I could not be more disappointed with the two Kids Kards I bought recently (by FEDEX to Brazil and
custom taxes) from Penguin. The instructions of Mr Pinner and Oz Pearlman will tell you that the
cards will fall in pairs but it is not true with the decks I received. The roughing fluid does not
work and Penguin suggested that I should look for a spray with roughing fluid in Brazil to fix this
problem myself! This spray is unknown where I live and I think the manufacturer should guarantee
the quality of this product, the prejudice is mine - right to the trash.
I have Mirage and
Invisible Bicycle Decks using roughing fluid for years without any problem.and save your
away from Kids Kards and save your your money.

The method is known, no expectation of this. But the routine is very nice and the cards too!!
Even the method is known, the effect is great!! ;)
I had someone suggest this card trick to me. I now use it in my haunted pub crawl. In my scenario
I use it as a child schizophrenic with use of the BOOK TEST "Ash" a diary. Used this way, it gets a
great reaction when it starts as a kids drawn deck then as she progresses into the mental illness,
her new personality is "older" and more mature the cards began to change into a real deck. Anyway,
it works great for this and even used with it's original effect, it's a worker. I use it all the
To be honest, other than the classic Coloring Book ... you won't find a more visual effect to
perform for children. This is one of my go-to routines when I'm performing Strolling Magic. Great
for one-on-one or even for small groups, everyone gets involved. I must have performed this
thousands of times ... no joke. Heck I must have a dozen of these sitting around. When I get a
chance I spray them with Testor's Dull Coat as needed.
Truly the best gaffed deck on the
marked for children! Highly Recommended!
This is perfect for strolling magic. The story is engaging, the cards are charming, and the effect
is powerful and extremely visual. I highly recommend it!
I love, love, love this trick! It is so straight forward, easy to do under surrounded situations,
multi-phased, entertaining/stunning for both kids and adults, and automatically reset. What more
could you want? I had a walk-around outdoor Christmas festival gig in December in Canada, which can
be kinda cold on the hands and made it difficult to do sleight of hand.. this fall-back effect was a
spread PERFECTLY..fan perfectly..WORK perfectly...this is a gimmicked deck that i have used for many
many years.. i actually wore them out after 5 years and just purchased another one..this trick
KILLS...adults AND children..PERFECT for the resturaunt worker,or any walkaround magic..the perfect
FAMILY trick... LOVE IT!
This trick is a lot like the mental photography deck but with a different, just as cool ending.
Spectators really like to see the uniqueness of the cards and they are just blown away when they all
change to real fronts, and even more blown away when the backs change too. The downside is that the
deck can't be inspected but if your presentation is down pat then you won't even be asked. Pick this
up and you'll have a lot of fun performing it.
Kids Kards is my newest and favorite trick to perform. Dont let the simplicity and look of this
set deceive you. I personalized the patter so it involves my kids, and it is so stronger and
better. This three phase routine is great because it builds each step of the way. And the metal
prediction at the end blows the audience away. I performed this at my local IBM Ring and got great
feedback. They loved the story behind the cards.
This trick plays real well for children,with the right patter it can be a good trick for adults as
well. Also its really 2 tricks in one its a deck change and a mind reading trick at the same time. I
really enjoy this one.
