I bought it in 2007 and it has been in the box, most of the time. I was hoping to display it someday but it looks more like a toy than a collectible.
It is long, heavy and not well balanced when you hold it. It looks like painted plastic/resin with the logo stamped in plain sight. I can also see a line across the middle where it was put together. The leaf design is original, but it goes too far on the wand. It would have been better as a handle decoration. It is also all the same (ugly) color. The original first year Hermione's wand look much better. I wonder why they changed it ...?
I took it out a few times as an accessory to a costume and to lend to kids so they can play with it. The box, however, is beautiful.
I wish it would have been carved out of wood, then it could be a collectible and would be on proper display.
