By the way… Big Happy House earns a commission through the following hand-picked links at no extra cost to you.

It may have been nearly two decades since the first Harry Potter movie was released – and even longer since J.K. Rowling put the first book out into the world – but the franchise’s popularity hasn’t really shown any signs of slowing down.

Both the books and the movies are still deeply embedded in the hearts and minds of adults who grew up in the 2000’s, and these same adults take great pleasure in introducing their own children, nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives to the Wizarding World as soon as they come to an age where they can appreciate it.

Because the franchise remains so popular, it’s no surprise that the sale of Harry Potter-related merchandise is also holding steady. This seems to be particularly true of Harry Potter LEGO sets.

The very first Harry Potter LEGO set was released in 2001, along with the release of the first movie, and dozens more have been released since. The first several sets mostly focused on Hogwarts, but LEGO has since moved into other areas of the Wizarding World, as well as onto other scenes from the films.

There are Harry Potter LEGO sets for children – and adults. There are some that are relatively simple to put together and enjoy, while others, like the full Hogwarts set which includes over 6,000 pieces, are incredibly difficult and a challenge for even the truest LEGO masters.

For this roundup I have reviewed my 15 favorite Harry Potter LEGO sets for kids 6 years and older. If you are in a hurry I put together a Quick View table of my Top 10 building sets below:

Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle

The Ultimate Harry Potter Set for the Ultimate LEGO Master

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle 71043 Castle Model Building Kit With Harry Potter Figures Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and more (6,020 Pieces)
  • Age: 16+
  • Pieces: 6,020
  • Set #: 71043

If you’re really looking to blow a Harry Potter fan’s mind this holiday season – or any time really – you can do it easily with this one particular LEGO set. It includes an incredible 6,020 pieces and is by far the most complicated, challenging and difficult Harry Potter set the LEGO Harry Potter fan in your life is likely to ever put together.

It’s the closest thing to a complete version of Hogwarts that LEGO has ever made, although it still isn’t a 100% complete and accurate version of the school.

This set includes most of what you’ll see on the front of the school, but it also comes with a lot of extra mini and micro figures, scenes and items that aren’t normally seen at Hogwarts, so in many ways, the extras help balance out the small lack of accuracy in the castle itself.

Think of this LEGO set as pretty much like Hogwarts if all the exciting things magically happened at once. For example, there are bricks included to build the Hungarian Horntail that chases Harry across the roof of the castle and lands on one of the turrets, even though that’s not something that would normally be found on the castle.

Hagrid’s hut, the Whomping Willow and the boats that ferry the students across the lake are also included.

Inside the castle, the builder will find the Chamber of Secrets, the great hall, various classrooms and more, all done in exquisite detail to look as authentic as possible. There are minifigures in the forms of the original Hogwarts Heads of Houses, as well some additional creatures such as dementors, the basilisk and Aragog the giant spider.

There are also 27 micro figures included so that he’ll have just about all of the main characters wandering around inside the castle.

Perhaps best of all is that the rotating staircases actually move, which is just one of those super cool little details that makes LEGO so amazing.

What We Like:

Incredibly Detailed
Includes a Ton of “Extra” Stuff
Lots of Cool Mini and Micro Figures
Many Movable Parts for Authenticity
A Real Challenge for Experienced Builders

Our Concerns:

Expensive!!
Too Hard for Casual Builders

Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall

A Smaller Sub-Section of Hogwarts that’s Much Easier to Assemble

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall 75954 Building Kit and Magic Castle Toy, Fantasy Creatures, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy and Hagrid (878 Pieces)
  • Age: 9-14 years
  • Pieces: 878
  • Set #: 75954

For having less than 900 pieces, this set is a little on the expensive side, but it’s also a really great option if you’re looking for a set that’ll let the builder in your life build something that actually resembles Hogwarts but doesn’t require the money or time investment that the complete Hogwarts castle would require.

While this set doesn’t actually allow him to build Hogwarts, of all the buildings in the castle, the great hall is probably the most recognizable one, so once it’s complete, anyone can easily see that it’s supposed to be Hogwarts.

