Sorting Hat Pin – Value $5?
Each month always includes a themed pin. What better pin than the sorting hat for a house pride box!
Hogwarts Raglan – Value $20?
This month’s shirt is the same across all of the houses, it’s a Hogwarts raglan shirt displaying the crest and all of its houses.
This raglan/baseball shirt features baseball-shirt like sleeves with the raglan look.
It also includes the house mascots within the school crest. There’s a lot of discussion over the house mascot for Ravenclaw – according to the Harry Potter Wiki a Raven is used in the movie adaptation, but the Eagle is the mascot of the book source material.
Gryffindor Duffle Bag – Value $20?
This first house-specific item in the box is a duffle bag.
This will be customized with house colors and crest.
It’s got color piping to accent your house colors.
It comes with a shoulder strap as well, but no other pockets other than the bag itself. It’s a smaller duffle bag, I’d say it’s perfect for a trip to the gym where you’re carrying a change of clothes and some shoes – but that might be the extent of what could fit.
Gryffindor Beanie – Value $15?
I love the designs of these house beanies.
Like the duffel, this will be customized with your house colors and crest.
The all-around print of the house name is great – it’s my favorite part of this beanie! It’s really warm, too – and even though it’s technically Spring, I have a feeling there is still time to use this.
Hogwarts Express Lanyard – Value $5-10?
My first thought was, this is a bit generic for a house box, but then the description does make sense.
Every term, students board the Hogwarts Express on this journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Now you can show off your very own Hogwarts Express branded lanyard.
This is exclusive, but it doesn’t feel like something that you couldn’t buy somewhere else.
It’s detachable at the upper-neck.
And detachable at the badge – which can be useful at a Con.
Verdict: The only item I didn’t really care for in the box was the lanyard (I really don’t have much use for them in general), so overall this box was a success for Team Gryffindor! This is the type of stuff I had envisioned when I first heard about this box, so I’m excited to see what kind of customization might be coming down the line.
