Fictional characters are every where in a children’s life, from the TV to books, video games and even clothing. Does your child have a favourite? Are they a book worm, and do they have a favourite author?
Alana didn’t even have to even think about an answer when I asked her those 2 questions. Straight away she replied Harry Potter and J K Rowling! I recently took her for a day out at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour as she is absolutely besotted by the whole cast of Harry Potter. If you have your own little Harry Potter fan, I really recommend the Studio Tour and don’t forget to taste some of the famous ButterBeer available half way around the tour.
A recent survey carried out on 800 parents in UK showed 12% also have children who love Harry Potter with him taking the lead. The results of the survey were provided by Fancydressball.co.uk. Looking through the list I can see Harriets favourite character, Mickey Mouse. She loves MickeyMouse Club House on Disney Junior channel. Dominiks favourite is probably Thomas the Tank Engine, he has the train tracks and the DVDs.

Looking through the list of authors, I am quite surprised to see some classics like Enid Blyton and Terry Pratchett, these authors were my favourite as a child. What are your children’s favourite, can you see them in the list?
