  Kids go mad for Harry Potter Lego
Updated 28 November 2001, 21.57

Kids are so desperate to get their hands on Harry Potter Lego that parents are being forced to pay huge prices.

Mums and dads are so keen not to disappoint their children this Christmas that they have resorted to paying up to four times what the Lego sets should cost in the shops.

Supplies of the toys are selling out as soon as they are put on the shelves, even though Lego staff are working 24 hours a day to get more out in time for Christmas.

Hogwarts Castle

But some parents have turned to the Internet to buy the Lego.

One Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle Lego set sold for 321, when the shop price is just 79.99.9.
