tokidoki x Hello Kitty x Ju-Ju-Be Collabo!

TOP-SECRET_02

I am super excited to announce that Sanrio, tokidoki and Ju-Ju-Be are collaborating together on a new collection!!! The custom pattern will feature Hello Kitty, an all-star cast from tokidoki’s universe and elements from Ju-Ju-Be’s design arsenal. This supercute collection will be available later this year!

Who do you want featured on this design!?

Official press release below:

COSTA MESA, Calif.—Diaper bag manufacturer Ju-Ju-Be announced a new collaboration print from Sanrio and Tokidoki. The custom pattern will feature Hello Kitty along with Tokidoki characters. The collection will be available to consumers later this year.

In 2012, Ju-Ju-Be launched its first collaboration with Tokidoki, and the two companies have since released a number of collections together. Nearly a year ago, Ju-Ju-Be and Sanrio introduced their very first collaboration–a line of Hello Kitty diaper bags, backpacks, and other accessories. The new, exclusive collection announced today is the first time all three companies have worked together to create a single print.

“At Ju-Ju-Be, we’ve witnessed firsthand that Hello Kitty and Tokidoki have passionate fan bases and collaborating with both of them to create one print for an entire collection has been very exciting. We look forward to offering an amazing line of bags and accessories to both their fans and ours. Fans are sure to find all of their favorite characters as well as a few new surprises,” said Kristin Hunziker, Ju-Ju-Be’s co-founder.

tokidoki x Hello Kitty Frenzies!

I am so in love whenever there is a tokidoki x Hello Kitty collaboration product that comes out — I always know it’s going to be supercute! This month, the tokidoki x Hello Kitty Frenzies have arrived and they are pretty freakin’ adorable! These cuties are blind boxed so each one you collect is a surprise. The nice part about blind boxed items are that if you get doubles, you can either keep the twins together, share one with a friend, or hold on to it until you find someone who can trade. =^_^=

Each character comes with a small lobster clasp, 6 cm strap and a Phonezie attachment. The way I use these are for display or hang them from my bag (unless I’m at a convention — I will add a couple on my lanyard). There are 20 charming characters in all! Chasers are the following: Diamond (1 in 150), Robot (1 in 75), and Clouds (1 in 75).

Enough writing… Check out images of the beautiful packaging + über adorable Frenzies! Let me know which ones are your faves!
