For our Halloween Party last year, we did an all-out HP theme and made our house inside into Hogwarts. This Sorting Hat was integral. I pre-sorted the guests (they didn't know it) and had a phone on speaker mode right nearby. Our friend hid in the other room, on the line, and would call out the name of the house in his best sorting hat voice. Everyone got a great kick out of it, and it really broke the ice!

I thought when it said 'authentic' and exactly as in the movie and taking into account its cost, that it would be made of something a little better than thin cheap fake suede and wire. The patches are just lighter fake suede.
Was I expecting real suede or leather? Of course not! But I wasn't expecting the same kind of material that you find in a children's throw away after one use (and they don't usually make it through one use) Halloween costume. The only 'OFFICIAL' merch I will be buying from now on is from the Noble Collection. Their items are the best quality there is. Too bad they only do the wands and small items.
I wouldn't wear this, but if I did it would have to have stuffing in it to make it look even slightly right, and it is going where the original prop did after Philosopher's (Sorcerer's to you Americans) Stone, up on a high shelf in my study where no one can look at it too closely to see it is poor quality.
That must be why this site doesn't allow zoom in picture options, they don't want you to see it's poor quality until you've already bought it. Sorry WB, but I expected more from you. I'd pay more for one made better (but not more than $10 or $15 more), and was expecting you to understand that not all fans are 12 and not all fans plan on breaking or throwing away the items when we grow up. C'mon guys! You've had 11 years to get it right!

          This was used to sort our "students" into their houses at my daughter's Harry Potter birthday party. The kids and adult loved it!!! It was very soft and I love that it is adjustable on the inside to fit the smaller kiddos. This was definitely one of the highlights of the party and highly recommended.

            Comments about Hogwarts Sorting Hat:

            I loved the idea of adding this to my Harry Potter collection shelves. It is not made of the greatest material and with to much handling seems like it would fall apart more than what the sorting hat's tattered appearance should be. It is not very rigid so I have to prop it into position. We had two guys at our house a few weeks ago to set us up with faster internet and they caught sight of it and went bezerk trying it on and taking pictures of each other wearing the sorting hat. It was hilarious to watch other adults go crazy about Harry Potter paraphernalia.

            Does not Match Picture

            Comments about Hogwarts Sorting Hat:

            Not too bad. However the hat does not match the picture. The face on the sorting hat is almost hard to find and you have to kinda of re mold the hat to make a face. Even after that, it still does not look at all like the picture. The cloth is a light brown and should be dark brown. The face should be more ridged and detailed, that is the most important part. People should see it and know what it is. The hat is really flimsy and made of cheap material. The hat only fits a small head maybe 12 years and younger. It only adjusts to a smaller head. What about the adults nerds that have a cult following for HP? Please make a more accurate and detailed product. Not to mention the description says replica, it's not even close to replica.

                Well let me tell You that is too big for my expectations I though it was smaller. I actually will like to change it for other product like the Hemani Bobblehead which I really like my Harry Potter Bobblehead.
