School Supplies in Hogsmead
If you ever need to buy school supplies for your young witch or wizard, the best place to visit is Hogsmeade, a quaint English village located in the heart of Orlando, Florida.
There you can buy the black robes that pass for a uniform at Hogwarts, that foremost school of Magic and Witchcraft. Regardless of what House the sorting hat has assigned them to, you can find other necessary attire, such as sweaters, hats, and scarves, to match the colors of Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Gryffindor.
First-year students, and careless students who need a replacement, can find the wand that suits them best at Ollivander's Wand Shop.
If your young witch or wizard is into sports, they likely play Quidditch. The older brooms Hogwarts assigns their students tend to pull to the side, and can prove truculent at times. For a more responsive model, I suggest the Nimbus 2000. What it costs you in money, it'll make up on the field. The increased performance might be enough to get him or her on one of the House teams.
Or perhaps your children look to the heavens for their inspiration. You'll find a wide variety of telescopes to help your children interpret the meaning of celestial movements.
Of course, every young woman needs her own mirror, if only to remind herself--every day--who's the fairest of them all. It's her, naturally.
