Hello Kitty Polaroid

Monday, August 4th, 2008

 

There are a few Hello Kitty things in life that I wish I would own when it was released, but didn’t get a chance or the money to get, and thinking back I am glad I didn’t pick it up then because it would otherwise be lying somewhere now collecting dust.  One of such thing is the Hello Kitty Polaroid:

Hello Kitty Polaroid

This must have been from quite a few years ago, maybe close to ten (!)  I remembered when it was first released I really really wanted one, but it can’t be purchased anywhere near me so I finally gave up the idea.  And I guess thinking back it was a wise choice coz I was told Polaroid has stopped making the instant films now and if I did got it back then I wonder how many times would I have actually used it : )

As cute as this Hello Kitty Polaroid is, I guess sometime money is better in the wallet hehehe

Hello Kitty x Silly Thing for Male Fans

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

 

More Hello Kitty Black Wonder by Silly Thing is released via Think-Silly.com’s blog, and this time - I can say a WOW!

The theme for the two new items is Hello Kitty’s ribbon, only in black, and, it was designed for Men, yes!  Men!

They include a tailored jacket, and a button up shirt - both very tastefully decorated, although I am not sure who is really going to wear them - I guess it was meant as a collectible more than anything?

The front of the jacket:

And the buttoned shirt complete with a "Hello Kitty bow tie":

This is much more like what I would expect from these guys!  : )  Good work!

Million dollars Hello Kitty

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Cost cover 1 million Japanese Yen, this super luxury Hello Kitty figure include over 40 pieces of REAL diamonds:

 

Look at the details:

 

It’s very stunning but I think if I have a million yen to spare I will probably either put it into my mortgage or treat myself to an ultimate handbag (lol)

Well, as one member puts it, if we can’t own it, looking at the pictures will make us happy nonetheless!

Hello Kitty X FC Barcelona

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

I am not a big soccer fan but having been to Barcelona before I remember liking their FC logo in bright and cheerful red/blue/yellow shade, so I was very happy to come across a series of Hello Kitty x FC Barcelona plushes while surfing on the web:

 

All of them wear FC Barcelona uniforms and are limited release at 500 pcs.  They were all sold out per the official website, but since I am not looking to expand my plush collection, it’s good to just take a look at them in pictures and be cheered by them.

Eh … I so want to go back to Barcelona again one day!

Hello Kitty Barbie - generation 2

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Sanrio in Japan has just come out with a new generation of Hello Kitty Barbie:

It looks a lot more sophiscated than the first generation, at least comparing to the one I have in my collection - which looks like a regular Barbie doll with Hello Kitty stickers on it.

The new Barbie will be available for pre-order on June 3rd with expected delivery date of July 26th at 5,670 yen each, for more details, see this link on Sanrio’s official website.

Hello Kitty vintage phone - will you sell yours?

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Browsing around Yahoo! Hong Kong auctions again to see if there’s anything new worth adding to my collection and I saw thsi Hello Kitty vintage dial phone in blue up for auction at HK$2,800:

I got the same thing in my collection, only it’s in red and probably not in as good condition as the one pictured in the auction.  Nonetheless, I don’t think I would sell it even if someone offered me HK$28,000 …

On a side note, if someone is selling the vintage Hello Kitty TV for HK$2,800, maybe I will consider buying it (lol)

Status of my Hello Kitty collection …

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Just before I show all of you what my collection looks like now …
let me just do a quick recap! 

This is what it looks like shortly after the feature of me on one of the Hello Kitty collector magazine in 2003:

And in 2004 after the phone interview with one of Japan’s radio station:

(The wall was a Birthday Present from my mom)

My mom & I both moved into new places in 2005 and all my kitties got moved to the basement

In 2007, my husband & I moved into a new house for our baby and I got a “Hello Kitty Room” just for me

So … after a few weeks of packing and organizing, here is what it looks like now:

Love it? Or hate it?

Would love to see your wall / room / bed full of kitties too!
