Charm With Me Club aimed to please, timing out their November Box with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! But did they hit the target, or miss the mark?
The November Charm With Me Club Box set expectations high, with subscribers anticipating another set of Harry Potter charms, specifically based on the new release Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In all honesty, I was pretty disappointed with this box. I felt like there was so much that they could have done with this theme and they completely missed the mark.
The first charm was a Warner Brothers licensed product, featuring the Magical Congress of the United States of America seal. This has been a running theme with Charm With Me where they have a beautiful charm but it’s not really practical for a charm bracelet. This would be stunning on a necklace but it is much too big and bulky for my bracelet and I will never wear it as intended.
The second and third charms were more the classic silver that Charm With Me typically does, but both left something to be desired. The first of the two was a snake – which honestly didn’t appear as a snake at all. It looks like a spring or something and it’s only upon closer inspection I found eyes on it. Seeing as the movie features plenty of magical creatures (including a winged snake) I felt this typical animal (that didn’t look like an animal at all) was incredibly out of place.
The last charm was a suitcase which was supposed to be representative of Newt’s case of beasts. I get it and it’s cute but it’s also incredibly generic. This charm didn’t really have any wow factor and was really disappointing.
This whole box was quite a let down for me and this is actually going to be my last box with Charm With Me unless they do a theme I simply can’t miss. Though the MACUSA charm was beautiful, it’s not meant for a charm bracelet and is not what I expect from this box.
Over the last few months, many of my charms have changed to a copper color or blackened and have turned my wrist green. Definitely not the quality I’m looking for. I’d be more than happy to pay more for a higher quality charm that lasts longer than what these have.