The set also comes with ten minifigures, which is quite a lot for a set this size. Of the figures, Nearly Headless Nick is probably the coolest. He just looks amazing. Professor Quirrell has a dual head that allows him to show his Voldemort face as well, so they’re both pretty great figures.

The kit also comes with buildable animals including Fawke’s, the basilisk, Scabbers and Hedwig. There are also a lot of cool accessories that’ll let your builder ready the great hall for a delicious feast. The Mirror of Erised – complete with changing pictures – is also included.

The set also connects with other Harry Potter sets to allow builders to build a nearly complete Hogwarts castle if they have them all.

What We Like:

The Mirror of Erised Changes Images
Includes ten Minifigures Including Nearly Headless Nick
Professor Quirrell’s Head Changes to Voldemort
Staircase Actually Moves and House Banners Change
Lots of Detail in the Open Back

Our Concerns:

The Basilisk and Fawkes Look Weird
Somewhat Expensive

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets Hogwarts Whomping Willow

Fun and Challenging Set for Children Aged 8-14

LEGO Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets Hogwarts Whomping Willow 75953 Magic Toys Building Kit, Prisoner of Azkaban, Hedwig, Hermoine Granger and Severus Snape (753 Pieces)
  • Age: 8-14 years
  • Pieces: 63
  • Set #: 75953

This 753-piece kit is a fairly standard size LEGO set that recreates a nice variety of things that can be found at Hogwarts. While this portion of the castle isn’t meant to be any particular place like the great hall or the clock tower, it does feature some nice elements of Hogwarts.

From the back, your favorite builder will be able to see Snape’s office, the potions classroom, a dormitory and the owlery.

The set will also allow him to build a model of the Whomping Willow that actually spins and covers the hidden entrance to the shrieking shack, as well as the Weasley’s flying car, whose trunk and doors open and close.

There are six minifigures included in this set – Harry, Ron, Hermione, Snape, Filch and Seamus. Hedwig is also included, but Filch’s cat, Mrs. Norris, doesn’t make an appearance.

What We Like:

Open Back Side of the Castle Features Many Authentic-Looking Miniature Classrooms
Whomping Willow Actually Moves and Has “Secret Passage”
Car Trunk and Doors Open and Close
Includes Several Small “Extras” – Lantern, Suitcases, Animal Figures, etc.
Looks great combined with the Hogwarts Great Wall building kit (see above)

Our Concerns:

Somewhat Expensive
Not a Ton of Detail on the Front of the Castle
No Mrs. Norris Figure Included with Filch!
Check Price On Amazon

This set looks great when combined with the Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit (see above). Here’s a video that show the 2 kits together, and it looks absolutely EPIC!

Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower

Another Semi-Challenging Section of Hogwarts with a Multitude of Minifigures

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower 75948 Build and Play Tower Set with Harry Potter Minifigures, Popular Harry Potter Gift and Playset with Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and more (922 Pieces)
  • Age: 9+
  • Pieces: 922
  • Set #: 75948

While this kit doesn’t contain anywhere close to 6,020 pieces and isn’t nearly as challenging as the complete Hogwarts castle, the clock tower is still a nice kit that can present a good challenge to most mid-level builders.

It features 922 pieces and includes eight minifigures all dressed in their holiday best for the Yule Ball. There’s even a cool dance feature that spins the figures around and makes them appear to actually be dancing.

While the hands on the clock don’t actually move, they do look real, and they can be hand-set to whatever time the builder wants.

The rooms on the backside of the castle section include the defense against the dark arts classroom, the clock tower, the entrance hall, Dumbledore’s office, the prefect’s bathroom and the hospital wing.

There are also some additional Yule Ball decorations that are quite lovely, along with the Goblet of Fire, the pensieve in Dumbledore’s office, the mermaid stained glass window and lots of cool stuff in the classrooms.

