Criss Angel is a freak — but not in the bad way. Criss Angel is a “mindfreak,” which means he can do crazy tricks nobody can figure out. His tricks are insane. He walks on water and even levitates.

I saw his magic kit — Criss Angel Mindfreak Platinum Magic Kit — on a TV commercial and decided to get it. This kit even contains instructions on how to do levitation. Other tricks are putting spikes through a coin, making a vision box, being able to penetrate glass and many more. My favorite trick is the mental freak. The easiest trick is one with a coin and the hardest is one using cups and balls.

At first, the kit looked plastic and cheap, but after I read the book of secrets and tips, I found it was very cool. The tricks fooled my friends and everybody in my family. This kit is fun to play with. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give away the secrets. But I will tell you it’s worth buying. This kit is for ages 8 to 108. It’s available at and some toy stores.
