Posted by Megs

The Harry Potter Fan Club has announced new items as part of their Pin Seeking collection. The first, available now for £59.95 / $80.00, is the Shops of the Wizarding World pin set. It features 6 pins of different shops found in the wizarding world – Honeydukes, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Madam Malkin’s, Eeylops Owl Emporium, Quality Quidditch Supplies and Ollivanders.

The second is an adorable Niffler pin featuring gold chains and “jewels” the niffler is stealing. This niffler pin will be available for Harry Potter Fan Club Gold Members on 31st March for £18.00.

The Harry Potter Fan Club is unveiling brand new individual pins and box sets from its Pin Seeking Collection each month throughout 2021. The latest arrivals are already in high demand following the much-anticipated debut collection which launched in August 2020.

The Pin Seeking enamel badges, courtesy of the official Fan Club, are full of detail and stories, with each one celebrating the wizarding world in its own special way.  The collection is currently a huge hit with fans, who have raced to get their hands on the limited-edition designs, and Hogwarts House Sets – with some releases selling out in hours.

This year, the pin seeking adventure continues with the launch of the Shops of the Wizarding World. Featuring 6 beautiful individual shop front pins, the set includes Honeydukes, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Madam Malkin’s, Eeylops Owl Emporium, Quality Quidditch Supplies and Ollivanders.  Each pin comes with intricate detail of the shop front, including magical products in the window – fans might even spot a little broom outside Quality Quidditch Supplies!

This is only the second 6-pin set to be released on general sale following the launch of the First Edition Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin sets last year. And for those looking for creative ways to display their pins, magnets in the walls of each box allow you to connect multiple sets together to build a magical display. You can also unlock extra surprises with the Harry Potter Fan Club app when you scan the Enchanted Key on each pin set.

To celebrate Magical Mischief month, which sees the Wizarding World encouraging fans to embrace their sillier side throughout the month of March, a very special pin is sneaking its way into the Collection – a Niffler! Arguably the most mischievous creature of them all and a Fantastic Beasts favourite, fans can celebrate the character that loves something shiny as he’s immortalised in pin form. He’ll be immersed in gorgeous gold details and jewels to make him an extra special purchase!

Fans can also look forward to regular releases of never-before-seen designs, themed around some of the most iconic characters and events from the Harry Potter series. Some pins will be released in limited numbers, so avid pin seekers will need to hurry before they vanish quicker than you can say Evanesco.

“We are so pleased to announce these exciting additions to the Harry Potter Fan Club Pin Seeking collection. The new releases give our fans the chance to continue growing their collections and get hold of some rare and special designs. As, before, these collectible pins are on limited runs so, in the words of Mad-Eye Moody, have “constant vigilance” when they come on sale!” Tom Greene, Chief Operating Officer at Wizarding World Digital. 

Fans can still get their hands on the highly coveted House Sets – a perfect collector’s item for Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs or Slytherins to show off their House pride. The six pins in each set feature iconic emblems including crest, scarf and banner of the Hogwarts House, as well as an exclusive pin that can’t be purchased anywhere else.

Wizarding World Launches “Deck The Great Hall” Virtual Experience
Posted by Megs

Wizarding World has launched a new interactive experience today – Deck The Great Hall to help everyone around the world into the festive spirit. Though we can’t actually spend Christmas at Hogwarts this is the next best thing! Head to the Great Hall to send Christmas messages by floating candle and decorate the Hogwarts Christmas tree in your House colors.

The festive season has finally arrived – which means it is time to embrace the joy of Christmas in the Wizarding World. To celebrate, Wizarding World is introducing Deck The Great Hall – an interactive digital experience providing fans with a fun new way to connect with one another.

Deck The Great Hall is an interactive digital experience inviting fans from all over the world to sprinkle some joy and decorate the iconic hall at Hogwarts, but this is decorating with a difference… the magic comes to life through special messages.

Fans will be able to send their greetings to friends, family, and the wider community via magical floating candles. Each candle features its own message and once sent; it will soar up to the Great Hall’s ceiling to cast a warm glow across the room. The light from the candles will intensify as more messages are sent.

Every candle is numbered, so participants can seek out specific messages or simply browse through other fans’ well-wishes. In addition to lighting candles, fans can celebrate their house-pride by selecting coloured baubles to adorn twinkling house-themed Christmas trees.

Recording artist, life-long Harry Potter fan and proud Gryffindor, Liam Payne, opened the experience today by sending the very first message. He commented: “I’ve always loved Harry Potter and we always make sure we find time to watch each of the films every Christmas. Every time I see those floating candles filling the Great Hall, it makes me wish I could do that in my house so I was really excited to hear that I could send one virtually. 

I think one of the most important parts of Christmas is sending love to the people you care most about and Deck The Great Hall is such an ace way to do this. I hope lots of fans join in and I can’t wait to read everyone’s messages!”

Eager to inspire others to join him, Liam is challenging his fans to solve Harry Potter themed clues and work out which number candle features his message to them. He has also surprised TikTok sensation and fellow fan Abby Roberts by sending her a personalised candle message, encouraging her to join in.

Surprise messages from celebrity fans will be added throughout the month, so be sure to check back and read the latest additions, you might just find a note from a familiar face or two…

Wizards, witches and muggles who are excited to submit their own festive messages, and see what the wider community have contributed can Deck The Great Hall by visiting greathall.wizardingworld.com – the virtual Great Hall doors are now open!
