Let’s see what’s in the Summer 2017 Sanrio Small Gift Crate!
Everything was shipped in a black box with Sanrio characters along the side.
A peek inside!
The Summer 2017 theme was “Vacation” and a fold-out info “card” listed all of the items inside, along with photos and descriptions for each one.
The first and last section of the info card/booklet actually doubled as summer/vacation themed postcards. Very cool!
Exclusive Hello Kitty Beach Figure
This original Sanrio Crate exclusive figure was released as the box’s only spoiler item and it looks even cooler in person. It’s made of a heavy translucent material (I almost thought it was glass) with an embedded image of Hello Kitty eating ice cream on a sunny beach. There’s actual sand incorporated into the design, making this a truly unique — and adorable — piece. 😉
Exclusive Keroppi Flip Flops
A must have summer accessory for any true Keroppi fan, these colorful flip flops feature our favorite froggy friend floating on an inner tube surrounded by other sea pals. They have a thick foam sole with red plastic straps. I personally can’t stand the feeling of thong sandals (or thong anything), so I’ll be passing these along to someone with more tolerant toes.
Exclusive Sanrio Beach Towel
My favorite item of the bunch was hands-down this giant Sanrio beach towel! It features a group of classic Sanrio characters — My Melody, Keroppi, Chococat, Tuxedosam, and of course, Hello Kitty — all having fun on the beach. It’s a pretty good size, which makes it easier to justify keeping it for myself. Ha! My girls each have their own Hello Kitty towels anyway. 😉
Exclusive Sanrio Beach Tote
This exclusive vinyl tote bag features the same group of characters as pictured on the towel, only they’re all enjoying water activities in this particular design — which is the same on both sides of the tote. It’s not the roomiest bag, but it’s great for holding a few beach accessories or small kid’s toys. Plus it has the whole cuteness thing going for it.
Exclusive Keroppi Charm
Each Sanrio Small Gift Crate has included a collectible charm featuring a popular Sanrio character. The first box featured Hello Kitty, the last one had My Melody, and this time it’s Keroppi. He’s holding onigiri (triangle shaped rice wrapped in seaweed) and shiny metallic gold accents.
Exclusive Sanrio Trinket
Lastly, we have a little Chococat beach ball trinket. Attach it to your beach bag and take a bit of Sanrio with you on all your summer adventures.
Sanrio Small Gift Crate continues to impress! I was happy to see that every single item in this season’s box was a Sanrio Crate exclusive. My favorite items this time were the giant beach towel, translucent Hello Kitty figure, and beach tote. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 15% on your first box with coupon code “TREAT15“!
