Teach your kid the magic of coding with this Harry Potter wand

Coding works a lot like magic—except, you know, it’s real. Teach any aspiring wizard coding fundamentals with this Harry Potter wand.

If your young’un is still waiting for their Hogwarts acceptance letter, this brilliant piece of tech will surely hold them over. Once they build it, the wand works with a handy app to do all the things wizarding school students do. They’ll make feathers float, multiply goblets, make pumpkins grow, and perform countless other magical activities.

But the real magic lies within the programming. With every flick of the wrist, budding wizards will pick up serious STEM skills. It works with most apps and computers and is as educational as it is fun to play with.

STEM skills may not repel Dementors, but they will help prep kids for the world of math and science. Help them get STEM-ready with the Kano Harry Potter coding kit, which releases on Amazon on October 1, and is available for pre-order for $99.99.
