I grew up with Harry Potter too (28 in April). I often have the films playing in the background, all 7. Thomas has never taken any notice of them. I hope he enjoys the series as much as I do one day.

Josh has seen bits and bobs of all of them. He never ever sits and watches a film in its entirety - even if its his favourite! - as he doesn't have the attention span

We live and breath Harry Potter in our house, my 9 year old watched the first one when he was 3 and he has been addicted ever since, he had watched them all by the time he was 5 and had read all the books by the time he was 8. Declan is very mature for his age and he has watched a lot of things that he shouldnt (caught him watching predator the other night :O ) but if there is anything he doesnt understand he will always ask us so I am happy for him to watch what he wants.

Me and my 2 potter obsessed sisters are all Ravenclaws. My sister even has an amazing Ravenclaw quiditch outfit she had made for a comicon type thing she went to.

Maybe I need to have LO do the test on pottermore to find out her house.

I think it depends on your child. My DD is 8.5 and in no way is she ready for the films or the books. She is a highly sensitive child (and always has been) and she does not do scary stuff. At all haha. And that's okay.

My son is 4.5 and not ready for HP either though I do think he will be ready before her as he's not nearly as sensitive.

We love HP so I am looking forward to the eventual day when the kids can read/watch them but we just aren't there yet.

Well, we carried on and gave them the choice to watch or not. We've now watched all the films and they were fine with them all! The biggest reaction was when Hermione and Ron kissed!

We plan to buy them their own set of the books for Christmas

I don't think any of them are suitable for my almost 6 year old. X

We have also watched them all since you posted. My dd loves them too, and actually understood most of it too (I found it quite confusing as I haven't read the books, so it's quite alot for a little mind to process!)
I may have to steal your idea and buy them for my daughters Christmas too

We've watched the first two films now and currently reading book four. Lucas has told us he won't watch any more of the films until he's older because he thinks they'll be too scary for him but he's happy to carry on with the books... I'm hooked now so I'll have to watch without him
