    3. A magic wand, because how do you plan on defeating the forces of evil without a good wand?

    Promising review: “I absolutely love it. It is amazing and I could go on and on for about 10 hours about how good it is. It is totally awesome. It's sturdy and it's an exact replica. You can change how bright it is with a button. It's so easy to use and it's so fun. It makes you feel like a wizard and all Harry Potter fans should have this.
