OKWAP Hello Kitty Phones

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Two years ago, Hello Kitty and OKWAP came up with their first line of Hello Kitty phones, which many of you probably know about already. But for flashback purposes, here’s a pic:

2005 OKWAP Hello Kitty Phones

Pic from Phonedaily. Cute no? ^^ Anyway, what this article is really about is the new OKWAP phone, and be prepared, it’s love and a half.

2007 OKWAP Hello Kitty Phone

I love love love this design (I watch too much Oprah haha), seriously! This is the OKWAP C150T which I think is a very cool phone. Pic from Engadget. As you can see it doesn’t have a normal keypad, but it comes with a stylus for its touch-screen.

It has a 2MP camera and is dual-sim by default. I know of some other phones that can be modified to be dual-sim, but from what I hear they aren’t that safe. Sad news is, it’s only available in China as far as I know. :(

Under the cut, you’ll find the super cute Hello Kitty themes that come with the phone. I guarantee you’ll love them, no matter how you like your Kitty ;)

Hello Kitty LED Glass

Friday, October 26th, 2007

LED Glass

Woohoo I love this! It doubles as a Christmas decor too, look at the pretty lights~ *o*

I like the design too, it’s cute heehee. If you wanna see what it looks like with the lights off, just check its page on eBay.

Well, this obviously isn’t official Sanrio, but if I had any say in this design, I would’ve demanded that the kitty on the left be in yellow. I mean, that’s obviously Mimmy, they should give her that at least. :(

This one is 8.50 USD, and is about 9cm high. The LEDs blink randomly, with the on-off button at the bottom. If you need to wash it, the base where the lights are comes off. It would make a nice gift~ ^^

First, I found my last post’s cube clock on eBay! Lookit~

Hello Kitty Cube Clock

Click the image to check the eBay page. I found out from the pic, that it DOES light, yay! So for any of my overseas readers who might wanna get it, you know what to do. ^^

According to the seller, it’s 8×8x8 cm, and also has a sound alarm. It runs on 2 AA batteries.

Although the bad news is that it costs US$9.40 PLUS shipping there. And it’s the exact same one, as you can see, and the one I saw was also very well made. I don’t get it. Anyways, it’s good news for us I guess superbong~ XD

Second, I’m really happy that I’m getting so many readers, even from outside Sanriotown. Who woulda thunk! Thanks to all of you~ ^^ I’ll do my best!

(Btw I’m thinking about doing something for my 10,000th hit, a Kiriban or something. Any ideas?)

***

Third, while going through my comments, I noticed that my cactus friend post is not only exciting to Hello Kitty fans, but to Tokidoki fans too. Apparently, they’ve been waiting for it for some time now. So I hope the collaboration comes out soon! ^^

Hello Kitty Cube Clock

I went shopping yesterday, and I found this super cute cube clock on the way to the car~ ^^ I don’t think it’s official Sanrio, but it’s really well-made and heavy. I didn’t have cash at the time and we were in a hurry so I couldn’t run to the ATM and back, but I’m going back for it! Good thing I got this pic though heehee. :P

Let’s see. It tells the time, day, date, and temperature in °C. Cute! And it even has that thermometer icon. I didn’t get to ask if it’s got a light, and I didn’t notice a switch but I was in a hurry. And it’s only about US$2!

I tried looking for something like this online, but I can’t seem to find it. Sorry~ @_@

Tokidoki loves Hello Kitty

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

Tokidoki, whom many of you may already love, is working on a collaboration with our favorite Kitty. The news isn’t that hot, but as for my post title, I can prove it!

Simone Legno at work. And what’s that? A Hello Kitty Pendant!Aha! A Hello Kitty pendant! XD

Well yes they ARE doing a collabo after all rofl. Btw, to those who don’t know what Tokidoki is, it’s an Italian brand that features designs from Simone Legno, very Japanese culture inspired. They make super cute designs too ^^ Btw I got those pics from the Tokidoki blog.

And NOW! I bring you..

Hello Kitty Cactus

Hello Kitty Cactus, designed by Tokidoki! Waaah!! It’s so prickly cute LOL (I apologize) XD Okay, the heart-crossbones is the Tokidoki logo, and the cactus doggie beside Kitty is “Bastardino”, one of the original Cactus Friends. As you can see, this is an apparel line, mostly for bags.

Hello Kitty Cactus

In the Tokidoki site, the Hello Kitty collaboration page isn’t up yet, so I’m guessing this is some sort of sneak preview~

I can’t wait @_@!

Gangsta Hello Kitty

Gangsta Hello Kitty

I found this on the on some guy named Joseph’s Myspace, I’ve seen some of the Kitties he’s made (like the Vader one and the Homer Simpson one haha) but I’ve never seen this!

