Hints, Tips & Tricks


Magic is a particularly fun and entertaining hobby for all ages.

It is also proven that learning magic has a whole range of potential benefits and is a great way of boosting life skills.

Marvin’s Magic are recognised as the number one brand for magic worldwide.

Multi award winning magician, Marvin Berglas, the creator of Marvin’s Magic comes from one of the most internationally respected families in the magic world. He has designed tricks and sets that have encouraged and inspired the magicians of tomorrow with ‘professional magic made easy’.

Noted psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman from the University of Hertfordshire carried out some research using magic with children which proved dramatic psychological benefits and effects as well as significant increases in both their social skills and confidence.

Marvin explains “Learning magic requires self-discipline, an understanding of how other people think, and an ability to entertain. It’s a unique way of developing an important set of psychological skills.“

“Unlike computer games, it encourages children to interact with their friends and family.“ adds Marvin.

Furthermore, a recent study from Professor Caroline Watt with Professor Richard Wiseman examined magic and wellbeing on both children and adults from around the world. It showed several positive effects and an improvement in many areas such as motor skills, mental health, psychological wellbeing, self-esteem, social skills, hope and self-image.

“I thoroughly recommend our magic“ says Marvin but please remember that fellow magicians must agree not to reveal the secrets within!

5 reasons why you should consider taking up magic…

1) Learning magic helps to build confidence. A magician needs an audience, and with every trick you perform to your friends and family members your confidence will grow and grow!

2) Performing magic will also help you to develop your presentation and communication skills which will serve you well in all areas of your life.

3) If you can entertain a crowd of people, you can instantly become the life and soul of any party or social gathering. Magic serves as the perfect icebreaker when you meet someone for the first time and will ensure that you always leave a positive first impression.

4) Magic is a universal language and can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of where you come from. If you meet someone that does not speak the same language as you, showing them a magic trick will help you to build an instant connection without even saying a word!

5) As magicians, our job is to transport our audience to a place where nothing is impossible. Magic can help to create a moment of pure wonderment, during which all of life’s stresses and strains seem to float away. Ultimately, we get to make people smile, and it really does not get much better than that.
