The Fan Empire July 2016 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure


The Fan Empire delivers 4-6 high quality fandom magically geeky items every month.  The Fan Empire normally has a strong box game, so I was a little sad that I got a bag in my mailbox. I shouldn’t have been because The Fan Empire never fails to impress.


The content card which is never boring lets us know what we will find as well as information on staying connected via social media. Our theme this month I Solemnly Swear, this goes with my favorite movie quote t-shirt. IMG_2536

On the flip side is the Marauders Map with the names of the four Gryffindor founders. I love the foot print details because we all know the map is supposed to show where everyone is at any given time on the  Hogwarts property.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good, pocket mirror is so cute. You can’t see a lot in the mirror but I think this is a perfect quote for a mirror. I know that I’m normally up to no good if I’m looking in the mirror, trying to look my best for a night out or just making faces. IMG_2541

Golden antiqued carving of Hogwarts castle with the words The Marauders Map. Unfortunately this photo doesn’t show just how pretty this key chain is.


The other side has the needed phrase to open the map, I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.


Leather chained message in a bottle necklace, again it’s the Marauders map. I am impressed at the details in this miniature replication. IMG_2533

Its a decorative throw pillow case and I’m madly in love with it! High quality with a zip closure I cannot wait to get a pillow form and proudly display this in my living room. It will have a place of honor and no one other than me will be able to use it, I wish I was kidding but I’m not.

The Marauder Boys bookmark, meet the four Gryffindor founders of the Marauders map, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black and James Potter. The four students that has a knack for rule-breaking and mischief making.

IMG_2545This month’s box left something to be desired in me, I think it was bold colors and something completely unique. This is one of the most boring color palettes that has ever been presented to me by The Fan Empire. I love Harry Potter more than the next guy but it seems to be presented month after month. There are tons of wonderful fantasy movies and books that are not being represented by this amazing subscription. I’d love to see more The Lord of the Rings items or Chronicles of Narnia.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes it was a wonderful surprise.

    What a fabulous box! The Harry Potter geek in me can’t help but point out that James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew were the founders of the Marauder’s Map, not Gryffindor.
    I would especially LOVE to have that pillowcase for my bed!

  • Ashley

    Thus is my first box. I wasn’t too impressed. My main issue with this box is the keychain it is beautiful on the front but words are misspelled on the back. I had researched then a lot and was super excited for it. I love the pillow case but I was going for maybe some mischievous items, like joke candy or something. Hoping Augusts us much better.

    While the color is a little muted this month I do love that pillow case. WOW that is an awesome item.

  • Sara

    This is my second box from them. I loved it. I also agree I hope they have themes with different fandoms as much as I love Harry Potter its a bit too much.
