It's Back to Hogwarts Time!
The 1st of September is a momentous day in the wizarding world calendar: this is the day the Hogwarts students return for a new term. Catch the Hogwarts Express, while the first years discover the castle for the first time. Though this year may look a bit different than in the past, the time has arrived to pack your trunk, ready your school supplies and prepare to go Back to Hogwarts - virtually! You can enjoy their collection of features and activities to help make your celebrations as special as can be. It's all very exciting for Harry Potter fans.
We're all huge Harry Potter fans in this house. We've read all the books and watched all the movies, several times over. We have lots of the toys, wands and merchandise and love playing Magical make believe, so when we heard about going Back to Hogwarts, we just had to join in as we'll be going back to school ourselves next week. It's all very exciting, and a little scary too if we're honest but that's a whole different story for another time.
This week we've been checking out the Back to Hogwarts, Back to School range from Asda which is all so awesome! There's the cute Chibi print lunch bag featuring Harry, Hermione and Ron which also has a matching Water Bottle. They're both really cool, Ryan loves them!
And, then there's the gorgeous Harry Potter Shield logo backpacks which are available in all four houses. We have the Gryffindor backpack of course as that's our house team of choice.
Ryan loves the leather straps and the funky red colouring of his new bag. He's so excited and can't wait to show it off to all of his classmates next week. It is a really beautiful bag!
And last but not least, there's The Harry Potter Stationery Set which includes everything you need to get Back To Hogwarts: a pen, pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener and ruler – all with classic Harry Potter decoration. Nothing beats the feeling of getting brand new stationery.
Inside our Magic Box of treats we found this awesome LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig which Ryan is looking forward to building soon. Harry Potter Gryffindor Robes for both adults and children which you can see Ryan wearing quite happily in the first picture. Also inside our box was the super exciting, Harry Potter Magic Capsules from YuMe Toys and Kap Toys.
You need to open the Hogwarts inspired crest and find the packages to discover the magic. Use colour coded, heat and water to reveal the clues you'll need to unlock the surprise within. There's 10 characters to collect in Series 1, including 1 rare character and 1 ultra rare. Each capsule contains, 1 Hogwarts Character, 1 Fantastic Beast pets, 1 wands and a surprise accessories. Ryan loves surprise element toys so he loved this. Mixing harry Potter with an unboxing style toy makes for a huge hit with my kids, they absolutely love them.

Ryan is super excited about going back to school next week just like all those brand new students heading Back To Hogwarts. He's going to wear his new bag, fll his lunchbox and water bottle, pack his pencil case full of treats and bound into the school, bursting with excitement. Like every new or returning student this September, it's an exciting time of year.
