The pin is my favorite. Aside from the fact I am an obvious Ravenclaw, it’s just lovely.
I think I can invent a reason to wear that tie… And also learn how to tie a tie…
All in all, if I were to rank these, the book would be on the bottom for its inability to be used in various circumstances. You can wear the rest of this but the book will just BE there. It’s pretty but not practical. Absolutely a super fan item (and I am NOT complaining). The tie would be next, then the scarf, then the pin would be at the top because it is so shiny and cool.
I honestly feel like these guys are listening to me when I always say to put stationary items in the crates. How awesome is it to put an office memo on Magical Congress stationary!? And have awesome pens and erasers? I love getting things I can actually USE rather than have figures and dolls all vying for space in my house. Collectables are nice but having them EVERYWHERE is clutter and there are only so many t-shirts I can wear.
Even though I probably shouldn’t spare the expense, I found this crate to be worth the money! I love what I’m getting.
Omg, those plates… XD Those are just the funniest random item.
Fantastic Beasts is the only Potter movie I haven’t seen from the series. And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for stationary sets. I mean, this is Harry Potter. They use parchment paper and quills; a geeky writer’s dream. This paired with the pencil case made this box for me.
One day when I’m not poor anymore and I can fix up my kitchen, I am hanging those plates. That’s not even a question. The pin? To be honest, it makes me a little nervous. Any dangly things make me nervous. I always think it will catch on something when I wear it or use it and it will break. Does it look cool? Yes. Would I break it like a klutz so I will likely keep it in a case so it’s safe? Yup.
I certainly hope more journals and stationary are in future boxes. When I went to Universal’s Harry Potter world, they had beautiful journals so it would be awesome to get some sort of exclusive journal or pens not seen in the park or in stores. Like an ACTUAL Tom Riddle diary. How amazing would that be!?
But that’s not a drawback or a criticism, just some ideas on what I’d like to see in the future. 🙂
