Review of Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak
We are big fans of everything Harry Potter and so were over the moon to be asked to review the new Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak.
The Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak is a replica from the Harry Potter films and using green screen technology to bring amazing magical effects.
What's In The Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak Box
The Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak comes in a cardboard box (with no plastic) which was very easy to open. Inside we found a small instruction manual, plastic phone stand and the cloak.
The Cloak measures at 139.7cm (around 4ft 6) and is double sided with one side having a velvet feel silver and grey pattern and the other side having a satin feel in green.
Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak App
Before you can play with the cloak you need to down the Wow! Stuff App from either the Apple App Store or from Google Play for Android users. The app comes free to download with the cloak and there is unique code on the instruction manual in the box but you do have to create an account.
How to Use the Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak ?
To use the cloak, first open open the app on your phone and follow the instructions . Once you get the 'Set Your Scene' page pop your phone on the stand and place it it infront of your background scene. You need to make your phone is on a stable surface and won't move as even a slight wobble will stop the app from working.
You then need to set the background scene, which shouldn't have anything moving in it, so any people in the scene will need to stay completely still. It also works much better with a busy background rather than a plain wall. When your happy with your scene, press the button to start the invisibilty mode.
The magic will then begin. When the grey side of the cloak is on the outside it will look like a normal cloak. However when you spin it around to show the green side you will see the invisibilty effect with whatever the cloak is covering disappearing. There is a bit of a knack to spinning the cloak around in a swift motion, and adults may have duck slightly to stop feet showing, however once mastered it looks great.
The app allows you to capture the magic with the choice of photograph or through a video, with the option of to a set a time until the video starts or the picture taken and to set the video duration.
Once we had mastered the invisilibility trick, we couldn't resist seeing what other magic we could perform and had lots of fun doing so. We performed the Wingardium Leviosa spell making a pumpkin float; levitated (by hiding a chair under the cloak); and even managed a polyjuice potion style spell (by having my son in the scene when set it and then covering the space he was set with the cloak.
What we thought about The Wow! Stuff Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak
We all loved the playing with the Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak and were in complete awe the first time we saw my son disappear. The Wow! Stuff app is really easy to use and although swapping the cloak to green took a bit of practice, once we had it mastered the effect was amazing and the outtakes were very funny.
The kids loved trying out different ways to use the cloak and once they had the hang of it they were soon acting out scenes from the Harry Potter films. Now no-one can walk through our door without the cloak coming and the kids showing off their new party trick.
