This is an amazing subscription box! I absolutely loved May's box. My favorite item has to be my very own Gringlott's Bank key! I absolutely love the tea that comes in every box! Even thought I have a favorite I loved every item in this box! Next month's looks exciting so I may just have to get another! I found out about this subscription box via Cherry Wallis from Youtube. She is so amazing and I love her unboxing videos! Her videos made me want to join in on the fun with these Harry Potter themed subscription boxes! I love what you all are doing here at Cratejoy! Keep up the excellent work!!
I’ve subscribed to the regular box for about a year now, and the special edition for 6 months. They were good a year ago, now they’re awesome👌🏻 They’ve become more environmental friendly with their packaging, but also their content.
You get something wearable, a tea and a print in every box, and usually up to 8 items in each box.
Only negative for me is being an international customer, because i want my box straight away😂 but they’re always with me within approx two weeks from shipping😍👌🏻
Thank you for providing me with some magic every month GeekGear 😍
Never received the last box of my 3 boxes pack, so I canceled my subscription (too late I admit). I saw the money being taken from my account for the second round of 3 boxes, but never received them either. Paid for 6 boxes, received two : you're thieves.
Overall a great box to have and anticipate.
I've subscribed to the monthly boox for the first time and I'm in love!
I loved every item, it has its magic touch and the way it was packaged was the best.
I can't give any negative reviews because so far they have been flawless to me.

Always so exited to receive this magical box full of Harry Potter/fantastic beasts stuff.
The box I received today ( special edition) really blew me away. So much more than I expected. Good job geekgear!
When I first ordered this box the price was worth it. Then they increased the price of the boxes and took out all the items that actually had some value, or were the original reason I bought the box. Not only that but I was never contacted about a price change for these boxes.
I then was charged over £320 for a subscription I hadn’t renewed for a years worth of boxes and when contacting customer services nothing was done. The woman I spoke to was also rude and extremely blunt with me
The items aren’t worth the price of this box and the quality has gone down by a lot
I have been getting Geek Gear boxes for over a year now.
Also tried other subscription boxes but not found them to be as good. I've always subscribe to the regular wizardry box and I've ALWAYS been happy with that. I got the wearable when I was in need to t-shirts. Amazing what u get. Well worth the price. U can find great deals in the shop and I have bought different extra boxes, they are great when u want to buy gifts for someone cause u get so much, always good quality and the customer service... Omg! The Best!!!! I do try out other boxes at times with a different niche, no-one! As such good customer service. And when it comes to potter boxes.. if i want to find something more then I get in my wizardry geek gear box, all I need to do is look at the shop on there website and that way I still got the good quality and I can be sure that I get a wonderful box. Thankyou Geek Gear ❤
Absolutely trash items for the money. A shirt and some useless plastic replicas that you'll never touch again. You'd be lucky if you landed with something you actually like once every few months. Mostly importantly, I clicked cancel subscription but it crashed and proceeded to renew my subscription. Customer service is horrible and didn't reply to my email. You can get far better items for your money elsewhere. This box is like buying the lottery with horrible luck. Would NOT recommend!
The Items have lost their quality. Today I finally get the October box and I don't see how it is even remotely halloween themed. It has a bit of the same themed items it has brought every single month so far. And they are not even good!
And the October box is always the best box! What happened?
I am also tired of getting WANDS in EVERY box, when my box is not wand themed! They are not even from any of the characters, I don't have space for non harry potter related items anymore! I signed for Harry Potter themed items. Also bad plastic.
I feel like wasting my money expecting the type of boxes I saw people recieving last year with good resin replicas from the movies, while I get pins and low quality plastic.
As soon as my year subscription is over, I am done with Geekgear. I can only count 1 single good box in all of the year. Not worth the money.
The only good thing to say: Shipping has been on point. Pity the boxes did not lighten up my day anymore.
