Rebecca Reviewed It: Geek Gear’s Professor McGonagall Box

I recently purchased the Geek Gear Limited Edition Professor McGonagall Box. Let me just say, I was not disappointed with my purchase. Yes, I did receive my box later than others. But keep in mind, I live in the US. Whereas Geek Gear is located in the UK, my delivery owl has a long way to go to find me.

I save the packing material to use on art projects.

What is a Subscription Box?

If you are unfamiliar with subscription boxes, let me do a quick explanation. Geek Gear and other companies put together mystery boxes. Depending on the subscription, a crate arrives, monthly, or bi-monthly. Other crates may be a limited or special edition with only once chance to purchase. For example, the Professor McGonagall box is limited edition.

Limited Edition Professor McGonagall Box by Geek Gear

I was absolutely excited to get this box. Professor McGonagall is one of my favorite characters in the Harry Potter series.

  1. Crumbly Biscuit Pennant: Who could not forget the scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Professor McGonagall said, “Have a Biscuit, Potter”? The wall pennant is based on that moment in the book.
  2. Quidditch Badge: The gold badge is a perfect addition to my pin collection.
  3. Artist Artwork: I love fan art from the Wizarding World. In the box, I received artwork featuring Professor McGonagall and Hedwig, a perfect combination. The artist is Tony Black. He is available on Facebook @antblakeart.
  4. Spectacular Replica: These glasses are perfect for cosplay.
  5. Transfiguration Notepad: As a writer, I can never have too many notepads.
  6. Miniature Hat Replica: Professor McGonagall’s hat replica is an excellent addition to my bookshelf.
  7. Animagus Replica: I love the small cat replica of McGonagall’s animagus. I love cats anyways, I have six.
  8. Magnifying Glass Mini Replica: Another great addition to put on my bookshelf. I can definitely see myself using this in the future in a photo.
  9. Piertotum Locomotor T-Shirt: The Piertotum Locomotor scene is my absolute favorite. The t-shirt reflects the scene. I admit the exclusive Geek Gear t-shirt is my favorite item from the Professor McGonagall crate.

Did you get the Limited Edition Professor McGonagall crate? What was your favorite item?

Personal Review: September’s Geek Gear Wizardry Box

I am enjoying the monthly subscription to the Geek Gear Wizardry box. I thought I would share September’s contents with all of you. As many of you know, I am a geek. Getting a box filled with items from the Wizarding World is exciting.

September’s Contents

The box generally contains around 7 or 8 items. I was impressed with this month’s box. In every box, I receive a wearable, This month’s t-shirt was an exclusive creatures t-shirt. I admit I was grinning from ear to ear when I pulled the shirt out of the box. Even though I am not a fan of yellow, I really love this shirt.

Along with the shirt, my next favorite item in the box was Unicorn Blood Glass Bottle. From the packaging to the glow in the dark contents, the bottle was a perfect addition to my collection.

The contents glow in the dark.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The jewelry is always a welcomed addition.

I love the simplicity of the bracelet.
The design on the envelope is amazing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I admit my wall space is getting limited with all these new prints and posters. The decree posters are one of my favorites, I am slowly adding these to my bedroom. Many of the other prints hang in my room as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The September box also contained an Exclusive Magical Totebag.

 

And tea.

Teas are always a favorite for me. I love sipping hot tea on a cold, Michigan day.

 

Addressing the Box’s Lateness

I had a comment on one of my social media posts that the Geek Gear Wizardry box was lateLoo last month. Please take into account, the boxes come from the U.K. They must pass through customs before arriving at my house. So when I post about the box two weeks into the next month, I do not consider the arrival late. What can I say, I know the owls have a long way to go to get to my home.

Looking Forward

I just saw a teaser post for October’s box. The theme is Goblet of Fire and the teaser…dragons. I cannot wait.

Do you have a favorite subscription box? Please let me know.

 

Personal Review: Geek Gear Wizardry Box

I do not write too many personal reviews. In my opinion, everyone has the right to decide if a product is right for you or not.  With that being said, I am a fan of subscription boxes. The monthly or bi-monthly crates are filled with various items. Depending on your personal tastes, a crate may contain beauty items, food from around the globe, movie memorabilia, and much more. The best aspect of these crates, you never know what is inside. The crates are a pleasant monthly surprise.

Today’s crate just made me smile from first glance to viewing the final product. So I just had to share my excitement with all of you.

 

First, sneak peek…I admit I opened this one slowly. I took pictures as I pulled out each item.

T-shirts are always part of these Wizardy Geek Gear boxes. I absolutely love getting a new t-shirt every month. Of course, my t-shirt collection is growing more than I could ever wear in a year. The August box contains an exclusive beasts t-shirt.

Love this shirt!

Other items in this box include:

Cornish Pixies Tea

I love loose tea. I was so happy when Geek Gear started putting teas in the monthly boxes.
Living in Michigan, I can never have too many socks. Michigan winters can get really cold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new mug…

So exciting, this is my first Gringotts Mug. I cannot wait to add this to my collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A bright new print…

Licensed and exclusive, the print will look great on my bedroom wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was so happy to see a wand in this month’s box. I love the Geek Gear wands. Each is uniquely made and durable.

The wand’s specifications.
I love the skeleton wand. Reminds me of my favorite holiday, Halloween.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saving the best for last, the signed owl art poster was my favorite in the August Wizardry Geek Gear Box. I just love this print. I am actually going to hang the poster in my living room.

So my overall review of the August Geek Gear Wizardry Box is 4-stars, my highest rating. I felt like my birthday or Christmas came early today.

Do you subscribe to any monthly crates? What is your favorite?
