Let’s see what’s in the December 2016 Sanrio Small Gift Crate!
The box! (Er, crate.)
A peek inside! (I’m not entirely sure what the little plastic bubble thing is supposed to be, but it’s cute nonetheless.)
Even the info card was adorable!
All of the items were listed inside, along with photos and descriptions for each one.
The opposite side featured a colorful street scene featuring popular Sanrio characters.
Hello Kitty Sparkle Figure – Loot Crate released this as the first (and I believe only) spoiler for the debut Sanrio crate. — It’s an adorable Hello Kitty vinyl figure all bling-ed out with silver glitter (don’t worry, it doesn’t rub off!). She’s a lot heavier than I thought she’d be and features a posable head & shiny metallic blue dress. This is a Loot Crate exclusive figure and I love it!
Hello Sanrio Pocket Tee – Aw… What a cute shirt! I’m kinda bummed that I chose size XS when I signed up, figuring I’d save the shirts for when my girls get older… I would SO wear this myself. Well, at least around the house. 😉 It features My Melody, Keroppi, Chococat and Pochacco tumbling out of a “pocket”, while Hello Kitty, Badtz-Maru, and Pompompurin sit perched inside. The shirt itself is super soft and not as thick/stiff as some Loot Crate shirts tend to be.
Hello Sanrio Notebook – A Loot Crate exclusive Hello Sanrio notebook! It includes a full sheet of colorful stickers in the front, with plenty of lined pages featuring various Sanrio characters inside.
Hello Sanrio Friends Pen – Aww! I LOVE this pen! It includes ten different Sanrio characters on the pen itself, along with little charms with Hello Kitty, Keroppi, and Chococat. (I don’t even mind that poor Keroppi is upside-down!)
Hello Sanrio Scented Erasers – The box just keeps getting cuter!! I have no idea what I’m going to do with a tiny jar full of equally tiny erasers, but I’m happy to have them in my life. 😉 Oh, and they smell like strawberries too!
Hello Sanrio Pouch – Okay, so I do wish this pouch had silver accents instead of gold, but that won’t stop me from using it. 🙂 I love that it has a zippered inside pocket and the metal dangly charm is super cute. I think this’ll be my new go-to makeup/toiletry bag for traveling.
Hello Kitty Bag Charm – Again, I wish this bag charm didn’t have gold details, but I’ll still use it. In fact, I think I’ll just clip it onto the pouch above. 🙂
As a longtime fan of Hello Kitty (and her friends), I absolutely loved the debut box from Sanrio Small Gift Crate! There was a nice mix of both fun & practical items and each one of them was equally kawaii. I’m not sure of the retail values, since most (all?) are exclusive to this box, but I’d say the value is definitely there. I can’t wait to see what next quarter’s box brings! 😀
