Gary Darwin is one of magic's biggest cheerleaders. He's also one of my heros.

When you see Gary performing magic, you see a man who is exactly where he wants to be. Like he always says, if he had a billion dollars, what would he do? Another magic show! It couldn't be more true.

Gary's love of magic is contagious. Watch this DVD, and you'll either fall in love with magic, or remember why you did years ago.

It's aimed at younger beginners, but a seasoned pro shouldn't be too surprised to learn a thing or two! Gary has been performing magic for over 50 years, and teaching it for almost as long.

Classics of magic along with original ideas are taught on this wonderful DVD.

Enjoy,

Acar Altinsel

Gary gets to the point with these "simple" tricks. This DVD is a real reminder that sometimes simple is best...and simple can be quite astonishing. I like his easy teaching style. He just gets to the meat of it. If you have not checked out his DVD's on thumb tip magic....you should do that as well.

Thanks for the free gift. I really enjoyed watching him breeze through these tricks.

I loved his talk about what you can personally get from magic.

Very Good Introduction To Magic For Beginners Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2013
I wish something like this had existed when I was a young boy back in the 1960's trying to learn magic. Of course that can also be said about the explosion of all the instructional magic media of the last few decades.

There is no substitute for seeing a trick performed by a master, even for these basic beginner tricks. The addition of performance and showmanship in this DVD will certainly inspire the next generation of magicians.

I would recommend that Penquin put together a bundle of the tricks explained at the beginning of the DVD along with the DVD and make it available for sale at a good price for first time magicians.

Great video for new magicians Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2012
I got this as a free download for Christmas (Thanks, Penguin!) and was pleasantly surprised with the content. It is aimed at young, beginner, magicians and is one of the best I have seen in it's category. It is full of actual beginner tricks anyone can do with items from home. Darwin does a great job at keeping things simple; many magicians making these "beginner" DVDs seem to forget what a beginner is.

Towards the end of the video he does use a thumb tip for a few tricks but that is the most expensive item you will have to buy. Darwin is a good teacher and explains everything very well. I thoroughly enjoyed watching every minute of it. Personally I would not have gotten $30 worth of information out of it but I am not the target audience. For a young beginner this would be a great start!

Wish I had this when I was a beginner Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2013
I bought this just because I was curious. I am not a beginner to magic at all, and I bought this to just see what Darwin was teaching people. I was amazed. It has not only a bunch of good magic tricks and fun tricks, but also it has a lot of really good tips for young magicians to be bale to grow in magic quickly. It teaches all sorts of showmanship skills and a bunch of good buying tips. I even learned one thing from it and I've been studying magic since I was 5! Buy it right now.

It's quick and dirty (when it comes to the tricks) but quite dry. My kids lost interest with it quickly and asked if I could just teach them the tricks instead. I wanted to like it but the only thing I found kid friendly about it was the kid tricks and props. Another reviewer said it's like watching your grandpa teach magic... I'd agree if you're grandpa teaches magic while hitting on one of your 20 year old cousin's girl friends. I can appreciate his zest for life, magic and young women but I found it a bit uncomfortable to watch.

There are other beginner magic videos that are more engaging for kids. My kids enjoyed this one more:
The Greatest Beginner Magic DVD Ever featuring Oz Pearlman and Jessie Geneva

Coincidentally Jessie Geneva is the same woman gramps is hitting on in this one.

Review for Italy! Report this review

I've only seen bits of this, but given the character and the production company (Gary Darwin, icon and pillar of Magic, Magic and the Penguin), has to be a quality product.

Here, too, goes on all aspects of magic, energy and Gary darwin 'overwhelming, 50 years of experience are seen, and the love he shows for magic and' engaging.

Very nice Report this review

Gary and his great gorgous assistant, were so fun to be around for 2 hour's. He os a very very likeable man.and so was the girl.
I was taught by guys like bob McAllister. And his tapes were so good. And gary reminds me alot of Bob in many ways. He just wanted to teach and have fun.lately with social media every one wants to sell you something.but not Gary.he wanted you to learn and just have a good time !!

my first DVD: a must for beginner. Many easy tricks that give you the opportunty of building your first routines or performances, friendly taught by a smiling great magician and a wonderful assistant. Nothing to add, just a DVD to have. (probably unusefull for advanced, but I don'to know, I will never get so far...)
