Spring 2018 Sanrio Small Gift Crate Review
The info sheet doubles as a poster! I love the boho flower crowns on all of the characters.
Exclusive Multi-Character Tote Bag
I love collecting tote bags! I like to think it’s a relatively practical hobby since I end up using my totes as purses, grocery bags, and even laundry bags on occasion. This cute canvas bag will be perfect for spring/summer farmers market trips with its retro, flower-child vibe. There are designs on the front AND back of the bag, which is rare, and the designs on the back are made to look like patches that have been embroidered onto the fabric. How sweet!
Exclusive Sanrio Bamboo Travel Mug
This BPA-free mug features a silicone lid and removable sleeve to keep your fingers from getting too warm. The pattern follows the same aesthetic as the box and the tote bag. I love how cohesive everything in the box is! This mug will make my morning tea or afternoon coffee a lot more fun.
Exclusive Sanrio Embroidered Pin Set
I love this idea! Patches are really in right now, but they’re kind of a hassle to add to bags and jackets. (You either have to sew ’em or iron them on.) They’re more permanent, too. These patch designs have safety pins attached to the back so that you can still get the look of embroidered patches without having to permanently alter your bag or clothes. Each pin is a little over an inch big, so they’re perfect for adding a small but super charming accent to your look.
Exclusive Chococat Baseball Cap
I love the ’90s style “dad hat” trend, but I don’t always love how canvas caps make my head look. If they’re too thin or shapeless, they make my head look a little small and weird. This hat, by comparison, is exactly what I’d want in a baseball cap! It’s surprisingly soft, and the baby blue color pops in a really cool, springy way. More importantly, the front of the hat has enough structure to it that it stands up a little bit—maybe not as much as super cool flat-brim hats do, but enough that it has some perk and life to it. According to the info poster, subscribers either got this hat or a pink My Melody version. I looooove Chococat, and I’m a big fan of blue, so I’m thrilled with this style!
Exclusive Multi-Character Crew Neck
How cute!!! I’m always cold, so a sweatshirt is a great pick for me, even in a spring box. The pretty pastel palette of this classic gray crewneck makes it just the thing for spring evenings when the temperature cools down. The design on the front of the shirt matches the pattern on the tote bag, and on the back hip, there’s an illustrated mushroom patch for an extra bit of adorableness!
Here’s me in my retro Sanrio spring outfit! This look makes me feel like I’m the coach of the cutest neighborhood softball team ever!!!
Sanrio Trinket – My Melody Stamp
I love the design of this My Melody stamper, though I kind of wish it had come with an ink pad. I think it’s intended almost as a bonus item (it’s the only piece that doesn’t follow the boho flowers design scheme), so I’m not too surprised that it feels less impressive than the other finds.
Verdict: This box RULES. As a Sanrio fan, I’m swooning for the 5 exclusives (and one bonus item) in this box. As I mentioned in the review, I love how cohesive all of the items feel—the style/design is all the same and the quality level, more importantly, feels consistently great from item to item. I guess the consistent design could be a bummer if you’re really not feeling the boho vibes. For instance, if the design scheme only appeared on the tote bag, you’d still have 4 other items that might fit your tastes better. But for me, it’s all good! I love that the pieces are exclusive, too. I’m not left with the feeling that I could find the items at a local toy store or Japanese gift shop.
