This is the theme card and the magnet for this month, and I have to admit that I’m kind of stumped. It’s usually pretty clear, but I think this month’s theme is just fairy tales? The magnet is a pretty cool picture of the Hogwart’s Express.
This is the back of the postcard (above). One thing you might notice about the postcard is that there is no information given about the items included. 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.
Every month’s goodies are usually all packaged in a little muslin bag with a graphic related to the theme.
Castle Earrings – Value $10?
These earrings definitely have that Once Upon a Time feel to them. I think my little niece will love these! They’re really unusual.
Tree Ring – Value $10?
This is a kind of cool, adjustable ring. It’s a tree! I don’t get the reference, though! Just because the woods are the scary place where all the fairy tales take place?
Hogwarts House Crests Bracelet – Value $22?
This bracelet is nice and heavy and colorful! I think this would be perfect for a hardcore Harry Potter Fan!
Mother Nature Holographic Necklace – value $20?
Is that Mother Nature? I’m not totally sure. I kind of don’t understand this piece, unfortunately.
Verdict: I think Fandom of the Month Club is great! That being said, I don’t fully understand this month’s package,
it seemed kind of unfocused to me, personally.
UPDATE: Since I’m not a Harry Potter fan, I first thought this box seemed unfocused. But thanks to MSA readers, I now know everything in this box meets the Harry Potter theme – it just isn’t a fit for me.
The first time I received a package from them, it was for a fandom that I don’t really belong to. I want to point out what Fandom OTM Club says on their website about this issue:
“If you are a person who would be devastated by receiving merchandise from a fandom you don’t love, sadly this club is not for you. We hate turning people away, but we hate upsetting people even more!”
Very well said! It’s the risk you run when you’re a subscription box addict! In terms of value, I have no idea if my guesses are correct, but it seems like a great value for under $20 to me.
