Millennial Parents Are Sorting Their Babies into Hogwarts Houses on TikTok—Here’s How

If you’re a Harry Potter fan like us, you’ve probably tried to figure out which Hogwarts House you would belong to if they existed. Are you a Gryffindor like Harry and Hermoine? Or perhaps a Slytherin like Draco Malfoy? Of course, we can’t forget about Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

In Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone, the young witches and wizards arrive at Hogwarts for the new semester. However, the new class must be sorted into their respective Houses—think of them like teams—by the famous Sorting Hat, once owned by Hogwarts founder Godric Gryffindor.

Now, twenty years after the original film was released in theaters, a trend has seemingly made its way onto TikTok with Millennial parents sorting their babies into houses. Of course, they aren’t using a Sorting Hat. Instead, the trend includes placing a baby—specifically, one that is nine and three-quarter months old—on the floor in front of items representing each house. Whichever one the child crawls toward determines their house placement.

See a few examples below.

The trend has become so popular, in fact, that even Vanderpump Rules star, Stassi Schroeder, gave it a shot with her daughter, Hartford, who she shares with husband, Beau Clarke. Baby Hartford seemingly went right to Gryffindor, which was fitting since her dad was also wearing a Gryffindor shirt.

Genius or way too extra? (We're going with genius.)