What We Like:

Tons of Authentic Details in Open Back Section
Clock Hands Can Be Set at Will
Dance Floor Features a “Dance” Function
Winter Details Look Lovely
Label #5

Our Concerns:

Fairly Expensive
Very Challenging for Younger Builders

Harry Potter Hogwarts Express

For the Model Train Enthusiast Who Also Loves LEGO Sets

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 75955 Toy Train Building Set includes Model Train and Harry Potter Minifigures Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley (801 Pieces)
  • Age: 8-14 years
  • Pieces: 801
  • Set #: 75955

Despite its relatively steep price, this kit is a favorite of many Harry Potter enthusiasts because it looks so realistic and actually moves like a real train should (although there are no tracks included, which is a bit of a letdown).

In addition to the three main characters – Ron, Hermione and Harry – the kit also comes with Remus Lupin, the trolley witch and the dementor minifigures. Scabbers is also along for the ride.

Platform 9¾ has a lot of tiny details that help it look very authentic. There’s a Sirius Black wanted poster on the wall, a newspaper stand with the Daily Prophet newspapers inside it, a clock, staircases, lanterns and more.

The train, too, features a lot of great additions, including a chocolate frog that can be found on the trolley witch’s cart.

There’s only one passenger carriage, which is a little disappointing, but it does have four seats, and the roof and side panels are removable. Best of all, the “gateway” between platforms nine and ten actually flips and “disappears” so the heroes can get to the hidden magical platform.

What We Like:

Actually Moves and Includes Movable Doors
Looks Incredible and Realistic
Lots of Attention to Detail on the Platform
Can Be Used with Other LEGO Movable/Automobile/Train Sets

Our Concerns:

Picture on Box is Misleading – Headlights Don’t Light Up
Doesn’t Include Tracks

Harry Potter Quidditch Match Building Set

A Colorful Creation that’s A Little Easier for Younger Builders Aged 7-14

LEGO 75956 Harry Potter Quidditch Match Building Set, Gryffindor Slytherin Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff Towers, Harry Potter Toy Gifts
  • Age: 7-14 years
  • Pieces: 500
  • Set #: 75956

This is a nice set for younger builders who need something a little easier to put together, and it’s also fairly reasonably priced. The bright colors are a contrast to many of the Harry Potter sets, which generally favor muted and/or natural colors.

This scene helps your favorite builder recreate the iconic quidditch match between Gryffindor and Slytherin, and it includes six minifigures, half of which are lesser-known characters that can’t be found with any other set.

The downside to this set is that there’s an overall lack of totality; this set seems more like you’re standing at one end of the quidditch field, staring down to the other side.

There’s only one set of goals included instead of the two that are required for a real quidditch match, and while the stands for each of the four houses are represented, they’re small and don’t feature any bleachers or fans to sit in them.

It’s more like the outline of a quidditch field than an actual quidditch field, and some of the fun is lost along the way because of these missing elements.

Still, for the overall price, it’s not a bad deal at all. There are also a lot of hidden features, with each house tower having some kind of fun play function attached.

The clever setup of the goal posts also allows your builder to move the keeper around to effectively block each goal post.

What We Like:

Lots of Interactive Parts + Keeper Can Move to Block Goals
Includes Lesser-Known Minifigures
Each Tower Has “Hidden” Functions
Relatively Affordable
Can Be Assembled by Younger Builders

Our Concerns:

Only Includes One Team’s Goals
Lack of Completeness – No Bleachers/Fans
No Lee Jordan! (You Can’t Have Quidditch without Announcer Lee Jordan!)
Check Price On Amazon

Harry Potter Diagon Alley

Another Complicated Set for the Older Teen or Adult Who Loves a Challenge

LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley 75978
  • Age: 16+
  • Pieces: 5,544
  • Set #: 75978

In terms of detail, complexity and number of pieces, this is the only LEGO Harry Potter set that even comes close to rivaling the majesty of the complete Hogwarts castle. It falls a tiny bit short of including 6,000 pieces – 5,544 – but it takes just as much hard work and effort to build as the castle play set does.

The included bricks can be used to build four separate buildings that can be assembled in several different ways.

These four buildings are home to six distinct shops found on Diagon Alley:

  • Ollivander’s Wand Shop
  • Quality Quidditch Supplies
  • Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor
  • Scribbulus Writing Implements
  • Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
  • Flourish & Blotts

As with most LEGO sets, the back of the set is where all the action is. The backs include the “insides” of the shops, and the details and little “extras” on the insides are absolutely amazing.

