Accio! February 2018 Review
I love that the box card is styled as a mini-issue of The Daily Prophet! It lists all the goodies within this box. This month’s theme is candy since February is usually a pretty sweet month!
Honeydukes Candy Jar – Listed Value $15.00
The first item I unwrapped (and the reason for the “fragile” sticker on this box), was this wooden-lidded glass jar! It’s so cute, and actually quite well engineered. The lid fits nice and tight, which means this could store food and keep things really fresh! I think I’ll find something really colorful to display in here and leave it out on my kitchen countertop!
“Cursed Child” House Banner Cookie Cutter – Listed Value $8.00
I’m absolutely bananas for cookie cutters, so I was delighted to find this in the box! I always make a huuuuge batch of cut-out sugar cookies for the holidays, and I am not picky about the theme of the cut-outs. Some of my more random ones include a lobster, unicorn, and a foot. Festive, no? I made the conscious decision to not read “Cursed Child,” but I have no problem adding this cookie cutter to my collection!
Chocolate Frog Enamel Keychain – Retail Value $14.00
Keychains aren’t usually my favorite item to receive in subscription boxes, but this enamel beauty made me seriously reconsider! Combining a gorgeous design with really high-quality execution, I was actually really happy to receive this and may just put my keys on it.
Chocolate Frog Soap – Listed Value $8.00
I couldn’t stop giggling with delight the entire time I unwrapped this! The packaging had very clear instructions to not eat this, and I could definitely see mistaking this little guy for actual food! As soon as I opened the envelope I detected a sweet, definitely-chocolatey, but also complex scent. The company who made it is all vegan, and even uses captured rainwater in their production. He’s so cute – I can’t bear to use him too much just yet!
Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum Tee – Listed Value $25.00
This tee shirt is completely charming! It has a vintage illustration of Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum, a specific type of candy that is repeatedly mentioned throughout the Harry Potter series. The flavor is supposed to never fade, and the bubbles can fill a room and last for days! I love the rich blue color of the shirt, and I am in love with the buttery-soft texture of the fabric. The adorable little “Accio!” logo on the back is a perfect finishing touch!
Verdict: I adored this box! The items were so thoughtful, and clearly chosen by people who love Harry Potter as much as I do! I like that just one item a month is limited to one’s pre-chosen house; the wizarding universe is so vast, there’s far more to explore than just one’s House. Everything was so thoughtfully chosen and really well-made. I’m excited to display the Honeydukes jar, and sorta plan to live in the Drooble’s tee shirt. I can’t WAIT for the next Accio! Box!
