Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Goodies

fantastic-beastsThe children were absolutely thrilled to be invited along to the press screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and have been raving about the movie ever since. The movie features a new character Newt and his suitcase full of fantastic beasts. Its a brilliant story featuring 1920’s New York and a cast of amazing characters and is genuinely a delight for Harry Potter fans. For me, its strength lies in the fact that this is a far more adult film than the original movies, I enjoyed it loads.

To celebrate the movie we were also sent an amazing box of goodies! The children had a bit of  a punch up over them as it was a such a treat and they love the Harry Potter franchise. The box had a brilliant selection of things all of which I thought would make the most amazing Christmas gifts (sometimes as a blogger you just wished you had opened a box in private!).

We particularly liked the Panini Sticker Album, my eldest enjoys collecting stickers and at the moment we are in a bit of a football sticker lull so this filled the gap nicely. Stickers work great as rewards so this is perfect. He also loved the official movie book, as a reluctant reader i’m keen to get him to read anything and this appeals to him so its a win all situation

Fifi grabbed the posters and the colouring book from Scholastic- she’s a big fan of colouring books. Colouring books are so good for children, helping them with hand eye co-ordination, fine motor skills and also providing a peaceful pastime!

I must admit I grabbed the Harry Potter decals for myself. I didn’t even know this sort of thing existed but i’m hoping that my laptop now has extra magic!

If you’re looking for some last minute Christmas gifts for the Harry Potter fan in your life then these are perfect. You’ll easily find all these items on the high street.
