no video to go with this review.
If your child has seen this advertised on TV, they probably have the newest edition in mind. To help you buy the right set….
