Hello Kitty in the Beijing Olympics

Hello Kitty is getting a running start ahead of the Beijing Olympics, expanding her kingdom of cute with a new panda costume.

Ahead of next year’s Summer Games, Japan’s iconic cat will merge with China’s most popular animal in a new design depicting Hello Kitty in a panda-like black and white outfit.

“The Olympics are coming up. That is what we have in mind,” said Kazuo Tomatsu, a spokesman for Hello Kitty maker Sanrio Co.

The company has yet to unveil the exact products for the Olympic tie-in.

Hello Kitty, which is popular among girls and adult women alike, is also adding a new product line showing different sides of the cat — as a little devil and an angel.

The black devil character features Hello Kitty with tiny horns and a tail, while the white angel sports a pair of wings.

Along with stuffed figures, the devil and angel characters will be used for perfumes, lingerie and accessories, among other products.
