Tired of knocking down your Knight Bus just to build it again? Bored of breaking apart your Beauxbatons' Carriage for the umpteenth time? Well, LEGO-loving Harry Potter fans, you're in luck because the toy company has just announced that six new sets are on the way.

From June 1, Wizarding World enthusiasts will be able to get their hands on miniature brick versions of Hedwig carrying a letter, the Dursleys' family home at 4 Privet Drive, the Room of Requirement (aka Dumbledore's Army base) and Professor Horace Slughorn's classroom in the Astronomy Tower.

A Forbidden Forest set is also one of the designs coming soon, which depicts the dastardly Dolores Umbridge encountering Grawp the giant and a group of centaurs in the mysterious woods.

Finally, one of the more elaborate newbies is 'Attack on The Burrow', which is inspired by a scene in the series' sixth instalment where Harry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley must help the latter's family protect their home from Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters.

"Each year we get the chance to recreate some of the most action-packed and exciting settings from the films," Marcos Bessa, LEGO® Harry Potter™ Design Lead said in a prepared statement.

"We hope these new products inspire young builders around the world to believe anything is possible as they act out their own adventures in the Wizarding World."
