Its £15 price tag makes it more expensive than most on the market, but its wizarding theme and the fact it can be used again and again could make it a hit.

It certainly seems popular with fans of the Harry Potter series of books and films.

Primark shared a video of the product on its official Instagram account, writing in the caption: "Fresh from Platform 9¾, our Harry Potter Hogwarts Express advent calendar has arrived into selected stores.

"Fill the drawers with whatever magical treats you like and wait patiently for the start of December... Anyone else now ridiculously excited to start the Christmas countdown already?! Advent Calendar £15/€17."

Safe to say, the shop's followers were all over it, as one commented: "Oh my goddddd I need this!!!"

A third wrote simply, "I want this" along with a heart-eyes emoji.
