Have you seen the Sanrio Small Gift Crate from Loot Crate? It’s a quarterly subscription box with Sanrio full of themed items that you can’t get anywhere else. I’ve been interested in checking it out but after my spendy experience with the Pusheen Box, I was wary of ordering. A helpful SCK reader told me they hadn’t been charged any customs fees so I decided to give it a go.
Shipping is very cheap for international but that does mean there’s no tracking or even a shipping notification. I just opened my door one day to find this cute box in my porch! For UK readers, I can confirm it just arrives by Royal Mail and there are no customs fees, hurray!
I ordered the Summer Vacation themed box and was a tiny bit disappointed that the box design wasn’t more colourful and summery. That was only until I opened it and found something quite special.
Yep, you can turn it inside out for a super cute new design – a suitcase with some really cute details. Want to see what was inside? Of course you do!
Hello Kitty Beach Figure
The first item is a collectible figure featuring Hello Kitty in a beach theme. It really looks like it’s full of water and the sand at the bottom is a nice touch. This would be a cool addition to your collection and to remind you of summer sunshine during dreary winter days.
Sanrio Beach Towel
I was so impressed when I unpacked this towel. It’s huge and so colourful featuring Hello Kitty and friends at the beach. It’s especially nice to see some less popular characters like Chococat and Tuxedo Sam making an appearance. The towel is made of good quality terrycloth and would be great for lounging on the beach or just for trips to the swimming pool.
Keroppi Flip Flops
When you sign up, you’re asked for your t-shirt and shoe sizes for exciting apparel items. This box included some very colourful Keroppi flip flops. The sizing is great and they look pretty sturdy, if you can bear to use them.
Sanrio Beach Tote
How cute is this bag?! I think it’s my favourite item in the box, just beating the towel. It’s made of a thick vinyl plastic and smells just like a beach ball for happy childhood holiday memories. It’s perfect for the beach as it’s waterproof and can easily be cleaned if it gets full of sand. The only slight problem is that it was folded up quite tightly in the box leaving big creases. I had to stuff a cushion inside for a couple of weeks to ease those out but now it looks great.
