Review Of Harry Potter Magical Capsules

We therefore couldn’t wait to see the new Harry Potter Magical Capsules series 3 had in store and jumped at the chance to check them out. Read on for what we thought below.

Harry Potter Magical Capsule Series 3 Characters.
Series 3 of the Harry Potter Magical Capsules as with the other series features 10 of the iconic Harry Potter characters to collect.
The collection includes Harry, Hermoine, George, Fred, Tonks, Moody, Dolores, Trelawny and Neville. Plus a mystery character.
Each of the capsules contains one of the characters along with their unique wand, a series of accessories.
How to open the Harry Potter Magical Capsules Series 3?
The series 3 bronze Hogwarts crest capsules open in the same way as the previous collections. Easy to open, the capsule has three numbered flaps, the first two located on the top and the third and largest on the back.
In the first chamber, we found a crest with a scratch reveal showing which Hogwarts house your character belongs to. My daughter scratched these very slowly to build up the anticipation and was delighted when she saw a peek of colour.
The second chamber contained a spell card which when dipped in water revealed a hidden spell. This was very exciting and once revealed we all started to try to guess which character it was referring to.
The third and the largest chamber contained five packages containing the character and four accessories along with the collectors’ map.
On examining the collectors’ map my daughter decided she hoped to open her favourite character Hermonie saying that she couldn’t wait to see what accessories would come with her. My twelve-year-old son hoped for the Weasley Twins thinking they might come with a trick or two.
Which of the Harry Potter Magical Capsule Series three Characters did we open?
We were kindly gifted three of the Harry Potter Magical Capsules.
In the first we opened we discovered from the scratch crest that our character was a Ravenclaw and that their magic spell was ‘IMMOBULUS’, the freezing charm. We were a bit stumped at who the character could be until we opened one of the packages which revealed a crystal ball. We also opened a teacup and saucer, her divination book and a simple wand. Finally, we opened the character pack which as suspected revealed Professor Trelawny.
In the second capsule, the scratch crest revealed the character was from Gryffindor and the spell ‘MISCHIEVE MANAGED’. We instantly suspected our character as either Harry or one of the Weasley Twins. However, after opening an extremely cute Dobby and Buckbeak we knew that it must be Mr Potter himself who came dressed in Muggle clothes with his wand and Mauraders Map.
The third capsule’s scratch crest again revealed the red Gryffindor lion. On seeing this my daughter hoped that Hermonie would be hiding in door three. However, after wetting the spell card which again revealed ‘MISCHIEVE MANAGED’ she knew she had Harry again. She didn’t mind too much though declaring that meant she had two ‘cute’ Dobbys too, although my son has now claimed him as his own.
What We Thought about the Harry Potter Magical Capsules Series Three?
Yet again the Harry Potter Capsules have been a big hit. Both children loved discovering the hidden clues and trying to guess who was inside.
My son loved the new range of characters and that Harry appears in the collection in his muggle clothes. It was great to see the quality and attention to has continued which will delight any Harry Potter fan.
Although my daughter had hoped as usual for Hermonie and my son the Weasley twins they both loved adored the very cute Dobby and Buckbeak – the fact that we have two has saved a lot of arguments. I know where some of their Christmas money will now be going.
The Harry Potter Magical Capsules are great collections and we would highly recommend them
