    Best Harry Potter LEGO sets 2021

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone 

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of the major LEGO themes on the market in 2021. In June 2021, four new LEGO Harry Potter sets are hitting the stores and all of them are from Books 1 and 2 of the series. We’ll get started with our list with LEGO from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (a.k.a. Sorcerer’s Stone) which is not from the new sets but it’s how it all started, with a letter: 

     

    LEGO Hedwig

    LEGO Hedwig

    Best collectable 

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 10+ | Pieces: 630 | Product dimensions: wingspan 13” (34cm) and a beak-to-tail measurement of over 7” (20cm) | Item # 75979 | Minifigures: 2

    ➕ Moving wings

    ➕ Challenging build-and-display model

    ➕ Rewarding building experience

    ➕ Affordable - under $40

    ➕ Goes great with LEGO Fawkes: Dumbledore’s Phoenix

    ➖ Only 2 minifigures

    One of the most exciting scenes in the first installment of the Harry Potter book series was an owl bringing the Hogwarts letter (well, MANY letters to be exact) to the young wizard, Harry Potter. Many children all over the world started dreaming of receiving their letter on their 11th birthday and this LEGO Hedwig carrying a Hogwarts letter could make the perfect gift for a young witch or wizard. 

    Hedwig, the snowy owl, was a gift from Rubeus Hagrid for Harry’s 11th birthday which he gave him on Harry’s first visit to Diagon Alley. Hedwig is Harry’s pet animal through his years at Hogwarts and delivers mail and birthday gifts for him during summer breaks at 4 Privet Drive (click on the link to see the awesome LEGO 4 Privet Drive with LEGO minifigures of the Dursley family members). 

    This Harry Potter LEGO set is a bit unconventional in terms of structure - the owl’s wings are moveable and reviews say it might be a bit challenging to assemble. This detailed model of Hedwig who makes a very special delivery is endearing and exciting at the same time. The magnificent owl makes an awesome addition to any Harry Potter LEGO collection. 

    LEGO Hogwarts Castle

    Arguably the most famous and exciting Harry Potter LEGO set is the LEGO Hogwarts Castle. Most HP fans who can afford the set have already made the desirable purchase and have certainly spent many pleasurable hours assembling it, adding other LEGO sets to it, admiring its grandeur and posting photos of it on social media. 

    (Did you know that the Hogwarts Castle LEGO was actually the third biggest LEGO set on the market? Yes, the biggest one is the LEGO Colosseum with 9,036 pieces and the second biggest is LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon with 7,541 pieces. This makes Hogwarts the largest LEGO castle by far.) 

    The Hogwarts Castle has become a powerful symbol in the Harry Potter community worldwide and fans of all ages recommend the set as the ONE must-have among them all. And of course, this is the best LEGO castle of the Harry Potter LEGO themed series!

    The LEGO Harry Potter Castle is the one of the biggest LEGO sets out there with more than 6,000 LEGO parts.

    Of course, you can always buy LEGO pieces or other LEGO sets in order to personalize your set. For example, there is a small-scale Hungarian Horntail dragon included in that set. If you want to upgrade to something more extravagant - click on the link for LEGO Hungarian Horntail Triwizard Challenge. There is also a small-scale Chamber of Secrets included in the Castle.

    LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall

    LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall

    Best value

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 9-14 | Pieces: 878 | Product dimensions: 18.9 x 2.78 x 14.88 inches

    Item # 75954 | Minifigures: 10

    ➕ Large number of LEGO Harry Potter characters

    ➕ Includes the Mirror of Erised and House banners

    ➕ Rare LEGO minifigures of Nearly Headless Nick and Professor Quirrell

    ➕ Perfect addition to the Hogwarts Castle

    ➖ Expensive

    This LEGO Harry Potter set combines several scenes from the Harry Potter movies together. The Hogwarts Great Hall has seen much action during the series and here we can see a LEGO Nearly Headless Nick minifigure as well as Professor Quirrell and the Mirror of Erised from book/movie 1 and the Basilisk from book/movie 2. The set also includes Professor Dumbledore’s office with a moveable staircase, the Sorting Hat, and the famous Wingardium LeviOsa scene with Ron and Hermione. 

    This is one of the LEGO sets with most LEGO Harry Potter minifigures included so don’t be alarmed by its price - this is one of the best LEGO sets in terms of value. It’s an amazing standalone set and it works great in addition to other sets on our list (e.g. LEGO Hogwarts Castle and LEGO Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter).

    LEGO Quidditch Match

    LEGO Quidditch Match

    Best playable LEGO Harry Potter set

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 7-14 | Pieces: 500 | Product dimensions: 15.04 x 10.31 x 2.22 inches

    Item # 75956 | Minifigures: 6

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Minifigures in quidditch uniforms (!)

