Loot Crate – Sanrio Box December 2016 review

When I saw that Loot Crate had a Sanrio Box I just couldn’t resist. I know I’m a bit old for it but I love Hello Kitty and all her friends. If you want to get $5 off your first Sanrio Box use this link.

This box is quarterly. I received this box in December and the next box is due at the end of March (which is soon!).

First look

Sanrio Crate - December 2016

The products

Hello Sanrio Pocket Tee

Hello Sanrio Pocket Tee
$20 – $40 for a similar shirt on www.sanrio.com

Sanrio says ‘Ever wish you could carry some characters around in your pocket? Wish granted! Featuring Hello Kitty, Badtz-Maru, Pompompurin, My Melody, Keroppi, Chococat and Pochacco, this kawaii tee lets you take your Sanrio friends with you wherever you go!’.

This is my favourite item from the box. I put it on that day! It’s comfy and cute. I put down my size as a small. The shirt is quite long, I’m not sure if that is the style or if I should have gone a size down.

Hello Kitty Sparkle Figure

Hello Kitty Sparkle Figure
$10

Sanrio says ‘It’s no secret that we love Hello Kitty, but guess what – we also love glitter! This supercute figure combines our two favourite things into one awesome collectible.’

This item was the sneak peek item and I wasn’t too sold on it at the time but in real life I love it. The photos just don’t do it justice!

Hello Kitty Stationery Dec 2016

Hello Sanrio Notebook, scented erasers and pen
$8 for similar pen on www.sanrio.com
$10 for erasers, there is a similar set of two erasers on www.sanrio.com
$11 for similar notebook on www.sanrio.com

Sanrio says ‘Take notes the supercute Sanrio way with this notebook, pen and eraser set! The notebook includes a sticker sheet to add sweetness to your pages. The black ink pen features three character charms: Hello Kitty, Keroppi and Chocoat. The collectible jar holds nine strawberry scented mini-erasers. Yummy!’

I’m going to save the notebook and erasers as a gift but the pen has made its way to my desk.

Hello Sanrio Pouch - Dec 2016

Hello Sanrio Pouch
$13 for a similar pouch on www.sanrio.com

Sanrio says ‘Carry your school supplies, cosmetics, or other tiny treasures in this perfect pouch featuring an allover Hello Sanrio print! The detachable charm and golden Hello Kitty bow are fabulous finishing touches.’

This is a nice quality pouch. I’m undecided yet whether I’ll use it or add it to my gift pile.

Hello Kitty Bag Charm - Dec 2016

Hello Kitty Bag Charm
$7 for a similar key chain on www.sanrio.com

Sanrio says, ‘This charming bag charm features Hello Kitty in a classic pose. Holding her signature red bow, she also hold our heart! Attach her to your favourite item for instant happiness!’

A simple way to add a bit of Hello Kitty sweetness into your day.

Is it worth it?

Overall for me this was a fun box. I’m looking forward to the next box. I wonder if you get a shirt each time, because I love Sanrio shirts and a new one each box would seal the deal for me. I worked out the value to be $79 – $99 US dollars, the Sanrio store pricing is in US Dollars 😉

If you are in the US your getting good value for money and super cute Sanrio merch. If you don’t live in the US, your not getting as good a deal on the value for money side of things but you are getting a fun surprise of Sanrio items sent to your house. Which if you love Sanrio gear is worth it!

This box ships quarterly and I expect the next box to be rocking up at my house in the next two weeks. Hooray!

Who should subscribe to this box? Hello Kitty and Sanrio fans. This would make a great gift too!
