Lego Harry Potter Years 5 – 7 Red Brick Guide


As with all Lego games, you can find some red bricks to unlock extras to help you while you play. In the world of Harry Potter, these bricks take the form of parcels that you must find and mail off using a post owl. When you have found a parcel and posted it, you can then go upstairs in the Leaky Cauldron to purchase them.

All you need to do then is to turn them on using the Extras menu, when you press start. If you need any help finding the locations listed below, you can view a map of the HUB here.