    ➕ Best LEGO Harry Potter 5-7 years

    ➕ Perfect for play dates

    ➖Only one goal included

    ➖No stadium structure

    This LEGO Harry Potter set would make an awesome gift for witches and wizards who are into magical sports. Harry gets into quidditch early in Book 1 and it’s always been an important part of the series. One of the few faults in this LEGO set is that while it includes all the four towers of the Hogwarts Quidditch Stadium, there is only one set of hoops (goal) included. So, if you want to have the matching set you’ll have to either purchase the set twice or collect the hoops separately.

    The set contains all quidditch balls and bats - the golden snitch being of course the shiniest of them all. The LEGO Quidditch stadium is one of the most beloved Harry Potter-themed LEGO sets because it’s also one of the most playable - it’s perfect for recreating quidditch games with friends and the more LEGO minifigures of Harry Potter characters you have - the more fun it would be! 

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Potions Class

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Potions Class

    Best for Slytherins 🐍

    Best portable set

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 271 | Product dimensions: 7.52 x 10.32 x 2.4 inches

    Item # 76383 | Minifigures: 3

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Portable LEGO set

    ➕ Collectable (part of a set of 4) but also great as a standalone set

    ➖ Not suitable for witches or wizards under 8 years of age

    The Potions class LEGO set boasts the colors of the notorious Slytherin House - green and silver. It’s one of the new LEGO Harry Potter sets on the market, though not the newest. It’s a part of the four collectable Hogwarts classroom LEGO sets and it’s relatively easy to assemble because it has less than 300 LEGO parts.

    The set includes 3 minifigures - Professor Snape, Seamus Finnigan, and Draco Malfoy. Around the LEGO classroom you can see many tiny vials of potions, a white board, and a table with a sofa. It’s actually a very cozy representation of the infamous potions classes from the books and movies - a perfect gift for anyone who’s been sorted into Slytherin House.

    LEGO Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter

    LEGO Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter

    Most accurate representation of a movie scene

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 397 | Product dimensions: 12 in. (30 cm) high, 7.5 in. (19 cm) wide and 2.5 in. (7 cm) deep | Item # 76387 | 

    Minifigures: 4 (including a collectable GOLD figure - Hermione Granger)

    ➕ NEW set (20th anniversary edition)

    ➕ Included LEGO Fluffy - the three-headed dog

    ➕ Includes a rare minifigure

    ➕ Perfect addition to the Hogwarts Castle

    ➕ Affordable - under $40

    ➖ Not available on Amazon yet

    ➖ Small set

    Harry, Ron, and Hermione met Fluffy the three-headed pet dog of Hagrid’s right before they faced the tasks at the end of Sorcerer’s Stone. This set includes an awesome LEGO Fluffy with 3 moveable heads who would make a perfect companion of the Hungarian Horntail (scroll down to see the set). 

    This 20th anniversary edition Hogwarts LEGO set is one of the most accurate representations of Harry Potter movie scenes on our list - have a closer look at the box and examine the trap door, the Devil’s Snare, and the harp. The scene is familiar to all Harry Potter fans and would be perfect for a play date with buddies. The set is feature-rich regardless of the relatively small sizes of the elements - it contains the golden trio (Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s LEGO minifigures) as well as a magical creature and a piece of the LEGO Hogwarts Castle. What’s not to love!

    LEGO Hogwarts Wizard’s Chess

    LEGO Hogwarts Wizard’s Chess

    Must-have for chess-playing HP fans

    One of the best playable sets

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 10+ | Pieces: 876 |Product dimensions: 3 x 10.5 x 210.5 inches| 

    Item # 76392 | Minifigures: 4 + 32 buildable chess pieces (including a collectable GOLD figure - Professor Snape)

    ➕ NEW set (20th anniversary edition)

    ➕ Relatively affordable - under $60

    ➕ Suitable for chess player enthusiasts (& HP fans of course)

    ➕ Includes a rare minifigure

    ➖ Not available on Amazon yet

    We have wished for a way to play Harry Potter Wizard’s chess since the first Harry Potter book came out in 1997. And now, more than 20 years later, thanks to LEGO - we can! They came up with a real chess board with buildable LEGO chess pieces so Harry Potter fans can enjoy a magical game of chess with their favorite Harry Potter characters.

    The set includes the classic chess board 32 pieces which players need to assemble first. The LEGO minifigures of the golden trio are not in their Hogwarts uniforms but in casual clothes. The set also includes a one-of-a-kind Professor Snape golden 20th anniversary edition LEGO minifigure. 

