This month dove into a bit of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Harry Potter – the delivery felt like a collection of items for back to school – except for Hogwarts!

The box flips and turns into a Hogwarts bound suitcase – that goes well with the must-haves to go back to school!

As always, it comes with a little faux-sealed envelope that contains all the information you’ll need.

The card details every item in your box.

Salazar Slytherin’s Locket Enamel Pin – $5-10

Each month includes an exclusive themed pin – and each one arrives in its own little packaging. They started a Horcrux pin series a few boxes back and continue it with this locket!

Hogwarts House Scarf – Value $25+

When you sign up, you’ll choose your house – this is only the second delivery where I believe that has mattered.

This is such a nice and cozy scarf! It’s about 86 inches long, so it’s HUGE.

It’s 100% acrylic and really soft – it’s hot out today, but I’m still wearing this just because it’s so cozy!

Your scarf will be customized to your house with its colors and this sewn on crest.

Harry Potter’s Wand Pen – Value $15?

Last delivery, we received Professor Snape’s pen – and this month that series continues with a replica Harry Potter wand/pen!

Even the boxes are super nice and collectible – but the pens themselves are really nice.

The handle is actually a little resin cap for your pen when not in use. The pen has a great weight to it and writes smoothly – there’s really not much more I’d want from a pen.

Honeyduke’s Eraser Set – Value $15?

This might be the most fun item in the box – and, for me, the most fun item I’ve received from this subscription.

Again, the packaging is pure fun, mimicking a Honeyduke’s candy box!

Inside, you’ll get for erasers that look like the candies from the books/movies!

It includes a chocolate frog, sugar skull, jelly slug, and cauldron cake – some look good enough to eat! I don’t really use a ton of erasers, but I might keep this set as-is for display.

MACUSA Desk Supply Set – Value $15?

The final item is really a few little items, and the only item featuring Fantastic Beasts.

In the set, you’ll get a MACUSA manilla folder, a 7.5×3.5 notepad, post-it notes, and 2 paper clips.

Bust out that new Harry Potter pen with your new notepad! While it’s a basic notepad, I do really like the page designs.

You’ll also get these sticky notes – they could be a fun way to stick up some chores or to-dos with noted urgency.

These are listed as paperclips, but I think they’ll be best used as book page markers!

They’re decently thick, so I think they’ll hold up well over time.

The final item is this MACUSA folder.

While this is definitely usable, it might be a little less practical than the other 3 items – still a fun little item to bring you into the movie’s universe.

Verdict: There was a lot of disappointment with this box when the spoilers first popped up, but I think this is the most fun I’ve had with a Wizarding World box yet. I’m loving the scarf and pen (I’m am a collector after all), and while I won’t use the erasers, they’re so unique looking that it’ll go on display! The item I liked least was the supply set – but the items are usable and stuck well to the theme – so I’m not too down about that either.

What do you think of the September 2017 ‘Magical Must Haves’ J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World Crate?

  1. This is the first box I’ve received and I was overall delighted with it. I’d say my least favourite item is the scarf, only because I’m a Ravenclaw and adhere pretty strongly to the book colours/animal. That said, it’s really nice quality. I plan to make my husband wear it at an upcoming wizarding festival we’re attending.

  2. My scarf came hanging out of the box and unraveling. I emailed them and they are sending me a new one so I’m happy about that. It feels like it will be super nice once I get one that isn’t shredded lol.

  3. I will definitely be looking to swap for the HP wand pen AND the scarves (Slytherin & Ravenclaw)!

    Hope some people put them up for swap… 😉

  4. Finally! My kids loved their crate this time. Yay!

  5. The Cauldron cake eraser is what the old CC at Wizarding World looked like! The new ones aren’t as cute. :/

    Those erasers are adorable though (even though I’d be tempted to eat them 😉 )
