It is quite amazing that those plastic little bricks that began life in a Danish workshop in the late 1940s have managed to capture the imagination of millions of children all over the world for several decades!
The fact is that Lego products remain one of the strongest contenders in the toy market and this is down to it being so simple yet so enjoyable, leaving children to use what is in their minds to create their own play scenarios.
The creators of Lego are able to keep pace with what the modern child wants and since the Harry Potter series of books and films has proved so popular, it only made sense to introduce the genre to the Lego range. The Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle LEGO 4842 set is one of the newest sets available and allows children to recreate the impressive Hogwarts School.
