LEGO Harry Potter Sorting Hat photo op at LEGO Store Leicester Square

LEGO Harry Potter Sorting Hat arrives at LEGO Store Leicester Square today
Find out which house you belong to, wizard style, with a life-sized LEGO Harry Potter Sorting Hat at the LEGO Store Leicester Square.

To celebrate the arrival of the LEGO Harry Potter range, the LEGO Store Leicester Square had a life-sized brick built Sorting Hat. The giant LEGO model features a chair for guests to sit in, with big brick built Harry Potter and Hermione Granger minifigures wither side of. For the photo op, fans sit in the chair underneath the LEGO Sorting Hat.

The Sorting Hat is not a method of separating bricks by colour or size, but an integral part of starting at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Each new student must be sorted into one of the four houses – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin – in the Sorting Hat ceremony.
