Remember those long cold mornings at “Three Apples”? Standing in line early in the morning and waiting for gift bags? Dealing with people budging [butting, skipping, cutting] in line? Seeing people getting frustrated because gift bags were only available to the first 100 visitors in line?
Hello Kitty Fan Appreciation Day Gift Bag. This bag made my day, the bag was quite heavy with miscellaneous Hello Kitty gifts inside, including Hello Kitty Strawberry News, Hello Kitty lotion, notebook, mirror, Pez dispenser, chap stick, candies, puzzle and coloring book ;]
For Halloween, I dressed up in a Hello Kitty yukata and Dave from Sanrio gifted me a Hello Kitty Fan. And I also received a Paint Your Own Hello Kitty Bank for bringing in a self-inspired carved pumpkin :]
Hello Kitty Birthday Tiara and Wand were given out during the birthday cake cutting ceremony for kids, I guess I am still a kid after all :]
Hello Kitty Meet the Artist Party Gift Bag: This is one of my favorite gift bags, it really made sense how they gave us a coloring and activity book, plus a shimmering art package with metallic pens on the day the we met the artists. I can’t wait to doodle on my new arts and crafts book!
Hello Kitty Bats and Cats Masquerade Gift Bag: Part 1. When I called the prior day, Royal/T Cafe informed me that gift bags were given out in the morning. After waiting in line for a couple hours, I realize that JapanLA posted that gift bags were to be given out in the evening. I was a bit frustrated, but when doors open at 10am with about 20 people in line. Dave from Sanrio informed us that he would give us something just for coming out :]
Hello Kitty Bats and Cats Masquerade Gift Bag: Part 2. This was given out in the evening, Hello Kitty desk calender, I LOVE IT <3
Hello Kitty Fashion Show: Part 1. This was by far the crappiest gift bag, but I guess since it was the last day they probably ran out of gifts? A lot of people was disappointed, some waited 5-6 hours for this bag :[ Look on the bright side, Hello Kitty straws!!
Hello Kitty Fashion Show: Part 2. After receiving gift bags from the morning, I assumed they were completely out of gifts. But when we got inside, I saw rows of Hello Kitty tote bags <3 You can also get this tote from Toy”R”Us, happy hunting!
Hello Kitty Three Apples Gift Bags: Part 1.
Hello Kitty Three Apples Gift Bag: Part 2.
These gift bags were left sitting in the hallway outside of my room ever since Three Apples. I finally decided to go over all my gift bags and I realized I had too many duplicate items. I will be donating most of these gifts to a local toy drive this holiday season and hopefully they will go to great homes with children to help “Spread the love of Hello Kitty” <3
