Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate that day of sweetness by having sweet Hello Kitty with you?

 

Sanrio has released two heart-shaped pillows with Hello Kitty’s face as its design, just in time for Valentine’s Day. These are made of polyester, and are big enough to be huggable - you can even pour your heart out to her as you squeeze the pillow tight!

 

 

Guess what? It hasn’t been released, and yet “The Adventures of Hello Kitty & Friends” has already won an award!

The series has won the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2007 Digital Entertainment Award for Best Digital Animation TV series, held last 21 January 2008. The body recognizes the best works produced in Hong Kong in terms of digital entertainment.

 

“The Adventures of Hello Kitty & Friends” is the first Sanrio series made entirely in CGI, and it follows the stories of friends Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, Badtz-Maru, Pochacco, My Melody, and Keroppi, with the special appearances of other well-loved characters. While the tales may be funny and entertaining, they are also loaded with values, making it a show worth watching by the whole family.

Being the fashion icon that she is, Hello Kitty did not waste any time taking part in the latest trend that hit worldwide: tokidoki.

 

Tokidoki is a lifestyle brand inspired by the culture of which its name came from (it means “sometimes” in Japanese). It has invaded the fashion scene, appearing on clothes and different kinds of accessories. It is automatically eye-catching, because it provides a combination of cuteness and sophistication - traits that Hello Kitty has been associated with for the past years. No wonder it was easy for Sanrio to release their own version of the products!

No, your beloved Sanrio characters aren’t getting all wrinkled. This is just one of the many designs featuring the Sanrio characters, all appearing on fun jigsaw puzzles that the whole family can enjoy solving together. What’s really cool about it is that three of these feature promo shots from the upcoming (and much-awaited) “The Adventures of Hello Kitty and Friends” 3-D Animation, so you can actually get the chance to see your favorite Sanrio characters in all their 3-D glory!

Strange news to Hello Kitty fans: Sanrio Japan recently released a toy collection featuring their key icon not only with a mouth, but without a nose as well.

There are three “mouthed” Hello Kitty designs you can choose from, each of which has three items following that: a hair tie, a mini-towel, and a wire mascot. You can twist and turn the toy in whatever position you want her to be, because the limbs are pretty flexible. You can even make her balance on one foot, because its hands and feet have magnets that you can attach to a metallic surface to keep her on her toes.
