"I need to visit Zonko's. I'm nearly out of Stink Pellets"
Fred Weasley regarding Zonko's[src]

Zonko's Joke Shop was a wizarding joke shop located in the wizarding village of Hogsmeade, Scotland.[2] It was favourite place for Hogwarts students to shop on Hogsmeade trips as it carried "jokes and tricks to fulfil even Fred and George Weasley's wildest dreams."

Products sold at Zonko's were: Dungbombs, Hiccough Sweets, Frog Spawn Soap, Sugar Quills, and Nose-Biting Teacups.[1] In the 1980s, it was owned by Bilton Bilmes.[3]

History

Jacob's sibling visited this location frequently, most often to plan pranks. They were often accompanied by friends, such as Nymphadora Tonks and Tulip Karasu, both of whom were interested in pranks.[3]

When Professor Snape caught Harry in the corridor of Hogwarts at night with the Marauder's Map, he was sceptical of Harry's story that it was a Zonko's product, but Professor Lupin and Ron backed Harry up on his lie.[1]

During the events surrounding Lord Voldemort's second rise to power, Zonko's was closed and boarded up. Fred and George visited Hogsmeade with an eye towards the possibility of buying the premises and turning it into a Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes outlet shortly before Ron Weasley got accidentally poisoned, after which they decided that it won't do them any good if Hogwarts students weren't allowed in Hogsmeade due to Katie Bell's incident.[4]
