There is something for everyone in the world of Harry Potter toys. Whether you have a child just discovering the Chamber of Secrets, a teenager awaiting the release of Fantastic Beasts 3, or if you are personally invested in what happens at Hogwarts, we’ve uncovered the top merch to bring the stories and characters to life.
The books, now the best-selling series in history, have inspired countless toys and games to choose from. To save you time, we waved Dumbledore’s wand to come up with the most enchanted options for the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts fans in your life.
Best Harry Potter Toys
One of the coolest things we saw at Toy Fair was this Harry Potter invisibility cloak. You download the app, throw on the cloak, and get ready to disappear.
The set up takes less than a minute, and kids can create different backdrop and save shots of themselves disappearing to later show their friends.
Another clutch Harry Potter toy is, of course, the flying Snitch. It not only flies but it allows the player to customize its flight pattern from random directional flight to near vertical flight by adjusting the angles of the wings.
This is essentially Quidditch practice for aspiring players. Thanks to its proximity sensor technology, the Snitch will hover over the player’s hand and move in random directions in the air.
What a merry idea: Harry Potter fans can count down to Christmas and score a toy from the Harry Potter movies every day for 24 days.
A must for Christmas, this Harry Potter Lego holiday calendar lets kids combine toys to recreate scenes ranging from Christmas dinner in the Great Hall to the arrival of the Hogwarts Express.
Sick of being a Muggle? Than have your kid follow a step-by-step guide to build his or her own magic wand, while learning about coding.
By following simple, clear steps, kids build their own Harry Potter wand, which responds to their movements.
Kids can help gentle giant Hagrid by building his hut and then saving Buckbeak from the executioner by hiding him in Hagrid’s pumpkin patch.
Kids eight and older will go bonkers for the button-operated light brick that makes Hagrid’s fire actually blaze in his hut, and the fact that Buckbeak the Hippogriff’s wings move, as does his chain. The level of detail here is breathtaking.
No self-respecting Harry Potter aficionado can go without this wand, which is badass and actually lights up.
Wave the 14 inch wand and the light goes on and wave it again, and the light turns off. That’s enough to say expelliarmus.
Grab the Golden Snitch and go! The compact design makes it easy for travel and provides endless entertainment for kids and adults. Recommended for children over three years old.
Even before they’re old enough for the books, you can introduce your child to Harry Potter’s favorite sport of Quidditch. Let his or her imagination soar like Harry’s Nimbus 2000 with this Golden Snitch-inspired fidget spinner.
Where would Harry Potter be without his trusty owl? Hedwig's head rotates 180 degrees and she makes 12 owl sounds.
Hedwig responds when kids talk or clap their hands. She has a dozen sounds in her repertoire. And she’s great for kids four and up.
These plush replicas of Dobby (Harry Potter film franchise) and Niffler (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) are perfect bedtime companions for children still not ready to cuddle up with a book. Ideal for children three and up.
We know Niffler may be an easier sell for those who don’t know Dobby’s story yet. But to know Dobby is to love him – and your child (eventually) will.
Get your hands on this gorgeous recreation of the most famous wizard's wand, which comes with a collector's box and measures just over 15 inches in length.
Hogwarts wouldn’t have been the same without its headmaster, Professor Dumbledore, and no toy collection would be complete without his all-powerful wand. It’s a recreation of the wand used in used in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. It’s hand-painted and made from resin.
Once they start reading Harry Potter, it’s only a matter of time until they’ll want to be him. With this Gryffindor House robe, kids of all ages can dress up and become a part of Harry’s wizarding world.
The robe is great for anyone who loves Harry as it comes in all sizes. You get a fancy ankle length black fleece costume robe with burgundy lining, and it’s embroidered Gryffindor House crest.
After choosing which Harry Potter character they want to be, players try to solve the mystery of a student’s disappearance from Hogwarts. The very cool game board features wheels, which move the rooms and reveal secret passages. Great for kids nine and up.
Even if you’re not a fan, get a Clue and enjoy solving a Hogwarts-inspired whodunit.
Most of the Harry Potter Lego sets out there today are complex, and meant for older kids who can focus for long periods of time. This set, on the other hand, is fairly simple and is meant for kids seven and older.
Kids can build Aragog’s Lair in the Forbidden Forest, along with an actual spider. The set includes Harry and Ron mini-figures.
Fans of Fantastic Beasts will love this foldable LEGO replica of Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures. The nearly 700-piece set includes Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, Tina Goldstein and Queenie Goldstein figures, just for starters. For boys and girls between the ages of eight and 14.
Before the world of Harry Potter, there was Newt Scamander, his magical creatures, and their adventures. Once your kids meet the challenge of constructing this epic replica, they can enjoy reenacting some of their favorite scenes.
Yes, it's expensive, but this thing is appropriately epic. Featuring classrooms, towers, Whomping Willow, Hagrid’s hut and five buildable boats, this collectible is for boys and girls aged 16+ and can be built together with all other original LEGO construction toys and LEGO bricks for creative play.
Looking to spend some quality time with your teen? Build the iconic Hogwarts Castle replica from the series and spend hours – possibly days – putting together the 6020 piece set with your son or daughter.
