  • A Harry Botter beanie? It's true! Celebrity Bears has come out with a bear that is patterned right after Harry Potter! Of course, he is not called "Harry Potter" and is not endorsed by JK Rowling or her publishers in any way. Click here to take a look

  • Warner Bros. has announced Mattel will be manufacturing toys based on Harry Potter! Little is known yet, but the line will include dolls, games and high-tech toys. Products are due in the fall and are expected to be sold at Warner Bros. Studio Stores and then in other retail locations for the holidays.

  • The NY Times announced Hasbro has won the rights to produce Harry Potter trading cards, electronic games and candy (including Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans)! We will see these products in the fall.

  • Pokemon cards... Magic the Gathering cards... Harry Potter cards! Wizards of the Coast, the company that brought Pokemon and Magic cards to retailers everywhere will be producing a Harry Potter card game! These cards are due in late 2000. To this I strongly object. Pokemon and Magic the Gathering are not in favor with many parents today. Despite the fact that the Harry Potter series has made many kids want to read, it is sliding down the parent popularity polls, and it being added to the ranks of the Pokemon and Magic the Gathering cards will make them less receptable to Harry Potter.
