  Sold! Two magic Harry Potter wands
Updated 08 October 2001, 12.03
Harry Potter cast
Two children somewhere in the world are in for a wizard Christmas.

A pair of wands from the Harry Potter film have been snapped up at auction for 12,500.

And the buyers have insisted on staying a secret because they plan to give the wands to their young relatives on December 25.

Magic

The carved wooden wands came in special boxes which had been signed by Harry Potter author, JK Rowling.

Written on the boxes is the phrase: "Remember: underage wizards must not use magic outside Hogwarts".

The wands were used in the first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which is out in the UK on 16 November.

JK Rowling donated the wands to the cancer charity, Maggie's Support Centre, which then auctioned them off to the highest bidder.
