LEGO just made this year's Christmas a whole lot more special for Potterheads by releasing a 'Harry Potter' advent calendar with mini figurines of your favorite characters.
As far as we Potterheads are concerned, the ultimate dream is, of course, waking up to a Hogwarts acceptance letter in our mailbox. While some of us spend our lifetimes waiting for the letter and visiting Universal Studios Harry Potter theme parks, the coveted opportunity to actually learn magic at Hogwarts may never come.
However, LEGO recently released something really special to feed our obsession with the wizarding world. The Danish toy production company's latest offering is a 'Harry Potter Advent Calendar' that has just blown our minds away.
Featuring a whopping 305 pieces, the LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar is the perfect Christmas gift for the Potterhead in your life (even if it is yourself). The calendar is quite elaborate with a number of mini-figures of famous characters, iconic Hogwarts memorabilia, and landmarks.
According to the product description on the Target website, "each of the 24 doors open to reveal a surprise toy every day from 1-24 December, inspiring imaginative play for Harry Potter fans and ensuring a magical build-up to Christmas!"
You'll receive a total of 7 mini figurines including Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Albus Dumbledore, Professor Flitwick, Hogwarts Architect-plus a Hedwig figure, and a micro Hogwarts Express train. Fans can count down to Christmas with the Harry Potter Advent Calendar, receiving 1 LEGO toy from the franchise every day.
"Celebrate Christmas in the Wizarding World with the magical LEGO Harry Potter 75964 Advent Calendar. Behind each of the 24 doors is a different LEGO Harry Potter toy or figure. As the big day gets closer, kids can recreate happy Hogwarts holiday scenes with favorite characters-including Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger-and conjure up magical play through Christmas and beyond!
By combining the various toys, kids can recreate familiar holiday scenes from the Harry Potter movies-from Christmas dinner in the Great Hall to the arrival of the Hogwarts Express. The 24 Harry Potter gifts found within this special holiday calendar can be built together with all other original LEGO sets and LEGO bricks for creative building," reads the full product description.
Recommended for fans aged 7 and up, the LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar is priced at $39.99. The product can also be purchased directly from the LEGO website, which also features a Star Wars Advent Calendar. The similarly priced calendar comes with 280 pieces, including six mini-figures and four droid Lego figures.
The product features 13 mini collectibles, including a First Order Star Destroyer, Kylo Ren's Shuttle, Stormtrooper blaster, Poe's X-wing, Resistance Troop Transporter, Ahch-To Island, Quadjumper, Death Star Cannon, Corporate Alliance Tank Droid, MTT, escape pod, Hoth cannon, and a Twin-Pod Cloud Car.
Also included in the set is a First Order Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, exclusive Luke Skywalker with Ahch-To Island outfit, Death Star Gunner, Rebel Trooper and a Cloud Car Pilot, plus Mouse Droid, Battle Droid, and Mynock LEGO figures. As a fan of both the Harry Potter and Star Wars franchise, I'm quite tempted to get both and maybe even stage a little crossover play of my own.