    Now that we’re done with the best LEGO sets from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, we move forward to book/movie 2:

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

    The second installment of the Harry Potter movie series started with the infamous scene in 4 Privet Drive where Dobby tries to prevent Harry going back to school for his second year at Hogwarts. We’ll start our list of the best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets right there:

    LEGO 4 Privet Drive

    LEGO 4 Privet Drive

    Best versatile playset

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 797 | Product dimensions: 6” (17cm) high, 6” (16cm) wide and 4” (12cm) deep; car - 4” (12cm) long | Item # 75968 | Minifigures: 6

    ➕ Includes a blue flying Ford Anglia LEGO car

    ➕ Includes the rare minifigures of the Dursleys and Dobby (!)

    ➕ Perfect for play dates

    ➖ Expensive

    ➖ The minifigures of the Weasley twins are not included.

    This is the only LEGO set which takes the Dursley family under the spotlight - it’s a wonderful representation of the scene where the twins and Ron rescue Harry from the Dursleys in the beginning of book/movie 2 (however, the set only includes Ron rescuing Harry for some reason). Many fans would be happy to own a Dobby LEGO minifigure as well as the rare minifigures of Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley.

    There are many hidden surprises to discover in this set - the cupboard under the staircase where Harry used to sleep, a little hole in the wall from where you can slip Hogwarts letters inside the house, the awesome interior of the Dursley’s living room and Harry’s bedroom. 

    One of the best things about this set is that it includes the LEGO Ford Anglia which the twins and Ron use to come and get Harry and take him to the Burrow in the beginning of Chamber of Secrets. Have in mind that there is another LEGO set containing Arthur Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia (scroll down). 

    LEGO Hogwarts Whomping Willow

    LEGO Hogwarts Whomping Willow

    Best set with moving parts

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8-14 | Pieces: 753 | Product dimensions: 18.9 x 11.1 x 2.91 inches

    Item # 75953 | Minifigures: 6

    ➕ Includes a blue Ford Anglia LEGO car

    ➕ Moveable Whomping Willow tree

    ➕ 6 minifigures in total + a Hedwig minifigure

    ➕ Rare minifigure of Argus Filch

    ➕ Perfect addition to the Hogwarts Great Hall

    ➖ Expensive

    This set features a small part of the Harry Potter LEGO castle wall with several little chambers at the back. But the buildable Whomping Willow tree is definitely the big accent of this LEGO set. The Ford Anglia goes on top of it - if you move the branches first you can move the whole tree with the flying car as much as you want. The car’s trunk opens so you can put Ron and Harry’s suitcases out for their next year at Hogwarts. The set includes cauldrons for the potions class, a daily Prophet newspaper, and Filch's lantern.

    If you’re looking for a bigger LEGO Harry Potter adventure - you can combine this set with the Hogwarts Great Hall LEGO set and enjoy the more features together. (FYI, there is a smaller scale Whomping Willow at the LEGO Hogwarts Castle set but this one is the real deal!) 

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Herbology Class

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Herbology Class

    Best for Hufflepuffs

    Best portable set

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 271 | Product dimensions: 7.52 x 10.32 x 2.4 inches

    Item # 76384 | Minifigures: 3

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Portable LEGO set

    ➕ Collectable (part of a set of 4) but also great as a standalone set

    ➖ Not suitable for witches or wizards under 8 years of age

    Channel your inner Hufflepuff with this fantastic LEGO set. The Herbology class LEGO set boasts the colors of Hufflepuff House - yellow and black. Hufflepuffs are known for embracing nature and keeping an open mind! This portable LEGO set is all about the favorite activity of every self-respected member of Hufflepuff House - caring for magical plants, a.k.a. Herbology. 

    Inside the book cover you’ll find Cedric Diggory and Neville Longbottom working alongside Professor Pomona Sprout in one of the Herbology greenhouses at Hogwarts. (As you may know, Herbology was Neville’s favorite class and regardless of the fact that he is indeed a Gryffindor - the Herbology classroom is one of the best places to find good-natured Neville.)

    We included this particular Hogwarts Moment on the 10 best Harry Potter LEGO sets of 2021 because it incorporates more exciting elements - a rare minifigure of our beloved Professor Sprout, the tragically famous Cedric Diggory in working uniform (looking dashing as usual), and poor baby Neville Longbottom running with scissors. The set also includes pumpkin LEGOs (LEGO pumpkins?) and various other magical plants - the general atmosphere is of a cosy classroom with lots of lamps and greenery. Awesome!

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Transfiguration Class

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Transfiguration Class

    Best for Gryffindors

    Best portable set

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 241 | Product dimensions: 7.52 x 10.32 x 2.4 inches 

    Item # 76382 | Minifigures: 3

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Portable LEGO set

    ➕ Collectable (part of a set of 4) but also great as a standalone set

    ➖ Not suitable for witches or wizards under 8 years of age

    The Transfiguration class LEGO set boasts the colors of our beloved Gryffindor House - red and gold. The set includes stern-looking Professor McGonagall as well as Ron and Hermione in school uniforms. The overall impression of the Transfiguration classroom is somewhat more dry than the Herbology class we already reviewed but every Gryffindor would certainly find it a cool collectable set. 

