All children live in a magical world where anything is possible. Of course, that is mostly due to the fact that they are completely innocent to the rules of life, to the laws of physics, to the limitations of the human experience. Perhaps that is why small children are fascinated by magic tricks.
The purpose of magic—particularly sleight of hand—is to trick the brain into thinking one thing is going to happen but, instead, a different result comes out of the process. For children, of course, they follow the steps in a logical sequence and expect a very specific—and well-designed—outcome; though the end of the trick usually leaves them astounded.
And, as adults, we experience the same wonder when a professional Toronto Magician performs a well-crafted trick properly. We have the same sense of amazement that children do—except children have this experience far more often since, again, they live in a magical world where anything is possible.
SMART and MAGICAL ENTERTAINMENT
That’s why hiring a magician for a child’s birthday party—or other children’s event—is a smart way to go. Children will enjoy simple card tricks and sleight of hand, of course, but any type of magic will probably go along way with a rowdy group of kids who will get so caught up in the mystery of it all. Of course, any parent who has even an ounce of whimsy left will appreciate how watching this professional entertainer whisks them back to their own childhood, where they had once believed in magic too.
Indeed, one of the best traits of a magician is that you have to engage with them to truly enjoy the experience. Children, again, will sit still and watch with amazement and glee. But parents, too, may find themselves a little more rapt than they might otherwise believe. And a good magician might even take volunteers from the crowd to assist them with a few tricks. This, of course, makes for an even more memorable experience.
Speaking of getting people involved, if you do hire a professional magician for your child’s birthday party, they might find themselves at the center of the action. And since many great tricks often involve quality storytelling (its part of the distraction) you might find that some of the elements of these stories are familiar to you and your family, for an extra special experience.
