I assume that you’ve already taken the sorting quiz on Pottermore, so you can take pride in your designated house with these crystal sorting hats from Etsy seller PottaMasterCrafter (the same guy behind the popular crystal Poke Balls).

Each crystal hat weighs over four pounds and features the crest and LED lights in the color of your chosen house. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

You could own Harry Potter’s childhood home. That is, if you’ve got £475,000 handy – that’s about $620,000. [click to continue…]

Even the most dedicated Harry Potter fan probably doesn’t remember all of the magical objects in the Wizarding World. Thankfully, this Magical Objects of the Wizarding World print from Pottermore and Pop Chart Lab can help you keep track magical objects both “important and incidental”. Take a closer look below.

Whether you’re planning a Harry Potter party, or getting ready for Halloween, this animated spellbook is a perfect prop for the occasion.

The book has all sorts of spooky details and comes with lights, sound effects, and a moving magnetic quill that follows a hidden, circular track.

All you need is a couple AA batteries and a place to put it. I’d love to see someone use this in a Harry Potter cosplay. See it in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

Time was, if you wanted a Frappuccino you’d have to pay for it with your credit or debit card like an animal. And don’t get me started on cash. Fortunately, muggles have evolved to the point where we can pay for things with our smartphones. It’s almost like magic, but not quite. For real magic, you need a wizard.

You need a wizard with an Ollivander19.

The Ollivander19 is a wizarding wand with an RFID chip that can be scanned by most tap-and-go payment points. Just remove your wand, wave it on front of the scanner, and voila! Your payment is made, and you only looked slightly silly doing it. Alas, there are only eight of these wands in existence, and the only way to get one is to sign up on Card Cutter’s website and hope you’re one of the lucky few who are chosen.

Of course, reaching into your pocket (or robe) and pulling out a large stick may represent something of a new frontier for store security, but I’m sure they’ll be reasonable if you explain that you are a well-to-do wizard in desperate need of a large coffee and pan au chocolat. Check out a promo video for the Ollivander19 below. [click to continue…]

Artist Alex Cho is a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation, so when he puts his spin on the likes of Game of Thrones and Stranger Things you know it will be something special.

He’s also a fan of Harry Potter and Zootopia, among other things. It’s easy to fall into his art and get caught up. I suggest you try it starting with the examples below. [click to continue…]

Wizard Vs. Jedi [GIF]

Wizard vs. Jedi—this isn’t the first time someone has imagined such a glorious battle. However, the GIF above provides another tantalizing taste. You can check out the full video from Madcap Brothers below (NSFW). [click to continue…]

If you don’t know the Harry Potter spells by heart, this supercut from “My VCR is not DEAD” will be very educational. If you are familiar with the spells but have OCD tendencies, it will be very satisfying. Watch it below. [click to continue…]

Imagine how your life would be different if this Harry Potter room was part of your childhood. It’s certainly better than the alternative for young wizards. I mean, a cupboard under the stairs would probably mess you up (unless it’s something like this).

Awesome parents Kaycee and Casey Daniel went all out with the project, hiring artist Nate Baranowski to get all the details just right. Kaycee writes on Facebook:

Our Harry Potter Nursery is finally complete after several months of planning! I absolutely love the way everything turned out! As I sit here rocking our little man to sleep it’s like I am in Hogwarts!

Is this the first time Eddie Redmayne has been made into a Funko Pop? I think it might be. He looks adorable as Newt Scamander, famous magizoologist and hero of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Newt will be making his debut at SDCC, but you don’t need to worry about not being able to get him. He’ll be available for sale at Barnes and Noble’s around the country sometime after the con.

However, if you are going to SDCC, you can also get your grubby paws on a Pop! Minis three-pack of creatures Harry Potter fans are surely familiar with: The Cornish pixie, Mandrake and Grindylow.
