Review:
Anyone who knows me knows I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan so naturally when birthdays or Christmas roll around you can guarantee there will be HP themed gifts in there (I'm definitely not complaining about that!). This year my friend bought me two of these model and sticker sets, Hedwig and the Sorting Hat, and I think they're great.

Like many HP fans I have a massive collection of merchandise, I have a whole display cabinet full but it's already overflowing so I'm running out of space. This kit includes a small model of Hedwig in her cage, it's the perfect size to display alongside the HP funkos or would just make a great bookcase decoration. I'm actually planning a HP themed Christmas tree for this year and because of the hanging loop at the top of the cage I think this will be a perfect addition to that.

The model isn't perfect, unfortunately the way the bars line up mean that if you look at it straight on Hedwig's face is hidden, and the glue used to hold the pieces together is clearly visible, but it's still a cute model and those things aren't noticeable at a distance.

I think it's slightly misleading that the product description says this comes with a 16-page book of stickers, while that's technically true it does give the impression you'll receive more than the 8 stickers that are actually included. They are pretty cute stickers though (see picture below) so I wasn't disappointed.
