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 the Sorting Hat made out of a sturdy rubbery material. You can clearly see the hat's face & there is a little button on the bottom that you can press to be told what house you've been sorted into. It seems to say the four house names at random which is fun but I have to admit I was a tiny bit disappointed it only says the names and doesn't have any of the fun Sorting Hat songs from the books & movies.

The quality of this model is slightly better than the Hedwig one because it doesn't have the little errors like visible glue or a badly placed cage hiding important features of Hedwig.

I still think it's slightly misleading that the product description says these kits come 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.
