Tesco Is Selling A Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak
Tesco is now selling the invisibility cloak from Harry Potter.
Yep, if you’re a massive Potterhead, this is definitely the one for you, though we can’t guarantee it will actually make you disappear. Sorry.
The official Warner Bros piece of merch would usually set you back a hefty £30, but the price has been slashed and it’s now a snip at just £15.
According to the description for the product, which is designed for children aged six and up and hit the shelves last year, the robe is a ‘replica from the movies’.
It says: “[This] official Warner Bros. licensed Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak with magical app effects [lets you] save photos or video to your smartphone or tablet’s camera roll for instant recall.
“The cloak features movie-accurate detailing with green silk style interior in reference to the movie prop on display at the Warner Bros Studio Tour London [and] the Wow! Stuff app [is] included free and authenticated with your purchase, [which] allows you to recreate iconic scenes from the Harry Potter films or make new ones of your own.
“View, photograph, or film yourself through the app on your smartphone or tablet (not included) and save the images and videos to your camera roll.
“Your family and friends won’t believe their eyes.”
The cloak is also available at Selfridges and Smyths Toys.
Despite the last film hitting cinemas in 2011, the hysteria surrounding the franchise has never gone away.
Rare First Edition Harry Potter Book Sold For £60,000 At Auction
And that was evident earlier this month when a first edition Harry Potter book which a dad had used to teach his kids English, sold at auction for an eye-watering £60,000 ($77,000).
The rare copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone had been valued at £30,000 ($39,000) but doubled its money when it went under the hammer.
It is only one of 50 hardback editions of the novel that were ever printed.
Speaking about the incredible sale, auctioneer Jim Spencer described the sale price, which shot up to £75,000 ($97,000) when the premium was added on, as ‘astonishing’.
Mr Spencer, who has worked on the sale of four first editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, revealed it was the highest price he had ever seen for one of them.
He said: “I’m absolutely thrilled the book achieved such an outstanding price for our vendor.
“I hoped it would make £50,000 but to see it sail past that to reach £60,000 was astonishing.”
The book was sold at Hansons’ Staffordshire Library Auction.
