As we go through your application videos, we are really entertained by what we see. Some of our aspiring testers have sent in some really complex videos, but we have to give special mention to some videos — some that are simple at first glance, but are really special in how they were made. We have two videos here that make use of very simple scribbles, but we’re sure you’ll enjoy them!

First off we have a video by Ashums, for all of you who love hats and cute bubbly music. Click here to go to the video page.

Next we have a fun video which also uses stick men to get his message across. Yes, you read right, Gz_strawberry is a guy. Without further ado, here’s the video that really amused us! Click here to go to the video page.

We’ll be featuring more interesting videos soon, stay tuned!

Today we have a treat for all of you, as we’ve added a new section to the official game site — a section full of HKO artwork! You can view that by going to the Download Area and clicking the “art work” link.

We’re sharing some original artwork straight from the talented minds and hands of those behind the concept art of Hello Kitty Online. We will be updating this section little by little, so be sure to check back often!

New Hello Kitty Online Artwork

If you haven’t already visited the Download Area on the Hello Kitty Online game site, then you should definitely check it out to see these new artworks and also some game screenshots from the actual game!

Over the weekend alone, there have been so many great applications for Hello Kitty Online closed beta in Dream Studio. The response to our call has been overwhelming, and because of that I’d like to feature some of our very interesting videos.

Here’s one made recently by Spacemancow, and we’re sure you’ll find this very amusing, especially if you’re a Star Wars fan! Click here to view the video page.

And this is proof of just how diverse our applicants are. We have here the seemingly hardcore gamer Clouded, with a similarly amusing application. Some parts of these are not to be taken too seriously, but it deserves special mention and it’s definitely good for laughs! Click here to view the video.

So what do you think about these applications? Stay tuned for more features!

Dear fans, firstly, thank you for the overwhelming response on creating videos on

We got a lot of feedback from our valued subscribers base that the recent email sent to them in effect penalizes people who are long time contributers to our community but do not necessarily have the creative ability to generate eye-catching videos.

In retrospect, we realise that even though our intent was not to exclude anyone from the selection process and not to make the selection process dependent on a single item, the email reads as such and we want to apologize for this oversight.

We’ll also be selecting our beta testers from a pool, and entry into that pool has many criteria, including looking at their usage of SanrioTown products, the ability to engage with other users via blog posts, comments, forum posts as well our subscribers who have taken the effort to create such fascinating videos.

So while we will be making extra room for our loyal SanrioTown users, we assure you that the existing applications and video entries will not be affected.

We appreciate all the feedback from our SanrioTown users and look forward to improving the community experience based on your feedback.
