LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Walkthrough Red Brick Location Guide (XBOX 360, PS3, Wii)


Today we bring you the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Walkthrough Red Brick Location. Red Bricks like all the previous Lego game are used to unlock all the goodies there are a total of 20 Red Bricks. The good thing about finding all the Red Bricks is that they are all located in Hogwart’s so no need to search all in all the levels to find theme. When you find a standing Owl post nearby be sure theres a Red Brick around since you need the owl to send the Red Brick back to Hedwig. Once you’ve obtained a Red Brick you can find it on the second floor of the owl emporium in Diagon Alley, so that they can be purchased.

In order to find all the Red Bricks you must unlock at least one person form each of the four houses. But the ones you really are going to need are the Griphook and Goblin. But the more you have the better as you will need the various spells. Well let dive right in and find this Red Bricks. Video Coming Soon.

    Hi Yolanda
    I too have to get Rita Skeeter but reading the glitches I must have gone into another room and come back to no fountain and also the character seems to have gone. Is there any help like a code? Can’t finish the game without her.

    My son is 6 years old and plays this game. I do not know anything so I will do my best to explain what he is asking. He says that the ghost just keeps clapping instead of showing him where to go? Ive read something about red bricks and being an evil character? He just says this blue ghost wont stop clapping! can someone explain it in 6 year old terms!?
