Target selling Harry Potter Sorting Hat that actually tells you which Hogwarts house you’re in

Admit it, you’ve imagined which Hogwarts house you’d fit into and you’ve taken all the online quizzes that place you into one — but now it’s time to finally know, once and for all. Target is now selling Sorting Hats — the magical item from the Harry Potter series that tells Hogwarts students which house they are in — so you can find out if you’re a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.

It’s about time they made this gift for all of the Potterheads out there! And since this magical hat is retailing at Target, it’s also more affordable than you might imagine. The retail chain puts $24.99 as the going rate for a genuine Sorting Hat.

OK, so you’re likely wondering how this Sorting Hat works, exactly. Well, it’s pretty much just like the one you’ve read about or seen in the movies, considering this hat actually talks. Place the hat on your head, and it will tell you — once and for all — which Hogwarts House you belong to.

The Famous AF YouTube account posted a video of the hat in action, so you can see how it works before you buy:

You can shop the Sorting Hat in Target stores and online, and given just how unique this product is — you can bet it won’t stay on the shelves for long.


The Sorting Hat is just one of about 500 Harry Potter-themed products Target has rolled out recently. So if you’re a fan of the series, you might want to check them all out.

And this isn’t the only “sorting” product you can shop, either. There are also candles that will change colors to reveal your Hogwarts House, as well as bath bombs that will turn your tub the color of the house you belong to.

Sorting Hat candles are available on Etsy and will change color as they burn to uncover the truth of which house you belong to. This one is from the MLCCo Etsy Shop and retails for $21.50:


You can also find the bath bombs that will sort you while you soak on Etsy. These happen to be from the ZenBathCandiesLLC Etsy Shop and retail for $4.99 each:


So, which house are you hoping to get sorted into?
