Kidadl's Top Pick

1. Harry Potter Deluxe 11.5L Backpack

Harry Potter Deluxe 11.5L Backpack.

It's hard to beat a backpack for universal appeal, and a Harry Potter backpack is right up there with ultimate gifts. A perfect Potter present for kids, this bag can accompany them through their adventures at Hogwarts School and Hogsmeade village no problem. At 11.5 litres, it's roomy enough to hold their wands, water bottles, and school books, there's an inside compartment for laptops, side storage pockets and has gold Hogwarts School graphics on the front. Shoulder straps are padded, the pocket has magnetic front fastenings, and the burgundy colour recalls the colours of Gryffindor (but we'd say this is a suitable gift for Hufflepuffs, Slytherins, and Ravenclaws, too).

There are eight mini figures of the best loved characters (including Harry, Ron, and Hermione themselves), all with their own wands.