The box is good, IF you receive it. Had the Box for 6 month, renewed it and now I don't receive my boxes. What makes it worse in my opinion, is that customer service is doing nothing. They just tell me, I must have received my boxes, when I tell them I didn't they just stop replying. I'm so very disappointed and also furious at this point. This to me is fraud, and also handled in the most rude way. I regret purchasing there.
This has been the worst subscription I’ve ever come across! Definitely advise people to avoid in future, feels like a scam
I ordered a pretty expensive wizardry subscription for my sister first, she has received 3 deliveries. All with tiny children’s T-shirts, nothing to do with wizardry. For £50 per delivery to get 2 T-shirt’s is a total rip-off but that they are both the wrong size and nothing to do with the pack I chose is really bad service.
Im always so excited to recieve my box and see what magic I get! Any issues Ive had have quickly been resolved and ive enjoyed each box greatly! Personally the tea’s im not a fan of as a non tea drinker but they are still fun and quirky
Customer service is terrible. The ladies shirts run small, and do not line up with the sizes they say they are on their website, at least the one I got did not. Although they don’t ask for measurements, pictures, nothing at all, they won’t even consider that maybe just maybe, the shirt actually is smaller than it should be. The person I dealt with would contradict herself, and actually took a tone like she was talking to a child. Take a look at some of the responses to people’s complaints on here. To lose a subscriber of two boxes because you aren’t willing to even try to work something out over a shirt just makes no sense. It’s too bad too, because the actual items in the boxes are pretty great.
Its been a month now and I have not received my order yet. Not pleased!!
No crate. No refund.
I had high hopes for this subscription. I can't completely fault the Company but do wish it had turned out differently. It was a gift that arrived with only half of the items. Because I could not prove the items were missing (ie photos of damaged packaging) I was denied being shipped the missing items. Again, I understand their stance but who lies about a plush toy, cushion cover and tea? I even offered to pay shipping. I had hoped to continue with this subscription but they clearly do not want me as a customer. I agree with other low rated reviews that all they do is "confirm" they are right and offer no real assistance.
Horrible company. So this last November, I decided to order 2 of the festive boxes for my sister and myself for Christmas. By 12/20 they still hadn't shown so I emailed them.
A support rep responded. They obviously didn't read my whole email as I clearly stated that I never recieved an order number, but their 1st email to me asked for the order number....
I then found the paypal invoice information and sent that instead.
Then, I received one of the missing boxes. I immediately messaged them and let them know that I was now only missing one box.
They write back 1 to 2 weeks later asking for me to send a picture of the box received as proof. It was a Christmas gift. Of course the box was no longer in my possession.
So about a month later they write saying that they confirmed the weight of the package and can prove that I recieved 2 boxes.
That's complete BS because one, I didn't receive 2 boxes, and two, I can't confirm that myself as I have no way of knowing the weight of 2 boxes!
They were also very rude and condescending. The rep kept using all caps like I was unable to understand them when they clearly weren't understanding me.
They refuse to issue a refund, refuse to provide physical evidence and refuse to give me contact information.
I asked to speak to someone else and they stated that they can "confirm" that they are in management. The rep uses that...
Dear Tessa, thank you for your review. After careful investigation and looking into tracking information we are unable to support your claim. We, as a family owned business, are proud to be serving thousands of loyal and amazing subscribers and customers on a monthly basis and always help where we can.

We apologise if this isn’t in your favour, however, we wish you the best in the future. Thank you, your GeekGear team.
they stole $60 from me. i ordered 2 boxes on NOVEMBER 25th. guess what? still dont have them. its the 20th of JANUARY. emailed them 4 different times and never got anything back. ridiculous, don't let this company take your money.
Dear Jaz, thank you for your review. I can confirm that we have had one email which was dated on the 16th of January, which was replied to and awaiting a response. We try our best to make sure we reply to customers in a reasonable timeframe, due to the festive season, there was a delay due to a high number of emails.
Please note that we are a highly regarded company shipping all across the world, we in no way steal anything from our customers and always try to be as responsive as possible. We do not use bots to reply to our customers but human beings who day in and day out make sure that our customers receive the service they deserve.
