Batteries (4x AAA) for The Magic Wand Remote Control

In Stock



Harry Potter might be a dab hand at casting spells but we’ve yet to see him use his wand to switch off Holby City, series link EastEnders or mute Jeremy Kyle mid-rant. And that’s because the annoying little brat has only got a wand, not the Wand.


The Wand: Watch a swish demo!

Utterly astounding, this beautifully crafted gizmo looks like the kind of thing you might find in Diagon Alley. The difference is you use it to control your telly, Sky, digibox, stereo or any other infra-red device via various abracadabra-ish gestures. Simply swish, whirl and flick to change channels, adjust volume and much more. Incredible! What Katie and Peter Did Next? *ZAP!* Who cares? Your swish really is its command.

Totally button-free, the Wand can ‘learn’ up to 13 infrared codes from your existing remote(s) and fling them into the ether when you perform one of 13 predefined gestures. It’s a kind of magic. Okay, it isn’t but making Vernon Kay vanish has never been such fun. Silencio Imbecilicus!

You can assign various functions to various moves: flicks to turn on and off; spins to control volume; big swishes to mute and so on. You’ll be flicking just for the fun of it. Better still, rival wizards will be unable to mess with the telly or digibox unless you show them your moves. Hocus flippin’ pocus!

To add to its supernatural nature, the Wand also features a ‘heartbeat’ in the form of various pulses that confirm gesture recognition and tell you when the batteries are low. It even goes into sleep mode after 60 seconds of inactivity and ‘wakes’ when you pick it up. It’s just like having a real magic wand, only you won’t have to wear a stupid cloak or marry Debbie McGee. Magic!


Comes in a smart presentation box

Gorgeously packaged in a smart presentation box, the Wand is set to become the remote control of choice for any gadgeteer with Potter-esque aspirations. So don’t be a Muggle, get ordering. It’s totally wizard!

Customer Reviews

Just curious, do you accept Galleons? Or even Sickles and Knuts. Its such a pain to get my money exchanged at Gringotts. The Goblins don't like me much!

Firebox says: Theres no need for that sort of language! Heh, we reckon you could just do a stupefy spell and get whatever you wanted!
I got this wand for Christmas, I Had it working for a few weeks. Now when I try and turn it on from sleep mode it doesn't work, I've tried new batteries and had no luck.

Firebox says: Og dear! please give us a shout on and we will try and sort this for you!
Hi Frebox! This sounds great and I'm definitely gonna buy it, but I was wondering if I can use this on my lights?
Hannah - 8th November 2011
Firebox says: Hi Hannah! You can programme the Magic Wand Remote Control to work with any other infra-red remote operated device. So if you already use a remote for your lights, then the answer is yes!
Does the wand Work with a SKY+HD box or just a normal SKY+ box????
Josh - 23rd July 2011
Firebox says: Should do Josh, we've not been able to test it.
Hi There - can this be programmed for more than one device at the same time ie can it do TV and Sky or is it either/or? cheers.
Karen19 - 30th June 2011
Firebox says: Because it 'learns' from an existing dedicated remote, it is more of an either/or situation Karen.
Is it complicated to tune in to your sky+ box and does it have instructions in the manual?
Cate - 11th June 2011
Firebox says: The instructions will help you get sorted easily Cate.
