How to pre-order LEGO Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat as new set released
Are you a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff? Or, dare we say, a Slytherin? Let this brand-new LEGO Talking Sort Hat decide your fate. Here's how to pre-order the Harry Potter model today.
The average person may assume that Harry Potter fans have had their wizarding world fix over Christmas, what with the eight Harry Potter movies being shown on television over the festive period, including our favourite (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, obviously).
However, the average person would be wrong! For us Potterheads, we're always looking for new Harry Potter experiences and memorabilia to keep the magic alive — and what could be better than this brand-new LEGO Talking Sorting Hat? Yes, it actually speaks.
This buildable Harry Potter-themed set will make a magical gift for a friend or family member (if you can bear to part with it), as it's an 18+, 561-piece, fairly challenging build, but it can also be displayed in their home.
The Talking Sorting Hat can be placed on a stand, which features Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff crest decorations, as well as a Harry Potter minifigure wearing their own Sorting Hat to complete the display.
All in all, the LEGO Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat model measures 9.5-inches high and 7.5-inches wide. But, enough about the technicalities for now, how do you pre-order the brand-new LEGO build? And, most importantly, how does the Talking Sorting Hat actually speak?

To activate the voice of the Talking Sorting Hat, simply tip the top of the hat or place it on your head. There are 31 randomised sounds — we mean, pure magic — which will select which Hogwarts House you belong to, and be sure to listen out for the Sorting Hat Song every now and then, too.
The LEGO Talking Sorting Hat comes with batteries included.
