It’s time to return to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter— though not at Universal theme parks quite yet. In lieu of being able to walk through Hogsmeade Village and Diagon Alley in person right now, Potterheads can thankfully look forward to half a dozen new LEGO building sets that will help them recreate some of their favorite locations and characters from the Harry Potter series of books and movies.
From the Hogwarts Room of Requirement to the wizardry school’s Astronomy Tower, to 4 Privet Drive and the Forbidden Forest, to the Attack on the Burrow and even a brick-build Hedwig the Owl, these new Harry Potter LEGO sets are sure to bring a smile to any young witch or wizard’s face when they become available this summer.
