While the intro box had some Fantastic Beasts items, this one is ALL about Harry Potter. You get to pick your house when you sign up, but that information wasn’t used this month – but, March’s delivery will be the first month to send items based on your house!
You’ll find a scroll in the box to unroll and reveal the items (and possible variants) in your box!
Like all Loot Crate subscription boxes, it will include a monthly pin. This month’s pin is much larger than normal – it’s a Prophecy Pin!
Professor Snape “Always” Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt features everyone’s favorite – Snape. It’s a pretty straightforward design – I like the design of the smoke in the background of the portrait.
Funko POP – Luna Lovegood – Value $9 on Amazon
You’ll be getting a POP vinyl figure this month as well. You could receive Hermoine (Yule Ball Variant), Ron (Yule Ball Variant), Luna Lovegood, of Sirius Black.
I still don’t have many Harry Potter POPs – so this one is new to my collection!
Time-Turner Necklace – Value $10-15?
This month includes Hermione’s favorite piece of jewelry – a Time-Turner Necklace.
Hermione used this to get to all of her many classes in The Prisoner of Azkaban – and also used it, with Harry, to save Sirius and Buckbeak.
The necklace itself is just a felt strap with a latch. Nothing too special about that, but the pendant could be pulled off and added to your keys or another necklace.
Deathly Hallows Pocket Watch – Value – $10-15?
You’ll get an exclusive pocket watch featuring the Deathly Hallows.
While it’s not the highest quality watch – it’s definitely serviceable and unique, showcasing the Deathly Hallows on the outside and inside body of the watch.
Platform 9 3/4 Socks – Value $10?
These are my absolute favorite type of sock that Loot Crate produces – the socks are made from 82% Polyester/16% Cotton/2% Spandex and go through a different printing process that allows them to get much more detail on the sock.
They’re modeled after the gateway to Hogwarts Express – platform 9 3/4! These socks will fit snuggly on your foot and will stay up on your leg with much more ease.
Verdict: I’m a big fan of this month’s POP and socks – but the wearable items weren’t really my style. The value is still really good for a $35 box, though – and I think bi-monthly is the right cadence for each theme. I was curious how they’d handle the first theme that didn’t revolve around an upcoming movie – and it does make me excited to see future themes – and I can’t wait for the house-specific box in March!
