WonderWitch is a line of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes products designed and marketed for witches. Every single one of the products were invented by Fred and George Weasley. Although they were soon banned from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with the rest of the Weasley Wizard Wheezes products, they could be sent in disguised as ordinary perfume or other such bottled products such as cough potions as a part of the mail order service.
HistoryThe display in the shop for WonderWitch was “violently pink,” and frequently visited by groups of giggling girls. When Fred showed it to Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley in the summer of 1996, they both hung back warily. Neither was interested in the cosmetic products or love potions, but Ginny ended up purchasing a Pygmy Puff that she had named Arnold.

Behind the scenes
- A prop made for the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince claims that WonderWitch products have been made since 1952. However, as the Weasley twins were born in 1978. It is possible that, within the fims, Fred and George did not invent the wonderwitch line, but merely sold the products. Another possibility is that the 1952 date is a mistake of the filmmakers.
- It may have been possible the name was inspired by the American superhero Wonder Woman, who has oft been considered one of the most reputable superheroines and inspiration to girls.
