A friend of mine is fortunate enough to be going to Florida during the half term purely for a shopping excursion for me for Christmas gifts. (Ok So I made that bit up – she is going, but not just for my benefit). I was going to send her with a shopping list though.
I figured I’d do a bit of research and check out the online store at Orlando Universal Studios to see what treats I could have her bring back for the childerbeast from the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter“.
(FYI Hollywood and JK Rowling – Harry Potter is English so I think it rather unfair that the majority of Harry Potter merchandise is not available in this country). Note that that it used to be… until the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter”**said in faux Yank accent** opened it’s doors. Way to sell out there JK. Cheers for that love. Couldn’t have built a theme park over here then?
I don’t want my pal to go insane in the gift store: just some Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans maybe or, as I thought when I saw them online, maybe some chocolate frogs…
Then I saw the price tag………..
THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR A TOY? Do I have ‘SUCKER‘ tattooed across my forehead? The fucker doesn’t even fly!
Think we’ll just stick to the old bookmark and pencil, like we do at every other day and school trip they ever go on.
