Magic kits magic great gifts, not just for Christmas, they’re great for birthdays, etc. Many professional magicians got started by getting a magic kit for their birthday. A good example of a magician that got started with a magic kit is Criss Angel, he got a magic kit when he was 10 years old and is now a superstar!
The great thing about most magic kits is that they are geared for kids just starting out. So they’ll be full of easy magic tricks for kids. When getting a magic kit try to get one that’s got a specific age range. For example if you kid is nine years old a magic kit with an age range for 6 – 12 years is better than one that’s got an age range of 6 – 96 years. The tricks in the magic kit will be better suited for a nine year old.
Now once you’ve gotten one magic kit and you kid has been introduced to magic then shopping for magic kits or magic tricks with broader age ranges is more appropriate.
