Now that the last Harry Potter movie has been released, are you feeling the need to re-enact scenes at home? Then you will need a wand, and how cool would it be if that wand could change channels on your TV? Well, the Kymera Magic Wand does just that!

UWHS Review - Kymera Wand 021

The Kymera Magic Wand is a universal remote control with a difference – its a wand, and a remote control.

There are 13 different gestures you can make with the wand, each one being able to be a specific remote control command.

Views of Dragons Den may remember this being on the show!

Once you open the first box, you find a beautiful second box holding the wand. It really does look like something out of Harry Potter. I had a good look at the box, but I couldn’t see an Ollivanders logo anywhere on it, so I think we are ok!

The wand sits inside this box, waiting for it new master to pick it up. Oh, and there are some cool instructions as well.

A Closer Look

The wand already contains the two batteries that are needed to power it (don’t remember seeing that in Harry Potter), and all you need to do is unscrew the end of the wand and remove the battery protector. When you do that the wand starts to vibrate – don’t worry, that is just the Practice mode.
