Collect Studs
To gain the True Wizard status in each of the stages it is essential that you destroy every object you come across to get the the studs they yield as you will need them to purchase new characters or other bonuses that are available in the Diagon Alley, the shopping area located behind the Leaky Cauldron pub.

Search for Red Multiplier Bricks
It may not always be possible to get True Wizard status in a stage during your first playthrough. If this is the case you will need to replay the stage in order to get bonus items so you can get the required number of studs. Try to find all the Red multiplier bricks before replaying levels as these enable you to accumulate a lot of studs.

Check Character Actions
It is important to remember that not every character is able to perform all of the actions and that some of them possess unique skills which will help you in certain situations. Goblins for example carry the keys that are able to open lockers and characters who use Dark Magic can access areas that are not available to others.

How to get Reducto Spell
Reducto is a powerful spell that you learn from Mad-Eye Moody in the fourth year of the game. The Reducto spell can be used to blow up any Silver Objects or enemies. You will need to replay each stage a minimum of twice and then wait until the final year of the game to get all the collectibles before you can learn the Reducto spell.

Unlimited Ghost Studs
Whenever Nearly Headless Nick is floating still (and you have the Ghost Stud extra on), stand under him and he will constantly give you ghost studs.

How to find Bonus Items
If you are struggling to locate a specific bonus item in Lego Harry Potter - Years 1-4 you need to look for Red Bricks as these will point you towards it.