Unlike a lot of other LEGO sets, though, the fronts of the buildings are also pretty intricate and detailed, which makes them just as beautiful from the front as they are from the back.

There are a whopping 14 minifigures with this set, including some rarely seen figures like Lucius Malfoy, Gilderoy Lockhart, Florean Fortescue, Ollivander and Mrs. Weasley.

The set looks quite authentic, right down to the figure on the front of the Weasley’s shop; it lifts its hat just like it does in the film.

The set can also be combined with other LEGO Modular Building sets to make it even larger and more authentic looking. This set is not for young or inexperienced builders and is recommended for ages 16 and up.

What We Like:

Over 5,000 Pieces!!
Brightly Colored, Incredibly Detailed Buildings Look Amazing
Includes 14 Minifigures
Dubbed the “Most Detailed HP Set to Date”
The Open Backs Are Gorgeous and Entirely Authentic

Our Concerns:

Expensive!!
Too Complicated for Most Casual and/or Inexperienced Builders

Harry Potter Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak’s Rescue

An Endearing Scene, Relatively Easy to Complete for Ages 8+

LEGO Harry Potter Hagrid's Hut: Buckbeak's Rescue 75947 Toy Hut Building Set from The Prisoner of Azkaban Features Buckbeak The Hippogriff Figure (496 Pieces)
  • Age: 8+
  • Pieces: 496
  • Set #: 75947

One of the most heartbreaking moments from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban comes when the executioner kills the sweet and innocent hippogriff, Buckbeak. Fans of the book and the movie are later thrilled when Hermione uses her time-turner to go back in time with Harry to save both him and Sirius from certain doom.

This 496-piece set has everything a Harry Potter fan will need to reenact either of those scenes. Buckbeak is especially nice; both his head and his wings can move, and one of the characters can be attached to his back for an exciting ride.

With the exception of Dumbledore, all of the relevant characters are included – Buckbeak, Hagrid, the Minister of Magic, the executioner, Harry, Ron and Hermione – and there are enough bricks to build an accurate, miniature version of Hagrid’s hut.

There’s even a pumpkin patch in which your builder can chain up Buckbeak outside. The doors on the cabin actually open, and the inside of the hut is filled with all kinds of strange and exciting goodies reflective of the kinds of things the real Hagrid would keep.

There’s even a dragon egg being hatched in a fireplace that actually lights up thanks to a battery-powered light brick.

It’s a great simple-to-mid-level set for amateur or somewhat experienced builders, but some people do feel the price is too high in relation to the small size of the finished product.

What We Like:

Open Back Reveals Lots/ of Cool Stuff
Buckbeak Has an Amazing Design and Can Hold Figures
Features a Light-Up Fireplace
Good for Many Ages/Skill Levels

Our Concerns:

Requires Battery (Not Included)
A Little Pricey for Less than 500 Pieces

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Knight Bus

For the 8+-Year-Old Builder Who Prefers Creations that Move

LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Knight Bus 75957 Building Kit (403 Pieces)
  • Age: 8+
  • Pieces: 402
  • Set #: 75957

Nearly every child – and most of the adults! – who watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban wished they could ride the Knight Bus. With its three levels, its rolling beds and its ability to shrink into a paper-thin version of itself, it just looks like it would be so much fun to take a ride in it.

Sadly, you can’t give anyone her very own trip on the Knight Bus, but if you have a LEGO builder in your life, you can give her the next best thing – the ability to build her own.

With this LEGO set, the Harry Potter fanatic in your life can build her very own three-tiered Knight Bus, complete with the rolling beds and Dre Head – the shrunken head – hanging from the rear view mirror.

The doors of the bus open, and the top lifts off. Harry comes with Hedwig and his suitcases for authenticity. Other minifigures include Ernie Prang and Stan Shunpike.

The only real downside to the Knight Bus is that it’s much smaller than it looks like it would be from the pictures on the box. It’s a little over seven inches tall and only about three inches wide.

LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Knight Bus 75957 Building Kit (403 Pieces)

But it is still one of the cooler LEGO Harry Potter sets!

Looks Great from the Outside

Door Opens and Top Lifts Off

Harry Potter Forbidden Forest: Umbridge’s Encounter

For The 8+-Year-Old Builder Who Literally Wants a Giant Challenge

LEGO Harry Potter Forbidden Forest: Umbridge’s Encounter 75967 Magical Forbidden Forest Toy from Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix, New 2020 (253 Pieces)
  • Age: 8+
  • Pieces: 253
  • Set #: 75967

This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite LEGO Harry Potter sets of all time. The price is reasonable; there’s a great build age range (ages 8 and up), and even though there are only 253 pieces, the scene they build is so much fun.

Building Grawp is fantastic, and he looks so adorable, and the tree has these cool hidden compartments that hold all of Grawp’s “secret stash.” LEGO even provided some little mushroom-like bricks to make the tree look more authentic.

There aren’t a ton of minifigures with this one, but the two centaurs that are included are so cool! Harry, Ron and Hermione are also included, and so is Professor Umbridge with a dual face so that she can go from smirking to screaming with only the twist of a head.

This set may not have a lot of pieces, but it packs a whole lot of fun in the few pieces it has.

What We Like:

Reasonably Priced
Grawp Can Move, Stand and Sit
Tree Opens to Reveal Hidden Surprises
Includes Cool Centaur Figures

Harry Potter Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts

One of the Most Lovely Harry Potter Sets Available

LEGO Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts 75958 Building Kit (430 Pieces)
  • Age: 8+
  • Pieces: 430
  • Set #: 75958

Of all the LEGO Harry Potter sets, this one is probably the most gorgeous. For less than 500 pieces, it’s a little on the expensive side, but the beauty of the carriage after it’s been assembled is almost worth the price.

There are four minifigures included – Madame Maxine, Fleur and Gabrielle come with the Beauxbaton carriage, and Hagrid holds the lanterns to guide them in – and the two flying horses’ heads and wings move realistically.

Once the carriage lands, the top opens up, and the carriage converts into a bedroom and tea room. It’s almost like Harry Potter, LEGO and Transformers met to make this set.

The drawers in the dresser actually pull out to hold the included letters, and there are all kinds of neat little accessories to really set the scene. Overall, it’s a pretty nice set.

What We Like:

Absolutely gorgeous!

Harry Potter Hedwig

A Medium-to-Hard Set for Building a Hedwig Replica

LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig 75979
  • Age: 10+
  • Pieces: 630
  • Set #: 75979

This set is unlike any other one on our list of LEGO Harry Potter sets. Instead of building a specific scene or location from Harry Potter, this set allows your favorite builder to build a large replica of Hedwig. It’s designed as more of a “show piece” or a set-up-and-display piece, and it isn’t really meant to be played with like the other sets.

It does come with an included crank that propels Hedwig’s wings up and down after she’s built, though, and that’s a really cool addition.

While building Hedwig is not as difficult as building the Diagon Alley or the complete Hogwarts castle sets, it’s still a little harder than some of the other sets on our list. She presents a good challenge for mid-level builders.

The only real problem with this set is that it’s often out-of-stock or on back order, and if you can find it, it’s often on places like Amazon or eBay, where the sellers are selling it at grossly inflated prices. Unless you’re in dire need of this set right away, we’d suggest you sign up for the “notify me when it’s in stock” option on the LEGO store and wait for it to come in there.

What We Like:

Wings Actually “Fly” Up and Down
Looks Very Authentic
A Lovely “Show Piece” for Collectors

Often Out-of-Stock, Super Expensive and Hard to Find

Harry Potter Hogwarts Room of Requirement

For the Gift-Giver on a Budget Buying for a Younger Builder

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Room of Requirement 75966 Dumbledore's Army Gift Idea from Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix, New 2020 (193 Pieces)
  • Age: 7+
  • Pieces: 193
  • Set #: 75966

This small set isn’t super complicated or intricate, but it is affordable, and it’s simple enough to assemble that kids as young as seven – and maybe a little younger – can put it together with ease.

