Sanrio x Re-ment Hello Kitty Candy Mascots

Gaaa!!! Re-ment and Sanrio really need to stop producing so much cuteness! I am running out of room to display these sets! The latest collection updated on Re-ment‘s site is a totally kawaii set of Hello Kitty candy mascots!! I am most definitely in *love* and yup, I already started *watching* for these on eBay…

The official release date is March 12, 2012 in Japan and the retail price will be ¥280 JPY (= $3.45 USD) each.

The bottle opener kills me with cuteness!

Awww… The packaging is SO cute for this set of pudding! n___n

Hello Kitty caramels? These need to be made for real!

I think these are dried squid?

Ice cream! Kittilicious!

I feel like going to Mitsuwa, Marukai or Nijiya now just to pick up some Japanese sweets! Those are the local Japanese markets near my place… And looking at these re-ments are making me crave some sweets… n_~

Momiji x Hello Kitty Collectible Dolls

Most of the Junkies know about the Momiji x Hello Kitty collabo that came out last year… I gifted these to myself for Christmas last year… And have finally photographed them!

In my collection are Astrid + Gigi + Aya = my three faves of the bunch!

“Momiji are message dolls. Inside each one there’s a teeny folded card for your own secret message, dream or wish. Spread the love.” Isn’t that such a kittitastic idea? And it goes so well with Sanrio’s “social communication” business. =n_n=

I love Astrid’s Hello Kitty shaped guitar!

I

Underneath is where you can write cute massages/wishes… Makes me want to give one of these to a friend! n___n

Here is my trio…

Astrid + Gigi rockin’ out!

Look at Gigi’s headphones! I totally wish I had a pair!!

Aya carries a Hello Kitty — so sweet! n_~

Check out the media release for Momiji x Hello Kitty for more info:

The culmination of countless top secret design meetings is about to be revealed by the design crew at Momiji HQ and the iconic Hello Kitty.

July 2011 brings with it a happy collision of cute, as Hello Kitty and Momiji combine their unique styles to create a collection of six Momiji dolls and an array of everyday essential accessories or ‘zakka’ (A Japanese word meaning ‘bits & pieces’)

Momiji are message dolls, inside each one there’s a secret folded card for your own secret message, dream or wish. Sprinkled with an abundance of Sanrio chic, each of these new dolls has accessorised her outfit with Hello Kitty; from Gigi’s huge headphones to Astrid’s electric guitar.

Momiji’s Creative Director, Claire Rowlands said “This collaboration is sure to bring fashion-flutters to the hearts of Momiji and Sanrio collectors around the world.”

The zakka collection includes everyday essentials; from mugs to key chains and tiny enamel pins which mean that you can carry your favourite Momiij character with you.

Dolls will be available from July 2011 and zakka from August 2011 throughout the USA.

Hello Kitty Fun Pattern Collection

Saw this new collection on Nakajima USA… And oh boy! Do I likey! n___n

Strictly going off of the product images, I adore: backpack, coin banks and iPhone 4 case. I hope I can get to Sanrio JVP soon to check out this collection! @____@ The pattern is very fun and super cheerful with all these colors!

Here is the Hello Kitty Fun Pattern lineup…

Waaaaa, kawaii, neh!? @__@ *SO* freakin adorable!! n___n

Pom Pom Purin Is So Yummy!

I have a *HUGE* crush on one of Hello Kitty’s friends — I hope she does not get *jelly* n_~

Purin lives in a special ‘Purin-size’ basket near the front door of a girl’s house. He’s never without his brown beret. He enjoys collecting shoes (like Papa’s leather shoes and Mama’s sandals, which he hides one-by-one). He enjoys napping, Purin aerobics, and becoming friends with everyone.

His favorite foods include milk, soft foods, and Mama’s homemade pudding.

I was gonna keep my love for Purin on the light side – maybe collect a couple of sticker sheets… But then I saw the *Room* collection and felt like I needed more than a sticker sheet or two… And the rest is history. n_~

I adore this cute little plushie couch — wish it came in real life size! It would look so cute in my living room! @___@ I don’t have anything in it yet… But I am thinking of putting some jewelry or maybe a mini Kitty plushie! n_~

I really adore the whole *Room* concept… Actually, I love the illustrations a lot! That is the thing that made me want the Purin products even more! I also feel that Purin is so simple and cute (which is very difficult to do) and he adapts very well to most products (like a mug or eye glass case for example).

Here is the inside of the hang tag:

Back view of Purin couch plush jewelry holder…

Purin paper clips… Very doubtful that these will be used — I mostly got it because I love the packaging!

Sanrio makes *everything* look super adorable!

Purin shaped paper clips… *Adorbs*

I like collecting stationery because it is usually one of the more affordable things at Sanrio. I picked up the Purin memo pad and the designs on the sheets are super kawaii! n___n

I like that there are ten different designs!

