Lego Harry Potter event photo gallery

Warner Bros teams up with Sydney University to put on a spellbinding event for the little ones.

It's no secret that the world of Harry Potter has captured the imagination of young and old alike, bridging the cross-generational gap like nothing before it. Nowhere was this more evident than at the launch of Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 in Sydney on Sunday, July 4, where parents and children joined together in the magical spirit.

Teaming up with Sydney University, Warner Bros Entertainment used the majestic Grand Hall to stage a four-hour open-to-the-public event that attracted over 100 people. Highlights included a Harry Potter dress-up competition, PlayStation 3 consoles with copies of the game for everyone to play, yummy cupcakes and apples (just like at Hogwarts!), a Lego play area, and a theatrette playing the Harry Potter films.

Not one to miss out, GameSpot AU made an appearance, camera at the ready. Check out our photo gallery from the event below!

Where did that kid get the Lego head from?

Let the games begin!

The Lego play area attracts some young Harry wannabes.

Stuff this playing around business, I'm here to read!

The theatrette is ready to go, but no one seems interested…at least not yet.

Playing video games means serious business for these young Gryffindors.

Nourishment is on hand, straight from the Hogwarts kitchen!

It doesn't get much cuter than this.

Hey sis, you're stealing our thunder!

It was so cool hosting that event. Nearly clocked the game too. That kid with the Lego head actually MADE it himself! Scored himself the best dressed prize. P.s - Sis hey?
