Review and Giveaway: Win the “HONEYDUKES™” Sweet Shop from The Bradford Exchange Harry Potter Village Collection!!
The Harry Potter Illuminated Village Collection from The Bradford Exchange caught my eye last Christmas season, as it will be a perfect addition to all my other Christmas decorations. Collecting the various Hogsmeade Village buildings and seeing them light up and sparkle not only sounds magical but, when you see, it is magical!
The second set in the series, “HONEYDUKES™” Sweet Shop with a free “RON WEASLEY™” is beautifully hand painted with glittery snow on the rooftop, around the base, on the light-up tree, and at the base of Ron’s feet. The large tree attached to the side sparkles with lights, and the windows of the shop glow. There are windows on all sides for a beautiful display, no matter what direction you’re admiring the collection from. Ron Weasley is the perfect character to accompany the Honeydukes shop, as he reminds me of all the fun, sweet treats I’m going to be baking come Christmastime. Yum! The “RON WEASLEY™” figurine is undoubtedly “Ron,” with his own glittery snow-covered base. Even though he is oversized in comparison to the Honeydukes shop, he is well done.
There are three pieces that easily fit into place, the two chimneys and the Honeydukes sign. On the bottom of the Honeydukes shop is a battery compartment, which needs a tiny little screwdriver or something similar to open it, as well as three AAA batteries. Otherwise, it is easily assembled and the batteries put in place to enjoy a cozy, lit “HONEYDUKES™” Sweet Shop.
The Harry Potter Illuminated Village Collection from The Bradford Exchange will definitely become a beautiful and magical collectible item, and as a fan of the Harry Potter series and light-up village collections, I will need to start hunting down the first set of the series and start collecting the rest. They are all going to look so magical together and give off warm and happy feelings during the Christmas season. I, for one, will be looking forward to seeing Hogwarts Castle, the Hogwarts Express train and station, and Hermione!
