Summary

This is a lovely piece of home decor for any Harry Potter fan. It’s simple, it’s elegant and it’s complete with a touch of magic – what more could you ask for?

Despite the concluding film being released in cinemas over five years ago. Harry Potter is still a fan-favourite around the world. In fact, it seems like there are more Harry Potter products now than there were when the films and books were in publication.

Today I’m covering one of the newly released items by Paladone, Harry Potter Luminart.

The packaging is simple but in keeping with the Harry Potter brand. Open it up and inside you’ll find the instructions, a micro USB wire and the canvas itself.

I was really surprised at actually how lightweight the canvas actually is. You can see on the back it’s got mounting abilities. So you can either put it on the sideboard in a room or mount it to the wall as you would a more traditional canvas.

The micro USB allows the canvas’s lighting abilities to be powered by USB. If that’s unsuitable then the canvas also takes three AA batteries.

The canvas measures 22cm x 31cm x 7cm and is similar in width and height to the size of an A4 piece of paper.

In the photo below you can see the Patronus lit up. I chose to use the batteries to do so on this occasion. There’s no on and off button to the light instead you’re supposed to wave in front of it (from what I can understand of the instructions). This didn’t seem to work for me (it’s probably my fault). However, I found that a gentle tap turned it on and off instead.

The light itself is just the right amount of brightness in my opinion. It’s not a light, and not supposed to act as one. Instead, it simply enhances¬†the image of the Patronus to a level in which you’d expect in the world of Magic – which as Harry Potter fans we both love and appreciate.

Available to buy at around £14.99 in stores right now I think this is a great, affordable gift for the Harry Potter fan who seems to have just about everything.

Of course, I hope you have better luck in turning the thing on and off than I have. As always, we’d love to know what you think of the Harry Potter Luminart. Have you purchased one recently? Let us know in the comments below.

At the time of writing this product is available at; Very, Forbidden Planet, Sainsbury’s and Robert Dyas.
