The Harry Potter Hedwig Lego set - Review!

I got the Harry Potter Hedwig Lego set a while ago and never got around to putting it together until the start of this year.

Bring the magical personality and elegant movement of Hedwig, the celebrated snowy owl from the Harry Potter movies, to life. The collectible LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig display toy offers a rewarding building experience and looks magnificent on show. The 630 piece set suitable for children aged 10 years plus.

When I opened the box I thought it will only take a couple of hours to put together, I was so wrong. lol The last time I did anything with Lego was when the kids were much younger and their Lego sets had a lot less parts. When I was a child I had Lego but no real sets, I just built what I wanted with the blocks that I had. This set came with 4 bags of Lego, pack one being the base, the 2 pack being the body of Hedwig, 3 mostly being the wings and 4 everything else that was left.

Building the base and body of Hedwig was pretty straightforward and what I did notice was the little handle, I had no idea that the wings on Hedwig would move until I was building. Turning the handle operates a mechanism that drives Hedwig's wings up and down.

I found it a challenge to put the wings together and on. I had them on upside down and the wrong way around at one point but I eventually got them right. It wasn't looking much like an owl until I got further into the build and started adding things to the wings. The detail is really amazing and it looks so realistic.

The finished Lego Hedwig really is stunning! It was well worth the effort that it took to put it together! The instructions are easy to follow but there was a few parts where I really had to study them to figure out where parts went. It took me about 3 and a half hours to put together, I did it over a few days. It measures 
20 cm (7.8”) from beak to tail and 17 cm (6.7”) tall and looks really realistic. I love that the wings move, that is a really nice addition.

This is a great set for any Harry Potter fan! I love it, I now have it on a shelf in my living room as I am so proud of it!

I paid about £29.99 for it a while ago when it was on sale but I have since seen it on Amazon for just over £30.00.

Do you like building Lego sets?


  1. Well done, it looks amazing. Lego is so technical these days, I remember helping the girls put together their Ninjago dragons, they had moving wings too, I was amazed by how each little piece was created. xx

  2. That is so cute! My boys were whizzes at putting Lego sets together; my oldest could have really large very intricate sets put together in just a couple of hours. That always amazed me. I did have to get pretty good though as Evan had zero patience for it and always asked for help.

  3. It looks like an amazing set, so many tiny pieces and so much detail!
