About this deal

It looks like Harry has zipped from the Hogwarts Express straight into the Great Hall for the Start of Term Feast! That seems like a much more logical end to this journey-to-Hogwarts theme, particularly considering that all the robes lacked house-markings. Inside the box you will find a collection of 24 jewels and accessories including bracelets, pens, earrings, necklaces, among others!

Chocolate Frog Card tiles are meant to be random, so I’m really interested to know if everyone got the same card – mine being Seraphina Picquery, who you might remember from the Fantastic Beasts 2 movie, as the President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America.

You get a lovely Christmas Tree, with a great mix of dark green and green elements, with the stars providing some nice contrast. Today we get the present and birthday cake from Hagrid to Harry, when he delivers his acceptance letter after the family goes into hiding. Harry is flummoxed as he’s completely new to the Wizarding World, and he needs the guidance of the Weasley family to cross the barrier into Platform 9¾ – making a quick run into the pillar. At least the Big Trio now has competition, and Harry has his enemy to torment him for the remainder of his schooling life at Hogwarts.

It should include a perch for Hedwig (which we got yesterday – or the other owl I suggested for 1 December).VERDICT: Prisoner of Azkaban fans need to grab Buckbeak to fly and get this super set full of fantastic minifigures. I took out the lighter brown 1×2 plates next to benches, and I added another layer of gold studs to the table legs (luckily, the table had one extra and we had 3 more extras from our other Lego advents sitting here, so I didn’t even have to go hunt some down. I think by now we can assume the kids are on the Hogwarts Express, they’ve met each other and are speeding towards Hogwarts! Compared with the calendar, only with one set of wands – but still to come with both chocolate frog and wizard card. Day 1 starts off slow and easy, with a Privet Drive sign, along with an envelope resting on the sign.

He comes with a golden key (2 in fact, as there’s a spare on the sprue), and is dressed quite handsomely in a dark red blazer. The characters and models are well designed and everything has been very well thought out from the box, which double as a backdrop for the scene you create, all the way to the figures! Includes Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Dudley Dursley and Griphook minifigures, plus buildable models such as Gringotts’ gold vault. While the models and builds have been more miss than hit this year, I do appreciate the chronological story-telling with each day’s windows, tracing Harry’s journey from 4 Privet Drive to the Leaky Cauldron, and now, as he takes his first few steps into Diagon Alley. On the other side of the counter is a small platform… suitable for a short minifigure to be placed there – maybe a clue on what we’ll get in Day 11?LEGO® components are dropped, heated, crushed, twisted and analysed to make sure they meet rigorous global safety standards. I guess this places Harry before he boards the Hogwarts Express, and he hasn’t caught the train yet! This calendar included two cookies (12 Dec), four tiles with the Hogwarts house crests (20 Dec), two envelopes (22 Dec) and as a special treat on 24 December: A 2×3 tile printed as Hogwarts acceptance letter, as well as 1×2 tiles with Wingardium Leviosa spell and a chocolate bar print.

Once students reach their third year at Hogwarts, they are allowed to spend some time in the nearby village of Hogsmeade at the weekend. LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar: 305 pieces, 413 gram, 6 minifigures (or 7 if including the Hogwarts Architect statue). It’s great to get such a substantial build for Day 21, and it looks like we’re near the end of Harry’s journey to Hogwarts.Not too bad of a minifigure, but I do wish we had a brand new outfit or torso for Harry that was exclusive to the Advent Calendar, but at the same time, I am still quite happy that we get this version of Harry Potter, so that those who missed out on Diagon Alley get a chance at this minifigure, which has an outfit from one of the most iconic scenes of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone. LEGO® building kits satisfy strict industry quality standards to ensure they are consistent, compatible and connect and pull apart perfectly every time - and it's been that way since 1958.
