About Penguin Magic
Penguin Magic is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. They sell magic tricks, DVDs, videos, and performance supplies to magicians of all skill levels throughout the world.
What started out as an unfair dismissal turned into a blessing in disguise. Maxwell Murphy and Acar Altinsel started Penguin Magic in June 2002. They chose a penguin as their mascot because it looks like this bird was born with a tuxedo on so it is always ready to perform… hence the slogan “Born to perform” and Penguin Magic is born. It started out as a little “warehouse” (actually it was an apartment on top of a university) with boxes of merchandise from floor to ceiling. At first delivery trucks had to turn around in the parking lot but soon that turned into warehouses being opened in Las Vegas, London, and Sacramento, delivering magic products to 169 countries world-wide.
This is their passion. They do things a little differently than other magic stores. They have a vision of the perfect place to learn to be a magician, and work every day to bring that vision to life. They spend a lot more time in the studio producing instructional videos, and in the field testing new products.
“We share your excitement about magic, we love to perform, and we want to see your talent fostered. We have witnessed firsthand the kind of personal development that people of all ages experience through magic and performance. This kind of growth gives meaning to the work that we do. Thinking about all of the proud smiles makes it fun to come to work each morning.”
“Magic is different than other hobbies and even other performance arts. Magic has a very strong and wonderful community aspect to it. We’re proud to be a part of that community, and we welcome you and look forward to sharing our love of magic with you. “
“Magic is a powerful tool for connecting people and stimulating growth and development. Penguin Magic is privileged to be a part of The Penguin Foundation.
The Penguin Foundation
The Penguin Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing magic to critically ill children (affectionately called “sick kids”).
Our goals are to:
• Teach kids to entertain their peers and loved ones
• Promote personal growth through performance and
• Help sick kids envision a world of possibility
Many children face injury and disease that necessitate extended hospital stays. We believe it is possible to enrich the quality of this experience by giving the individual the opportunity to learn and perform magic tricks. Such a challenge can help build self-confidence, enhance social development, and reinforce a connection with peers, loved ones, and society.
The Penguin Foundation is one source of support for hospitals and other charitable organizations dedicated to helping sick kids. We work mainly by donating time, magic tricks and instructional DVDs to hospitals around the world. Since our financial resources are modest in comparison to societal needs, we focus on helping to create moments of joy. We hope these proud and magical moments, like the moment a child performs his or her first magic trick, will enrich the time spent in the hospital and possibly even develop into a meaningful hobby.
The Penguin Foundation is an Independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization. The funds derive from Penguin Magic, Inc. a Nevada Corporation.
