I got five things related to Harry Potter for Christmas. Which is more than I expected to be honest. My wishlist is full of it, but usually, people don’t get that for me. Maybe they don’t know what I have and want to avoid double up on anything.
Four of the items was a gift from one of my best friends. She knows me so well. Cookbook, Ravenclaw notebook, and Funkos. It’s great!
The fifth item came from my parents and made me cry actual tears of joy.
The Lego Set, and not one of those little ones, but THE Lego Set. I had no words when I opened this gift. I could not wrap my mind around the fact that I now was the owner of this. Someone pinch my arm!? My brother and I have plans for building this while watching Harry Potter movies sometime in the near future.
Last weekend I went on a shopping spree and picked up a ‘few’ things I’ve had my eyes on for a little while. And some things I have not seen before, but could simply not walk past.
I don’t have any of the Funko PoP!Vinyl figures, and that is a plan for the future. But this little cute keychain have now the honor of being the first, even though it is a bit smaller than the rest.
A must! The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay. And it is so pretty! So many little details that pulls it all together to a piece of magic.
Picked up another book about the Fantastic Beast movie. It has behind the scenes and little replicas of props used in the movie. I also bought the badge pack with five badges. Perfect to put on my bag or jacket. For the next film, I will probably wear all five of them.
Next is this Pop-up Gallery. It has five scenes from the wizarding world, both Harry Potter and Newt Scamander is to be found here. You can put one scene up for display like on the left, or you can keep it in your bookshelf and just browse through from time to time.
Last thing is this lunch box. Sadly it is not magical, and your lunch will not magically appear when opened, but it is still cool. It is a little big to put in my backpack every morning, but every now and then, or for a picnic in the sun.
What you guys think of my purchases? Do you have any of those items yourself?
Even on holiday my mind will not take a break from Harry Potter. I spent quite some time in book stores, browsing their Harry Potter display and be frustrated with myself for never learning french. They had things I have never seen here in Norway, and I was tempted to buy a lot of things. Fortunate for my bank balance I only bought one book – namely the philosopher’s stone, but in french.
This book is now my third book in the collection of Harry Potter in foreign languages. Not counting my books in english.
I also went to Primark (as you do if you find yourself in a country where they have Primark), and I search every rack and shelf for Harry Potter clothing, and spent two thirds of my time in the fitting room trying them all on. I had a bit of bad luck as many of the items I wanted were sold out in my size. But at least I got myself a jersey and socks.
I know I’m not a Gryffindor, but loved the jersey anyway. And I think it’s supposed to be Harry’s quidditch jersey, and not like a Gryffindor jersey.
