I was never allowed to take an animal to school, which is one of the things that makes Hogwarts so appealing. Of course you only ever hear about cats, rats, owls and toads, which makes me wonder if dogs are allowed. I think it would really upset my corgis to learn they couldn’t go, I’m pretty sure they’re Potter fans. Speaking of Potter fans, check out this excellent Hedwig by builder DOGOD Brick Design.


Disney's The Sword in the Stone has a bit of a checkered past. Though officially considered a moderate success by the company, it has never caught much traction. This is a shame because while it's a bit uneven, it's actually a good film. Archimedes, here brilliantly recreated by Legohaulic, is a stand-out character. If you have the opportunity, give this film a chance.
