A Review: Harry Potter Wall Art

December 05, 2009, 08:04 AM

Editor's Review: As a parent for years I had hoped they would produce quality Harry Potter decals like so many others already on the market to have for a bedroom, or now to help decorate a rec room, Harry Potter style. Just recently I had the chance to take a closer look at a piece from this collection first hand, this gorgeous cut out of Hogwarts Castle, and can report that indeed these are high quality decals, well worth the wait and a good investment if you are willing to go for the larger sizes.

To begin with, the decal has a different feel to it, more like a thin fabric than any sort of plastic decal I've used before, and found it did work well on two different surfaces with no residue, paint or anything left clinging to the surface after removing. Also, true to their word, I discovered you can indeed remove these decals and wiggle about as demonstrated in the company video, and then use again with relative ease.

In all honesty, the cutout Hogwarts Castle is probably one of the harder pieces in the collection to display given the many delicate towers and turrets of the castle (sometimes quite small but its the detail that makes it so much better), thus I was extra careful when removing the decal from the backing paper. This process took a while to make sure all went up straight and without bubbles, and in fairness the company recommends for larger pieces that you might consider a helper. In the end, with a ruler and a bit of patience, I must say it was well worth the effort as I now have a wonderful image of Hogwarts aglow in my room, far better than anything I might have printed off the internet, a very nice addition to the room!
