World of Wizardry November 2017 Review
In each box from Geek Gear, you will find a handy booklet listing all of the products inside. In addition to the products, you will also find a clue for an item in next month’s box and a “Subscriber Spotlight” featuring a community member.
They don’t usually include a separate information card like this one, so this must be a big deal because of the holidays!
Holiday Greeting Cards
Are these adorable or what?! I love that the one has an image of a sock in it, since it’s for a house elf. These are nice quality cards and perfect to gift to another HP-lover in your life. I certainly will be doing so!
Licensed Dobby Rubber Keychain
I, personally, have too many keyrings on my keychain at the moment, not to to mention the five keys I have for my apartment and my car key. Whew, that’s a lot of keys. That being said though, this little Dobby rubber keychain is so adorable! This might be something I end up gifting to one of the kids in my life. Maybe one of them can put it on their backpack.
Christmas House Elf T-Shirt
Oh my goodness, look how adorable this Christmas t-shirt is! The graphic of Dobby holding his freedom-giving sock with a Santa hat on… too cute! I like the Fair-Isle-inspired style of the design, too.
Licensed Hogwarts House Print
I have received a similar print in the past with that watercolor style. These are modern and a pretty cool addition to any fan’s collection. At this point, I could create an awesome gallery wall featuring mostly Harry Potter prints.
House Diadem Brooch
As soon as I took out this brooch, I knew exactly what it was… Rowena Ravenclaw’s lost diadem. This is a really pretty piece and definitely something that you could pin to your fave jacket for a touch of whimsical glamour.
Wizards Chess Piece Figure
I think it’s cool that this subscription includes a unique figurine in each box, but to be honest, I am not sure what to do with these. I have a couple on my bookshelf, but I have a small apartment, and there just isn’t room for all of these tchotchkes at the moment. Perhaps when I have a house, I will make room for some fun stuff!
This week, this beanie could not be more useful! It’s super cold, and I love the idea of having a fun hat to wear around. It’s certainly a talking point. Unfortunately, I can’t do hats too much because of my curly hair. Two words: flat & frizzy. On a day when I don’t wash my hair (it happens) I will throw on this adorable little beanie!
Verdict: Because this box was sent out with a slightly holiday theme right before the holidays, I wish that they would have gone full throttle with the theme. Christmas at Hogwarts, while ironic, is still a super magical time and something that we would all love to experience (in our dreams anyway). I think this could have been better, but maybe the December box will be more themed. I think my favorite item is a toss-up between the beanie and the t-shirt. I still get very excited to see what’s next in each GeekGear box, so that’s a positive for any subscription!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Monthly boxes ship between 21st and 24th each month.
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $34.90 USD for this box (the price + my shipping cost), which means that each of the 8 items in the box has an average cost of $4.36.
