Like I said, it's My opinion, right or wrong. That is what's good about discussion, you can get several different out looks from different people.
It's my own personnal dislike for card tricks, I just think they're boring.
Doesn't mean they are to everyone, but they are to me.
The person who started this post said that he is an amateur card magicican, now if that is all he knows and tries to do card tricks for kids as a show I think that will be a tough sell.
Me, I'll never do even one.
Neither would I ever suggest any.
How many card tricks would you try at a kids show??
I have to say I agree with you on that one, I got away from the point that he is a amateur card magician. I would not recommend a amateur card magician to do card tricks for kids.
The basic point I was trying to make is; if you entertain, have fun, and the kids enjoy you and what you are doing that is all that matters. Whiter it be a card or match box trick once the right presentation is put into a trick it will work.
Well, I guess to each his own. I am an avid follower of guys like David Kaye, who have made very successful careers in childrens performing. For the 3-4 year old age group, you will never find guys like that performing standard card tricks.
By the way, David Ginn is coming to Calgary, Alberta at the end of May. I've seen many of his lectures and I've known him for years. I'll ask him if he ever performs standard card tricks for 3-4 year olds.
Card tricks for very young kids would certainly seem to be the road less travelled. But, over the years, I've learnt that sometimes the road less travelled is less travelled for a reason.
As for card tricks and very young kids, I understand what that reason is, and I accept it. If performers in my area want to do card tricks for very young kids, all the more power to them. I'll be happy to pick up all of the repeat bookings they don't get.
Yes that is a good idea, ask him. But 3-4 year olds? where did you get that age from, it certainly wasn't me. And as for standerd card tricks they would not work for kids, I said if you put the right PRESENTATION into a trick it will work. Obviously a standerd card trick wouldn't work for kids, you need to put a fun easy to follow twist on them.
