Gambol and Japes Wizarding Joke Shop is a shop located in South Side, Diagon Alley. It sells a wide range of joke items and other stuff serving mainly as an entertainment. It is presumably the favourite shop of Fred and George Weasley, and Lee Jordan. It was there that they stocked up on Dr Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks in 1992.[1] It is run by a man with a white beard and moustache. It was located between Obscurus Books and Twilfit and Tattings.[2]

Etymology
