Merchoid Announces 2020 Film & TV Christmas Sweaters including Harry Potter
Posted by Megs

Dreaming of a white Christmas at Hogwarts or looking for the perfect sweater to match your dinosaur Christmas tree? Merchoid has got you covered with their 2020 range of Christmas sweaters inspired (and officially licensed!) by the big and small screen!

Merchoid have sent over one of their new Hogwarts house themed sweaters to keep us cozy this holiday season! They have slightly updated their house designs and have two options per house. All the names are super punny and cute! We chose the “Ten Gifts To Gryffindor Knitted Christmas Sweater” and just love all the little details! The top features cute owls holding letters blanketed by snow. Gryffindor Lions and the Sorting Hat finish off the design at the bottom.

As was the case last year, the sweater is so soft compared with other “ugly Christmas sweaters.” Many other companies sacrifice comfort for intricate design and that is not the case here. Megan is wearing a size small and generally wears a small or medium, so err on the side of sizing down if you’re between sizes.

If house pride isn’t your thing, pick up a Weasley letter sweater or the “I’d Rather Stay at Hogwarts Christmas Sweater” we featured last year! There are also plenty of geeky options for non-Potter fans. Choose from Marvel or Disney, DC or gaming!

NOTE: If you are outside the UK shipping will be a bit slow, they estimate 10-15 days so be sure to order quickly if you want to wear them this year!

The Merchoid elves have been hard at work to ensure that you’ll look your festive best this holiday season, by bringing the franchises you love to life via the realm of cosy knitwear! Let us be there for you with our Friends inspired designs, or maybe you prefer saving the world alongside your fellow superheroes? We’ve got a sweater for that too! So whether you’re looking for Disney dreams in a galaxy far, far away, or designs to remind everyone who the King or Queen of the North is on Earth C-137, we’ve got the right sweater for you for the upcoming festivities.

LEGO Announces Interactive Harry Potter Diagon Alley Set
Posted by Megs

We have some exciting news on this eve of Back to Hogwarts day! LEGO announced a brand new set, created with help from James & Oliver Phelps, releasing tomorrow! The beautiful Diagon Alley LEGO set has an interactive element to it with the help of a mobile site and buildable QR codes.

The set is a little over a yard wide when lined up and comes with 14 minifigures of characters found in Diagon Alley throughout the series! There are interactive elements such as a hidden lever to trigger movement of the arm/hat of the statue in Weasley’s shop.

Marcos Bessa, LEGO Harry Potter Design Lead commented: “I love how faithful the final design is to the architectural details in the film. You can barely see some of these buildings zooming past your screen, but we tracked down different photographs from the sets – some of them from nearly 20 years ago – to make sure everything is spot on. Diagon Alley is the biggest set I’ve designed to-date and I am really proud of how it has come together.”

This set is for ages 16+, contains 5,544 pieces and retails for $399.99. It will be available for purchase tomorrow, September 1st in LEGO stores and their official website!
