I am very excited to share with you today my Wizarding World Crate that I just got in. I bought this box back in November, but since it was bi-monthly and I didn't get in the time frame for the November box, I ended up getting the January box instead, and I am so glad that I did.
Loot Crate recently released this new bi-monthly subscription box based on the wonderful world of Harry Potter, and being the huge Harry Potter fan that I am, I had to pick one up for myself. The box presents licensed merchandise from the Harry Potter universe, and Loot Crate creates some of the items themselves to bring you one of a kind products.
As I mentioned before, this box is bi-monthly. This means that you receive a box every 2 months, rather than every month, and the box is $34.95 +shipping/bi-monthly. This box does sell out fast, however, so if you are interested in getting it, I highly suggest that you pick it up as soon as you can! You can purchase your very own box here.
And now, onto the good stuff!
Upon opening the box, you are greeted with a scroll that outlines all of the items included in that month's box. I love the detail that goes into this item list, and it is an item list that I will be keeping. I particularly liked the descriptions of the different items and the fact that most of the items were created exclusively for the box.
Each loot crate comes with an exclusive t-shirt, and this month's t-shirt was of Severus Snape with the classic “After all this time? Always” quote. Severus Snape is one of my favorite characters of all time, and I about cried when I saw this shirt. It is absolutely perfect, and by far my favorite item from the box. Also, you can never have enough Harry Potter t-shirts.
The second item included were these Hogwarts Express socks. They are almost knee high and I love how classic they look. I am always a sucker for socks, so this item was a winner for me.
In this month's box, there were multiple jewelry items included. The first jewelry item was this Deathly Hallows pocket watch. Pocket watches are one thing that I love collecting, and this item was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised that the inner watch was as intricately designed as the outer cover, and the quality is extremely good.
The next jewelry item included was this time turner necklace. I have to say that this was my least favorite item in the box because the time turner looks a bit cheap and it looks nothing like the classic time turner necklace. I have a couple of time turner necklaces myself, and this one just falls too much on quality for me. It is on a black cord and I'll probably just use it as a bookmark.
The last jewelry item included was this prophecy pin. Like the pocket watch, it is very high quality and I adore how unique it is. I have never seen a piece of jewelry that resembles this landmark in the Harry Potter series, and I will be pinning it to my book bag.
The last item included was a Yule Ball Hermione Granger Pop Figure. I collect Pop figures, so I was very excited to receive this one! I only have Severus Snape and Hagrid otherwise, and it was nice to receive a figure that I didn't have. However, I am sure that many other Harry Potter fans received duplicates because these figures are so common with collectors. That is the only criticism I have with including this item since it is so popular otherwise.
Overall, I was very impressed with my first Wizarding World Box! I thought that it was well worth the money, and there was only one piece in the box that I could have done without. I think that this box is worth it for Harry Potter fans as long as you don't avidly buy Harry Potter merchandise otherwise. That way you won't run into the possibility of receiving duplicate items, and you will receive some items that you might not have found otherwise!
