Looking for kid-friendly videos about sleight-of-hand with cards.

My kids have become fascinated with card games lately, and more specifically, being able to handle the cards well and do stuff like shuffling, fanning them, flipping them domino-style, etc. I'd like to blow their minds with videos of people who are AMAZING with sleight of hand. But it needs to be clean and age-appropriate (ages span between 6 and 11). Basically, I'm looking for the Jackie Chan of card manipulation.

I'm aware, for instance, of Ricky Jay being pretty amazing, but given his work with David Mamet I'm reluctant to put any of his videos on without pre-screening the whole thing for profanity or adult patter. Are there any of his videos that are both amazing and kid-friendly? Who else is great and would be a good fit?
Please note that I'm not necessarily looking for card tricks, but really amazing card manipulation. Although I suppose the odd trick would be fine, as long as it emphasizes amazing SOH skills. Tutorials would also be appreciated.
