A-nation Presents: Hello Kitty for Boys!

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

A-Nation x Choro Q x Hello Kitty

This is so weird! I mean, aside fro the fact that this IS Hello Kitty, this one has absolutely no girliness in it!

Okay, shock has passed.

This is a limited-edition item that costs ¥3,000 each (about US$26), made especially for A-nation ‘07. It’s mostly made of resin and rubber

So what exactly is “A-Nation”? I’m not that up-to-date with Jpop stuff, but from what I gather, it’s a huge tour by many popular Jpop (Japanese Pop) artists on a special stage, held for a cause. I believe it’s been held for the past several years now, and hundreds of thousands of people go to see this concert every year.

So this is basically a collaboration between 3 parties: A-nation, toy manufacturer Choro Q, and of course Sanrio~

I think blue is A-nation’s theme color, at least for this year. Btw if any of you have more info on A-nation (as my Japanese isn’t that good), I’d appreciate any help at all ^^

Click the link to read the rest of the entry, there’s another (BLUE) promo item for this event, this time with Be@rbrick!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been posting these past few days, been really busy with the holidays. ^^;

We had a wonderful Noche Buena (the traditional meal at Christmas Eve here) and then I got cute presents! Except… nobody gave me anything Hello Kitty. No comment >_< Actually my real Christmas present is a new PC coz my laptop’s dying…

But I’ll be waiting for the price drop after the holidays for that~ ^^

Merry Christmas!

Moohaha~ This is my first ever pic of myself to post here. GASP! I’m so… Asian! Hahaha anyways, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Happy Holidays everyone! ^o^

Hello Kitty Graffiti Baby Tee

Hello Kitty Graffiti Tee

Although graffiti done on the streets is a definite no-no (Hello Kitty would not approve!), there’s absolutely nothing wrong with graffiti style tees! Moohaha~

So this one I found on a store site called Stylin Online. According to them, it’s a licensed Hello Kitty baby tee made by Mighty Fine, and they’re pretty proud of the quality too. There’s another design that I really liked, here it is:

Hello Kitty Grungy Baby Tee

That one you can find here, on the same shop. They both cost US$25 each. Not bad if they’re licensed. I wish they had more designs, I really like their style :P

P.S. Hmm where is everybody?

Sweet Hello Kitty

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Just saw these Hello Kitty sugar candies, and they’re adorable~

Hello Kitty Meringue Flowers

They’re Hello Kitty message sugar candies that actually serve as nice gifts with messages on the candy plates! The messages range from a simple “Thank you” to “Congratulations on entering college!”

As you can see, Hello Kitty comes in different colors here. but I can’t help but look at the yellow one and think of Mimmy ^^;

Anyways, here’s how they’re packaged~

Hello Kitty Message Sugar

As usual, I probably won’t be able to eat this if I had it. >_< I bet it tastes…well, sweet XD A bit pricey though, for the whole set (the round container at the top), you have to spend 3,990 Yen or about US$35.

Hmm I guess not though, I mean they’re really adorable~ ^^

Hello Kitty Mini Bowling Set

Hello Kitty Mini Bowling Set

Another one from Eikoh, but this time I have purchase info ^^

It’s called the Hello Kitty American Retro Bowling Set, probably in commemoration of the time when bowling became hugely popular in the United States.

To use it, you have to aim the little chute thingy to roll a tiny metal ball toward the nine pins. Sure you won’t get to excercise your swinging arm, but this looks like fun XD It has a mini gutter too~

And either of the two life-size pins you see come in the bundle. The pins are 30cm tall. The whole thing costs US$20, which I guess is fairly reasonable. ^^

You can check it out at the National Console Support online shop~

Hello Kitty Action Retro Love Heart Swinging Clock

Hello Kitty Action Retro Swinging Clock

I know, what a long name haha~ This is one of the sweetest things I’ve seen on the Sanrio shop. It would make an awesome gift, the person doesn’t even have to be a Kitty fan ^^

There’s apparently a whole series of “Action Retro Love” from Eikoh — a company that specializes in amusement games like gashapons, pluch toys, etc.

Umm it isn’t for sale so I’m afraid I can’t give you any purchase details today >_< It’s actually a prize in Japan… for what kind of game I forgot (sorry!) But I promise, next post will be something that can be purchased by international Hello Kitty fans ^^

Well, on a more personal note. I haven’t bought ay presents for Christmas yet! Waaah! I only have two (2) weeks left… What’s wrong with me?! >_< I don’t even know what to get them yet T_T

Hope you guys are doing better in the Christmas shopping area. Christmas rush, here I come~ @_@

It’s currently being held in Juru Auto City, and entrance is at 15MYR (around US$4.5) for adults and 8MYR (around US$2) for kids. It has different themes each year, and the theme this year was…

*drumroll*

Hello Kitty and Friends in Penang Safari! *o*

So as the name suggests, the whole gang was there, and this is just one of the many awesome pictures I found of them on the net:

Squeee! A long time for a lantern festival, and I bet it would’ve been awesome seeing the beautiful lanterns up close~ ^^

Anyway, I’m sure you all want to see the other pictures, so you can check them out through VKeong (Malaysian blog where I found these pics), or by searching “penang international lantern festival 2007″ in Google. ^^

Hello Kitty Cosmetics Gift Set

Monday, December 3rd, 2007
Hello Kitty Lipgloss Keychain

This was submitted by Patty Sedgwick, a Hello Kitty fan who answered the call and shared these Hello Kitty stuff. There are actually a lot of pics she shared, but this one got my attention most.

The strawberry lip gloss is in this plastic container, but I don’t really know how you get the lip gloss out, I hope you don’t have to destroy it! If so, I’d keep the gloss inside :P

It’s part of a Hello Kitty gift set, with a Hello Kitty handbag, sunglasses and a cosmetic set. I like the sunglasses too, I could’ve sworn I saw this on someone else’s blog, but I don’t remember whose :c

Hello Kitty Shades

Cute no? The lenses are actually Hello Kitty shaped. I hope the eyes and nose markings don’t mess with your vision. :P

The gift set comes with fake nails, lip balm and lip compact (pretty thorough on the lip care~ XD) and you can find it on Dillyanddaddy if you’re insterested! It currently goes for $18.99.

Oh and I like the shirt from the picture she sent too. Thanks for these, Patty! ^^

Hello Kitty Message Straps

Saturday, December 1st, 2007
Hello Kitty is not mad…

Super cute! I don’t remember when I last saw this much attitude from a Hello Kitty item~ :P This is part of a series of Hello Kitty items with 4 different emotions and messages. It’s so cute coz you can actually use this one, say for instance you ARE mad, and want to let a certain someone know. Haha~

At the back of these straps, you can find a Japanese message which sorta gives the same effect as the English lines in front. The one behind this black heart reads “怒ってませんよ…” or “Okottemasen yo…”

Check out the other designs (equally adorable) and item info by clicking the link to the rest of the entry. Enjoy~ ^^
