The Top 7 Things From Harry Potter You Wish Were Real

If only these things existed in real life, life would be so much better.

1. Accio!


If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you´re probably guilty of having made a desperate attempt at one time or another to find your keys (or other possessions) by shouting ‘Accio!’. Whether you can’t find the remote, or you just can’t be asked to get up from the sofa to grab your phone from the other side of the room, Accio would definitely come in handy for many of us.

2. Butterbeer


Does a more delicious drink even exist? Harry Potter fans worldwide would probably agree that Butterbeer is simply the most delicious beverage ever, even though no one has ever tried it. Thankfully, J.K. Rowling’s descriptions of the drink are so vivid that we are all certain we know what it tastes like.

4. Time turners


This one will ring a bell for university students everywhere; how often have you pulled an all-nighter trying to finish that essay, hoping against hope that you could turn back time? Well, you could, ifonlytheharrypotterworldreallyexistedanditwasntalltheproductofsomeonesimaginationdammit

5. Felix Felicis


Whether you have a job interview or you’re giving a speech and you’re terrified of public speaking, do not worry; Felix will make sure it goes damn well. You might want to squeeze in a few other things that day, like a date with your secret crush or that talk with your boss that you should have had a long time ago. You never know (but you do). Trust Felix.

6. Obliviate


On the other hand, if that meeting with your crush goes oh so terribly wrong, it’s nice to know there’s an alternative. For all those ‘I feel like crawling into a hole and dying’ moments, Obliviate is a foolproof spell to make everyone forget that you made a fool of yourself. Just make sure you don’t go too far, you don’t want your crush to forget who you are (or who they are, for that matter).

7. Apparition


No more being late to work, missing the last train home or travelling for 14 hours to get to the other side of the world. With apparition, you will never have to hurt your foot again from kicking the tube train, nor will you have to ever again pretend you care about the air hostess’ security speech. Just imagine the possibilities.
