This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Fred's-Box-April-2017-Box

Fred’s Box is a monthly subscription box that mails assorted minifigures which are compatible with Legos. Fred’s Box is also available as a one-off purchase if you don’t want a subscription. From Fred’s Box:

The boxes are aimed at children aged between 5 and 14 years old but also appeal to adults as a geek box (these are not suitable for kids under the age of 3 due to small parts). All minifigures are compatible with leading brands of building blocks.

Harry Potter Look-Alike Minifigure – Value $4.00?

This minifigure looks just like Harry down to the lightning bolt scar on his forehead. He came with a broom to hold. I love his spectacles.

Fred's-Box-April-2017-Dumbledore

Dumbledore Look-Alike Minifigure – Value $4.00?

I am assuming this minifigure is meant to be Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series. I love his long hair and beard. He looks very different my son’s other minifigures. He liked him a lot.

Blond Girl Minifigure – Value $4.00?

I’m not sure who this character is meant to be, her outfit and hair look normal but her face has a very unique (creepy) look to it. Does anyone know who this is?

Boy Minifigure Minifigure – Value $4.00?

This boy had removable reddish hair and a preppy sweater vest.

Fred's-Box-April-2017-Girl3

Girl Minifigure – Value $4.00?

This girl had long reddish hair, a zip up jacket and cool zipper details on the pockets of her pants. I’m not sure what the marking on her face under her eyes are meant to be.

Boy Minifigure – Value $4.00

This last boy also had reddish hair and was wearing a fancy suit and tie. I like how his eyebrow color matches his hair!

Verdict: My son loved his Fred’s Box! He was so excited to open the box and look at each minifigure. Some came with a plain stick to hold (Harry Potter had a much cooler broom) and he would love to see a greater variety of accessories in future boxes. I think the assortment of male and female characters and some recognizable characters, as well as some generic people, was very nice. The quality of the minifigures is wonderful. For approximately $18.16 USD ($14.40 USD for the box plus $3.76 USD shipping), we received an estimated $24 worth of minifigures. We are looking forward to our next box!

  1. I love how each character’s facial expressions match who they are. Harry looks frustrated, Luna looks perplexed/confused, and all the Weasley’s are smiling & happy! It totally fits each of them! That’s a great little detail that not everyone will catch if they aren’t familiar with the books/movies. Overall, I like this box. I just wish their wands had a bit more detail… just a stick? They could have at least painted some detail on them!

  2. I think the stick to hold is meant to be a wand 😉
    But they didn’t want them to get lost so made them giant instead of proportional

  3. The dots under Ginny’s eyes are probably meant to be freckles.

    I’m lol’ing reading this with the author not recognizing HP characters. These are really cute though!

  4. Are these lego licensed figures or just fit the same mold as legos? The blond girl is luna, the red head boys are probably Ron and the Fred/George. The last redhead girl is ginny 😊

    • Hi, no these are not Lego minifigures, however, they are compatible with all types of building blocks 🙂

  5. These are all Harry Potter Minifigures! Harry, Dumbledore, Luna, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, and one of the Weasley twins, either Fred or George!!! So cute!!!

    • I actually thought the last one was Professor Lockhart?

  6. Blonde is luna lovegoode, redheads are ginny & 2 other weasleys

    • Thanks for the help figuring out the others. Nice job!
