I don't go looking for trouble. Trouble usually finds me. Your little wizard can fly away to safety with this famously fast broom! Includes one plastic toy broom with plastic bristles and flexible accents. Measures approximately 3'H. Wipe clean. This is an officially licensed Harry Potter product.

Title: Must have
Date:August 29, 2009
"Made of durable plastic and some kind of rubber substance, this is an immediate hit. The 5-year old I gave it to mounted it and whizzed around the house pretending to play Quidditch. From the light in his eyes, he was flying just as they do in the movies - he loved it. Comes with a cord to hang it up, which should be used. Just the right size for small children. One additional note: someone should make a Nimbus 5000 label to put on the broom - my nephew wondered immediately if it said that somewhere and seemed slightly disappointed that it didn't. But he got over it very quickly and resumed zooming. This seems like a ( hard plastic) broom that could take a bit of use and still be in good shape"

Title: Huge hit
Date:August 29, 2009
"The wand is immediately sound and light active. It's very durable hard plastic (and virtually kid-proof) and my nephew immediately began casting spells everywhere. This is what you wish for in a toy - it calls up his memory and imagination. He noted (he's 5) that it called for a "strong arm, Mommy!" - which is true. But you can also get it to activate by tapping it lightly on the floor or wall or table top, so it's not impossible for younger children."
 
It is the smartest hat around! This hat truly does know all! Includes one brown witch style hat with fringed patches. Size-adjustable, with ties. 20"H. Polyester. This item is an officially licensed Warner Bros. Entertainment™ product.

Title: Big hat for the value
Date:August 29, 2009
"My nephew didn't ask for this, but we purchased it anyway, and his eyes lit up when he put it on. It's very tall and big, just the way the real hat is in the movie - extremely realistic. Leave time to unpack it and get it to stand upright on its own - otherwise, it tends to flop over because it's been a bit squished in the packaging.
We know he'll be playing with this with his friends - he told us so! If someone could figure out a way to put a battery pack and voice messages in the very tip of the hat, so that whoever wore it would trigger the name of one of the houses (Ravenclaw, etc.), it would be even more of a hit.

Title: Well-made costume
Date:August 29, 2009
"This costume is nicely finished, warm flannel, adjustable to various "widths" of kids, has a great hood for inclement weather, has Harry Potter's name and Gryffindor (spelling?) on the front, plus the number 7 and Potter on the back. My nephew got into it immediately, with a huge smile, and didn't want to take it off for 2 hours. This will definitely be something he'll play with for quite a while to come. It feels like a quality fabric, soft to the touch, that won't irritate a child's skin, especially if he/she isn't wearing a shirt underneath.
Highly recommended, just for the child's smile that you get.

Need a scar? Create the most realistic lightning-bolt scar you can get without being zapped by Mr. You-Know-Who. Wear it with any Harry Potter costume for a more authentic look. Kit includes deluxe latex scar, 4-color makeup tray, sponge/brush applicator, scar wax, packet of face adhesive, and full application instructions. Cleans up best with makeup remover (sold separately.) This item will not be accepted for return unless it is unopened and sealed in its original packaging.*This item is an officially licensed Warner Bros. Entertainment™ product.

Title: Purchased but haven't used yet
Date:August 29, 2009
"This looks very interesting and really perked up the interest of my nephew when he found out what it was. Instructions seem sufficient and you definitely can't be Harry Potter without the scar. My nephew was chomping at the bit to try it out but we're holding off until Halloween!"
 
Look like Harry Potter! Watch kids and adults slip on these wire-rimmed glasses and, like magic, transform into Harry Potter. *This item is an officially licensed Harry Potter product.

Title: Excellent buy
Date:August 29, 2009
"These glasses make the Harry Potter costume so authentic. They're made of wire, solid, and will probably stand up to lots of wear and tear from younger children. My 5-year old nephew couldn't take them off - he loved looking at himself in the glasses. That's my definition of a hit and for the price, they're very, very good."
