A Leaping Toadstool is a magical, sentient mushroom which has the ability to jump.

Description

Leaping Toadstools can be used as ingredients in Potion-making when chopped, such as in Baruffio's Brain Elixir.[1] They cost three Galleons at the Apothecary in Diagon Alley, and can be found in the Forbidden Forest.[2]

History

In 1993, Ernie Macmillan asked Harry Potter to hand him a bucket filled with these toadstools during a Herbology class in their second year.[3]
