About this project


This project is not just about bringing back a choice when it comes to trick or treating. It’s all about creating magic and helping kids develop communication skills through the art of magic!

Magic is a great way for kids to interact with other kids and adults. By giving the gift of magic, you can spark something in children that boosts their creativity and self confidence.

When it comes to Halloween, we have noticed more people giving away small toys, stickers, and other non-edible things. Following that trend, we wanted to create something with a purpose to give out. So we have designed 8 super-fun, collectible mini magic kits that you can give away, guaranteeing you’ll be one of the coolest houses in the neighborhood this Halloween.

When kids say "Trick or Treat?" you say, "Happy Halloween, you get a TRICK at our house!" You can even show them the trick if you like.

Plus, these mini magic kits have been designed so they can be used year-round (No references to Halloween at all). For example, they can be used as stocking stuffers, party favors, for Easter egg hunts, at dentists' offices, and even as prizes for good behavior at school just to name a few!



With your help we will be making 8 completely original, super easy to do, never before seen, you can't get anywhere else, mini magic kits that kids of all ages will LOVE. Our packaging is custom made for this and is magic in itself!

We have designed each trick with kids in mind. Half the tricks are perfect for younger kids (3 to 6) and the others are great for all ages. And we have priced this with you in mind:

  • Each mini magic kit is full color and printed on quality card stock.
  • They are about the size of a pack of collectable cards. (3" by 4")
  • Tricks come in assorted bags (All 8 tricks are in every bag).
  • Shipping is FREE in the US and we will ship in early October.
  • Magic tricks never expire and can be used for any occasion.
  • The tricks are all super EASY to do.
  • A bag of tricks is super affordable (About the same as good candy).

A chocolate variety pack (120 pieces) sells for $29.43
A variety box of tricks from Discover Magic (144 tricks) is only $36 


Let's do a few other comparisons of candy vs. magic:

Candy lasts for a moment….  Magic lasts a lifetime
Candy is all about you….  Magic is all about others
Candy rots your teeth....  Magic makes you smile
Candy increases calories....  Magic increases confidence
Candy makes you hyper....  Magic makes you happy

Here are the simple steps kids will take to get started on their magical adventure...

1. Tear off the perforated tabs to unlock the magic.
    2. Punch out the items for your trick.
        3. Follow the simple instructions and share the magic with others.

PLUS, throughout this special collection of 8 magic tricks kids will also discover optical illusions, puzzles, betchas, jokes, and tips on how to become a greater performer through the traits of a true magician: Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, Confident, Humble, Creative, Authentic, and Giving.

                     Here's the list of all the magic tricks:

#1 GRAND ILLUSIONS: 3 Brain Bogglers
#2 WACKY WEATHER MACHINE: Make it rain the unusual
#3 FUNNY FORTUNE-TELLER: Read someone's mind
#4 SUPERHERO SOCKS: Predict the future
#5 APPEARING TREASURE: Find a lucky gold coin
#6 INCREDIBLE SHRINKING DOG: Instantly change a dog's size
#7 COOL CARDS: Turn any card into an ice pop
#8 THE MAGIC TRUNK: Vanish an elephant

Our budget for this project is $12,000. This will cover all of our production and set-up costs for all 8 mini magic kits. We already have an amazing manufacturer lined up and we are proud to say that all these tricks will be made right here in the U.S.A.

Our plan is to begin production as soon as the campaign ends and have all tricks delivered and in your hands by the first week of October.

Our DREAM goal is to get these tricks in the hands of 1 million kids this Halloween! With your help we can do it!

 


The rewards are different quantities of mini magic kits (Tricks) for the most part. BUT we do have a few fun extras, too.  Like the NEW Discover Magic Funbook:  An activity book with over 150 magic puzzles, games, jokes, riddles, tricks, optical illusions, and more. ($20 value) 

Plus, we have teamed up with Vybe Socks and some reward levels even come with ACTUAL superhero socks that you can wear to take your Superhero Sock performance to the next level.

Risks and challenges

We have a manufacturer lined up and samples in hand. We have given ourselves plenty of time to produce this. The only risk is if for some reason we have to find a new manufacturer, that could cause delays.
