J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World Crate from Loot Crate is the bi-monthly and official Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts subscription box. For $39.99 every other month, you’ll get 5-7 unique and officially licensed Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise, so there’s no need to go to Diagon Alley!
It’s the September 2019 crate!
The box also has the Hogwarts insignia!
There were no fillers or extra packaging. The items arrived in great condition.
Inside the box is an image of a hand raising a wand. The theme this month is LUMOS & NOX.
We received a note, and it’s about the missing item in this box. Due to an unforeseen issue, the House Ghost Illuminated Charm will be included and shipped on a future crate.
All the magical loot in the September 2019 Wizarding World crate!
Occamy Enamel Pin. The crate continued with the Magical Creatures series, and for this one, I got an Occamy!
The Occamy is a winged, serpent-like beast that we’ve seen in the first Fantastic Beasts movie.
It was a plumed, two-legged serpentine-bodied creature with wings that reached up to fifteen feet in height. The Occamy was extremely aggressive to anyone who approached it, and lived off of insects, rats, birds, and occasionally monkeys. It was extremely protective of its eggs, which were made of the most pure and soft silver. It was found in the Far East and India.
If the front is not stunning enough, here’s how its back looks like! It’s beautiful. It also has two posts supported by butterfly clutches.
Order of the Phoenix Pouch. The pouch is based on the 5th book/film, and it features Dumbledore’s Fawkes!
I’m impressed by how they made Fawkes as a pattern. The fiery red-colored phoenix looks beautiful along with the other details.
It also has a zipper enclosure, and as you can see, there’s Lord Voldemort’s symbol inside! It’s great for storing writing tools, make-ups, or small accessories and jewelry pieces.
Dumbledore Dome Paperweight. The next item is a dome paperweight inspired by none other than the greatest wizard and Hogwarts Headmaster, Professor Albus Dumbledore!
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
The dome is really nice and useful addition to my work desk, and it reminds me that even at the darkest times, there’s always hope.
Grindelwald Dark Sketchbook. This sketchbook is inspired by the second Fantastic Beasts movie, The Crimes of Grindelwald.
The front of the sketchbook features the symbol of the Deathly Hallows!
It has the Elder Wand as the line passing through the triangle which is the Invisibility Cloak and the circle which turns out to be the Resurrection Stone.
Ths inside is also full of the symbols in the Wizarding World, and aside from the Deathly Hallows, you can also see some other beasts!
The pages are black so if you’re going to write or sketch in it, use a light-colored ink, or better yet, a white one!
House T-Shirt. This month’s exclusive shirt features one of the house animals, and mine has the Ravenclaw’s Eagle!
Aside from the beautiful illustration of the Eagle, it also included the attributes on the Ravenclaw house: Wit, Wisdom, and Learning.
This box is amazing! My favorite is the dome paperweight with one of Professor Dumbledore’s wise words. The Ravenclaw shirt is also quite stunning. The Occamy pin is really beautiful and I like that they’re still into the Magical beasts-themed pins! The sketchbook looks like a special book, and I like that the whole thing is very unique, from the covers up to its plain black pages, while the phoenix pouch is the perfect vessel for my writing tools. I’m really impressed with this box, and I’m looking forward to this subscription getting caught up again!