    It’s an awesome LEGO set for children above the age of 8. They can pack it during a road trip and play with it in the car/plane. One of the great things about this Harry Potter LEGO is that you can collect all the four sets and unite the bindings of the LEGO books. 

    LEGO Polyjuice Potion Mistake

    LEGO Polyjuice Potion Mistake

    Best small set

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 7+ | Pieces: 217 | Product dimensions: 3 in. (8 cm) high, 5 in. (12 cm) wide and 2.5 in. (6 cm)

    Item # 76386 | Minifigures: 4 (including a collectable GOLD figure - Harry Potter)

    ➕ NEW set (20th anniversary edition)

    ➕ Affordable - under $20

    ➕ Includes a rare minifigure as well as the golden trio

    ➕ Includes a Hermione minifigure with cat head

    ➕ Goes great with Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets LEGO set (scroll down)

    ➖ Works best as an addition to another set

    ➖ Under 300 pieces

    Now this is a treat that’s hard to beat! This small LEGO set would make a perfect addition to Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets (another new LEGO set) but it’s also a superb choice as a standalone piece. 

    The Polyjuice Potion Mistake depicts the scene where Harry, Ron, and Hermione drink the Polyjuice potion and while Harry and Ron turn into Crabbe and Goyle, Hermione’s potion doesn’t quite get the result she was hoping for. The little mishap happens in the girl’s lavatory haunted by Moaning Myrtle and which turns out to be a crucial spot for those who seek the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets.

    This is one of the new Harry Potter LEGO sets and it contains a rare golden minifigure of Harry Potter. If you are a fan and money is no object - you can collect all the anniversary sets and get all of the golden minifigures together as a set. Sigh!

     

    LEGO Fawkes: Dumbledore’s Phoenix 

    Best for Fantastic Beasts fans

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 10+ | Pieces: 597 | Product dimensions: wingspan of over 14 in. (35 cm) | Item # 76394 | Minifigures: 2

    ➕ Moving wings

    ➕ Challenging build-and-display model

    ➕ Rewarding building experience

    ➕ Affordable - under $40

    ➕ Goes great with LEGO Hedwig

    ➕ Great present for a fan of Fantastic Beasts

    ➖ Only 2 minifigures

    Fawkes the phoenix is Dumbledore’s pet bird and for those of you who are fans of the Fantastic Beasts series this phoenix means way more than that. Fawkes plays an important role at the very end of the terrifying scene down in the Chamber of Secrets. He is the one that saves Harry, Ron, and Ginny (and Professor Lockhart as well, yes) out of the Chamber and flies them to the surface. 

    According to what we know about phoenixes, they can carry extremely heavy loads and their tears can cure even a basilisk bite. Newt Scamander has included it in the list of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them because of their magical abilities. 

    The buildable LEGO phoenix Fawkes includes two minifigures - one of Albus Dumbledore of course and a minifigure of Fawkes. The large Fawkes is a magnificent collectable item as a part of a larger collection (e.g. LEGO Hedwig) or as a standalone item.

    LEGO Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets

    LEGO Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets

    Best depiction of a movie scene

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age:+ | Pieces: 1176 | Product dimensions: 15.5 in. (40 cm) high, 15.5 in. (40 cm) wide and 4 in. (11 cm) deep | Item # 76389 | 

    Minifigures: 11 (including a collectable GOLD figure - Lord Voldemort)

    ➕ NEW set (20th anniversary edition)

    ➕ Over 1,000 pieces

    ➕ Best value

    ➕ Includes an impressive Basilisk figurine

    ➕ Includes a rare minifigure as well as 10 other minifigures (!)

    ➕ Includes the minifigures of Professor Lockhart, Professor Sinistra, Tom Riddle

    ➕ Perfect addition to the Hogwarts Castle

    ➖ Expensive

    ➖ Not available on Amazon yet

    This is one of the big LEGO sets on our list which also contains the most LEGO minifigures - 11. On top of that, you get a playable set with many surprises hidden in the tunnels under the Hogwarts Castle. 

    The giant Basilisk is terrifying the village (which is really a village of minifigures here!) and the door to the Chamber of Secrets is waiting for you to speak Parseltongue to it (the general rule of thumb being - if Ron can do it, you can do it).

    Since we’re almost finished with book/movie 2, let’s see the best way to combine your Chamber of Secrets LEGO - you can get this set as well as the other new LEGO Harry Potter set - the Polyjuice Potion Mistake. And of course, nothing would be complete without the Whomping Willow and the flying Ford Anglia. Accio LEGO sets! 

