I would want the Cloak of Invisibility! I would have so much fun running around, playing jokes, and sneaking out like the trio did in the books. That would be the best ! I would also like the Time Turner or a Broom, which would both be extremely fun! I just want EVERYTHING!

Although my son is now 18 months old, I still seem to have “baby brain,” so a Remembrall would be most useful!

A functioning wand would be grand but a time-turner would be just as good.

I love the knit clothes everyone is wearing. I love the idea of Molly’s sweater, but I’m not a bright colour type of person. Snape’s scarves from Philosopher’s Stone would be great. So too would his costume. I’d also settle for a cauldron. Pewter. Size 9. :)

I would love to have a giant squid of my very own… And I would love him, and dress him up as a unicorn and feed him macaroni & cheese all the time! :+D

I could really use a Pensieve to take some heavy memories off of my mind that I don’t need to think of so often and could keep them locked away. I would probably let loved ones borrow it as well to ease their burdens a bit.