Here are some of the designs…

I also love the packaging for the Purin letter set! The letter set comes in a small plastic clear file/folder… Again, the cute illustrations appear everywhere! And the colorway is very cute — pudding yellow with chocolate — yummy! n___n

Portrait letter sheets + envelopes + die cut letter sheets in the shape of Purin are included…

Back detail of file/folder…

And it came with some stickers too!

Die cut sheets — SO cute!

Hmmm… Maybe I should have purchased doubles — one to use and one to keep in pristine condition!

Hello Kitty Loves Animals BLOTz Blind Box MIMOBOT

I took my chance with Hello Kitty Loves Animals BLOTz Blind Box MIMOBOT… I have a few Mimobots already, but these Hello Kitty animals are too cute to resist! And you know, you can always have a spare flash drive just in case! n_~

The packaging is so darling! It’s a lot of the same artwork as the Hello Kitty animal plushies that were sold in Urban Outfitters a while ago. n___n

I chose one blind box. Each USB drive holds 2GB and comes with kawaii wallpapers + icons for your computer! The side of the packaging shows the different types of Kitty drives and their rarity.

I love Kitty-chan in a panda outfit so I was *crossing my fingers* for the cute panda! Hmmm… I am curious about what the *surprise* Kitty looks like tho…

And guess what I opened!? o____O

Yayayayaayayay! Hello Panda!

Panda Hello Kitty USB flash drive!! The exact one I was hoping for! What cute luck! *___*

Back detail…

*Sigh*

So far, she is my *fave* Mimobot ever (I have a couple of Hello Kitties, Gloomy Bear, and tokidoki’s Sabochan). They are all cute and I definitely adore them — but seriously… How can this Panda Kitty NOT be my *fave*!? n_~

Hello Kitty Collectible Figures From Sanrio JVP

Last year, around the time of Hello Kitty’s Birthday, I fell in love with these collectible figures at Sanrio JVP (my *fave* Sanrio Boutique just in case you did not know)!

Well, I am happy to report that I have collected a happy group of figures… Still missing a few but excited about the ones I do have! n___n

There are ten collectibles in all: Hello Kitty, Keroppi, My Meloday, Tuxedo Sam, Kuromi, Zashikibuta, Pekkle, Hangyodon, Chococat and Badtz-Maru. All of the characters are painted onto Hello Kitty’s molded figure.

Here is my group of cuties <3 <3

Gotta love Hello KItty!

Is it funny how similar My Melody and Hello Kitty are?

I love these three! Tuxedo Sam is cute… Kerroppi looks so silly — the big eyes! @___@ And Badtz-Maru might possibly be my fave of the bunch!

I think Pekkle in the Kitty form looks so strange… But since I adore Pekkle, I had to add this to my collection!

They look too cute together… *sigh*

I really like these collectibles… I wonder what Sanrio will release next… Since Sanrio does have a plethora of kawaii characters, it might be nice to see a second series of this set — Pom Pom Purin painted on the Kitty molded figure would be a cute one, for example… n___n

Hello Kitty Love From Joyce

I love meeting new Hello Kitty friends from all over the world! Very recently, I met *Joyce* (from Malaysia) via e-mail. *Joyce*, like many Junkies, LOVES Hello Kitty! And like SO many kindhearted Kitty collectors I meet online — is super duper sweet!

*Joyce* even sent me this kittitastic care package from overseas! @___@

Let me share:

Cute shower gel with tiny Hello Kitty charm…

Hello Kitty x Jelly Belly charm = *adorbs*

Red Kitty ID holder? wallet?

Awww… Hello Kitty hugging her bear! Such a cute die-cut notepad!

And look — she got it at Parkson (super popular department store in Malaysia)!

Inside is kawaii, neh?

My *fave* thing in *Joyce*‘s package = her handwritten letter. She wrote me three pages on kawaii stationery!

Yes! *Joyce* has beautiful handwriting! It is pretty close to purrr-fect, right?

The crazy thing is: when I was reading her letter, I felt like we had been friends for years! And I love the fact that she shared her kawaii stationery with me! Makes reading letters THAT much more enjoyable! n___n

She also sent me a red hand mirror… I love Kitty-chan’s pose here! Actually, one of my fave poses since it is very iconic! n_~

Some very *special* kittified labels for me!

I adore how she shares her stickers with me!! And these are items that she likes too!!

Hello Kitty x Sesame Street stickers… The baby-like Elmo, Cookie Monster + Big Bird are SO cute!

More cuteness…

And the best for last? Puffy Hello Kitty stickers! =^_^=

Here is a close-up…

*Joyce* totally spoiled me, huh? Thank you for the love — all the way from Malaysia!! <3