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 

    Prisoner of Azkaban is the favorite book and movie of many (!) Harry Potter fans across the globe. That’s why the selection of LEGO Prisoner of Azkaban is particularly awesome! Here you’ll find the top LEGO sets depicting different scenes from the book/movie which you can build on your own thanks to the LEGO Group. Let’s dive in:

     

    LEGO Knight Bus

    Best LEGO Harry Potter vehicle

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 403 | Product dimensions: 6” (16cm) high, 6” (16cm) long and 2” (6cm) wide | Item # 75957 | Minifigures: 3

    ➕ Relatively affordable - under $40

    ➕ Perfect for kids who like playing with cars/trucks/carriages

    ➕ Removable upper floor

    ➖ Plain design

    There are many means of transportation in the Harry Potter series - flom flying broomsticks to the Hogwarts Express, floo powder, apparition, flying carriages, thestrals, hippogriphs, ships that go underwater… and we get to one of the most beloved one - the Knight Bus. It saves Harry from what he perceives to be a really dangerous black dog but was actually Sirius in his animagus form (no, that wasn’t a spoiler!). 

    The LEGO Knight Bus includes a rare Stan Shunpike figure (“What you fell over for?”) and a minifigure of the hilarious Ernie Prang - the driver with poor eyesight. And of course, there’s LEGO Harry who can go anywhere on the bus he likes. This set would go great with the LEGO Beauxbatons’ Carriage and/or the LEGO Hogwarts Express (scroll down) - all of them extraordinary and super cool to play with. (Also, don’t forget the flying Ford Anglia - scroll up.)

    LEGO Hogwarts Express

    LEGO Hogwarts Express

    Best LEGO train

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8-14 | Pieces: 801 | Product dimensions: 21.26 x 11.1 x 3.09 inches

    Item # 75955 | Minifigures: 6

    ➕ Famous Harry Potter LEGO

    ➕ Includes a dementor minifigure

    ➕ Awesome platform design

    ➕ Moveable barrier for platform 9 ¾

    ➖ No tracks included

    ➖ Only one passenger carriage

    Now, the LEGO Hogwarts Express is one of the most popular LEGO sets on the market. Every school year at Hogwarts starts and finishes with a scene at the Hogwarts Express and they all happen to be very emotional. Especially going back to the Dursleys for the summer - after the end of each Hogwarts adventure there are many things to conclude and this always happens on the train back home. 

    This LEGO set features the beginning of Harry’s third year at Hogwarts with the unexpected visit of a dementor of Azkaban aboard on the Hogwarts Express. The set includes an awesome platform 9 ¾ of the King’s Cross station which is one of the best symbols of the Wizarding World. A must-have item!

     

    LEGO Brickheadz Hagrid & Buckbeak

    Best unconventional design

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 10+ | Pieces: 270 | Product dimensions: figures are 3” (9cm) tall

    Item # 40412 | Minifigures: 0

    ➕ Affordable - under $20

    ➕ Adorable/unconventional/unique design

    ➕ Collectable

    ➖ No minifigures

    ➖ Under 300 pieces

    Hagrid is the first wizard that Harry (and we as readers/viewers) meets in the very beginning of book/movie 1. And he is without a doubt one of the most beloved characters in all the series. Why? He is Dumbledore’s trustee man and whatever happens Hagrid is extremely loyal to him and to Harry for that matter. He is a good saul with a soft spot for giant magical creatures and we all just fell in love with Hagrid at the end of Philosopher's Stone when he gave Harry the scrapbook with all the pictures of his deceased parents (here come the waterfalls). So yes, he is one of the all-time positive-only favorites of all fans.

    In this LEGO set, which looks a bit unconventional but it’s all the more worth entering your collection, Hagrid appears with a cute lantern alongside Buckbeak. The LEGO Harry Potter BrickHeadz collection includes several other sets like Harry and Hedwig, Dumbledore and Ron, Hagrid and the golden trio, and Grindelwald and Newt.

    LEGO Hogsmeade Village Visit

    LEGO Hogsmeade Village Visit

    Best atmosphere

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 851 | Product dimensions: 8.5 in. (22 cm) high, 11.5 in. (30 cm) wide and 3.5 in. (9 cm) deep | Item # 76388 | 

    Minifigures: 7 (including a collectable GOLD figure - Ron Weasley)

    ➕ NEW set (20th anniversary edition)

    ➕ Unique Hogsmeade LEGO set

    ➕ Includes a rare minifigure as well as 6 other minifigures

    ➕ Includes the rare minifigures of Madame Rosmerta and Mr. and Mrs. Flume

    ➖ Expensive

    ➖ Not available on Amazon yet

    A great injustice was done to Harry in Prisoner of Azkaban when uncle Vernon failed to sign his permission form to visit Hogsmeade village while at Hogwarts. Of course, with a serial killer on the loose Harry was not permitted by anyone else. And he went anyway which came as no surprise to anyone (breaking several Hogwarts rules at the same time). 

