Review: IncrediBuilds: Harry Potter: Sorting Hat Book and 3D Wood Model - Jody Revenson

Kids can build their own customizable Sorting Hat with this exciting hardcover book and 3D wood model set from IncrediBuilds. For generations, the Sorting Hat has placed first-year witches and wizards into one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Get an up-close look at how the Sorting Hat was imagined, designed, and brought to life for the Harry Potter films. Readers will learn how the filmmakers crafted the Hat's unique appearance, how Harry, Ron, and Hermione were Sorted into Gryffindor their first year, and how Fawkes brought the Hat to Harry's aid during Harry's battle with the Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets. Finally, build your own Sorting Hat with the included do-it-yourself wood model, and paint it any way you like!

Review:
I've been enjoying collecting these Incredibuilds Harry Potter model kits so while the Sorting Hat was definitely one of the easier models to make it still looks great on my bookshelves with the other models. It isn't my favourite of the set, I like the animals more, but they've done a good job of creating a recognisable Sorting Hat. While this model was very easy to make I did end up damaging a small part and having to glue it in place so be careful when putting all the pieces together.

As with all of these kits this comes with a book about how they brought the Sorting Hat to life for the movies. It also has sections about Professor McGonagall, The Great Hall, Dumbledore's Office, Fawkes, the Sword of Gryffindor as well as details on other hats seen throughout the series.
