As most aspiring wizards and witches know, getting your first wand is a really big deal. And the good news is, you don’t need to be a student at Hogwarts™ to find your perfect fit. All you need to do is stop by Ollivanders™: Makers of Fine Wands since 382 BC at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ - Hogsmeade™. This shop has been in the magic business for a long time, so they know a thing or two about crafting the perfect wand.
Of course, there’s more to it than just walking in, picking up the first wand that sparks your interest, and trying to cast some quick spells. Your wand says a lot about you, so you’ll want to do some research to make sure you choose the right one (or, rather, the right one chooses you!).
Luckily, this quick quiz can help determine which wand is right for which witch, and what type of wizard you truly take after