    This LEGO set of snow-covered Hogsmeade village is a beautiful representation of his illegal visit to the magical village - it includes a total of 7 minifigures which is twice the amount of most other Harry Potter LEGO sets we reviewed on this list. 

    This set is our pick for the best LEGO Harry Potter set of 2021. It’s a new addition to the LEGO HP family and many fans and collectors can’t wait to see it next to their Harry Potter merch. Have a great time at Christmas Hogsmeade everyone! (I hear you need to make a reservation at the Three Broomsticks so send your owl in advance. 🦉)

    LEGO Hagrid's Hut: Buckbeak's Rescue

    Best design

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 496 | Product dimensions: Hagrid’s Hut measures 6” (16cm) high, 9” (23cm) wide and 4” (12cm) deep | Item # 75947 | Minifigures: 6

    ➕ Beautifully designed

    ➕ Includes a moveable Buckbeak figurine

    ➕ Includes a battery-powered light brick for the fireplace

    ➕ Includes rare minifigures Minister of Magic and Executioner

    ➕ Perfect for play dates 

    ➖ Relatively expensive

    ➖ Battery not included

    Who wouldn’t like to sip a giant cup of tea at Hagrid’s Hut? This LEGO set focuses on the day of Buckbeak’s execution which thankfully never actually took place. Hagrid is meeting the Minister of Magic, the Executioner and Dumbledore while Harry, Ron, Hermione and Scabbers exit from the back door. The LEGO figurine of Buckbeak among Hagrid’s giant pumpkins is just adorable!

    This is a beautiful take on one of our top locations around Hogwarts - Hagrid’s Hut. The set is perfect for a play date and in addition to the LEGO Hogwarts Castle. ( FYI, there is a smaller scale Hagrid Hut at the LEGO Hogwarts Castle set.) 

     

    LEGO Expecto Patronum

    Best depiction of an emotional scene

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 7+ | Pieces: 121 | Product dimensions: 10.32 x 5.55 x 1.89 inches

    Item # 75945 | Minifigures: 4

    ➕ Includes a beautiful LEGO patronus figurine - Harry’s stag

    ➕ Includes 2 dementor LEGO minifigures and a rare minifigure of Sirius Black

    ➕ Goes great with Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak Rescue (scroll up)

    ➖ Under 200 pieces

    ➖ Small set

    The ending of Prisoner of Azkaban is a wild ride - going back in time, saving Sirius and Buckbeak, not getting expelled after attacking a teacher. (Poor Professor Snape got everything wrong again). But the most emotional moment of all was without a doubt when Harry managed to produce an animal-shaped Patronus guardian. (Even at his Defense Against the Dark Arts O.W.L. exam, the teacher asks him to produce his Patronus which leads to Harry getting the Outstanding grade.)

    In this set we can see the lake surrounded by dementors (2 dementor minifigures included), Sirius Black being close to death, and Harry who went back in time producing his first (out of many) Patronus charm. The scene reveals that his Patronus is a stag, the same as his father’s thus emphasizing the connection between father and son. To be honest, the stag looks pretty cool in this LEGO set - a must-have!

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    The Goblet of Fire is one of the most intense books/movies in terms of Hogwarts adventures - the Triwizard Tournament, the three tasks and four champions (“Harry, did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?”), three schools, the Yule Ball... no quidditch! Ah well! 

    Here come the best LEGO sets from The Goblet of Fire!

    Fasten your seatbelts:

     

    LEGO Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts

    Best magical transportation design

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 430 | Product dimensions: the carriage with horses measures 5” (13cm) high, 11” (30cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide | Item # 75958 | Minifigures: 4

    ➕ Beautifully designed

    ➕ Relatively affordable - less than $60

    ➕ Includes minifigures from the Beauxbatons students and Madame Maxime

    ➕ Goes great with Hogwarts Clock Tower LEGO (scroll down)

    ➕ Goes great with the Knight Bus (scroll up)

    ➖ Might be more difficult to construct

    One of the most memorable moments at the very beginning of Harry’s fourth year at Hogwarts was the arrival of the two guest schools of magic - Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. The scene in the movies is an emotional moment whenever we rewatch it and Hagrid welcoming the Beauxbaton carriage is just spectacular. 

    This set will surely transport you to the grounds of Hogwarts waiting for the Triwizard Tournament to start. The Beauxbatons’ carriage is one of the best Harry Potter LEGO means of magical transportation (after the LEGO Knight Bus of course which is awesome!).

