The Fan Empire Subscription Box Review – June 2016
The Fan Empire is a subscription for fans! They have a rotating fandom or theme every month, and send 4-6 items such as posters, t-shirts, bookmarks and other items.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: The Fan Empire
The Cost: $14.95 + $3.50 shipping = $18.45 / month
The Products: Trinkets, accessories, and other gear supporting a different fandom or theme every month
Ships to: Everywhere
Good to Know: This package typically comes well past the end of the month. It doesn’t bother me, but I know that’s an issue for some people.

June’s theme is In a “Land Far, Far Away”! This is the information card that was included, detailing the package’s contents. My experience so far with this subscription has been that the pieces they send are impossible to find online for sale, so the values listed below are guesses on my part.
Hogwart’s House Crest Wallet – Value $20?
This wallet is not one of those flimsy paper deals we usually get in subscription boxes, this is a real wallet. I don’t think it’s leather, but it’s something similar in sturdiness for sure. This is really cute and my son was very happy to get it!
Hogwarts Travel Magnet – Value $2?
This magnet is cute, promoting Hogwarts as a tourist destination.
Hogwarts Express Keychain – value $7?
My eight-year-old was excited about this keychain, although I don’t think he (or I) fully understands all the symbology. He loves Harry Potter! And keychains!
Wonderland Charm Leather Necklace – Value $12?
This is very cute! I don’t have any personal attachment to Alice in Wonderland, but I think I will hold on to it until I find just the right person for it. I just know someone will love it.
Alice and White Rabbit Metal Bookmark – Value $5?
This type of metal bookmark is great for marking pages. It’s very cute, too! This will go to use instantly.
Verdict: This package from The Fan Empire was a good one for us! I have to say, I think it would be better if they picked one fandom per month and stuck with it, but if you’re a Harry Potter super fan you would clearly disagree with my opinion there. I can’t really comment too much on value because I’m unsure of my estimates, but I think you always get an awful lot for $18.45 every month with The Fan Empire.
