From the Harry Potter books and films, these were a product developed by Fred and George Weasley with the first handmade version sold at Hogwarts! The box came with a set of four different sweets. They were two-toned, color coded candies. Biting off of one end temporarily gave you an illness to get you out of class. Then once you were excused you simply ate the other half of the candy and were well again! DISCLAIMER: Please note, the sweets in MY set are not magical and therefore do not make you sick or better again! ;)
I decided to attempt to make a screen accurate version of the Skiving Snackbox for a Harry Potter Halloween party I attended earlier this year. At the time I thought I might do some as gifts so I made a couple extras. These were a LOT of work and right now I only have two pre-made boxes for sale. I'm not sure when I'll make more as the box construction took quite some time.
When I was constructing these I went off of screen capture images of the ones used in the film as well as pictures I found online of a prop that was on display in a Harry Potter exhibit of film props.
The box is handmade. It's pieced together by me and handpainted to match the ones in the film. The boxes the twins were supposed to have constructed had paint dribbles, the labels were crooked, etc. all to look like they were thrown together by kids. This is exactly how I made mine. The box is fairly sturdy as I reinforced it as well as I could but you have to be careful not to overload it with too many sweets as it makes the compartments drag.
The sweets in the box will vary as I don't have enough of the same candies for both boxes and I did not update my photos to show the new ones. I ran out of some of the candies shown on the last box I sold. I actually make sweets using melting chocolates, so I subsituted the green and pink candies (in the lower bottom compartment of the box in pictures) for the orange and purple ones I made. I substituted the fudge (top left compartment) with green and yellow candies I made. This ends up being cooler as I color coded my candies so that one end of each candy is a different color. This is how they are described in the books! I will try to take pictures soon to update the box so it shows the correct candies.
I also will be including some copies of different colored flyers of Weasley products that I printed out for the party. The ones in the picture only show the front of the catalogue, but there are other pages as well showing products from the films and the books. The reprinted pages are from an actual film prop item that was made for the movies showing various Weasley items.
I will be putting the candy in ziplock baggies when I mail it so you will need to place it back in the box compartments when you display it or give it as a gift. I will line the box compartment with wax paper as that's what it looks like they used in the film.
Shipping is a bit more because it's kind of heavy, especially the fudge. Also I want to make sure the box is protected so it isn't damaged in the mail. I know the foreign shipping is a lot, but that's what it costs to mail since they make you send it Priority mail over a certain weight.
**PLEASE NOTE: ALL ITEMS ARE HAND MADE EXCEPT FOR THE TAFFY & YELLOW CANDIES. I MADE THE BOXES, FUDGE, AND MELTING CHOCOLATE CANDIES.**
Perfect gift for the Potter fan!
