“Harry Potter” fans have a new way to show their love this holiday season — and it doubles as a toy, too. A new “Harry Potter” Lego Advent calendar features Lego characters including Harry, Hermione and Ron, as well as Albus Dumbledore, Professor Filius Flitwick and Hedwig the owl.
The gift recipient will be able to recreate scenes from the popular Harry Potter movies with Legos (or invent their own). Some of the other toys include a buildable fireplace with Christmas decorations, a Great Hall table with accessories and a statue pedestal decorated with the four house crests. It even has a micro Hogwarts Express train!
We love the holiday theme the wizards at Lego designed for this set! There is so much detail, even down to Hermione’s wavy hair (and, of course, Harry’s scar) on the Lego mini-figures. We love that tiny Hogwarts Express, too, and the wizard chess set!
The Lego Harry Potter 2019 Advent calendar is available in stores and online for $37-38.
