While the calendars are already on back-order on Lego's website—they'll ship by September 28, FYI—there are a few other places you can still snag one before they're gone. Here’s everything you need to know about the Harry Potter Advent calendar, including where to buy it. Accio holidays!

Where to order the 2021 Lego Harry Potter Advent calendar

Here's where you can buy the 2021 Lego Harry Potter Advent Calendar.

Lego’s Harry Potter Advent calendar is currently available to order on a number of sites, including Amazon, Target, Barnes And Noble and Walmart. It retails for $39.99 and given everything that you get, it seems well worth the money. Even if you get it on back-order, it will be on your doorstep long before the holiday rush.

If you don’t get one of this year’s Lego Harry Potter Advent calendars, you can always check eBay and other spots on the secondary market. Otherwise, you’re pretty much out of luck until 2022. So if this is on your kid’s Christmas list, you’ll want to make sure you order one ASAP. Otherwise you might just have to blame "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named."

What comes in the 2021 Lego Harry Potter Advent calendar?

The 2021 Lego Harry Potter Advent calendar is fun for wizards of all ages.

There are a total of 274 Lego pieces in this year’s Harry Potter Advent calendar, including six minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Dudley Dursley and Griphook. The pieces and accessories behind the other doors hearken back to the Harry Potter movies and can be combined to “recreate Harry’s amazing journey from Privet Drive to Hogwarts: the Hogwarts letters arriving through the fireplace, collecting gold from Gringotts’ vault, picking up Harry’s school supplies and meeting Hedwig the owl.”

You’ll also find the supplies for lunch at a Great Hall table, a train cart for toting all of Harry’s supplies and two wizard card tiles. Behind the calendar’s last door is a colorful spinner which can be used to play the board game that’s also printed on the calendar. 

The calendar is recommended for young wizards ages 7 and up, but who’s to say you can’t just buy one for your adult self?
