Holly's Bear

Year Created: 1994

Check out this fashionable bear! He’s quite grown-up, and he loves wearing a different bow every day. He sometimes says, “Hugs make life bearable.”

Beep beep! Check out this week’s featured Dream Studio video!

Hello Kitty Beetle doesn’t feature a cat-and-bug crossbreed. Instead, it has pictures of a custom-made Volkswagen Beetle with just about any and every tool and accessory on it bearing the cute and familiar beribboned kitty’s face. From the seatbelt straps to the seat covers, it is the ultimate Hello Kitty car.

Every Hello Kitty and car fan would surely want to check this out - maybe even own the car!

 SanrioTown Europe was officially launched August 22, 2007, at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany.

 Of course, Hello Kitty was right in on the action, greeting and welcoming the guests who arrived. Being the popular star that she is, representatives of two German TV stations came running to take pictures of her as soon as she appeared, as well as the SanrioTown booth.

The SanrioTown booth, which was designed to look like a beach tower, also had a computer where people can register at SanrioTown on the spot for free. There was also a screen that played the trailer of the upcoming Hello Kitty MMOG. A team of friendly SanrioTown personnel assisted the visitors of the booth, helping them out in exploring SanrioTown and handing out giveaways.

Fans, regardless of age or gender flocked to have a picture with Hello Kitty. Not only were the photos displayed on the big screen, but the ones who had the best shots with Kitty were given prizes, including a pink Ipod, shirts, handbags, and keychains.

Dear Daniel: Daniel Star’s birthday is on May 3.  He is very sentimental and a bit naive. He loves dancing and playing the piano, as well as eating cheesecake and yoghurt. His biggest dream is to become a photographer or a celebrity. He is a very snappy dresser.

He and Kitty were childhood companions, but when his father, a photographer, was posted at Africa, the rest of his family (including his Mama and younger brother) moved there.
