Act Out Your Favorite Harry Potter Scenes with these Two New Mini Playsets + Collect Die-Cast Replica Wands From the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast Series - Both from JAKKS Pacific (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

My husband recently got my youngest daughter hooked on Harry Potter, after sitting to watch the first Harry Potter movie with her on television. It was raining and the girls couldn't decide on a movie, so my husband put this movie on, and sat with my youngest, as I did a puzzle with my oldest.  Now, its been a long time since I saw the first Harry Potter movie, but I don't remember laughing all the way through. So, when I heard my daughter laughing in the next room, I went out to see if they were still watching the movie, and if so, what gave her the giggles.  They were still watching the movie and were only a half in, but my daughter turned to me to start telling me all about the movie and characters and silly things that she saw.  She couldn't believe she had never seen this movie before, and wanted to see all the remaining ones, as my husband told her there were more. :-)

After my daughter was done watching the movie, I surprised her with a few Harry Potter toys from JAKKS Pacific, that were included in the box they sent over the other day.  Having never seen the movie, I didn't think the girls would be into the toys and was going to let my husband play with them, as he is still a kid at heart, and loves playing with toys like this, or displaying them in his cubicle at work. :-)

My daughter's eyes lit up when she saw the two Harry Potter Die-Cast Wands Series 3 blind mystery box toys.  Like other blind bag toys, this is another one that comes in a series, and is currently offering Series 3 wands to collect.  

Each wand is packed in a blind mystery box after all, the wand chooses the wizard. 

Each of the die-cast replica wands are from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast series.  Kids (and adults) can collect all the different wants from their favorite characters, and then display them in the cool wand stand that comes with each die-cast wand.  

My daughter has so much fun opening the two mystery box toys, She was so excited, and didn't care whose wand she got...she just wanted a wand like Harry and his friends. :-)  

My husband, on the other hand, was quick to grab the box and try and match up the two die-cast replica wands to the characters, as shown on the back of the mystery box.


In addition to the Harry Potter Die-Cast Wands Series 3 blind mystery box toys, we were also sent the Harry Potter™ The Quidditch Playset Mini Playset.  There is also a Ollivander’s Playset that you can purchase and add to The Quidditch Playset - both shown below.  Both of these mini playsets are available at Amazon for only $19.99, and are a must have for fans of Harry Potter.  I couldn't tell who was more excited to see this mini playset, my husband or my youngest daughter, as they both jumped off the couch almost in unison and reached out for it, to check it out further.  My daughter was first to grab the box and read that this playset featured Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, and was quick to point them both out.  

Here is more about each of the Harry Potter mini playsets available from JAKKS Pacific, including the Hogwarts™ Great Hall Mini Playset, which retails for $39.99...

"The Quidditch Pitch Playset includes figures of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy to chase the Golden Snitch.  Open the chest to find the Quaffle and Bludgers."  

"The Ollivander’s Playset includes figures of Harry Potter and Garrick Ollivander, so kids can recreate the moment when Harry first visits the shop in Diagon Alley.  The playset has a lamp to levitate, a sliding ladder, and moving shelves with wand boxes."

  • Recreate your favorite stories from the magical world of Harry Potter with the Hogwarts great Hall mini Playset.  This mini set includes 1. 5 inch-scale mini figures of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Albus Dumbledore. The lights respond - you can press a button to light up the Playset in six unique light patterns, or for added fun use your Wizard training wand (sold separately) to cast spells. You can play the banquet scene and make the food vanish after eating, or make the Snake appear on the table. Your figures can visit the sorting hat as you place it on their heads."


Like I said, I was sent the Quidditch Pitch Playset and my husband and daughter couldn't have been happier.  They   were quick to take the playset out of the box and set it on the table in the living room so that they could look at it up close, and then start playing with it.  

There is a dial on the front of the chest that you spin and it moves Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy around.  

I wish I had the camera going when my daughter spun it first the first time, as she let out a shriek and started to jump around in excitement.  She thought this was so cool, as she had Harry and Draco chase the Golden Snitch.  And, when she was done with this, she opened the box to see the Bludgers and Quaffle.  

If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is definitely a playset you want to own, and then add the Ollivander's Wand Shop and even the Hogwarts Great Hall to the mix, to build your own Harry Potter world.  :-)

My daughter can't wait for this upcoming weekend as my husband has promised to watch the next Harry Potter movie with her.  As she waits, she is having a blast playing with her her die-cast replica wands from the mystery boxes she opened, as well as the Harry Potter Quiddich Pitch mini playset, both from JAKKS Pacific.  You can learn more about these and other fun Harry Potter toys available now by visiting
