Rubies Harry Potter Golden Snitch Costume Accessory Rubies Harry Potter Golden Snitch Costume Accessory available on January 09 2016 from Amazon for 0.55
3.0 out of 5 stars
I purchased this item with the hopes of playing some Quidditch. The game looks so great in the movies that I simply had to play it myself. I bought some brooms, one red dodge ball to serve as a Quaffle, and two oversized softballs in place of the Bludgers. Then I loaded up my 1974 Chevy El Camino and drove to the playground.

Despite the near ubiquitous nature of the Harry Potter series, none of the kids wanted to play with me. Maybe I picked the one playground in America where the children had no idea what Quidditch is, but all of the kids I approached backed away from me and claimed not to know what I was talking about. Has it really been too long? Has America forgotten about Harry Potter?

I was disappointed, but that didn't stop me from playing Quidditch. I tossed the Golden Snitch into the air and jumped on my broom. I'm not an idiot, I know that brooms don't actually fly, but for a moment I thought that I could actually see the Snitch flutter to life...Read more

This product does not match the image supplied on amazon. I have one of the ones that does but my dog got to it, so I thought i'd get a replacement. However, what came was a hard plastic imitation of the rubber ball version of this. It's also advertised as an antenna topper, but the hole on the bottom is too small for an antenna. If I wasn't so apathetic about this, i'd demand a refund for falsely advertising this, but I'd bet they'd give me a hassle. So, this was a $6 lesson. Don't buy this, keep on looking.
