1. Hogwarts Express

The best Harry Potter Lego set

Item number: 75955 | Pieces: 801 | Minifigures: 5 | Ages: 8+

Iconic setting
Relatively affordable
Plenty of Easter eggs
Could do with more minifigures

Outside of the castle itself, few locations say 'Harry Potter' more than the Hogwarts Express. It's downright iconic, and this kit does an amazing job shrinking that train down into brick form.

Containing more than a few nods to the series (specifically The Prisoner of Azkaban), this is one of Lego's cooler adaptations. That's because you're not just getting the steam engine itself - a miniature Platform 9¾ can be found here as well, including the magic wall you run through to reach the train. When combined with minifigures for Harry, Ron, Hermione, Professor Lupin, a Dementor, and the Trolley Witch, this set is packed with nostalgia.

2. Hogwarts Moment: Charms Class

The best cheap Harry Potter Lego set

Item number: 76385 | Pieces: 256 | Minifigures: 3 | Ages: 8+

Inexpensive
Unusual 'book' design
Won't take up loads of space
No Hermione for "Wingardium Leviosaaaah" moments

The best Harry Potter merchandise can be pricey, and the Lego range is no different. With that in mind, this kit is well worth a look - despite being very cheap, it still manages to embody the magic of the series with a clever, transforming build.

That's because there are two scenes at play here; while one depicts the boy wizard's Charms classroom (with mini-figs of Harry himself, Cho Chang, and Professor Flitwick from the first film), it can also fold up into a Charms book featuring the Hogwarts school crest.

More importantly, this allows for all sorts of hidden depths. On top of classrooms and the Chamber of Secrets, it also comes with Hagrid's Hut, the Whomping Willow, and the little row-boats that first-year Hogwarts students arrive in. 'Magnificent' doesn't quite cut it.

1. Harry Potter Wand (in Ollivanders Box)

The best Harry Potter wand overall

Size: 15in (38cm) | Ages: 14+

Amazing detail
1-1 replica
Collector's box
Not a toy

It may be predictable to top the list with Harry's wand, but this Noble Collection replica makes doing so a necessity. The company's collectibles are fantastic at the best of times, but this one is particularly detailed.

That's because it's a 1-1 version of the prop actor Daniel Radcliffe used during the film series, complete with weathering and a distinctive wood-effect handle. Most deals offer it in a beautiful Ollivanders box too (the kind Harry was given when he originally bought the wand in Diagon Alley), so you've got something handsome to display it in right away.

2. Wizard Training Wand

The best Harry Potter toy wand

Size: 15in (38cm) | Ages: 8+

Interactive
Recognizes movement
Includes 11 spells
Needs AAA batteries

I defy you to find someone who doesn't pretend to cast a spell when they pick up a wand, and that's why this electronic toy is amongst the best Harry Potter merchandise. Featuring sound effects, lights, and designs that range from Dumbledore to Hermione, it's sure to be a hit with younger fans of the Wizarding World.

Thanks to the inclusion of 11 spells and the fact that it recognises movement, this is also the ultimate toy wand; besides two modes for standalone play, there are three settings to use while duelling a friend who also has a Training Wand. That means the user can live out their wizard battle daydreams whenever they like.

The best Harry Potter wand for collectors

Size: 15.7in (40cm) | Ages: 14+

Gorgeous replica
Loads of detail
Comes in a stately box
Can be hard to find

The Elder Wand - otherwise known as Professor Dumbledore's wand - is one of the most recognizable props from Harry Potter. It's straight-up iconic, so this 1-1 replica is a must-have if you're a collector (but be warned, it can be a little hard to find these days and has been replaced by a Gellert Grindlewald version).

As well as exceptional detail that's hand-painted, the Elder Wand also comes with a luxurious Ollivanders display box. This is complete with velvet-feel material and a purple decorative ribbon, so it'll look really quite fancy on your shelf.