I ordered the ONE month subscription-it took a little over a month to come ( no tracking), a few days later I get an email saying my subscription has been renewed! Was not happy- I immediately responded back but have not heard from anyone. Don’t even know what’s in box because it’s a Christmas gift so can’t give reviews on that.
Dear Megan, thank you for your review. Please note that this is a subscription service, which is a service which automatically renews on a month to month basis.

Hola, el día 23/11/2018 realicé un pedido de una caja referencia: #1868145818 y hoy día 05/01/2019 todavía no ha llegado.
He enviado varios correos reclamando su llegada y sigo sin recibir mi pedido.
La caja es un regalo para mi hija para el dia 06/01/2019 y por ello estoy muy desilusionada con la situación.
Exijo me envíen la caja lo antes posible ya que está pagada desde noviembre
Dear Susana, thank you for your review. After looking into it further, I can confirm that your order was placed after the November cut off, which automatically makes it the December box. Please note that this box isn’t dispatched until late December, as stated clearly on our website at the HELP section. Also, the count down at the top of the website should have clearly indicated which box you were ordering.
I can see from our support team that this has now been rectified. Thank you :)
It is the week of Thanksgiving and I have yet to receive my October Wizardry Special Edition box that I ordered almost 2 months ago. The boxes were supposedly dispatched over a month ago. I have contacted customer service via their provided email, sent an inquiry via Twitter, sent an inquiry via Facebook, sent an inquiry via Instagram, and have heard NOTHING back. There is no way to track my international package. I just have to trust that they will deliver to me eventually. This subscription is way too expensive to be treating their customers this way. This was to be my first box and I was very excited. Now I'm just disappointed, sad, and $70 poorer. Based on many others' reviews there are people who have not recieved boxes or a response from customer support months after an order. Youtubers who promote their company online via unboxings, I've noticed, have had their boxes delivered, however. This is a scam company. I would highly advise against subscribing. Go with a more reliable company or just save up for merch on your own. You'll probably save a lot of money, to be honest.
Dear Danielle, thank you for your review. We do apologise about the delay of your October Wizardry special edition box - however, these boxes are dispatched nearer the end of October and international shipping can be very unpredictable. We charge our international customers £5.99 shipping to ship internationally - this is already a price which can hardly be beaten by anyone else - it does however usually take 1-2 weeks depending on weather, the shipping service as well as the country where it is being shipped to. This is the reason why we have to say to our customers that it can sometimes take up to 4 weeks to be delivered.
If for any reason it doesn’t arrive, we will of course replace any missing or...
A few months ago and I would have rated Geek Gear 5 stars but I had an extremely shady experience with this company that makes me not want to support them anymore. In every box I have received from them, I've always gotten 2 scratch cards. I thought this was normal. I never won a prize from any of them but in my July box, I surprisingly won 2 free boxes. I emailed Geek Gear and it turns out that receiving 2 scratch cards was a mistake so I could only get one box for free. I was a bit upset but I totally understood. Plus I was already super grateful to be receiving anything for free. I responded letting them know that I was okay with only receiving one box. One month passed and I receive nothing in the mail. I email them asking what the progress of box was. No response. Another month passed and still no response so I email them once again. It has now been 3 MONTHS since I supposed to receive my box and STILL NO RESPONSE. I am extremely disappointed and WILL NOT continue to support a company that does this to their customers.
Here are my overall ratings (from when I was still subscribed to their boxes) -
Shipping - 4 stars. I live in the US and was shocked when the boxes arrived so quickly. Only thing that sucks is that you can't track it.
Customer Service - 1 star. Reasoning is my explanation...
I subscribed to the Wearable Boxes in May 2018, and there hasn't been one box that I didn't love. I can recommend subscribing to everyone who is a big Harry Potter fan. Beautiful T-Shirts and other wearable items.
My box arrived late so i asked the support for help and received it really fast from Debbie. So thank you very much for this! The box was absolutely great!
