Very nice set of books with a case. Just a word of warning though, if you are ordering this as a gift, the shipping box says “Harry Potter 7 book set”in huge letters on the box. So make sure you are the only one home when it shows up!!!

Harry Potter - Great Set of books for all ages.
Fantastic compilation and presentation of all the Harry Potter books in the original series, hard cover and packaged in a chest that resembles Harry's trunk that he carried on the Hogwart's Express train. Practical (the chest keeps the books organized), collectible and value priced at Walmart.
I ordered this set online to be delivered to my local Walmart store for pickup. The package arrived at Walmart a day earlier than the expected delivery schedule. The pickup was easy and fast, no waiting at all. The outside shiping box was damaged on one corner and I had the employee open the box to see if the damage extended to the inside. When the box was opened, I checked inside and found the packing to be extremely sturdy, extra thick cardboard surrounding the "trunk" of the Harry Potter books, and there was no damage. I am very satisfied with my purchase through Walmart. The price was comparable to what Amazon was charging. I normally would have used Amazon but I read other reviewers' comments about the shipping box clearly identifying the contents inside and I didn't want to take a chance of having it stolen from my porch. Kudos to Walmart. I shop there all the time but it was the first time for site to store ordering and the process was very smooth.
Should have disguised the packaging when delivered
This is exactly as we expected, however, THANK GOD we got home 5 minutes before the kids got off the bus, because we grabbed the box off the porch as they were walking straight for the house 20 feet away. The reason it is a problem is because the outer packaging stated in HUGE FONT, HARRY POTTER BOXED SET BOOKS 1-7........ON THE OUTSIDE PACKAGE!!! I suppose we could have had it marked for gift wrap when ordered but I don't remember that option and it came straight from the book company, not Walmart. You would think they would know it's holiday time and that's really a bad idea, what about parents who get home after the kids do.....It is a nice gift, but $100 is too pricy for the surprise to be ruined before the gifting time. The cardboard paper treasure box isn't worth the extra money either, but my son is happy so I guess that's what matters most. Merry Christmas!
Exactly What I Wanted
Being a fan of Harry Potter since it first got printed. I wanted a hardcover collection that had the original covers, this is exactly what I got. The reviews talk about the box, but my friends are extremely jealous of it. Yeah its made out of cardboard but it does what it's suppose to, hold the books. Highly recommended!
