Number 10 Pick: Wand to Flower
The magician shows an empty flower pot and drops in a red ‘seed’. With a wave of the magic wand, the seed instantly blooms into a beautiful flower! This trick is perfect for a children’s magic show because it’s colorful, easy to watch, and impressive.
This stage magic prop is cheap, easy to perform, and set up. It’s made with high-quality materials, and no skills other than good showmanship are required.
Not a bad prop to kick off our list.
Number 9 Pick: Appearing Cups
Six cups appear one by one between two plates.
It’s easy, very visual, and fun.
In addition, ‘Appearing Cups’ comes with everything you need to perform including online instructions.
Number 8 pick: HANK COOL IT!
This is an extremely visual and funny trick. It is super easy to learn and perform if your showmanship is good.
You’ll love performing this and children will find it hilarious.
Also, it’s quite cheap.
Number 7 pick: Silly Billy Feather Duster Wand
An ordinary magic wand magically changes into a feather duster with the ‘Feather Duster Wand’ from legendary Children’s Magic Performer David Kaye — better known as ‘Silly Billy’.
This is a new and improved version and is now spring-activated, allowing you to eject the feather duster from the wand tube with one hand — making it more magical than ever. It’s also now available in multiple vibrant colors: red, yellow, green, and blue.
You display the wand to your child helper and say, “Everyone is watching you, so you need to look your best.” Change the wand instantly to a feather duster, and begin to dust them off. Then tickle them under their arms. Once you start, all the kids want to be ‘cleaned off’. This is a great wand for walkaround magic too because it’s a visual gag that enables you to interact with many people quickly.
This is guaranteed to make children laugh.
The ‘Silly Billy Feather Duster Wand’ offers many uses:
- ‘Cleaning’ up a child volunteer
- A running gag throughout your show
- Doing ‘impressions’
- A repeatable walkaround gag
Each ‘Silly Billy Feather Duster Wand’ is 9 inches long. It comes with instructions and 20 funny bits of business and gags honed over years of performances.
Number 6 pick: Stiff Wand
Another wand I know, but this trick is pretty cool.
This Product is a giant magic wand that can be wrapped up into a tight coil, and then become as rigid as a pole on your command!
Multiple effects and animations can be made with this wand.
This is perfect for kids and family magic shows.
Number 5 pick: Inflatable Wand
The last wand, I promise.
If you’re looking for a large inflatable magic wand, I found one.
When I saw this 8-foot inflatable wand I thought it was one of the best props for kid entertainers. It has the potential for endless entertainment if you are creative enough.
Each wand comes with a protective carrying bag to make sure your wands are always looking their best.
The wands are available in different sizes:
- 1 foot
- 2 feet
- 4 feet
- 6 feet
- 8 feet
Note: You’re going to need to provide your air to fill the wands.
Number 4 pick: Triangle Production Box
This high-quality prop looks and works great. It’s perfect for enhancing all your favorite routines and is a fantastic addition to children’s magic shows. It has been specially designed for silk routines including color-changing skills, 20th-century silks, and more. It can also fit other small or similar items.
You can easily and quickly produce, vanish or transform silks or other small objects which leaves kids in amazement and confusion.
Number 3 pick: Rose light
A beautiful, self-contained visual effect!
After plucking a light out of thin air, you toss it into a rose in your hand. This rose is now beautifully glowing. The light can then be “plucked” out of the rose again.
The ‘Rose Light’ is super easy to use. It’s always 100% under your control.
Perfect for kid’s shows, silent acts, or any other type of magic show.
The reason it’s in the number three spot is that it’s such a cool children’s trick for a great price.
Number 2 Pick: Umbrella From Bandana Set
The umbrella from the bandana set is an amazing prop for kids as it is super visual and entertaining. When I was a kid this simple trick would blow my mind. It’s a fun, magical, mysterious trick. However, this magic prop is quite expensive.
The props are large handkerchiefs that instantly transform into big colorful umbrellas. Also, it is super easy to perform and set up.
All in all, I think it’s a perfect stage trick for a children’s magic show.
Number 1 Pick: Dancing Vanishing Cane V2 (DVC)
Dancing Vanishing Cane V2 is the perfect finale for any dancing cane routine.
This trick will make kids believe real magic is possible.
You can freely levitate a walking cane and then, at the end of the routine, vanish the cane into a burst of confetti or transform it into a silk scarf, even do a color-changing cane effect. Dancing Vanishing Cane offers a perfect ending for your routine.
This upgraded version does not require assembling. It comes ready to go out of the box.
Dancing Vanishing Cane V2 has many uses
- Color change
Available in Black or White.
