Harry Potter Lego Sets - so much to choose from!

To date, Harry Potter has become the best-selling book series ever, with sales of over 450 million copies.

To tie-in with the success of the book, there have been a host of related merchandising opportunities, from the enormously successful Harry Potter films, DVDs, video games and a series of lego sets that began production in 2001 through to 2007, and were put on hold until 2010, when more Harry Potter lego sets were released. Gamers can play the Harry Potter Lego games on consoles or download the app to play Harry Potter Lego on their iPhone or iPad.

To tie in with the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone, 14 lego sets were released. Some of these lego sets are very complex with over 1000 pieces and are quite expensive to buy. Young children may need some help assembling the kits, but they come in separate bags to stop the from being too complicated and clear assembly instructions. The value of the toy comes not just in the building process, but afterwards, the assembled kit looks stylish on display and can be used to re-live the magic of the books. They have fantastic attention to detail and authenticity, with miniature lego food in the Dining Hall, moving staircases, secret compartments, mini treasure chests, mini figures from the films and revolving bookcases. The sets relating to the first film are numbered 4701, 4702, 4704, 4705, 4706, 4707, 4708, 4709, 4711, 4712, 4714, 4721, 4722, 4723.

The Harry Potter lego sets are fun and educational for children, helping with concentration, co-ordination, fine motor-skills and following a set of instructions. The lego sets also allow fantastic scope for imaginative role play. The boxes are clearly labeled with suitable age ranges, so you can make sure that the set you are buying is appropriate.

For the second film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, ten sets were released, which were designed to be combined with sets from the first film. Theses sets are numbered as follows: 4719, 4720, 4726, 4727, 4728, 4729, 4730, 4731, 4733, 4735.

For the third film, there were eleven sets released, numbered as follows:

4750, 4751, 4752, 4753, 4754, 4755, 4756, 4757, 4758, 10132.

For the fourth film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, four sets were released: 4762, 4766, 4767, 4768.

Only one set was released for the Order of the Phoenix film: 5378.

After a halt in production, more sets were released from 2010, to tie in with various films, including: 4736, 4737, 4738, 4840, 4841, 4842, 10217, 4865, 4866, 4867, 30110, 3011, 40028,
