Kids Kards by Richard Pinner
Effect: A group of children that you did a show for have made you a unique and special gift as a thank you. Wonderful though this is, it's not a lot of use for performing with. So using your special powers you set about changing one card, then the whole deck into a more familiar and useful design.
With the brand new deck you demonstrate your skills with a little mind reading. However, racked with guilt at ruining the young ones' beautiful present you set about returning it to its former, if unconventional, glory
Each Kids Kards deck comes complete and ready to work. As you can see from the images, the artwork on the "kid" cards is charming - both the faces and backs have been custom printed and are perfectly in tune with the patter story of children designing a deck of cards. The trick is nearly self-working, the deck does all the work for you.
