Fantastic presents and where to find them

Fantastic presents and where to find them

Once more the air is filled with magic and every now and again you meet a witch or a wizard going to see the newly released ‘Fantastic beasts and where to find them’. It brings me great joy that we get to revisit the amazing world J.K. Rowling created for us on a big screen. Don’t worry I will not spoil any details for you here and all I will say is that David Yates managed to capture the whimsy of Harry Potter quite perfectly and it is definitely a welcome addition to the saga.

But this is not what I wanted to talk about. I want to share with all of you a little secret I kept for a while. You see much like a lot of people I am a huge Potter head and couldn’t wait for this movie to come out. I decided to go online and find my fix elsewhere, so I stumbled across the Minalima studios. The guys that helped  bring to life the infamous Marauder’s map, the Daily Prophet and every other graphic prop in the film series. Needless to say, they are extremely passionate and have great understanding of the Harry Potter universe.

I can’t express how thrilled I was to find out that they have a studio/shop right in the heart of London just filled with all kinds of artistic goodies including a whole floor dedicated to Fantastic Beasts. I want to highlight that all the props you will see there have been actually used in the movies. One of my favourites is the display of Harrys, Rons and Hermiones exercise books (actually signed by the actors). Being amongst all of that magic you can’t help but feel more connected to this beloved saga and it just brings back all sorts of fun memories. Beware there is danger of a serious geek out ^^

Now lets get to the presents part. The ground floor is a shop filled with newspaper prints, wanted posters and MinaLima signed copies of “Fantastic Beast and where to find them” ( Limited stock, so better be quick) as well as Harry Potter inspired stationary items that you can be a proud owner of.  The amount of detail on every single item is outstanding and it really shows that they love this world just as much as we do. Trust me when I say that it will make for a perfect gift for all your Potter fans in the family this Christmas.
