We LOVE the Harry Potter books in the KiddyCharts household. We haven’t quite progressed to the film stage yet with the kids, but the adults have been enjoying them. There are so many wonderful tie-ins with the books in the toy industry and beyond. We’ve picked some of the best Harry Potter gifts for kids, so you don’t have to trawl the internet yourself.
If you have seen the film, and loved it, and even if you haven’t – you can’t beat listening to the audio book and having Eddie Redmayne read the story to you. This is just as good as the Harry Potter Stephen Fry audio books, so why not pop this in the kids stocking this Christmas too?

Something to get a little bit before Christmas is this spectacular Advent Calendar from Funko. It really is just stunning – with a character a day, and the box designed to build a scene, this is beyond perfect for any Harry Potter fans out there. Yes, the price point is high, but we think it is worth it.

It’s the Great Hall from Harry Potter; not sure we need to say more, other than it’s got moving stairs, you get to duel with Draco Malfoy, and you can discover the changing faces in the Mirror of Erised too. Harry, Ron and Hermione need help to fight the Basilisk and Lord Voldemort too.
