I ordered this gift for a family member. I shopped around to different sites to price the item. Overstock had the best price so I had to jump on it and I'm glad I did, because the recepient really enjoyed the set and was impressed by the packaging. I would've given it 5 stars but the product took longer than expected with no current updates for the delivery, so my gift was given after her actual birthday. All in all, its still a great buy and overstock staff was extremely helpful in assisting me with my questions regarding shipment.
The book set was very nice. My son was thrilled. Unfortunately this was meant as a christmas gift, but he seen it on the deck the day it was delivered when he came home from school. That is my one complaint. It said wht it was in big letters on the outside box that it was shipped in.
The set itself is perfect. However, overstock did not do their job. This was a gift and the card was not added. My friend almost returned it because she thought someone made a mistake. I was sent a tracking number that was not attached to anything. I started to get worried and contacted the company. They informed me that not all packages are trackable. Then why send me a tracking number of its worthless. I may not buy from overstock again.
How nice it is to have the entire collection in one display box!!!! The box is a strong cardboard material, so dont be fooled into thinking it is made of wood. However, we dont read the box -- we read the books.... and overall I am really happy that I ordered it. For those that are Harry Potter fans and are missing books from the series, this would make a wonderful Christmas surprise gift.
Bought this for my 21 year old son who grew up with the series and had handed his collection down to this little brother already well read and worn. Zach was thrilled with a complete matching set to read gently and keep for a life time!
I bought this for my girlfriend's birthday, as she is a huge potter fan. When the box arrived at my house, I was immediately impressed by the shipping package the item came in. It was stamped with the HP logo and I could tell it was packaged in a way to insure there was no damage to the product inside. The box of books itself were absolutely amazing. The quality of the books impressed me and my gf immediately. This is the perfect gift for the perfect potter fan, I highly recommend it.
"Trunk" box was so much fun! My daughter opened it and said she felt like she was getting her very own ticket to Hogwarts. I had handwritten her name on the top and she thought it had been personalized just for her. Delivery was quick! It was shipped in a container with the contents described in large letters on the outside, so beware if it is supposed to be a surprised gift.
