If you're closer to Weasley than Malfoy when it comes to galleons, you might need to break into Gringotts before attempting to buy one of the cute new plush Nifflers now available.
"Harry Potter" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" author J.K. Rowling tweeted the good news for fans who want their own stuffed versions of the shiny-treasure-loving "Beast." However, U.S. fans will have to go the extra mile on shipping costs.

Over at Platform 9 3/4, you can pre-order a Niffler Plush for £35, which is just over $43. However, as CinemaBlend calculated, U.S. fans will also have to pay an extra £20 (just over $24) for packaging. So this stuffed animal is on the expensive side, unless you're one of those people who regularly spends big bucks trying to win "free" stuffed prizes at fairs. For you, this might be a bargain.
According to the site, the Niffler is approximately 22cm, and delivery is estimated for the start of May.
Maybe if you just start leaving shiny bits of jewelry outside you can attract your own Niffler without having to pay for shipping.
