The new product line, for children ages six and up, features some of the best-known places and scenes from the first Harry Potter movie that kids can recreate, including: the Hogwarts Castle, the Hogwarts Express, Hagrid's Hut, Snape's Class, the Forbidden Corridor, the Room of the Winged Keys, the Final Challenge, the Sorting Hat, the House of Gryffindor dormitory, Diagon Alley(TM) Shops and Hogwarts Classrooms. The LEGO Company also will release a software title this fall, LEGO CREATOR HARRY POTTER PC CD-ROM, based on the first book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. For children ages eight and up, the game allows kids to build and play in a virtual LEGO Harry Potter world.
