A Young Harry Potter (Costume Review)

How cute does he look?

A few months ago we were sent the Wonderbook: Book of Spells to review and ever since The Boy has been obsessed with spell-casting. We bought him a magician's wand for Christmas and he brandishes this in our direction at various points during the day, but it's one of those black and white jobbies that is used by a magician with black hat and tails. His preference is for incantations rather than conjuring.

I know! Three and a half, who'd have thought he'd be so fussy when it comes to magic?!

"Expelliarmus!" "Wingardium Nevinosa!" (he can't say it properly) and "Accio daddy!" are just a few of his favourite spells, along with "ComeToMeus" (thank you Grandad!). He has no idea who Harry Potter is but he adores wizarding.

Therefore when I was offered the chance to review a costume from Fancy Dress Ball I had no hesitation in choosing this Gryffindor cloak, wand and set of glasses for The Boy. While he may not have much of a clue at the moment as to the wizarding significance, he thinks he's marvellous and a proper wizard now; the wand is much better and he likes looking like daddy with the glasses. This Harry Potter get-up is perfect and it's one of many costumes available under the Fancy Dress Ball’s world book day costume section. Don’t forget to mark your calendar as World Book Day is on the 7th March 2013.

I was sent this product for the purpose of this review, my opinion is honest and unbiased.

    Oh my goodness, that is so cute! Were you not tempted to draw on a lightning bolt with eyeliner? I would have . I'm so pleased that The Boy is fussy about his magic. You can't just wave any old wand you know, it has to choose you!
