This Harry Potter Wand Actually Works IRL & Your Kids Won’t Believe It

A magic wand that actually works might just be every young wizard’s dream—and now tech education company Kano wants to make that dream come true. The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit lets kids build their own interactive wands that teach them how to code at the same time.

The kit, one of Kano’s fastest pre-ordered items of all time, contains all the parts you need for kids to build a wand that will react to a flick or swish of your hand. Once completed the wand can be used to complete over 70 challenges that will take young coders through six different settings in the Wizarding World, including Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade and The Forbidden Forest.

Each challenge will be based around teaching kids coding, like connecting code blocks and learning about loops and logic. With their new coding skills, kids can use the wand to create magical effects, like painting pictures, growing pumpkins and making fire through an app on a tablet or device.

The wand is easy enough for younger kids to construct, but the games and challenges presented through the Harry Potter-themed app that accompanies it will keep both kids and adults entertained and learning. The wand is compatible with iOs and Android on tablets and laptops.

After months of anticipation, the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit is finally available for purchase just in time for holiday shopping. The kit retails for $99.99 via Kano’s website and at select online retailers, including Amazon.
