Sanrio Small Gift launch party kicks off 10 days of fun in Los Angeles

Small-Gift-La-49

I don't have a Boing Boing business card, but I smooth talked my way to the front of the interminable line to get into Sanrio's Small Gift launch party last night, held in a hangar at Santa Monica Airport. Set up like a carnival, there were games, a miniature golf course, a ferris wheel, and lots of food -- I was treated to Pink's hot dogs, Beard Papa's cream puffs, frozen yogurt, and enough Sanrio adorableness to shut down my pancreas.

If you missed the Small Gifts party, there's still plenty of activities in store.

For example, our friends at Flux have created some fantastic workshops with Crowded Teeth, Gary Baseman, Naoshi, and others that will be featured this weekend and next. You can read about the workshops and purchase tickets here.

Small Gift LA will be in Santa Monica from Nov 12-21.
