$16.00 on Amazon If you know a little witch or wizard who is still waiting on their Hogwarts acceptance letter to come, the wait is almost over! Now, you can design a personalized Hogwarts acceptance letter, complete with the name, address, and gender of the recipient. Even if you insert your own name, the arrival of the letter is sure to send a thrill of excitement running down your spine.
You've always wished that you could be a wizard. Now, you can be! Simply fill out the pertinent information, and before you know it, you'll be on your way to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where you'll be able to learn about fantastic magical beasts with Hagrid, explore transfiguration with Professor McGonagall, and perform charms with Professor Flitwick. Who knows? You could even discover that you have the gift of seeing into the future, making you Professor Trelawney's new star student!
There's nothing quite like being a student at Hogwarts. Many former students fondly remember the castle's ever-changing staircases, secret passageways, and moving, talking paintings. Being sorted into your House is a life-changing experience. Are you a daring Gryffindor? A determined Slytherin? Do you have your eye focused on wisdom, like a Ravenclaw, or on loyalty, like a Hufflepuff? Chances are, you personify many of the characteristics of all of the houses without even realizing it, but once you enter Hogwarts, you'll get a closer look into your true personality. Not only that, you'll form allegiances and make friends who will be with you for a lifetime.
If there's a young witch or wizard in your life, keep in mind that it's not every day your young man (or lady) turns eleven. This milestone birthday changes the life of a young member of the magical community forever: it's the year they're able to enter Hogwarts. While it might be intimidating to consider letting your child climb on a train to a place you've never seen and can't reach, keep in mind that their experiences there will shape their lives forever. They'll never regret the day you chose to send them off to Hogwarts, and you'll be proud to have a practicing young witch or wizard in the family, able to use their magic whenever they like within a matter of a very few years. The seven years at Hogwarts are a brief period in the life of a young member of the magical community, but they'll have a far-reaching impact that will never let them down.
Note: this letter does not constitute an actual binding magical contract, nor will it enable a Muggle to enter Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In fact, if you attempt to find the building, you will find that it is not on any map. Wander by its location, and you'll see only moldering old ruins that appear to have no resemblance to a school of magic. Only if you are of magical blood will you be able to find a true place in the hallowed halls of this magical institution.
