Great Novelty Item
Great item for what it is. Novelty factor wears of quickly but great for die hard fans.
Great fun bought for a friend for her 50th.
Good quality, it was a little small but is supposed to be for children. I bought this for my friend who is Harry Potter mad. It was great fun everybody trying it on to see which house they were in. It looked good and good quality material.
the hat is amazing
I would 100% recommend to people it's such a good had my little sister loved it
The supplier has advised.
It has one phrase introducing the sorting hat and what it does i.e. encouraging the listener to try it on…
Then it has one phrase for each house…(4 houses – 4 phrases).
Each cycle takes between 20 and 30 seconds to run through the introduction and then at random allocate the house.
Hope that helps but if I tell the customer the phrases it negates the need to buy the item and its part of the “magic”.
Thank you for using Argos Q & A.

Our supplier is reluctant to confirm the phrases that it says as it kind of ruins the magic of the item.
They have however confirmed that the phrases feature the movie voice and they are played at random following a standard introduction reminding the wearer that they can be entered into one of four houses.
The hat then pauses…thinks…and considers which house the wearer should be placed in.
There is a phrase which “magically” reads the traits of the wearer before proclaiming they should join one of Ghryffindor, Slytherin, Huffle Puff or Ravenclaw.
The allocation of the houses is randomised so when used in group interaction you will not be able to predict the house due to what has been said before.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in replying and thank you for using Argos Q&A.
