  Big money internet bids for Hogwarts Lego
Updated 29 November 2001, 17.36
Lego Hogwarts are really expensive on the internet
People who have bought the Lego Hogwarts castle set are making a fortune by selling the hit toy over the internet.

To buy a Hogwarts set from a shop would cost almost 80, but most shops say they are selling out of the toy as quickly as they can put them on the shelves.

Lego Hogwarts are selling out fast
Perhaps that's because people who have already bought one of the sets have realised they can make lots of money by selling it unopened.

One family has already spent over 300 on a Hogwarts Castle that they bought on the internet.

In fact, CBBC Newsround Online has discovered that there are more than 60 Lego Hogwarts sets on sale on the internet in Britain and America.

Lego: working 24 hours a day

On an auction site a person puts something up for sale and then after a chosen period of time, the person who offered the most money gets the toy.

Lego say their factories are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to try and meet demand.

But they are not sure when they'll be able to make their next big delivery of the sets to toyshops.
