Hello fellow geeks!
Yep, it's that time of year again, World Book Day! World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own. It’s also a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
Children (and even big kids) all over the world go to school and work dressed as their favourite book characters. As always here at Geek HQ, Harry Potter has been a firm favourite this year. So we're here to help out with costumes, books, stationery and everything in between!
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary House Edition Books (from £7.99)
The Harry Potter franchise is as big as ever, and that certainly shows as the books are still being released and sold worldwide 20 years on. So far the first 4 books have been released in the house pride colours and are proving a huge success with people of all ages.
Mystery Wands (£15.99)
Our mystery wands are a fantastic (and cost effective) alternative to our collectable replica's, which kids can also use as a toy. There are 9 wands to collect in the series. Let the wand choose the wizard! Each includes a bookmark of the character too, which is a great way to encourage reading for the younger ones.
Skele-Gro Water Bottle (£15.99)
One of our favourite replicas from the series, the Skele-gro water bottle. Let's hope Gilderoy Lockhart is not around on the day to ensure you really need Skele-gro*!
*Definitely does not taste of pumpkin juice.
Advanced Potion-Making Journal (£13.99)
Beautiful collectible hardback journal featuring MinaLima original artwork with silver foiled cover details, silver foiled edges, with 200 lined pages and a ribbon. This textbook was famously owned and annotated by the Half-Blood Prince and later fell into the possession of Harry Potter.
Also available in the MinaLima series: The Tales of Beedle the Bard Journal, A History of Magic Journal, Dark Arts Defence For Beginners Journal, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Journal, Hogwarts: A History Journal.
We also stock a wide range of clothing and accessory items from hats, scarves, gloves, robes, bags and pin badges.
This Harry Potter lunch box is perfect for work, school, picnics and re-fuelling after Quidditch practice! This eco-friendly option is made of bamboo fibres rather than plastic, and features a collegiate style print that reads, "Training for the Quidditch world cup" against a burgundy background that includes the white silhouette of a golden snitch.
Monster Book Of Monsters Notebook (£17.99)
Scribble your spells in this monstrously magical notebook - unlike the real deal, it won't bite, we promise - just be sure to stroke its spine! With its plush finish and quirky 3D details, it's such a cool find for Potterheads.
House Prefect Pin Badges (£4.99)
We do of course have many other items in stock, but these are just a few which we thought would be perfect for World Book Day! All items are available for click and collect too.
Until next time...
