Sanrio Small Gift Crate – review July 2017

Oh Sanrio Crate, you are so cute and adorable.

When I dug into the Summer 2017 Sanrio Small Gift Crate I squealed with delight… a Hello Kitty beach towel!! OMG – I was so excited and it comes with a matching beach towel and flip flops. Agghhhh…. This is the best box yet!!

So you know my thoughts. I loved it. Now let’s look at the goodies.

First look

The goodies

Sanrio Beach Towel

Value – $32 US for a similar Beach Towel in the official Sanrio store

This is my favourite item. I really needed a new beach towel and this one is so cute and vibrant. I love it!

Sanrio Crate says – “Your Sanrio friends love the beach as much as you do, so why not take them along? This full-size, terrycloth beach towel features Hello Kitty, My Melody, Chococat, Keroppi and Tuxedosam enjoying the sand, surf and each other!”

Sanrio Beach Tote

Value – $34 US for a similar tote bag in the official Sanrio store

This bag is super cute! I’ve popped the towel in, so you can see how roomy it is with the towel inside. It does smell a little plasticy though, but I’m sure that will go away with use. I can’t wait to use it when I take my little baby to swimming lessons in the future!

Sanrio Crate says – “Carry your gear to the beach, the pool or anywhere in Sanrio style. This sturdy vinyl tote features Hello Kitty, Keroppi, My Melody, Chococat and Tuxedosam enjoying a leisurely day in the water. Pair with your beach towel and flip flops for the perfect summer trio!”

Keroppi Flip Flops

Value – Guesstimation at $10

Unfortunately I won’t be wearing these straight away as I have to wear my physio approved thongs due to being pregnant. Yes you scoff, but they make such a difference!! But once everything is back to normal I’ll be slipping on these cute flip flops.

Sanrio Crate says – “Complete your supercute Sanrio summer look with Keroppi! These warm-weather must-haves feature out fave frog floating happily in an inner tube and ready to accompany you in summer fun!

There was three cute little trinkets in this month’s box. I like that each month we are getting a key chain, as it is starting to make a sweet little collection.

Sanrio Trinket – Chococat

Value – Guesstimation $2

Sanrio Crate says – “Take a little bit of Sanrio with you wherever you go with this supercute beach ball trinket! (It also goes great with your crate that transforms into a sweet suitcase)!”

Hello Kitty Beach Figure

Value – Guesstimation $10

Sanrio Crate says – “This original collectible captures a perfect snapshot of summer fun – literally! Hello Kitty enjoys the sandy beach inside the translucent figure. It’s a supercute companion to the Hello Kitty figure from Sanrio Small Gift Crate #1 (Hello!)!”

You can check out my review of the Sanrio Small Gift Crate #1 to find out more about this previous Hello Kitty figure.

Keroppi Charm

Value – $7 US for a similar Keroppi Charm key chain in the official Sanrio store

Sanrio Crate says – “Keroppi joins your growing Sanrio Small Gift Crate charm collection! Keroppi’s favourite pastimes include swimming, baseball and playing with boomerangs, which make him the perfect companion for summer fun.”

Is it worth it?

This has been my favourite Sanrio Gift Crate box yet. Value wise you get more than what you paid for but not quite double the value.

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

The theme for the 2017 Christmas Box

The theme for next quarter is Sweet Dreams and it will feature Hello Kitty, My Melody, Chococat, Little Twin Stars, Keroppi and Pochacco.

I’m not too sure when this box ships. It says that orders close on 15 December. So I imagine it’s shipping late December. So I expect to receive the box in early – mid January.

For the theme ‘Sweet Dreams’ I hope to see a cute PJ top, slippers or an eye mask. I also wouldn’t mind a cute Hello Kitty pillow slip. What do you hope will be in the next Sanrio Gift Crate Box?