There are three included minifigures – Harry, Hermione and Luna Lovegood – and a fake death eater on which the kids can practice the spells. The included patronuses are quite lovely and look very realistic, and there are power shooters that fit into the characters’ wands and shoot out at the death eater.

As for the room itself, there’s a hidden wall that covers the Room of Requirement just like in the books and the movies, and the room only “appears” when someone really has a need for it. (The wall slides away to reveal the door.)

There’s also a “push feature” that’ll send all of Professor Umbridge’s proclamations flying off the wall at once, almost like magic! The set is a little lacking in detail, but the affordable price helps balance that out a little bit.

What We Like:

Very Affordable for Those on a Budget
Includes Beautiful Patronus Figures
Room “Hidden” by Plain Wall that Slides Open
Includes Push Feature that “Destroys” Umbridge’s Proclamations

Harry Potter 4 Privet Drive

The Most Mundane Set for the Muggles

LEGO Harry Potter 4 Privet Drive 75968; Fun Children’s Building Toy for Kids Who Love Harry Potter Movies, Collectible Playsets, Role-Playing Games and Dollhouse Sets, New 2020 (797 Pieces)
  • Age: 8+
  • Pieces: 797
  • Set #: 75968

This set may be full of muggles – the minifigures include Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and Dudley along with Harry, Ron and Dobby – but it’s quite magical in its loveliness, and it also features quite a bit of detail.

Many LEGO sets don’t have a lot of detail on the fronts of them, saving the intricate details for the backs where the “inside” of the buildings are shown, but Number 4 Privet Drive is almost as pretty on the front as it is in the back.

In addition to all the great details on the front, the back has even more going on. It’s the Dursley’s two-story house with the living room and staircase on the bottom and Harry’s room, complete with his bed, table, chair and family picture, upstairs.

On the side of the house, there’s a hidden room that opens onto the cupboard under the stairs where Harry once stayed. The house is also full of slots where Hogwarts letters can be pushed in to aggravate the Dursleys, and the set even comes with enough bricks to make the Weasley’s flying car as well.

All-in-all, this little set definitely gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

What We Like:

Relatively Simple Construction – Great for Inexperienced Builders
Unlike Other Sets, the Front is Just as Detailed as the Open Back
Lots of Little Spots for Flying Letters to Enter the House
A “Hidden” Cupboard Under the Stairs that Opens
Includes the Weasley’s Flying Car

Harry Potter Freeing Dobby

The Easiest Kit for the Youngest Builders (6-12)

LEGO Harry Potter Freeing Dobby 4736
  • Age: 6-12 years
  • Pieces: 73
  • Set #: 4736

Because this set is one of the earlier ones that was released – sometime around 2010 – it’s a little harder to find than many others on the list. Furthermore, if you can find it, it’s likely to be very expensive, especially considering it only includes 73 pieces in the entire kit.

Even so, it’s one of the easiest Harry Potter kits to assemble, and it’s one of the only LEGO Harry Potter kits that’s suitable for children as young as six years old. So if you’re looking for a quality Harry Potter set for a young builder, the higher price may be worth it to you.

Just be aware that this is a very small set. (We point this out multiple times because the image on Amazon can be a bit misleading. It does not come in a large, full-size LEGO box.)

In theme, the kit represents a scene near the end of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry tricks Lucius Malfoy into tossing Dobby, his poor, mistreated house elf, what’s left of the mostly destroyed diary of Tom Riddle. Inside the book is one of Harry’s dirty socks.

Because the sock – an article of clothing – was given directly to Dobby by his master, even though it was done unintentionally, Dobby is freed from his servitude. Dobby promptly uses that freedom to blast Malfoy up and away from Harry.

This cool action is also replicated in the set thanks to a “push” feature that blasts Malfoy just like in the movie.

What We Like:

Easy Assembly Means it Can Be Used by Builders as Young as Six
Includes a Dobby Minifigure!!!
Has a Cool “Push” Feature to Blast Bad Guys
Lots of Cute Details – Spider, Broomstick, etc.
Both Harry and Mr. Malfoy Have “Reversible/Dual” Heads

Less than 100 Pieces Included
