Now, onto the items!
Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel Mamepuchi Plush Set – Exclusive!
These little mini plushes are an exclusive design just for subscribers!
Dear Daniel has a tuft of hair (fur?) and an adorable little bowtie to compliment his pinstripes.
Hello Kitty has her signature bow and a tutu skirt!
(These plushies measure about 3 inches long and have a bean filling in the base.)
Little Twin Stars Stackable Mugs – Exclusive!
These pastel colored mugs are so cute!
I love the star accent on the top of the handle!
Each mug has a shiny light-colored glaze, with the pattern remaining as the unglazed part. The mugs are ceramic and both dishwasher and microwave safe, too!
These are smaller than your typical mugs – they are about 3 inches tall.
Patty & Jimmy Enamel Pin Set – Exclusive!
This is the nicest box and presentation I’ve seen for enamel pins!
And these pins are way bigger than your typical enamel pin. They even need two pins on the back to keep them in place:
These measure about 3 inches long.
They look great together but would be fun to share one with a BFF!
Little Twin Stars Infinity Scarf – Exclusive!
This scarf is a sheer black fabric, with a silver/holographic pattern.
It’s light weight and 100% polyester. (It reminds me a lot of the Loot for Her January scarf.) Here is a better look at the sheerness:
When it comes to fashion items, I prefer the subtle nod to fandoms, so this works well for me. And you can twist it around so just a portion of the pattern shows, too, if you prefer!
My Melody Charm – Exclusive!
The outline on this charm is done in gold metal with enamel fill. (It’s about 1.5 inches long.)
It’s a high-quality charm, and it pairs well with the Hello Kitty key chain from the first Sanrio Small Gift Crate. (I’m thinking this means we might get a new charm in each box.)
Hello Kitty & Mimmy Letter Set – Exclusive!
This set includes 10 sticker sheets, 5 diecut sheets, 10 envelopes, and 1 sticker sheet:
The theme for this box is friendship, so it makes sense that Hello Kitty would appear with her twin sister and best friend Mimmy!
This die cut house set includes 5 cards with a lined back for messages.
And of course, the envelopes are equally cute! (The paper on the notepad and envelopes is pretty thin, so this isn’t a high-quality stationery set, but it is an adorable one.)
Sanrio Friendship Trinket Mini Tape Dispenser
This is the only non-exclusive item in the box. It’s a tiny little tape dispenser that pairs well with the stationery set.
Verdict: No surprise – I think this box is adorable. The value is difficult to determine since almost every item in this box is exclusive, but the cost breaks down to about $6.67 an exclusive item. (I’m not factoring in any value for the tiny tape dispenser.) I think $6.67 an exclusive Sanrio item is good! For me, the value of items seemed a little higher in the first box, but that’s more of a personal preference.
What do you think of the second Sanrio Small Gift Crate?
