Located in the shadow of the Empire State Building, Fantasma Magic is tucked away on the third floor of 421 Seventh Avenue, and other than a small awning, you could be forgiven for having never noticed it.
My 10-year-old son is fascinated with magic and has performed his own act at school for four years now. (This year he passed a blade sharp enough to cut a carrot through his lovely assistant's hand.) Given his passion for hocus-pocus, we're always scouring NYC's magic shops for the coolest, new illusions to beef up his bag of tricks. So we were both surprised when he was invited to a birthday party at Fantasma Magic—a shop neither of us had heard of.
Fantasma Magic is the largest magic kit manufacturer in the world, and its midtown Manhattan showroom is a hot spot for illusion and sleight of hand fans of all ages. The store is also home to a small museum devoted to Harry Houdini, and is an awesome birthday party spot. We know where we will be shopping for my son's next magic show!

Fantasma Magic is also a super-special . My 10-year-old son and I were invited to a celebration there this past winter, and it was a blast! I was particularly impressed with the fantastic service, plus all the extras. Each of the four party packages—which range from a better-than-basic magic party to an all-inclusive blowout—feature a professional live magic show. During the performance, the birthday child serves as the magician's official assistant, helping out with crowd-pleasing tricks that include a fluffy rabbit and live birds. The kid even gets to levitate in front of the guests! The party we attended was a mixed-age group, and the magician was able to tailor the show with tricks that entertained all of the children.
