The Magical World of Harry Potter
Where would we be without The Magical World of Harry Potter? A much less creative and imaginative Muggle World, I suppose. Let your imagination run wild with these especially spellbinding Harry Potter items from Books-A-Million.
Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat
To be a true Harry Potter fan, you absolutely need to know which house you represent. Are you ambitious and cunning like a Slytherin? Or dedicated and patient like a Hufflepuff? There’s only one way to find out—let the Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat sort it out.
Harry Potter Clue Board Game
This special edition includes unique rotating wheels that change aspects of the game mid-play, making no two games alike. So be sure to watch out for those secret passages and moving staircases!

Harry Potter Code Names
It’s all about solving the case when you play Harry Potter Code Names—a fun, easy-to-learn cooperative word and picture deduction game. During the game, teammates must locate secret agents concealed among a grid of Harry Potter references. The tricky part: you must guess using only one-word clues.
Do you have the Harry Potter Smarts to win the game? Find out!
Pets are great, but they can be a lot of work. What’s the next best thing? Interactive pets, of course! Check these out:
Fingerlings T-Rex – Ironjaw
If you have kids then you’ve most likely heard of the newest Fingerlings craze. Just one interaction with them and you’ll understand why. From baby dragons and unicorns to monkeys and dinosaurs, there’s a menagerie of Fingerlings to choose from.
My favorite is the Fingerlings T-Rex. Simply flip a switch and this interactive pet instantly comes to life—all while gripping adorably to your finger. There is just something awfully sweet and funny about this little guy, isn’t there? But the real question is, do you have what it takes to tame it?
Find their soft side and it will nuzzle and purr. But unleash their inner beast and it will roar, hiss and chomp. See—sweet, yet funny and slightly startling.
Fingerlings Mad Libs Junior
Mad Libs—one of the easiest and most entertaining games to play when you’re young. I have to say, this game gave me some truly hilarious moments as a kid. But have you checked out the Fingerlings Mad Libs Junior version? It’s even made the game a whole lot cooler!
Based on traditional Mad Libs, this new version is both fun and interactive. Bonus: you can use your very own interactive pet while playing the game. That Fingerlings T-Rex just took Mad Libs to the next level!
Kids and Family Games
The holidays are about family togetherness. If you’re looking for ways to get the whole family together, get the 411 on these fun, laughter-inducing games available at Books-A-Million.
Speak Out Kids vs Parents Game
This hilarious family game will have everyone rolling on the floor in side-splitting laughter.
Speak Out–Kids vs. Parents game puts kids against parents as each player tries to say a different phrase while wearing a mouthpiece. Here’s the kicker-the mouthpiece looks like something from the dentist’s office that doesn’t let you shut your mouth. Yep, it’s totally ridiculous, which is why it’s so hilarious!
Not only will speaking around the mouthpiece be difficult, but deciphering what the other team is saying through the laughter will be quite a challenge too!
Purchase now and bring your family together for laugh-out-loud fun.
Rules can be good, but sometimes, you just want to be a little bad. So let loose your inner cheater and break the rules in this Monopoly-Cheaters Edition game. Make sure you don’t let your rule-abiding conscience slip out either because in this game, only the cheaters are rewarded!
Plush. Just saying the word out loud can make you feel cozy inside. If you know someone who likes animals and cuddling, these plush items are the ideal gift.
Skippyjon Jones (With Plush Cat)
With his big ears and wild imagination, Skippyjon is no ordinary Siamese cat. No way! This frisky kitten dons a mask and cape to become El Skippito, the great sword-fighting chihuahua ready to battle banditos and one bad bumble-beeto.
What’s extra special about this gift set is that it includes a complete hardcover edition of Skippyjon Jones, plus a soft and fuzzy Skippyjon stuffed animal, complete with maskito!
Skippyjon Jones is a favorite in my house, yes indeed-o. It’s cute, funny and full of wild imagination—three things that make the perfect read for you and your kiddo.
Petto Face Pillows
Petto Face Pillows are the ultimate plush find for anyone who loves animals. Each has its own name and personality too, which makes them an instant companion for its lucky owner.
Kisshu the panda, has quite the sweet personality. Not only is she a kind, friendly good listener, but she also loves vanilla ice cream and watching TV.
Her friend Keiko the cat is a winning choice, too. She is kind, well-mannered and very polite. She also happens to love doughnuts with sprinkles!
