Funko has embraced the world of Harry Potter with a line of vinyl figures and an Advent calendar featuring J.K. Rowling's creations. Fans will soon have a new set of magical items to add to their collection: Harry Potter Funko POP! Pez dispensers modeled after their favorite characters are now available to preorder, according to Comicbook.

The line of Pez dispensers includes Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, and Dobby the house elf. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are each sporting the Sorting Hat, and Luna has on her colorful Spectrespecs. Unlike Harry Potter Pez dispensers released in the past, this set depicts the same button-eyed versions of the characters seen in the full-sized Funko POP! figurines.

The new products from Pez and Funko were announced at the London Toy Fair in late January. Funko teased a few more additions to their Harry Potter collection at the event, including new figures for their Vnyl line and a set of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Fawkes plush dolls, all of which are slated for release within the next few months.

To get your Harry Potter Pez dispensers when they're available on April 15, you can preorder them now on Amazon for $6 each. And while you're waiting for those to arrive, here are some more Harry Potter-themed products to browse.

Cook a Game of Thrones-Inspired Feast With This Video Tutorial

Tonight marks the series finale of Game of Thrones. Hosting a watch party? Consider skipping the chips and dip, and try whipping up a dish inspired by the show. In the video below, first spotted by Laughing Squid, Binging With Babish host Andrew Rea provides recipes for three foods featured in the fantasy series: Purple Wedding pigeon pie, Dothraki blood pie, and Sansa Stark’s lemon cake.

For the uninitiated, Binging With Babish is a YouTube tutorial channel that features Rea cooking—and in some cases, improving on—foods from popular movies and television shows. Game of Thrones's characters are likely better on the battlefield than they are in the kitchen, so Rea takes a few culinary liberties while recreating Medieval and Dothraki fare: His “pigeon pie” is made with squab, and the blood pie, in Rea’s own words, is “essentially a black pudding in pie form” that’s garnished with figs, goat cheese, and black sea salt.

Now You Can Wear Your Favorite Dunkin' Coffee Flavor as Nail Polish

Dunkin'—the coffee chain formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts—is getting into the beauty business. For a limited time, nail polish inspired by Dunkin's flavored coffees will be available at select nail salons across the country.

The nail polish line includes eight freshly brewed shades. Three pay homage to Dunkin's new signature lattes—cocoa mocha, caramel craze, and blueberry crisp—and three are inspired by the seasonal Baskin-Robbins ice cream-flavored coffees: butter pecan, pistachio almond fudge, and banana split. Nail polishes in Dunkin's iconic pink and orange color palette are also available.

The collection is a collaboration between Dunkin' and the vegan-friendly nail polish company Lauren B. Beauty. While supplies last, the products will be available at certain nail salons in 10 cities where Dunkin' operates, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Boston. Each purchase of the branded nail polish comes with a $3 Dunkin' gift card. To see if a salon in your area is participating, check out the map below.

Dunkin' isn't the first fast food chain to release its own nail polish line. In 2016, KFC released edible "finger-licking" nail polish that, yes, tasted like chicken.
