Sneak Peek: Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer!

November 1 is Hello Kitty’s birthday and Hello Kitty Online has something special in store for you! The fun starts on October 28, 2010, in London! Read on for a preview.


Attention new players: we recommend that you download the full version of HKO (it’s free!) now to make sure you are all set to join this amazing event!

New mechanic!
And we’re not talking about when Badzt-Maru tries to fix stuff! On Hello Kitty’s birthday, try a fascinating new system to deal with grumpy monsters! There’s a saying about honey and vinegar…

Get a little taste of winter!
Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer will take you to a jolly little area called the Snowy Wonderland: it’s wonderful, it has snow, and peril stalks among the snowmen and party balloons.

New items!
Some of them belong to the fireworks family! Some can be upgraded! Plus: Learn how to wrap a gift! ‘Nuff said!

Quaternary Megafauna!
According to the good Professor Doctor (and many other less illustrious authorities), animals of gigantic size trundled all over our planet until just over 10,000 years ago, before being wiped out in the Quaternary extinction event. In Sanrio Land there was no extinction event….


Special hats!
Come, be merry, and behold some very slick and fashionable party hats. These hats are so fantastic, they risk blowing themselves away! You might even manage to own one yourself!

Another good cause!
Hello Kitty Online is about helping people, and this event is no exception! Participate in this funfest to earn rewards and generate donations to charity – all for free! Compete as an individual or a guild, or just participate to have a good time - your efforts will count towards charity either way!

There will be cake.
Maybe. Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of cake after completing a sequence of arduous and demanding tasks?

Join us for birthday fun and games beginning on October 28, 2010. We’ll post more details about this epochal event a day or two before it begins, so check back here!

The Hello Kitty Online Team

You are cordially invited to a special HKO charity event & celebration: from October 28 to November 15, 2010, take part in Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer! There’s a lot going on during this event and only a limited time to experience it, so we have created this handy guide to the celebrations. Keep reading to become an expert on Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer!

Getting started

The Party Clown in Sanrio Harbour will point you toward a secret passage to London, where festivities for Hello Kitty’s birthday are underway. Follow this quest to participate in this special event and travel to a new mini-zone!


Your efforts during this event will determine the sum of money that Sanrio Digital will donate to two worthy causes.

On October 18, super typhoon Megi slammed into the Philippines, causing widespread damage including rendering 200,000 people homeless and destroying hundreds of thousands of tons worth of food crops. The aid organization Save the Children is working to provide relief in the affected regions. The higher your donation score in this special event, the more money Sanrio Digital will donate to Save the Children. Two thirds of the total donation amount are reserved for Save the Children.

One third of the total donation is reserved for the Asian Youth Orchestra, which offers tuition-free opportunities for young pre-professional musicians to hone their skills and be exposed to varied artistic experiences.

Sparklers – a new hand-held item to cheer up monsters

We have added sparklers to HKO. These sparklers are hand-held fireworks that never run out and that let you cheer up grumpy monsters.

There are 11 sparklers to find/acquire. Your very first sparkler is obtained from the Item Mall free of charge. Sparklers are sold by the Cheerful Merchant in London. The Item Mall also offers two sparklers for people who want to skip a few upgrade stages.

There are two types of sparklers: basic and upgraded. Basic sparklers can be upgraded once using a Blue, Red, or Gold Gem. An upgraded sparkler cannot be upgraded again.

Precise steps to upgrade your sparkler

Unequip the sparkler and make sure it is in your inventory. Right-click on the upgrade gem and a dialog window will appear. Ignore the prompt and instead right-click on a sparkler. Then left-click on the green check mark in the dialog window and your sparkler will be upgraded.

Donating Birthday Gifts

When you cheer up a grumpy monster you have a chance to get a Birthday Gift from it. Hello Kitty will take the gifts you bring her so she can donate them to charity. The more gifts you bring, the higher your overall (and your guild’s) donation score. Nicely wrapped presents are worth more, so you should gift-wrap each present you find before you give it to Hello Kitty. Note: Red Gems can also be donated to Hello Kitty (but cannot be wrapped).

Blue, Red, and Gold Gems

Three types of gems are used to upgrade your sparkler. The item tooltip of each sparkler will tell you what you need to upgrade. Blue Gems upgrade sparklers and have no other uses. Red Gems can upgrade sparklers or be donated to Hello Kitty. Blue and Red Gems can only be used once and then vanish; Gold Gems (obtained from the Item Mall) can be used to upgrade an unlimited number of sparklers.

Dream Fragments

Dream Fragments are the currency used to purchase sparklers from the Cheerful Merchant. You earn Dream Fragments by donating gifts to Hello Kitty and by cheering up grumpy monsters.

The Main Event

On November 1 (Hello Kitty’s birthday) and on November 15 (end of the event) there will be a main event held at a specific time. Pay attention to the system messages and GM instructions to participate.

Item Mall updates & specials

Throughout this event, look out for special offers in the Item Mall! You can find special bundle offers containing useful items that will give you a leg up against the competition. And, back by popular demand, we have reintroduced special Hello Kitty vintage rare items in the item mall – get them quick while they are still on discount!

Find out more about these great deals at the Item Mall Specials page and keep your ears open for in-game announcements about surprise flash-discounts!

We hope you enjoy Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer!

Hi there everybody! ^_^

Hello everyone! Nice to meet all of you! I’m GM-Chrysolite from the International Server. Some players just call me Chrys for short because of my long name…XD

I’m a pretty new GM here in HKO. I really like the game so far, it’s very cute, nice, unique, relaxing and most of all, fun! I also really like the players a lot. They’re so friendly and helpful, especially to newbies. I stay most of the time in Sanrio Harbour so if you spot me don’t be shy to give me a hello haha! (I won’t bite I promise LOL) If anyone has any problems, questions or concerns just feel free to PM me or any other GM and we’ll do our best to help you. =)

Have a nice day and hope to see you in-game! Always remember that HKO is all about friendliness and having fun and we’ll make sure you all experience that!

Also for those who are curious behind the meaning of my name Chrysolite it is a kind of gemstone with an olive-green color. It is also known as Olivine. It is one of the most common minerals on Earth, and has also been identified in meteorites, the Moon and the planet Mars.

Attached is a picture of a Chrysolite below:
