If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’d certainly know that LEGO has come out with several building sets of his iconic movies for different age groups. The latest from LEGO is the 753-piece Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets Hogwarts Whomping Willow. This building kit is meant for 8 to 14-year-olds.
Here’s what you get to do…
- Mini-figures: The LEGO set includes mini-figures of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Seamus Finnigan, Argus Finch, and Severus Snape. It also has Hedwig, the owl.
- Whomping Willow: Remember the scary Whomping Willow? Yes, the very valuable, but the violent tree that was planted to disguise the opening of a secret passage leading from the Hogwarts grounds to the Shrieking Shack. LEGO offers you a chance to build this tree with its mighty trunk and branches that can swivel, much like in the movie. What’s more, you can make it’s spinning branches catch the magical flying Ford Anglia toy car!
- Castle: Yes, you get to build the same castle you saw in the movie, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ with all its accouterments. This incredible three-story magical castle model with a gate is by no means a small replica, but measures over 10 inches (27 centimeters) in height, 13 inches (35 centimeters) in width and 3 inches (8 centimeters) in depth.
- Flying Ford Anglia: In the movie, the light blue 105E Deluxe model magic car from Ford was enchanted by Arthur Weasley to fly. With an Invisibility Booster installed in the car, it could even be made invisible. It was modified to comfortably accommodate eight people, six trunks, two owls and a rat. LEGO offers all the pieces to assemble this car and even provides you a chance to crash it into the Whomping Willow, just like in the movie!
- Other accessories: The LEGO set also includes other accessories, such as potions, wands and the like.
Gift this fascinating LEGO set to your kids and see them screaming in sheer delight, as they go about recreating the exciting scenes from the Harry Potter saga.
