Somebody already mentioned this and I second: That's one volume of Tarbell.

I suggest Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. There's SO much magic in there, great stuff for beginners, explained thoroughly. The content is varied enough that you will be able to nibble around and find what type of magic suits you.

Hmmm. As far as I understood he is NOT new to magic but wants some concrete recommendations, not hints to common magic literature. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Once again thanks olaf because mind you guys...I just got out of small little cheap tricks that your Grandpa taught you at 7 years or on the internet maybe about a year or 8 months ago because I only tested tricks on my parents or my very close friends. So all these options to jump even deeper into this world is hope ful. THanks!


So my tricks just became really good but I do not have many props because I was very interested in card magic then. SO honestly I don't know what a beginner really is in this field of entertainment.But I don't think I am new.

But what about the two links I gave?

Thought I had answered this one.

First link:
You don't need 16 sponge balls of various sizes. Buy 4 only (2", red, super soft).

Second link:
I don' t know this particular DVD. The one I can recommend is Steve Dacri's "Sponge ball toolbox". Maybe someone else can help out here?

Yep.

Well, if you happen to be 12 years old with really small hands, then maybe you go for smaller ones for a start. But the size does not matter as much as one would think. I am sure most people will be happy with 2", even ones with small hands. Since sponge balls are - you guessed it - made of sponges, they are highly compressable. E. g. you should be able to hold one in thumb palm without flashing even with small hands. For routining you will impress your spectators much more by vanishing a large balls as by vanishing a small one, since it is "more impossible" for the eye.

Steve Dacri demonstrates on his DVD how easy handling of larger sponge balls really is. In fact he is uncomfortable with small ones. I agree here, so you should be fine.

I'll try out with 2´´...but the reason I was thinking about the assortment of sponge balls was because a free thumb tip came with. But i´l try and find a nice deal and buy it.But I will have plenty of money leftover to get some other things too...there was something that I wanted and it is on the tip of my tongue but I forgot what it was...

Most of my favorites are in Volume 7, but it is probably a good idea to start with 1 and get like one a month. You'd stay busy that way.
I lucked out and someone who cared about me gave me the whole set for my birthday a couple years ago.