I actually like it XD That’s just me of course, but I really do like that cap! This reminds me of Missy Elliott actually :P Kitty Elliott? I wonder if Missy likes Hello Kitty haha.

Oh btw, as for political correctness issues, that’s his term not mine ^^; And if you’re wondering, Alex is apparently a friend of his that he made this for. It’s not a real toy, it’s just an illustration, sorry folks~ :P

Hello Kitty Key Chain Box

Hello Kitty Key Chain Box

I feel really bad about this, coz I can’t find a better pic! T_T Anyways this is a Hello Kitty Key Chain Box, and I found it on DreamKitty. For those of you like me who often lose their keys~ XD

Dimensions are 12.5″ x 7.75″ x 10, and it costs US$50. ^^ Oh and you can put other stuff in it too. Coz I love dangling earrings and lose them a lot too rofl XD

Oh oh btw…

You guys notice that Sanriotown was down over the weekend? T_T I’m not sure how long but I was checking it yesterday and I couldn’t log in. I think there are still some problems now but it’s pretty much okay I guess… I mean, I got to post. ANYWAY, I found this official statement thingy on the main blog:

Hello everyone. If some of you have encountered any problems with SanrioTown this weekend, we’re terribly sorry for this, but our servers have reached too high a load, causing the site to go into downtime. Rest assured that no data was lost during this period, and everything will soon be back to normal. If you notice any problems, do let us know by sending an email to support@hellokitty.com.

Again, we’re really sorry about this, and we thank you for continuing to support SanrioTown.

Wah I hope it goes back to normal really soon, it’s hard refreshing and checking back so often @_@

Hello Kitty Epson Laptops

Hello Kitty Epson Laptop

Remember my old post about the crystal-studded LaVie G Hello Kitty laptop by NEC? Well here’s something I’m sure you’ll like too~ Epson just made two new Hello Kitty laptops! I got these from Shiny Shiny. Here’s the other one:

Hello Kitty Epson Laptop

And here are the specs:

+ Epson A4 Hello Kitty Monogrammed Laptop
+ Weight: 3KG
+ Operating system: Windows Vista
+ Hard Disk: 80GB
+ RAM: 1GB
+ Processor: 1.73GHz Intel Celeron M430

What I kinda don’t get is why this also costs about the same price as the Swarovski one, they cost US$1,640, just 10 bucks cheaper, and the specs are slightly lower too. Hmm. Aaaaanyways, they come with Hello Kitty themes moohaha~

Hello Kitty Themes
I personally like the first design (the colorful one) and the second theme (Kitty and Mimmy on the seesaw). I like the My Computer icon with Kitty’s head as a monitor! XD

Hello Kitty Pink Head

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Tarina Tarantino Pink Head Hello Kitty

These are actually earrings from Tarina Tarantino’s Hello Kitty collection, as part of a collaboration thingy. Tarina Tarantino is a famous LA-based jewelry designer, she makes fun funky stuff mostly. She sports the pink hair a lot, so I guess it’s safe to say this version of Kitty was patterned after her ^^

Here are some other Pink Head stuff, actually these are my favorite off the collection:

Tarina Tarantino Pink Head Hello Kitty Biker ModTarina Tarantino Pink Head Hello Kitty Short Hair

The one on the left is called the Moto-Mod Crystal Framed Ring, and those are pink Swarovski crystals (Hello Kitty does a lot of Swarovski, I noticed haha~). That one costs US$88. The second one costs US$63. Both are fully adjustable.

As for the earrings, they cost US$88 and the Hello Kitty mascots themselves are 1.25″ tall. Those are Swarovskis too :)

I think these are some of the best mods I know for Hello Kitty. Very very fashionable~ ^^ Btw you can check those out at Tarina Tarantino’s website. I wish they made a plush or figurine for the biker Kitty though *_*

Hello Kitty Blindboxed

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Aha! I found them! If you remember my previous post about the Rain and Sea Hello Kitty, I had no info on them at all. Now I do! :P

Hello Kitty Blindboxed

Moohahaha! I feel like I won the lottery! *-* Well not quite since I don’t have them yet. Haha~ SO MANY! Let’s see, the rain and sea ones are there…there’s woodgrain, fruit, tulips, sprinkles, and some I’m not so sure of. Here’s the Strawberry Kitty:

Blindboxed Kitty

I found them on Urban Outfitters~ And apparently there are 12 designs. They’re called “Blindboxed” because kinda like gashapons, you buy them but don’t know what’s inside till you open the box. Meaning, you can’t choose :P

So to collect them all you might have to keep buying, twice as many, thrice as many even. But they only cost 8 USD each, so it’s not that bad haha. They’re smart eh?

Btw there’s supposed to be an ice cream Kitty, but it’s not in the picture I guess. Dimensions are 2.5″ x 2″ x 3″, and they’re made of vinyl. Haha, this discovery pleases me. *-*
