It's hard to contain our excitement. Harry Potter x Schleich!!
Schleich, a German company, has partnered with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products (WBDGCP) to bring to life some of our most beloved characters and creatures from the World of Harry Potter!
Schleich's Wizarding World will launch in September 2023! Figurine sets will include: Harry Potter and Hedwig, Ron and Scabbers, Hermione and Crookshanks, Hagrid and Fang, Luna Lovegood and a Baby Thestral, and Albus Dumbledore and Fawkes.
Additionally, Schleich will release six single figurines of the most iconic creatures from the Harry Potter series: Dobby, Firenze the centaur, Aragog, Buckbeak, Fluffy the three-headed dog, and a Hungarian Horntail dragon - which will be the largest of the figurines at over 16 cm.
“The Schleich brand is known for authenticity, attention to detail, and quality all over the world, and Wizarding World will uphold these properties,” comments CEO of Schleich GmbH, Dirk Engehausen. “Whenever children play with our characters, they immediately enter their very own universe where there are no rules, no boundaries. What embodies that idea better than Wizarding World, where so much is possible?”
Schleich hopes to continue this partnership with future releasing of additional Wizarding World characters and playsets in 2024 and 2025.
The Wizarding World franchise began in 1997 with the release of the first book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, by British author JK Rowling. The rest is fandom history.
