Hardcore Harry Potter fans don't just get to enjoy the wonder and magic of the wizarding world, but might even be able to make a pretty penny from their Hogwarts addiction, too.
So as well as the hours of entertainment JK Rowling has spread to adults and children worldwide, it's filling savvy fans' pockets, too, with reports suggesting certain editions of the first four books regularly sell for thousands of pounds. Do you own any?
took a look back at some of the HP memorabilia that could be worth a small fortune. It turns out that only 500 first editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone were published in 1997, with 300 copies going into the British library system and the remaining 200 heading to book stores.
At the time, Bloomsbury had no idea how popular the story would be, so they didn't print any more – and yet, in 2005, one of the first edition Philosopher's Stone books sold for £22,327, with sources adding that first editions of Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire also sell for four figure sums regularly.
First editions of the final three books are not worth as much due to the Harry Potter mania influencing increasingly massive print runs – although any books signed by JK or the cast have potential to add value, too.
Interestingly, it's not just copies of the books that are worth a small fortune, with original versions of the complete Harry Potter Lego Collection having also been up for sale for over £7,000.
Harry Potter branded trivia games, jigsaw puzzles, Uno cards and the like have also been advertised for hundreds of pounds at a time online, too. Is anyone else contemplating raiding their lofts right about now?
