Hermione Granger is kids’ dream Halloween party guest

Harry Potter witch is children’s fantasy fright-night friend, survey reveals


With Halloween only a black cat’s whisker away, children throughout Britain have been brewing up ideas about their dream party guest – with Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger coming out on top.


The studious sorceress has been crowned the magical character children would most like to grace their Halloween party, taking 42% of the vote in a recent survey by MGA Entertainment.

The poll, which asked 500 children aged 8-15 a series of suitably spooky questions also found 11% would like to share some spooky shenanagins with Alex Russo from The Wizards of Waverly Place, while a surprising 8% would prefer to share a cup of witches brew with the Wicked Witch of the West.

Many of the children surveyed were also looking forward to taking part in traditional activities for Halloween, with 51% planning to go trick-or-treating, 38% going to a fancy-dress party and 21% staying in with a spooky film.

We bet Hermione would be a lucrative trick-or-treat companion – some of her tricks would surely be worth more than a handful of monkey nuts!
