Sanrio 50th Anniversary Event

Earlier this evening I met up with Young, Trung, and some friends to check out the Sanrio 50th Anniversary event, at the Santa Monica Barker Hanger.  Last year, Young and I attended the Hello Kitty Birthday celebration at Royal T in Culver City, and that was tons of fun.

First off, parking was $10, and it was pretty empty when I arrived at 8pm.  Yes, I know it is a weekday, but the HK Birthday event last year had lines going down the street everyday.

I will probably get mauled by HK and Sanrio fans for saying this, but this years concept was cute, but the event was pretty boring and lifeless.  For such a huge space, they only had a small section of activities and carnival type games.  The mini golf and mini ferris wheel were cute, but definitely aimed towards the 10-16 age group.  The pop up store featured not so exciting gift items, to include plush dolls, resuable bags, erasers, and other overpriced knick knacks.  Honestly, you can find a better selection of cute items at any regular Sanrio store.

The art selection was quite bleak, compared to the creative pieces they showcased at Royal T the previous year.  There were a couple of pieces that stood out was the piece that looked like a painting, but was made entirely of jelly beans!   If you missed this event, trust me, you really didn’t miss out on much!

Hope you enjoy some photos I snapped from the event.
