"You can laugh, but people used to believe that there are no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack."
— Luna Lovegood[src]

The Blibbering Humdinger was one of the many strange creatures that Luna Lovegood believed to exist. It is possible that, like Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, they may not actually be real.

Luna first mentioned the Blibbering Humdinger in Harry's fifth year to Lavender Brown and Parvati Patil who were laughing at her earrings.[1] At the end of the Second Wizarding War, in order to give Harry some peace, she distracted everyone in the Great Hall by pretending to see one of these creatures.[2]
