Anyone have a spare handful of Floo Powder? You might remember me mentioning before that my son and I are huge Harry Potter fans. Poor thing has been going through withdrawal since the last film came out last summer. My 15 year old son's entire childhood was all about Hogwarts and the boy wizard, and being the magic loving mom that I am I completely indulged him of course.
Part of my son's HUGE collection. He made the Daily Prophet prop a few years ago for one of our parties.
Well Harry is in the news again this week. The Warner Bros. London Studio tour officially opens this Saturday. All the sets, props, and costumes will be available for the public to view for the first time.
I remember there being some unhappy fans across the pond when Universal opened the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction in Orlando a few years ago. And although it's great for us over on this side, Hogwarts castle in sunny Florida seemed strange to me. But now the UK fans are getting the real thing! Although we have yet to make it to the park I think I would take the Leavesden tour over Orlando any day.
This brings back so many warm memories of midnight book releases, movie openings, hunting for Harry collectibles and our own yearly birthday feast for Harry. I miss doing all those things with my little wizard so it's great when we can share memories and remember a little bit of the magic again.
