Well this morning finally saw the opening of the metaphoric Pottermore doors to the general public. I can not describe quite how over excited our 10 year old daughter is. To say she’s been banging on about it for months would be an understatement. But, if I’m honest, my excitement probably matches hers. Just imagine, a whole new world for Potter fans to explore. If the reviews from the beta are anything to go by, we’re in for a visual treat, although some commented that the interaction itself was lacking.
The doors creaked open a few hours ago, but alas, the wait is not quite over yet! The site is inundated with curious fans all eager to have a sneaky peak at JK’s latest offering. This has resulted in a bit of a backlog, so we are still waiting for that all important, glorious email which will grant access to the hidden treasures of Pottermore. Whether you’re a fan of Harry and his pals or not, there’s no denying that the Pottermore experience will engage and enthrall children and that can’t be a bad thing, as long as it doesn’t take them away from their reading ;).
Watch this space for an update…if we ever get beyond the opening animations!
