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.

Starting this September, you’ll have the chance to fight the Battle Of Hogwarts with a new cooperative deck-building game called Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle (how convenient!).

Two to four players can play either Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville and use their own personal deck to fight to build more powerful decks that feature Wizarding World characters, spells, and items in an attempt to take down Voldemort.

I wanna be Neville. [click to continue…]

Fancy holding your next corporate meeting inside Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Not gonna happen. But businesses operating in Tokyo have access to the next best thing.

Japanese IT firm Zeeboon have established two “Idea Castles” in Akihabara that can be rented for meetings. One, called the “Royal Palace Magic School”, clearly draws inspiration from Harry Potter, complete with a stone-walled classroom decorated with wall-mounted swords and hanging owl cages.

Harry Potter fan Meredith McCardle had a brilliant idea for decorating a wall in her home.

Did I mention that she’s an author? Because that fact begins to put this project into perspective.

Using a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, McCardle traced the first page of Harry Potter on her wall then painted each letter with a high quality paint so she wouldn’t have to do a second coat.

Simple. Genius. I love everything about this idea.

The cast of the new Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play are getting new wands, and J.K. Rowling was kind enough to give fans a sneak peek.

No word yet on if these will be available for sale down the line, but I’m pretty sure we’ll see fans making their own if nothing else.

Head after the break to see the rough sketch.

Daniel Radcliffe (wizard, wrestling fan, Google Plus user) shared this delightful image of himself with Matthew Lewis at a WWF match just days before the first Harry Potter movie started filming. He did it as a plug for Lewis in Season 2 of Happy Valley on Netflix, so you can add “good friend” to the list of attributes listed above.

The caption reads:

Found this and thought I’d share it with you all. Two days before the start of HP1 our producer, David Heyman, took Matthew Lewis, Rupert Grint and me (in my super-cool lime green zip-top!) to WWF INSURRECTION in Sheffield (this was prior to it becoming WWE). Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the whole group. Judging by the sign behind us I think William Regal was making his entrance! And judging by our faces we weren’t quite brave enough to boo him.
It was very good night! Go watch the brilliant Mr. Lewis in season 2 of Happy Valley on Netflix! Happy Friday everyone! – Dan