     

    LEGO Harry Potter Clock Tower

    Best iconic Hogwarts location

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 9+ | Pieces: 922 | Product dimensions: 13” (35cm) high, 13” (34cm) wide and 7” (18cm) deep | Item # 75948 | Minifigures: 8

    ➕ Almost 1,000 pieces

    ➕ Includes Dumbledore’s office with the Pensieve

    ➕ 8 minifigures (in formal robes)

    ➕ Including a rare Viktor Krum minifigure

    ➕ Goes great with Hogwarts Castle and Hogwarts Astronomy Tower

    ➖ Expensive

    Have you always wanted to attend the Yule Ball at Hogwarts? Well thanks to LEGO, now you can. The LEGO Harry Potter Clock Tower is one of the best sets on our list, with the most minifigures (including several rare ones, e.g. Viktor Krum - the famous Bulgarian seeker), and it’s one of the largest Harry Potter-themed LEGO sets. 

    One of the great things about this set is that all the minifigures are in formal robes - there are the four Triwizard Tournament champions as well as Ron and Hermione, and the teachers Madame Maxime and Professor Dumbledore. Those would make an awesome addition to your collection!

    Regarding the building - the set includes a moving dancing area, a beautiful clock on the iconic Astronomy Tower, Dumbledore’s office with the trustee Pensieve next to his desk, and the Prefect’s bathroom with the mermaid on the window. It’s a beautifully designed set which allows you to immerse yourself in the magical Yule Ball and dance with the champions.

     

    LEGO The Rise of Voldemort

    Best set with Voldemort

    Buy on Amazon

    MFG recommended age: 7+ | Pieces: 184 | Product dimensions: 3” (10cm) high, 6” (17cm) wide and 5” (14cm) deep | Item # 75965 | Minifigures: 4

    ➕ Accurate depiction of the scene

    ➕ Included Triwizard Tournament LEGO Cup 

    ➕ Moveable parts

    ➖ Might be considered a bit too graphical

    ➖ Under 200 pieces

    This is one of the most horrifying scenes in all the books and movies - Cedric Diggory dies tragically after he and Harry decide to share the victory and win the Triwizard Tournament together. The Goblet of Fire teleports them together to the cemetery where Harry has to become a victim of Voldemort once again. 

    This set has more of a collector’s kind of value - there is an unknown Death Eater’s minifigure, and of course Voldemort, Harry in Triwizard Tournament uniform, and the pathetic excuse of a wizard - Pitter Pettigrew. Besides Tom Riddle’s grave there is one tombstone with the sign of the Deathly Hallow on it and a wonderful LEGO Triwizard Tournament cup included.

     

    LEGO Hungarian Horntail Triwizard Challenge

    Best set featuring a magical creature

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 256 | Product dimensions: 13.94 x 7.52 x 2.32 inches

    Item # 75946 | Minifigures: 4

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Includes all 4 Triwizard Tournament champions minifigures

    ➕ Includes a cool Hungarian Horntail dragon figurine 

    ➕ Goes great with the LEGO Hogwarts Clock Tower 

    ➖ Under 300 pieces

    This is a really small LEGO set with a huge magical creature - it features the dragon Harry fought in the first Triwizard Tournament task, the Hungarian Horntail. The set is affordable and is one of the best playable Harry Potter sets out there. 

    Now, the set might be small but it offers many awesome features. For example, if you don’t have the four Triwizard Tournament champions minifigures this is your chance of getting the whole set. 

    We can see Harry holding the golden egg which is the clue for his second task and the chain which holds the dragon to the ground can be removed while he escapes. Awesome! The set also includes a small tent for the champions which can go great in addition to any LEGO Hogwarts. 

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 

    We have only 4 LEGO sets to go, but those are some of the very best sets. If you’re looking for rare LEGO minifigures to collect - here’s your chance to discover some of the rarest ones. Have a very good look around and select your next favorite LEGO set:

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Charms Class

    LEGO Hogwarts Moment: Charms Class

    Best for Ravenclaws

    Best portable set

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 271 | Product dimensions: 7.52 x 10.32 x 2.4 inches

    Item # 76385 | Minifigures: 3

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Portable LEGO set

    ➕ Collectable (part of a set of 4) but can be bought separately

    ➖ Not suitable for witches or wizards under 8 years of age

    The Charms class LEGO set boasts the colors of Ravenclaw House - blue and bronze. The binding of those Hogwarts Moments LEGOs are one of the reasons they are a cool collectable item for everyone who has been sorted into the Hogwarts House in question. You can collect the set of four and unite the binding for better visual effect. 

    Now, we added this set to the Order of the Phoenix because of the Cho Chang minifigure inside but since she is from Ravenclaw this only makes sense. The Charms classroom includes bookshelves and a fireplace, the Ravenclaw banner, and various furniture.      

