I bought this set for my son. Great set for a fan of both chess and the Potter series. The pieces are plastic which makes it lightweight but the pieces are nice and sturdy. The board is very nice also. My son loves it... we agree that it would make a nice gift. We got our set on AMazon but it the same one. I would buy again.
These boards are very accurate to the real boards in the movies or books. I love Harry Potter and I love these chess boards
