The Christmas List - Master Magician Kit

Learn to produce sparrows from a flaming charcoal grill! Okay, so maybe it's a brazier, all I can say is I guarantee there isn't one in the Master Magician Kit. I'm also guessing the card tricks aren't all that elaborate or astounding and that your friends probably wouldn't be perplexed or amazed. The best bet is that half the pieces would be damaged or lost within a month, about three weeks after you got utterly bored with the whole magic thing.

The Master Magician Kit really was just a premium for purchasing a subscription to Open Road for Boys, a magazine dedicated to promoting outdoor activities to young boys. The magazine's run was from 1919 into the 1950's. I wonder if anyone told them stage magic isn't really an outdoor activity?
