Whether you’re shopping for the perfect birthday or holiday gift, or you just want to stock your child’s toy box with a few items representative of your own obsession with the franchise, there are so many fantastic
Harry Potter toys to choose from. Potterheads and their muggle offspring can let their imaginations run wild with the best Harry Potter toys on the market.
I will be the first to admit that my almost-9-year-old had quite a few
Harry Potter toys before he ever showed any interest in the movies or was old enough to read the books. Did this perhaps inspire his adorable crush on Hermione and love of all things owl-related? I can’t say for sure, but the fan in me thinks that the baby toys shaped like Hedwig might have played more than just a small role in encouraging his own fandom.
From games that test your knowledge of the books and films to action figures that let you re-create your favorite scenes, there’s a toy on this list perfect for every fan regardless of their age. I mean, who doesn’t want to cast a spell or two with a toy wand? (Even if it isn’t
actually going to spawn a Patronus because it’s made from plastic instead of enchanted wood.) Read on to see which Harry Potter toys can make your home a more magical place to play.

A Plush Harry
For younger kids, having a
plush to play with can help introduce them to all of the things you know and love about the franchise. Just look how cute plush Harry is — the scar, the glasses, and his robe! While I can’t guarantee that this will help them love the books and movies as much as you do when they get older, it definitely won’t hurt to try. Harry Potter toy

A LEGO Set For The Family
While your kids will most definitely need plenty of help putting together this massive 6,020-piece

A Kid-Sized Nimbus 2000
Your kids can zip and zoom around the house on their very own
replica version of Harry’s Nimbus 2000. The broomstick measures about 36 inches in length and it is made from sturdy foam, but it also makes real sounds when swung through the air.
Collectible Figures In Surprise Packs
My kids love blind bags and similarly-packaged toys that they can’t see inside of. These
from YuMe are incredibly fun. The packaging has hints about which characters are inside that can be revealed with heat or water so that your kids can try to guess which figure they’ve scored before they rip it open to find one of 10 characters inside. Harry Potter Magic Capsules

I know that this
interactive Hedwig toy is meant for kids ages 4 and up, but I would not hesitate to buy one for myself because it is just that cool. The toy literally responds to your voice with 12 unique sounds and his head actually moves and rotates a full 180 degrees.
