Platform 9 ¾™
Assemble me. Welcome to the Wizarding World™!
Platform Nine and Three-Quarters—just the name conjures up an alternate world of mystery and magic, hidden doors, spells and secret passages. Platform 9 ¾ at King's Cross Station in London is where the young witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series of books and movies board the Hogwarts Express train every September 1 at eleven o'clock to travel to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as seen in the movie "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." But to get to Platform 9 ¾ , the students (and their luggage carts) had to first dash through a solid barrier between platforms 9 and 10, without attracting the attention of any nearby Muggles.
The enchanting wooden model Platform 9 ¾ by Ugears is a new addition to the Ugears Harry Potter™ collection (also featuring DIY wooden mechanical models of the Hogwarts™ Express, Flying Ford Anglia™, Knight Bus™, Hagrid's Flying Motorbike™ and Advent Calendar). This attractive train platform model is a static display that replicates the Victorian era look of King's Cross station with its beautiful brickwork and ceiling arch. The model includes a two-sided platform with upward curving arches, platform sign, a section of track, and two figurines of Harry and Ron with luggage trolley and suitcases loaded with their school things. Detailed decorative cardboard walls complete the realistic design look of the historic station, with added touches of dark mystery, like a cobweb and rat (Scabbers—is that you?).
Imagine you have passed through the barrier and are joining the young wizards on their school adventures as you build and play with this wooden model train platform from the Harry Potter™ collection by Ugears! Are you a young witch or wizard who just bought their first wand at Ollivanders in Diagon Alley? Which pet have you brought to keep you company during your semester away at Hogwarts? Or are you a senior student wondering who the two new wizards on the platform are, and will they be sorted into your same house? This detailed model Platform 9 ¾ by Ugears will fuel your children's imaginations and put them right inside the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter™.
Collect all the magical models in the Ugears Harry Potter™ collection, then explore the wider world of Ugears mechanical 3D puzzles, DIY model kits, automatons, robots, wooden puzzle boxes and STEM Lab model kits. These fun and educational wooden models will teach you and your children basic principles of mechanics and gearing, and bring out the builder and the artist in you!
