The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley has many shops that long-time Harry Potter fans dream of visiting.
Most fans know the name of this infamous store; but for those who don’t, allow me to introduce you to Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes: the joke shop founded by Fred and George Weasley. These unpredictable twins had a lifelong dream of opening a place to share their fun creations with all witches and wizards.
Some of the products are widely known, but there are many that the common Muggle may not be familiar with. Take a look at this list of 9 popular items you can find at this one-of-a-kind shop!
1. Fever Fudge, Puking Pastilles, U-No-Poo, Fainting Fancies and Nosebleed Nougat
This range of sweets has been useful in getting students out of class for years at Hogwarts. Each sweet will give the user a different symptom such as fever, vomit, unconsciousness, or a nosebleed. You can pick the one you want to try or experience a variety of them with the Skiving Snackbox.
2. Screaming Yo-yo
The name definitely shrieks for itself with this magical toy. Its distracting screams can be heard from across the room!
3. Decoy Detonator
This popular item is typically used to create a diversion in a time of need. You’ve actually seen it in action before in the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow: Part 1. Once dropped, there’s no way to catch it!
4. Love Potion
This powerful brew doesn’t need much of an explanation. Give it to the person you desire and see the magic happen yourself.
5. Chattering Teeth
Wind it up and the conversation will never stop!
6. Extendable Ear
Looking to eavesdrop? Get an Extendable Ear to listen to any quiet conversation from up to 12 feet away. Make sure your cat doesn’t eat it though… Yes, we’re talking about you, Crookshanks.
7. Pink Elephant
This may look easy, but it only took twenty tries. Keep you and your friends easily entertained by seeing how many attempts it takes to perfectly flip this toy to land on its feet.
There’s an assortment of Muggle toys inside the shop as a tribute to the twins’ father, Arthur. He was fascinated with Muggle artifacts, so there are a few vintage toys you can get like the Duck on Bike, Elephant on Bike and Robot Lilliput.
9. Pygmy Puff
These furry little creatures are one of the Weasleys’ most popular bestsellers. They come in different shades of pink and purple, can be found in three different sizes and you may even get one that purrs! There’s also a fun naming ceremony for each Pygmy Puff that gets adopted. The giant bell in the store is rung to announce the adoption and the new owner gets to tell everyone the name they chose.
These items (and many more) can all be found in Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.
