We’ve been noticing quite a number of LEGO Harry Potter events going on early this month and last, but they’ve been notably happening in other branded retailers carrying LEGO products, from Target to Barnes & Noble. What about LEGO itself? Wonder no more now that LEGO Stores – at least in the UK – are cooking up just that. Much like the Barnes & Noble thing that went on during the first weekend of August, this is a Build & Take event, only it’s lasting from the about middle of the month to early September. The subject for building is one of Harry Potter’s most iconic and ubiquitous items: your very own custom LEGO Harry Potter wand.
Thus far, the only LEGO Store to have set a date for holding this wand-building event is the one in Watford, Herefordshire, UK. During Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, from 2 to 4 PM, the store will invite children ages 6 to 14 to participate in making a Harry Potter wand they can later take home.
For the LEGO Store Watford, they’ll be running the event starting next on August 13 up until the first Sunday next month (September 2). Other LEGO Stores in the UK and the world are following suit, like with London’s Leicester Square store.
While we wait for further news, remember that there are a lot of new Wizarding World LEGO Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts sets already released or just about to. In addition, the film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is coming this November.