     

    LEGO Forbidden Forest: Umbridge’s Encounter

    The best set including a giant creature

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 8+ | Pieces: 253 | Product dimensions: 10.32 x 8.74 x 2.44 inches

    Item # 75967 | Minifigures: 5

    ➕ Affordable - under $30

    ➕ Beautifully designed

    ➕ Awesome tree with a storage place inside

    ➕ Includes a rare Professor Umbradge minifigure

    ➕ Includes 2 awesome centaur minifigures

    ➕ Cool giant LEGO Grawp

    ➖ Under 300 pieces

    One of the TOP most satisfying scenes in the Order of the Phoenix (a.k.a. Umbridge’s Reign of Terror at Hogwarts) is the moment when Professor Umbridge is attacked by the centaurs at the Forbidden Forest. (“Sorry, Professor. I must not tell lies.”) Justice has been done for Umbridge at last and there is no HP fan who doesn’t LOVE that scene. And thanks to LEGO we can add that scene to our personal Harry Potter LEGO collection and admire it as much as we can. 

    The set includes a large buildable LEGO Grawp (Hagrid’s half-brother giant) who lives in the Forest and he is awesome! There are also 2 cool LEGO minifigures of centaurs, Professor Dolores Umbridge in her pink robes, and Harry and Hermione in casual clothes. 

    One of the cool surprises of the set is that the LEGO tree can be opened and there is a little storage space in there (you can keep various LEGO pieces inside - e.g. Hermione’s lantern, wands, etc.) 

    Best LEGO from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince 

    Half-Blood Prince is one of the favorite books and movies of many fans (after Prisoner of Azkaban!) and here you’ll find two of the best LEGO Harry Potter sets on our list. Have a look:

     

    LEGO Attack on The Burrow

    Best Harry Potter LEGO house

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 9+ | Pieces: 1047 | Product dimensions: 13” (34cm) high, 8” (22cm) wide and 7” (18cm) deep | Item # 75980 | Minifigures: 8

    ➕ Beautifully designed

    ➕ Over 1,000 pieces

    ➕ Includes the Weasleys’ kitchen on the insight

    ➕ Includes the rare minifigures of Ginny Weasley and Belatrix Lestrange

    ➖ Expensive

    When the Death Eaters destroyed the Burrow we all hated them even more (if that was possible). The Weasley family practically adopted Harry from the very beginning and the Burrow, although being far from sophisticated, represented everything Harry didn’t have as a child - a large loud loving family. So yes, when the Burrow was destroyed something died in all of us. 

    This beautiful LEGO house is one of the best Harry Potter LEGOs 2021. It’s not a new set, but it’s definitely a must-have, especially if you’re a collector and a Gryffindore. It’s beautifully designed and brings back emotional memories. 

    This is the set with most Weasley family members included as minifigures - there’s Arthur and Molly Weasly, Ron and Ginny. The house is GREAT for role-playing and play dates!  
     

    LEGO Hogwarts Astronomy Tower

    Best Hogwarts Tower

    Buy on Amazon

    Buy on LEGO Store

    MFG recommended age: 9+ | Pieces: 971 | Product dimensions: 15” (40cm) high, 11” (29cm) wide and 6” (17cm) deep | Item # 75969 | Minifigures: 8

    ➕ Includes 8 minifigures

    ➕ Includes the rare minifigures of Professor Slughorn and Lavender Brown

    ➕ Almost 1,000 pieces

    ➕ Goes great with LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall 

    ➖ Expensive

    The Hogwarts Astronomy Tower might offer some awesome views of the grounds but it also wears the stigma of being the place where Dumbledore was killed. Nevertheless, this LEGO set represents the Slug Club Christmas Party organized by Professor Slughorn for his outstanding students. Harry brings lovely Luna Lovegood as his date, Neville serves the drinks, Ron and Lavender are having a date at another part of the castle, and Draco Malfoy is crashing the party.    

    Now, the Half-Blood Prince offers some pretty amazing moments in terms of atmosphere and coziness and the Slug Party is one of the rare occasions of peace and quiet before the action begins and well, we all know about the unfortunate events that take place at the end of the book. This LEGO set celebrates the last moment in the series to be immortalized by LEGO. 

    For some reason, there are no LEGO sets with scenes from the Deathly Hallows but we’ll keep waiting for the LEGO Group to come up with something new yet again. A great idea would be to have a LEGO Ministry of Magic or a LEGO version of the magical tent the golden trio spent so much time in (that could be a cool affordable LEGO with a tent and a few trees, sigh!). Or a LEGO Gringotts (imagine that roller coaster and the vaults and the white dragon!), or LEGO Azkaban… OK, that’s disturbing. 

    Anyway, which LEGO set did you like and why? 

    Wrap up
