Weasley Is Our King July 13, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Although we only caught the briefest glimpse of red hair, since Jupiter retail analyst Patti Freeman Evans and I are not fourteen, we weren’t massively disappointed. This was today at the grand opening of the FAO Schwarz Harry Potter Shop, with Ron Weasley — that is, Rupert Grint — cutting the ribbon.
That’s Patti with a lifesize Lego sculpture of Hagrid, if my cell phone camera isn’t doing it justice. I walked away with a Slytherin banner and a Dumbledore tasseled hat for my dad. FAO is still the greatest, and has a big emphasis on build your own customized toys. And a cool new stuffed dragon.
