There was more information released today about one of the many new Harry Potter products due this summer as part of the release of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Klutz, a division of Scholastic and maker of "books plus" for children, has issued a press release detailing their new "Building Cards Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry"
Details about this new product due to be released in May 2007 are as follows:

"Building Cards(TM) Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" will be packaged with 90 perforated leaves that break into more than 350 building cards, plus a hand-painted Harry Potter figurine. Sturdy slot-to-slot construction means there is no need for glue or nails, and the cards can be taken apart and re-assembled over and over again. (A good thing, since staircases at Hogwarts have a habit of moving around.) The instructions are filled with building ideas, assembly hints, step-by-step illustrations and directions so simple, even a Muggle could follow them.

"We think Harry Potter is one of the best things to ever happen in the world of kids' literature," said John Cassidy, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Klutz. "So when the opportunity arose to help kids build a part of his world, we poured our hearts into the project. Hogwarts and Klutz turned out to have some real magic."

"Well, no one really knows until they get there, do they, but I know I'll be in Slytherin, all our family have been -- imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?"
