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!

So cute.Things like this make me want to be a kid again.And the food looks nice.I love apples.Those cakes look tasty too...
That picture of three kids, the last one actually looks like Ema Watson. Adorable! All of them! At lease someone still cares about children.
Ohhh my gosh I wish I was thereeee!!!!! I really really really want the game, but I need to save up :D
Haha I meant that in a playful way, of course. Great event though, I have to say. Those cupcakes...OH MY GOD. So delicious. : )
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?
