One of the more popular items at the Harry Potter park is broomsticks. Whether the less expensive versions or the very real looking versions of the ones seen in the movies, Universal has a hard time keeping them on the shelves.
The less expensive versions cost $32.95 plus tax and imitate the Nimbus 2000 — Harry’s original broomstick for quidditch.
They’re made of plastic and are a great souvenir for a younger Harry Potter fan, since there’s not too much at risk if it gets lost or broken. It’s essentially an accessory for a Halloween costume that’s become a souvenir on it’s own with the opening of the Harry Potter park.
The more expensive version is a high-quality collector’s item that ranges in cost from $250-300 and are often sold out.
These Harry Potter brooms are made by the Noble Collection, which is the same company that makes the wands that are sold in the Wizarding World park. They’re very nice and you can even see them in this video, “floating” above the Dervish & Banges shop.
They’d make a fantastic display piece, but I can’t imagine using them as a “toy” or costume accessory. What do you think?
