If you have a little elementary knowledge about Harry Potter merchandise, you can’t go wrong. So here’re the most important things you need to know about the magical world of Harry Potter:
1. Hogwarts and the four houses.
Hogwarts is the best wizarding school in the world for wizards and witches. Harry Potter and his friends spend their teenage years at Hogwarts learning how to do magic. It’s more like high school than University.
But unlike most schools, Hogwarts is a boarding school. So because the students are together all the time, friends become like family. That makes the four houses important—the students in your house are who you eat with, attend class with, and hang out with. There are four houses: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Gryffindor students are known for their bravery, Ravenclaw their cleverness, Hufflepuff their loyalty, and Slytherin their ambition. Students are selected for each house by the sorting hat, which you can find in our Harry Potter shop Australia.
Harry Potter and his best-friends Ron and Hermione are in Gryffindor. That’s why Gryffindor is most kid’s favourite house. They dream of being in Gryffindor. So if you’re choosing a Harry Potter gift but you don’t know their favourite house, your best bet is to go with Gryffindor.
People love to dress up as different characters from Hogwarts, which makes Harry Potter costumes such a popular gift, whether it’s a Hogwarts hat, beanie, wand, scarf, or broomstick.
Quidditch is the most popular sport in the wizarding world. Like soccer, they have a world-cup, local leagues in different regions, and kids grow up idolising their favourite player. In Quidditch, players ride broomsticks and score points. In the books and movies, Harry Potter plays Quidditch for his House in the school cup. This makes Quidditch sets and broomsticks such as the Nimbus 2000 popular gifts.
3. Magical beasts.
The animals in Harry Potter books and movies make alligators, lions and sharks seem tame by comparison. But by far the most famous and useful magical beast is the owl because they carry letters and parcels for witches and wizards. Harry Potter has an owl named Hedwig, which is why it features in so much Harry Potter merchandise, including our own Australian Harry Potter shop.
4. Harry & his friends.
Harry Potter makes many enemies on his adventures, but he has even more friends. His most famous friends are Ron and Hermione, fellow students from the Gryffindor house. Hermione is a clever and tenacious witch who many young girls admire. Ron is a fun-loving wizard who struggles to overcome many challenges. This is one reason Gryffindor Harry Potter merchandise is so popular—kids can use it to dress up as Hermione, Ron, or Harry.
