This summer, kids will be able to build their very own section of the Wizarding World — right in the middle of their home.
Unfortunately, there are no spells for stopping the pain when you step on a LEGO, but the LEGO Group and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will drop six new Harry Potter-themed sets this summer, incorporating the monstrous magical world into an easy-to-build kingdom.
Now everyone can recreate their favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films with miniaturized characters. Kids ages 7 and up can discover the Room of Requirement ($19.99) for some secretive Dumbledore’s Army training with Harry, Hermione, and Luna mini-figures. Those 9 ages and up can head over to the Astronomy Tower ($99.99) instead to hang out with Slughorn, dig up a mandrake, or chill in the Ravenclaw common room. In addition to the previous three figures from the last set, this one also comes with Draco, Neville, Ron, Lavender Brown, and Slughorn.
For kids ages 8 and up who want a more daring adventure, might I suggest heading into the Forbidden Forest ($29.99) with Harry and Hermione? Introduce the lovely, LEGO-fied Professor Umbridge to her new best friend — a 5-inch tall, buildable Grawp. Afterward, they can head to 4 Privet Drive ($69.99) to break out Harry from his cupboard under the stairs. The set includes Ron, the Dursleys, Harry, and Dobby. Of course, no escape would be complete without the 4-inch flying car.
Older kids who are still not over what happened in Deathly Hallows or The Half-Blood Prince (it’s okay — none of us are) can find some solace with the LEGO Attack on the Burrow set ($99.99) or build a magnificent Hedwig ($39.99). The Attack on the Burrow is the biggest set with 1,047 pieces and measures more than 13 inches tall. It’s designed with the colorful Weasley family in mind and comes with Ron, Harry, Ginny, Arthur, Molly, Tonks (I’m not crying — you are), Bellatrix LeStrange, and Fenrir Greyback. The set will be exclusive to Target in the U.S. For families to remember the greatest owl of all-time, the Hedwig LEGO set (see it at the top) is exclusive to Barnes & Noble and has a moveable wingspan of more than 13 inches.
Presales for the magical sets start on April 30 on LEGO’s website and select retailers. Families can officially recreate their very own Wizarding World when the LEGOs go on sale on August 1.
