Hufflepuff or Gryffindor? LEGO Sorting Hat Reveals Your House

German LEGO retailer has listed an upcoming LEGO Harry Potter set on it’s site, giving us the first look at the Talking Sorting Hat (76429)

The replica of the classic Sorting Hat from Harry Potter is listed at 561 pieces and priced at €79 on ProShop. The set will also see the return of the “sound brick” – this time capable of saying 31 different phrases. We’re hoping to hear some classic phrases from Harry Potter along with the expected ones telling you which house you belong to.

There’s one minifigure included in the set – Harry Potter himself, wearing a scaled down version of the sorting hat. He can be positioned on stand for the hat that includes 2×2 tiles with the 4 house logos on them.

Sadly – the hat isn’t designed for most people to wear – maybe a small child could perch it on their head if they sat really still (ha!) – but definitely not an adult.

More details will be released shortly either from the Nuremberg Toy Fair or by LEGO directly now that this is out in the wild.

Translated from German:

The Sorting Hat made of LEGO® bricks is full of surprises and perfectly reflects the magic of Hogwarts™ Castle and the Wizarding World! Tap the top of the hat or put it on your head to make him speak. Enjoy the random playback of 31 sound combinations! Will he choose House Gryffindor™, Slytherin™, Hufflepuff™ or Ravenclaw™ for you? The hat is on a stand. And the Harry Potter™ minifigure completes this playful eye-catcher.
