Expecto Patronum! Hop on the Hogwarts Express and take a trip to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a place of magic and mystery. Or take a walk down Diagon Alley and stop by Ollivanders to pick out a wand or …. allow it to pick you. And don't forget to drop in to Madam Malkin’s shop for your very own Hogwarts robe. If it isn't already obvious, I am quite the Harry Potter fan, and have been to Wizarding World more than once. I’ve been a Harry Potter fan since the first movie of the series hit theaters many years ago. So, I was excited to learn that Mattel has these awesome Harry Potter dolls at Walmart. These dolls are perfect and a must-have collectable for every Harry Potter fan. Collect them all for safe keeping or use them to bring some of your favorite story lines to life. Cast spells to ward of demons or use the Wingardium Leviosa spell to make objects levitate!

Each Harry Potter doll comes true to its character with details added to the dolls. From Harry’s glasses and scar to Hermione’s wavy, frizzy hair, no detail is missed. Each doll comes with their signature Hogwarts uniform and signature wand.
