Kal-Elle Fandom Monthly “Harry Potter” Review
This month’s magical goodies really don’t need an introduction, though, so let’s hop on the Hogwarts Express and get started!
Hogwarts Houses Magnet – Estimated Value $4.00 (based on similar item)
I love that every Kal-Elle box includes a magnet – I never think to stock up on magnets myself, but they end up being so useful! This one is particularly great because it includes all four Hogwarts Houses, so no matter what House you identify with, this magnet has you covered.
Platform 9 ¾ Print – Estimated Value $12 (based on similar product)
I love little pieces of art like this one! The 4 x 6 size is so cute, and the colors are some of my personal favorites. The watercolor style is also really pretty – I could see this looking awesome in a frame on the wall of someone’s little library or office.
Feather Hair Clip – Estimated Value $7.99 (based on similar product)
Normally hair accessories aren’t really my thing, but I really love this! It’s clearly inspired by the quills they use to write in the Potter universe, and as a proud Ravenclaw, the feather motif doubly speaks to me, adding all the more to its charm.
Hogwarts Castle Necklace – Estimated Value $20 (based on similar product)
This is the second time I’ve discovered a statement-making necklace in a Kal-Elle box, and I’m thrilled with this pendant of Hogwarts Castle. The high-shine surface brings up the elegance factor, and I’m super-happy that it’s silver because I wear silver a lot. The engraving on the back is a wonderful surprise, a sweet little sentiment that I get to carry around all day when I wear it.
Platform 9 ¾ Earrings – Estimated Value $8.36 (based on similar product)
I love that these are a different material than the other jewelry in this box! The engraving on these is laser-sharp, and the posts themselves are really well-made. The nice thing about them being wooden is that they can be worn with any other kind of jewelry, like the necklace that came in this box, or another piece with a lot of colors. I think I’m going to wear these earrings a lot!
Dark Mark Pin – Estimated Value $8.99 (based on similar product)
I love that there’s just a little bit of darkness in this box! Worn in the series by Dark Wizards, or more specifically, Death Eaters, the Dark Mark is definitely a sign of the bad guys in this fandom. I remember years ago I met a girl who actually went out and got herself a Dark Mark tattoo – I thought it was so badass! This pin is really high-quality; the details are etched in carefully, and it seems really sturdy.
Daily Prophet Scarf – Retail Value $29.99
I had heard last month that this scarf was going to be included in this box, and the anticipation of receiving it had me pacing the floor until it arrived! It was so worth the wait. This scarf is simply beautiful; the fabric is nice and soft but still sturdy, the crispness of the graphic is so nice and clear, and there’s a nice variety of photos and text. You can tell this was made by a real fan; the care in the details are awesome. Good thing this matches pretty much everything because I’m basically never taking it off.
Verdict: A second complete slam-dunk for me with this subscription box! The curation of this is so excellent; it feels like a box full of love from someone who is just as big of a fan as you are! I absolutely love all things Harry Potter, and I loved all the details that were thoughtfully considered throughout this box.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box. From Kal-Elle:
Boxes ship every month between the 23rd-27th.
Coupon – Save 25% off your first box with code MSA25!
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $19 + $3.75 shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $3.25. But given the value of the scarf alone and the high-level of curation of the items, this box had a ton of extra value.
