Details on Gary’s "Magic by Mail” monthly program for ages 5-12.
For kids ages 5-12, "Magic by Mail" is
 a program where you can get a different magic set each month in the mail.
Each month I will send you a magic set containing at least 9 high quality challenges.  I'll also include online video instructions of me teaching each trick.  And the cost is as low as $20 per month (with free shipping). 
These tricks will always be completely different than those given at my park district magic classes.  So if you currently take my park district classes, you can do both the park district classes AND this mail-order magic.  The tricks will never be the same.

Sign up to receive the tricks for just one month . . . or sign up to get new tricks each and every month. 
Call or email me to start this program (or if you have other questions).

Commonly asked questions about the magic set for kids
What is in the magic sets, and when will I receive them?
Each set will have at least 9 high quality tricks and challenges in them.  You'll get store-bought tricks, card and coin tricks, brainteasers, optical illusions, and much more.  And these sets will be mailed to you the first week of each month.
Can I just try it once to see if I like it?
Absolutely.  If you want to sample the program, you can give it a try for just one month.
How will children learn the tricks, and what ages is this appropriate for?
I have online videos of me teaching each trick in great detail.  There will be no difficult instructions to read.  And the tricks are great for ages 5-12.  (I also have more advanced magic for adults and teenagers.  Click here to go to the more advanced magic for adults and teenagers.)
Will the tricks be different than the ones that you teach at my local park district?
Yes.  The tricks that I mail will always be completely different than the ones that I give out at my park district classes.  This program is not meant to replace my regular classes.  It simply allows you a chance to get magic on a much more regular basis.  So keep coming to my park district classes each time they're offered.
Why are you offering this program?
(1) There are very few places for children to buy magic nowadays.  So this program allows children a way to get magic on a regular basis.
(2) Other magic sets may not be age-appropriate and the written instructions are often very difficult to understand.  So I wanted to design a program where children could learn magic in a fun and easy way.
(3) Children always tell me that they can't wait for my next classes.  So this program allows them to get new magic each month.
What are Gary's qualifications as a magic teacher?
For the last 17 years I have taught my classes at over 135 park districts.  I have taught over 70,000 children.  My teaching style is very kid-friendly, and I make sure to always provide fun and age-appropriate tricks.  I am also a school social worker. . . . . . . (847)624-6244
