So, LEGO came out with its Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit. The one being discussed here is LEGO 75954.
This page is devoted to coloring pages of the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit.
As the star of umpteen motion pictures and umpteen novels, Harry Potter needs no introduction. If you don't know who Harry Potter is, you're probably the only one in your particular town who doesn't.
In brief, Harry Potter is an apprentice magician who studies at a place called Hogwarts. The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit gives you the tools to build Hogwarts or, well, anything else that your mind can imagine.
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit includes all sorts of fun materials with which to build a castle. It includes house banners, tower with movable spiral staircase, potions room and treasure room, among many other things.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Harry Potter product without mini-figures of the Harry Potter characters.
The Potter mini-figures include Harry Potter (of course), Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Susan Bones, Professor McGonagall, Professor Quirrell with dual Lord Voldemort face, Hagrid, Albus Dumbledore, and Nearly Headless Nick. Any fan of Harry Potter is probably going, "that's all?" But that's a lot of mini-figures.
Actually, that's not all. Also included are buildable Basilisk and Fawkes creatures, plus Hedwig and Scabbers figures.
Depending on how you build it, the Hogwarts Great Hall measures over 14” (37cm) high, 11” (30cm) wide and 7” (18cm) deep.
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit is recommended for children between the ages of 9 and 14.
The kit includes a lot of small pieces, so it is inappropriate for very small children.
Both boys and girls should enjoy LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit.

Some people can build the entire set in about four hours. Unless you are an expert, however, count on it taking a lot longer.
There are a lot of fun details to the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit. The fun of these types of kits really is in the particular details that add a sense of uniqueness to each kit.
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit includes tables, head table with seats, fireplace, 2 reversible house banners and 4 floating candles, food (turkey leg, ice cream and a small cake), brooms, trophy cup and a teapot.
The 4-level tower features a movable Grand Staircase with spiral steps at its base, potions room, treasure room with a chest, and a turret featuring the Mirror of Erised with changeable pictures and roosting spot for Fawkes.
You know who Fawkes is, right? Well, if you don't, your gift recipient will!
There also is a boat with a hanging lantern.
A fun thing to do is to put the students in the boat and sail them to Hogwarts castle.
Another fun thing to do is to have Hermione work with Susan to create some of her magical potions.
Hagrid and Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall can stand on the shore and greet the students as they cross over in the boat.
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit can be combined with the Hogwarts Whomping Willow (75953) to make an even bigger gothic locale.
