—Slogan printed on the box of Reusable Hangman[src]

Reusable Hangman was a magical toy version of the traditionally pen-and-paper game hangman, developed by Fred and George Weasley and sold at their novelty shop, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. It consisted of a small, wooden man which climbed the stairs leading to a set of gallows with every letter missed. The product's box featured the slogan "Spell It Or He'll Swing!" When Harry Potter went to Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes in 1996, he saw a group of excited children crowded around this toy. [1]

Ginevra Weasley wanted to purchase a Reusuable Hangman in 1996, but they were sold out, with Sean Peakes having purchased the last one. She told Harry Potter and Hermione Granger about this during that school year. Harry offered to track down Sean and see if he would be willing to part with the Hangman. Incidentally, Sean was indeed willing to part ways with the toy, having suffered constant harassment by Slytherin students wanting the item for themselves, and traded the Hangman to Harry for three Stink Pellets. After receiving the Hangman, however, Ginny revealed to Harry she only wanted it for a friend.[2]
