The Harry Potter book series

If you haven’t heard about Harry Potter, where have you been hiding?  Harry Potter is a character created by the brilliant writer J.K.Rowling, and first came known to us in 1997. 7 books later and with nearly 500 million copies sold, there must be something pretty special about them.  Each book became a major film production which all broke box office records and the books were translated into 67 different languages. The seven books are titled Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.

So for those who have been in a coma for the past 14 years or have lived under a stone,  the series is about a young wizard named Harry Potter.  Sadly the story begins in his home where he is an orphan and lives with his Aunt and Uncle in a cupboard under their stairs. He is treated pretty badly and life isnt great for the young harry.  His life takes serious change when he finds out his is a wizard and attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn how to use magic.

With two great friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, Harry encounters lots of adventure with some fabulous mythical creatures like dragons, trolls, werewolves, and to name just a few. It isn’t long before Harry learns that is he quite a famous wizard and the is the key to defeating the most powerful dark wizard Lord Voldemort.  He learns that Lord Voldemort was responsible for the death of his parents because they didn’t wasn’t to use their magic for evil. At the time he tried to kill Harry but he failed leaving him with a lightening scar on his forehead.

The first movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone, viewers get completely drawn into the world of wizardry.  The Hogwarts school itself is an amazing spectacle.  The rooms tend to move around as do the stairs including the grand staircase. The pictures on the wall are like little movies as they move and talk to you. To get to the Hogwarts school you need to take the Hogwarts express which is boarded from Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross station in London.

The Harry Potter book series is enjoyed by people of all ages around the world.  There is pretty much every type of merchandise available and even movie location tours.  Also a popular theme park attraction opened up at Universal Orlando in the spring of 2010.

Harry Potter Lego Review 2010: Set 4737 Quidditch Match

Article by Inger Fountain

For the first time in five years Lego has released new Harry Potter sets. Due out in October 2010 a number of stores let their stock out early which enabled eager fans to get their Muggle-hands on these great sets.

The first new set in this 2010 wave is set 4737, entitled Quidditch Match. Lego released a similar set in 2002 as part of their releases for “Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets” movie. Quidditch Practice (Set 4726) is similar but came with only three minifigs and 128 pieces while this latest set has five minifigures and 153 pieces.

As with most licensed sets the main appeal is with the minifigures. All five are new sculpts and set the standard for this latest Lego wave. Quidditch Match comes with two Gryffindor players (Harry Potter and Oliver Wood), two Slytherin players (Draco Malfoy and Marcus Flint) and Madam Hooch.

Draco, Potter and Hooch all come with double sided head pieces – Hooch being the standout. One side has her spooky yellow eyes while on the other side she wears Quidditch goggles. The printing on the torsos are very nice representations of Quidditch uniforms and all come with capes and brooms. Flint and Wood come with beater bats and helmets (unusual as neither was a beater) which is a nice touch.

The set also comes with a Quidditch stand (blue for Hufflepuff) as well as the three hoops of one side’s goal. It would have been nice to have two goals sets but perhaps there will be a later release with Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw (we can only hope!). Other pieces include a chest to hold the snitch, bludgers and quaffles as well as a Quidditch cup. There are also a couple of catapults, presumably to launch the balls in the air.

It’s a cute set and will be very popular because of the figures. Even though there will be no Quidditch in the newest movie out in November, expect this to sell well.

Inger loves stories and loves to write. As a librarian in a previous life she also has an insatiable thirst for general knowledge. You can visit her latest website which takes a look at the best Kids Lighting options including Tinkerbell Lamp and Star Wars Lamp models.
