Used to come here as a child to get stink bombs and floor bangers, great to see the shop still going strong on a recent visit of mine to Wakefield. Take your kids there and blow their minds innit.

I attended one of Merlin's introduction to magic courses a while back and it was excellent. A brilliant shop to return to for supplies and professional friendly advice. Top notch.

I visited here asking for advice on creating an effect for our magic show, the guys here were most helpful even demonstrating several effects so that I could choose the best one for the job, highly recommended especially on a rainy Wednesday 🤪
