Magician Maarten Bruins provides professional magic shows for children. The show is suitable for both young and old children and even for adults who are watching.

Maarten is a professional, award winning children's magician with over 20 years of experience. Every year he performs a large number of shows throughout the Netherlands. What does a show of this magician for children look like?

The magic show itself lasts about one hour. It is an interactive show, where the children do not only have to sit still, but a real dove is conjured. The show is fun for both young and older children and even for adults who may be watching

At the end of the show Maarten teaches the children a little trick. All children will receive this trick to take home with them. If the children have seen Maarten before, this can be different

Of course everything is possible as far as time, duration and content of the programme are concerned. Maarten will always be present 45-60 minutes in advance to set up and prepare everything. He also has all the necessities with him. The only thing he needs is 1 power point and the audience. Sound, microphone, extension cord (10 meters), table etc. will be taken care of.


P.S. The price shown is for Amsterdam and surroundings and is indicative. Any parking costs are not included in the price. If you are interested, please contact us for the possibilities and the exact prices.

Perfect entertainment for entire birthday party group

Maarten is a very nice person and great magician act! Kids and adults enjoyed the fun filled and his great magic acts. It an interactive show that kids continued talking about and recreating the tricks on their own. Warm recommendation

What a great magician Maarten is!

He performed at my daughter's children's party when she turned 9. She and her friends really loved it. Maarten makes a lot of jokes that are well adapted to the age of the children, which made them fascinated non-stop. And also for the parents enough comments to laugh. Really a huge recommendation. When my second daughter is old enough I hope Maarten wants to come again! (via Google)

It was hilarious, surprising and interactive

Thanks to Maarten's magic show, my five-year-old son's birthday party was really fantastic! It was hilarious, surprising and interactive: the children (also his three-year-old brother) had a lot of fun for 1.5 hours. I would like to wish all parents the radiant faces (and faces of the adult spectators ;) that I saw during his show.

It was an incredibly fun, interactive show

During our summer weeks we asked Maarten for a magic show. The group consisted of 40 children between 4 and 12. This was no problem for Maarten. He adapted effortlessly to the level of the children and it was great fun for all the children (and adults who watched). Maarten paid a lot of attention to the children. We would definitely recommend Maarten to anyone who organizes something for children. (via Google)

Thanks Maarten for another fantastic party!

Last week we enjoyed a super fun magic show with 60 kids! With a nice dynamic with the audience, a lot of interaction with and space for the children. Lots of smiling faces and amazement everywhere. Good on level for the children from 6-8 years. For us now the 2nd show on location and it was just as much fun as last year! Nice that the music was just as loud when cleaning up!

Martin is a real magician! We had a lovely carefree children's party for our 2 sons (4 & 8 years). Maarten provides a dynamic interactive show. After the show Maarten put on some music to dance. The kids were totally crazy, but Maarten is the calm himself. Thanks for the nice afternoon! (via Google)

Thanks Maarten, we will definitely recommend you!

We had invited the whole class to the party of 2 year olds. Maarten managed to entertain 35 children between 3 and 8 from start to finish with a dazzling magic show, lots of humor and enthusiasm. The children were actively involved, the birthdaygirls were put in the spotlight and after that everyone got a nice balloon figure and a magic trick to take home with them. It really was a great party thanks to Maarten! Our son thought it was "the most beautiful day of his life" Well then it was a success :) (via Google)

He gave a fantastic performance

We googled Maarten and booked him for the BSO Christmas activity, just some booking from the internet was a bit tensive, but that turned out to be completely unjustified. The contact with Maarten was very pleasant. He gave a fantastic performance and was able to fascinate the children (age between 4 and 11 years) from start to finish. If we want another magic show at one of the locations of 'De Verbinding', we will definitely book Maarten again! (via Google)

I had lunch with the whole family on my 70th birthday. 29 people of which 14 grandchildren from 0 to 12 years old. For a full hour Maarten Bruins amused the children with a fantastic show. Not only the children but also the parents and grandparents were regularly included in the show. Excellent, friendly and witty magic show. Highly recommended if you want to be sure of quality.

Hello Maarten, a week ago you put on a great show for no less than 25 children in group 3 and 4! Well done, well adapted to the kids, but also the adults enjoyed it! What a humor you have! The act with the pigeons is still under discussion! Thanks again and see you soon! Greetings Rose

He is an absolute professional and an expert magician

We are a group of Indian expats staying in Amstelveen. We organized a social gathering for our friends to celebrate our calendar New Year and invited Maarten to perform in our event. He is an absolute professional and an expert magician. He presented us with an awesome show and entertained everyone present in the event (around 150 adults and 30+ kids). The kids enjoyed like anything and they were sad later when the magic show was over. We'll surely like to have him back in our future events. Thanks Maarten.

Thank you again for your fantastic performance on our daughter's 5th birthday. The 10 children mainly talked about the pigeon and the balloons they played with for a long time. The parents' favorite trick was to keep the 10 children in control for an hour and a half! Magicians never reveal their tricks but maybe you can teach them to us

Everyone kept saying how fantastic they thought it was. The appointments beforehand via e-mail went very smoothly, as well as taking a break during the show. You are flexible! And the talking to each other and the jokes with the children were very successful. A day not to be easily forgotten. Thanks a lot on behalf of the whole family!

The cutest, nicest and best of its kind

Last Saturday we celebrated the 10th birthday of our daughter Victorine with a bbq in a fairy-tale atmosphere. As a surprise we had the magic show for our 40 guests, including 15 children. The bbq literally fell into the water because of the very bad weather. Luckily the big partytent offered a solution, so we could enjoy the great show dry! We think it's a fairy-tale performance that you were able to captivate from start to finish, young and old! Most of the children were around 10 years old and they too sat on the edge of their seats in amazement! To all the people who are considering having a magician perform at their party, we advise: stop searching because you found the cutest, nicest and best of its kind here!

hiring Maarten is highly recommended

Thanks for your performance on Lynn's 6th birthday yesterday! We are still reminiscing and the pigeon was the talk of the day in class this morning. For other parents: hiring Maarten is really recommended. This was the most relaxed children's birthday I've experienced: no scavenger hunts that have already been wiped out, no children dropping out at the third game. And all very happy faces! The eldest daughter of 8 was also very enthusiastic.

Compliments for the nice performance at Nick's communion. We as guests at the party were very impressed. All children loved it and also the adults were very enthusiastic about it. Peter is still thinking how it all can be.hahaha The polonaise after chatting was also very successful. And the song of the houseboat you know now I think. In any case, good luck with your company and if there are people who are looking for a magician, we certainly recommend you.

Dear Maarten, many thanks for your very nice show on May 1st at our son's communion party. Young and old enjoyed the humor, the incomprehensible tricks and the fun and enthusiastic way you handled the children. It was nice to notice that the children did not talk about the magician afterwards but about the wizard... You made a very good impression, there was even a question in the adult audience if you already conjured a girlfriend at your side .... Good luck with the further development of your company and thank you again for making it such a party, greetings, Joost

A bull's-eye!

Maarten's performance on Thursday, October 18 in the Dorpshuis in Den Hout was great. Maarten gave two performances (for the youngest and the older students). He adapted perfectly to the age group (and the subject of the children's book week). He involves the children in the performance in a fun way
