Hanky Panky Toys Group has been leading the way in Magic innovation for children and has developed and updated existing magical principles to make Magic stay in vogue with the new generations of children. Examples of this can be seen with the Street Magic Magic-baseball cap with a secret compartment, Gross Magic and Glow in the Dark Magic. In fact Hanky Panky has led the way in developing brands of magic first with Merlin’s magic, (the most famous of all magicians) at the FISM™ World Championships of Magic™ in 2003 a Merlin Magic box was recommended as one of the finest magic boxes for children. Hanky Panky Toys Group is proud to have been elected as an official FISM™ partner.
