So, recently when Drumond Park let me know about ‘Gee Whizz’ I knew Jack would be interested. I wasn’t sure if Jack would be the right age for the game as it says 5+ on the box however upon speaking to them we decided it was highly likely enjoyable for him.
Gee Whizz is one of three magic games in which Drumond Park offer, and is the one aimed at younger children. Inside the box there are different tricks in which your child can learn including cutting a rope, disappearing parrots, colour changing string and making a flower appear along with others.
To learn the tricks there is an easy to follow instruction manual featuring words alongside clear pictures. This means that the younger children are able to follow along and learn themselves. More or less, everything required for the tricks is included within the set. What we did with Jack was I would look how to do them then show him, to which he quickly picked it up and continued to do them himself. Each of the components for the tricks are the perfect size for little hands to hold and manoeuvre.
Majority of the tricks are really simple to do; Jacks favourite has been the flower growing trick. You simply place the feather inside the wand, place the wand in the flower pot (provided) and the magnetic base holds the feather whilst you remove the wand. Magic words are of course optional. The cutting of the string was also an enjoyable one for him and possibly the easiest of all with no preparation required.
Overall this set has been a big magical hit with Jack, and hes enjoyed wowing his grandparents with his new skills. The quality of the items is good, some are thin card which require extra care but overall great. Gee Whizz retails at £19.99 and would be the ideal gift for any child interested in magic both boys and girls alike. For more information and stockists visit Drumond Park.
