One of the hottest toys of the holiday season just made its debut in New York City.

As the official magic ambassador, Harris showcased the product — which recently secured a coveted spot on the Toy Insider‘s legendary Hot 20 List this year — for fans on social media. Check out the video below.

The Magic Mixies Magic Cauldron comes with everything that kids need to conjure up some fun. Kids add water and are prompted by the cauldron to add a variety of mystical ingredients that foam, bubble, and help create the Mixie — an interactive, magical pet — including sparkle for its eyes and a magic feather to give it wings. After all the ingredients are mixed into the potion, kids tap and wave the magic wand, say the magic words, “Magicus Mixus” and in a poof, an enchanting mist rises above the cauldron then clears to reveal a completely dry Mixie creature.

The Mixie lights up, makes sounds, and interacts with the wand. After revealing the Mixie, kids can make their own potions and recreate the mist with additional play modes.
