I received a LEGO Harry Potter product to facilitate my review from Warner

We had the opportunity to receive the Harry Potter Hogwarts Whomping Willow Set.

Fly the Ford Anglia into the spinning branches of the Whomping Willow, then help the young wizards escape to join Hermione at Hogwarts, featuring a dormitory, potions classroom, Professor Snape’s office and an owlery.

My take: I just finished reading the entire Harry Potter series out loud to my 7 year old and this LEGO set is an ideal addition to our Harry Potter collection. The fact that there are 6 minifigures included in this set is phenomenal.
This set instantly brings back memories of the Whomping Willow (I love how the branches can spin) with the entrance to the Shrieking Shack, the Ford Anglia car and of course the Hogwarts Castle. The back of the 3 level Hogwart’s castle is spell binding…. it includes Professor Snape’s classroom, potions classroom (with included cauldron and potions), dormitory and owlery.
This set is simply fantastic and allows for so many different options for re-enacting your favorite scenes.
