Short Sanrio.com Review!




Hi all! I've ordered from Sanrio.com multiple times in the past and figured I'd do a short review of my general experiences ordering directly from Sanrio. Oftentimes, Sanrio.com features products which I don't typically see anywhere else except for the Japanese Sanrio site . Sadly, while the Japanese Sanrio site features many more products and items marketed to adult fans, I haven't found anything to indicate that they ship internationally.

As usual, Sanrio.com shipped my order out in a prompt fashion, about two days after I originally placed my order. I was kind of overly enthusiastic the day I got the package, so I forgot to take photos of the packaging itself. The items were well packaged in a brown box bound with thick tape reading Sanrio again and again. My only complaint for the shipping would the be price which for my roughly $40 package wound up being $10. That's a little steep, and I don't tend to see the site running free shipping events save for big holiday weekends.

For my latest purchase, I grabbed a laptop bag. I've been looking for a laptop sleeve for my 13" Macbook Air for a while now but haven't been able to find an option that really suits me until now. The sleeve is a soft shade of pastel pink and lilac with a creme colored strap. I've been carrying it for a couple of weeks now and have found it to be really sturdy with no damage which is impressive as I tend to be clumsy/rough with anything I carry regularly. The main disadvantage is that the pouch isn't big enough to also hold the power cord well. I keep my power cord in a separate makeup bag in my messenger bag already, though, so that's not much of an issue for me.

I'd been alerted that the bag was available through one of Sanrio.com's regular newsletters which profile what items are new or currently on sale. Their newsletters regularly feature deals where you get free items by entering promo codes at checkout. This time around, I entered the code TISSUEROLL to get a free Gudetama toilet paper roll. My husband is pretty obsessed with Gudetama, so I tend to grab any cute merchandise I see of the lazy little egg. The paper is really cute, and I of course don't see myself using it any time soon. xD

Overall, Sanrio.com is definitely a place I would recommend to order from. While the shipping is a bit steep, you can find really interesting items and promotional freebies to increase your cute character collection.

    Since I'm from Canada... a lot of things cost so much to ship here that $10 sounds like a great deal XD
