World of Wizardry December 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. Now, they are even including prices!
3D Bookmark – Listed Value $9.45
On the one hand, I have plenty of bookmarks now, but this exclusive 3D one is super cool. Again, I am more of a fold one page down or a small bookmark, but this would be great for a kid. I think I will gift this one to my nephew.
Cookbook Binder + Three Recipes – Listed Value $12.15
This is a fun and unique item, definitely not something I have received from these before. This cookbook binder contains 3 recipes: Harry’s Birthday Cake, Golden Snitch Cake Pops, and Butterscotch Hot Chocolate. Basically, it’s the makings for the perfect Harry Potter inspired party!
House Item T-Shirt – Listed Value $13.50
This Gryffindor t-shirt featuring the sword Godric Gryffindor is such a cool take on house pride. All of the house t-shirts have images of the Horcruxes from each house/house founder on them. The graphic is super cool and I am glad the t-shirt is black for once!
Bowtruckle Print – Listed Value $6.74
It doesn’t really feel like this particular item fits in with the rest of the box because Bowtruckles’ play a prominent role in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, not necessarily in Harry Potter….though I do believe they are mentioned. Besides that small fact, I love the style of these prints!
Luna Necklace – Listed Value $9.45
This heavy duty silver necklace featuring Luna Lovegood’s famous Spectrespecs is unique and super cute. It appears to be an 18-inch chain so it’s not too short or long. The chain is sturdy and the pendant is well-made. Really cool piece!
Ron’s Wand – Listed Value $20.26
Finally, one of the main character’s wands! While this is the fully intact version of Ron’s wand, it’s fun and super sturdy. Really, I imagine this is what the wand’s on the set of the movies would be made of. These are not going to break easily so cast spells to your heart’s content.
Verdict: While this is definitely one of the better boxes I have received from GeekGear, I am a little disappointed because I would have liked to have seen a Christmas inspired box since this is the December box. For anyone who is a fan, Christmas at Hogwarts is an extra magical and special time of year so that would have been nice to see reflected in this month’s box. That being said, I was still impressed with the selection in this month’s box anyway. The cookbook was a nice addition as well as Ron’s wand. Overall, a good value for the cost!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the January box. Monthly boxes ship between 21st and 24th each month.
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $27.06 USD + $8.11 USD shipping cost, which means that each of the 6 items in the box has an average cost of $5.86.
