For our next shop tour, we will be visiting one of the stores that stands out the most in Diagon Alley- Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. The first time I visited Diagon Alley and saw this shop, I almost burst into tears because it looks exactly like the shop in the movie! Seeing it made me feel like I was truly in Harry’s world and I was super excited to go inside it.
Upon entering Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, you are met with a variety of colors and so many items that you’re not quite sure where to look! It wasn’t until one of my more recent visits that I noticed the fireworks on the ceiling!
This shop features many of the Weasleys’ signature items from the movie such as the Extendable Ears, Decoy Detonators, U-No-Poo, and of course The Skiving Snackbox- though the snacks are sold separately as well. So if you’ve ever wanted to try Puking Pastilles or Fever Fudge, here’s the place to do so!
A display of love potions is awaiting the witch or wizard who wants to bewitch their crush into falling in love with them. One of the newer additions I’ve seen is a love potion bag, which is really nice and perfect for the fashionable witch who love pink. The bag isn’t really my style, so I don’t think it will be one of my future wizarding purchases. I have yet to try the love potion- I’m already happily in love and don’t feel it is needed- but am tempted to try it and then display the bottle on my- in progress- potion shelf.
Also at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes you will find Pygmy Puffs! These adorable fluff balls come in two colors, pink and purple, and come in a variety of sizes! If you adopt a Pygmy Puff at this store, you can have a naming ceremony for it. In one of my last visits to this store, I got to see a naming ceremony. The young girl named her new Pygmy Puff Arnold Schwarzenegger, which is a pretty awesome name for one of these little guys! And to show your love for Pygmy Puffs they have plenty of other merchandise for them such as slippers, shirts, and pants!
This is one of the best shops in Diagon Alley. From the products to the way it is designed and just the overall atmosphere, it is one of the shops that feels most authentic to what we see in the movie. This shop is a must visit on your way through the wizarding world!
If you were to visit Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, what item would you purchase first? What would you name your Pygmy Puff? What snack would you be more interested in trying? I would love to know your answers to these questions! I hope you all enjoyed this shop tour, I know I enjoyed photographing it!
If there are any shops you are curious to see, let me know and I will cover them in a future post! I will be covering shops in Hogsmeade as well, so keep your eyes open for them! Have a great week everyone!
