I thought this was so cool and after reading all the good reviews on it I decided to get it for my daughters 8th birthday. She’s a big Harry Potter fan and she loves it! I agree with all the positive reviews!
My son got this as a holiday gift and boy has he been stuck to it. There has been more reading, more decoding going on throughout the holiday than ever before! He truly loves it and sleeps with the wand and references the book all the time. The decoding is totally fun. One of the best gifts he received and we're big HP fans! There are some spoilers since we haven't finished the entire series (just an FYI) -- he still loves it!
