With the last delivery focus on the Dark Arts – this month’s delivery work to even the scale and focuses on the hero of J.K. Rowling’s universe!

This month’s box design is a fun one as well! Fold the lid to set the scene.

You’ll get this white sheet of perforated paper.

You can cast a Patronus on the box itself! This might be the best design yet!

Have you found your own Patronus? You can reveal yours on Pottermore!

My little animal guardian is a Badger!

OK – on to the contents of the box – pop open this envelope to reveal the items in your box.

Inside, you’ll find information on each item.

Marvolo’s Ring Enamel Pin – $5-10

Each month includes an exclusive themed pin – and each one arrives in its own little packaging.

This month’s pin features the second Horcrux – Marvolo Gaunt’s ring.

Counter Curse Shirt – Value $15?

Each delivery also comes with an exclusive shirt. This month’s shirt features an ad for a counter curse to protect yourself from the dark arts.

Professor Snape’s Premium Wand Pen – Value $15?

You’ll get a pen that is a die cast resin replica of Snape’s wand!

I’m loving the presentation here – it arrives in an Ollivander’s box – while it’s smaller, it does remind me of buying a wand from Universal Studios!

Here is the replica want with the cap off. In the spoilers, this looked like it wouldn’t be practical to write with – but sometimes the spoilers don’t show it all!

The handle is actually a resin cap. The pen itself has a really nice weight to it, since it’s die cast resin, so it feels great in your hand when you’re using it. This is one of my surprise favorites of the month,

Defence Against the Dark Arts Journal – Value $10?

To go with your new pen, you’ll get a 5.5 x 3.5 journal.

It’s got a nice faux leather cover.

The front and back pages reveal a few fun Harry Potter extras.

The other 96 pages are a normal ruled notebook.

Guardians of Hogwarts Bookends – Value $20?

The last item in the box is definitely one of the highlights – your very own Hogwarts Guardians to guard your books.

Each one is made of a thin, but durable, metal – it’s definitely thick enough to hold a lot of books.

These bumpers on the bottom are also pretty important to keep it from sliding as your collection grows.

The front has the look of a sketch – which is a great look for these, it gives it a bit of a 3D feel.

Verdict: This delivery was much better than the Dark Arts box for me – the items were all pretty fun, but at the same time, they’re pretty practical. In my opinion, Loot Crate’s franchise boxes (Halo, Firefly) are some of its best boxes, so I was happy to see this was another box in the win column for me.

What do you think of the July 2017 ‘Defence Against the Dark Arts’ J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World Crate?

  1. The bookends are real quality items. And perfect for holding our book collection! Very impressed!

  2. I just have to say, it’s a Dumbledore’s Army notebook, not a DADA notebook lol this is honestly one sub I wish I could splurge on 😩

  3. I almost canceled my sub before this box, as I hadn’t been happy with the quality of the items. If they’ve turned things around and stay in this direction, though, I’ll be happy! I’m really enjoying this one- keeping everything except the pin.

  4. In love with this box *_*

  5. I’m sad that I canceled before this box. This looks like a lot of great items that I would have absolutely used. The last 2 boxes were total crap for me, with the exception of the shirts. I hope I can swap for the bookends at least.

  6. i had wanted to sub to this box when it was first announced last year……alas, i had to give up practically all my subs due to finances. once i saw the spoilers for the boxes, i didn’t feel too left out – that is until this box. the FOMO is real! and by the way, my patronus is a cat which is incredibly surprising as i am NOT a cat person! also, i was placed in slytherin.

  7. I love this box – sad I missed it!
