Hey gang,

I wanted to share with all of you a very special Kickstarter project that my buddy Justin Meitz has put together and ask that you give this some serious consideration. Smile

KIDS DECK - PLAYING CARDS DESIGNED FOR KIDS by MAGIC HOUSE PUBLISHING

Image


Playing cards specifically designed for kids and magicians printed by the USPCC. PURE AWESOMENESS!

There are 3 decks in total, a Red & Blue backed deck and a special edition ABC123 deck all printed by the United States Playing Card Company. They have been specifically designed for kids and magicians! But wait, you aren't a kid or a magician...well if you play with cards, I consider you a big kid like me which means these are perfect for you too!

Image


Let me point this out right now! These are not the artsy playing cards that are so popular right now. And there is a reason for that. Have you ever been to a family reunion or a house party and someone breaks out the cards? Kids could care less! That's because there is zero connection for them. They would rather be in front of the TV playing video games. But with the Kids Deck, they will want to play and that means more family interaction time and less zoning out in front of the tube. Kids love these cards!

A Bit About Me:

My number 1 rule in life is have fun, and I try my hardest to do that every day. I am a third generation magician, learning magic from my grandfather, and absolutely love my job. I travel around the world performing my unique brand of stand up magic specializing in VIP events, trade shows, and corporate entertainment.

But I also had another job which really inspired the Kids Deck to come to life. I graduated from the University of Nevada Reno with a Bachelors of Science in education and a minor in elementary education. I spent 7 years teaching 2nd & 5th grade which was so much fun!

During my time as a teacher I always had my students use playing cards for multiplication and memory games. But, normal playing cards are sort of boring, especially to kids. I searched and searched but could never find a deck of cards for kids...

During this time I started Magic House Publishing and published the award winning picture book The Amazing Alexander and instructional DVD's for magicians. After retiring from teaching I decided it was time to have Magic House Publishing bring a deck of cards to kids that they would love to use. More importantly also learn from and not realize they are actually learning...we call that MISDIRECTION!

Red & Blue Kids Deck

Image


These decks are hand drawn in a fun kids design. Each card has its own unique face and every child will have their favorite.

Image


Both decks have different back designs and come with a double backed red/blue card to be used for simple, easy to perform, yet amazing magic tricks.

Image


The jokers make me smile every time I see them...a boy and girl which was so ingenious of the artist.

Image


Kids will have so much fun with these decks and in ways I will probably never realize. For those that want something fun, grab a couple uncut sheets which will look awesome in a playroom or hanging in the bedroom. Hang the ABC123 sheet next to the bed to practice ABC's and numbers before bedtime...remember that misdirection Smile

ABC123 Kids Deck

Image


The ABC123 Kids Deck was designed specifically to help kids learn the alphabet and their numbers. Each deck contains alphabet cards (A-Z) and numbers (1-26). Practice multiplication, create concentration games, or magically spell a person’s name. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this deck!

Image


Each deck also has a special double sided activity card loaded with 10 activities to be used with the alphabet cards and 10 activities to be used with the number cards. This means whether your kids are in the car on a road trip or you are in the classroom teaching, these cards are perfect for you!

Image


The ABC123 back has a different design from the Red & Blue Kids Deck and comes in an awesome orange to match the card box. And finally magicians now have a fun deck of alphabet cards to perform magic with! The deck includes a double backed card, a blank faced card, and activity card.

The Card Boxes

The card boxes are beautifully designed with fun 3D kid elements. If the project reaches $40,000 the card boxes will be embossed which means all 3D elements will actually be 3D!

A pretty assistant is the most effective form of misdirection.
