Bought this for my nephew (along with the Hermione wand for my Niece), I think they're great. Love Harry Potter stuff, it's all magical. The kids will LOVE these wands. Yes they are plastic but that does not matter, the effects will be enjoyed to the max!!
I WAS SUPPOSED TO GET A FREE HP KEYRING but didn't. Wassup widdat PlayPeople? apart from that I'm always happy with my Play purchases ;-)
