Rebecca Reviewed It: The Wizarding Trunk All Hallows Eve Special Edition

Ok, I admit I was impressed. This is only my second subscription box from The Wizarding Trunk. The All Hallows Eve box is part of their special edition collection. Yes, I did pay more for the special edition box. But I feel the value of the products was well worth the price.

Please be advised, spoilers ahead. If you are still waiting for your special edition box to arrive, stop reading right now.

Sneak Peek!

The All Hallows Eve Special Edition by The Wizarding Trunk

I was lucky this time. The fully packed box came with the cheat sheet card.

The description sheet is gorgeous too.

My last one did not have one. I had to scramble to figure out the right descriptions for the products.

  1. Vintage Sweet Shop Advertisement Post Card

Can you imagine getting this in the mail for your next shopping trip? Around the edges are lists of products to purchase, including Ice Mice, Jelly Slugs, Every Flavored Beans, Chocolate Frogs, Exploding Bon Bons,  and more. I know I would be in line for Chocolate Frogs.

2. Sweet Shop Sucker

Perhaps, this sweet treat came from the shop with the advertisement.

3. Wooden Street Sign

Perfect little sign replica to point the way to the darker type shops, would you go? I know I would. My curiosity would get the best of me; I would want to know what was in each shop.

4. Pumpkin Juice Candle

From the makers of Inflammare Candles, this candle is Toasted Pumpkin Spice. The decor is perfect for both Halloween and the Wizarding World.

5. Replica Pumpkin Juice Bottle

I was absolutely excited to see this Pumpkin Juice Bottle in the All Hallows Eve box. I think this my favorite replica. The Pumpkin Juice Bottle will make a perfect photo prop.

6. Bottle of Bone Regeneration Serum 

When I first glanced at this potion bottle, I thought another perfect prop. But the contents are actually usable. Created by Alchemy for the Skin, the bottle contains oil for muscle aches.

7. Vital Incantum Poisons and Cursed Curiosities Catalogue 

Created by Danny at Wzady Workshop, the catalog is definitely a fantastic prop to add to my growing collection.

8. Dark Follower Mask

I cannot believe this is my first mask.

9. Troll Salvia

When I first pulled this potion out, I thought Troll Bogeys. But the contents are Troll Salvia. Is that better? The potion bottle is a wonderful addition to my growing collection.

10. The Four Ghosts Pin

The quality of The House Ghosts pin is excellent. Even though I do not wear a lot of pins, I love this one. I will display the pin with the others in my collection.

11. B & B Key 

Who wants their own shop? Here’s the key! The B & B Shop key is from one of the shops down the darker side. If you could own one, what would your shop be?

I loved the products in this All Hollows Eve subscription box from The Wizarding Truck. Did you get the box? What was your favorite item?

 

Rebecca Reviewed It: The Wizarding Trunk Lessons Two Box

The Magical Lessons themed box is my first purchase from The Wizarding Trunk. The theme of this box is Transfiguration, Flying, and Apparition based around the Harry Potter series. The box is the second in the series focusing on lessons from Hogwarts.

Yes, I save the packaging to reuse in my gift-giving boxes or for crafts.

I was a little disappointed my box did not come with the letter/cheat sheet. I love to read the information guide to figure out precisely what is in the box. Sometimes, my guessing is a little off.

But I loved the email sent to me with the tracking information. My owl’s name was Fred. So I raise my glass of Butterbeer to Fred for safely delivering my package.

Transfiguration, Flying, and Apparition

I must give high marks to the creative people behind this box.

  1. Dittany Potion: Essence of Dittany Potion bottle is a perfect addition to my shelf. I loved the intricate design of the wax seal, the old-style label, and the overall display of the leaves.

    The potion bottle is one of my favorites in this box.
  2. Transfiguration Book Cover: The book covers fit the U.S. versions of the Harry Potter Series. The cover was created by Danny at Wizardry Workshop. The design and foiling of the book cover are absolutely beautiful.
  3. Ron’s Rat Goblet Pin: In the series, Ron’s wand is broken. When he attempts to turn the rat into a water goblet, the outcome is hilarious. The pin represents this moment in the series.
  4. Wizarding Travel Woodmark: The bookmark features your own License for Independent Wizard Travel.  The bookmark came in a purple envelope with a wax seal on the back.
  5. Reusable Coffee Sleeve: I am not a big coffee drinker. I do drink tea. I am sure this will be a perfect fit for my travel mug.
  6. Transfiguration Lessons VII Print: The print, created by J.P. Misslecrow, is one of my favorites. I love the overall design. The print looks like it came out of an old transfiguration book. 
  7. The Pitch: A candle created by Inflammare Candles smells like the Pitch, which is Fresh Air, Flying, Sweet Grass, and Dandelion.
  8. Do-It-Yourself Broomstick Servicing Kit: The kit is actually a pencil case, which I think could easily double for a cosplay item or a photo prop. 
  9. Broomstick Servicing Kit Note Pad: I can never have too many notepads.
  10. Broomstick Servicing Kit Compass: I really liked the overall design of this clip-on compass. 
  11. Broomstick Polish: This is such a great idea. The “polish” is actually a detox face wash. The tin makes a beautiful display piece.
  12. Brooch Phone Holder: This replica of Professor McGonagall’s brooch is a stand to hold your cell phone. I love the little note that came with the brooch, signed by H.

Will I purchase another box from The Wizarding Trunk? Yes, in fact, I already pre-ordered the Halloween special edition box.

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.

Unicorn Blood
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.
