Merry Christmas, Hello Kitty Junkies! =^_^=
Merry Christmas, Hello Kitty Junkies! =^_^=
These cuties were released during the Holiday 2014 season and are super duper kawaii!
As always, the packaging is kawaii and side shows are the fun artwork and all the designs that you can collect in this series of collectible figures.
The figures cost $16/ea.
Do you have a fave? The purple ninja might be my fave… But I do believe the colors and designs of all of them compliment each other very nicely.
Below are different views of each of the figures:
Am I super-late to posting this blog? Yes… Apologies. T___T They are currently unavailable on both tokidoki.it and sanrio.com — but you may get lucky and find them at the tokidoki Melrose store, or at your local Sanrio boutique or any other shops that carry tokidoki.Sanrio products.
Merry Christmas, Junkies! =^_^=
Just wanted to share a picture of my Christmas tree this year (I got a real live one)! I hope everybody had a beautiful Christmas day with their loved ones! =^_^=
It’s that time of year again… 7-Eleven Hong Kong has partnered up with Sanrio for a fun Holiday promotion! Remember last year’s Sanrio x 7-Eleven Hong Kong: Hello Kitty and Friends Sweet Delight?
This time around, the theme looks more like a fancy party! Purrr-fect timing since Hello Kitty will be celebrating her 40th Anniversary in 2014 (which means all the exclusive anniversary items are starting to be introduced right now)!
The first series:
I am so in love with these cuties! ^___^
For the first series, the stamp issuing period is from December 4, 2013 – February 25, 2014. The redemption period is from December 4, 2013 – March 4, 2014 (or most likely while supplies last).
You get your stamp card at 7-Eleven and you receive one stamp upon purchase of HK$20, 2 stamps for HK$30, 3 stamps for HK$40, and so on (with some restrictions like: not including the purchase of cigarettes, services like bill payment, phone card, pre-payment, and some others).
For series one, you must collect 6 stamps plus pay HK$20 in order to redeem one Hello Kitty & Friends Hello Party figurine! As per series two, you must collect 16 stamps to redeem one *FREE* Hello Kitty & Friends Hello Party figurine! These figurines are blind-boxed so you get a surprise each time!
For reference, HK$20 is about $2.58 USD.
Here is the first series!

Hello Kitty & Friends Hello Party complete set is pictured below. Looks like the first series is available starting on December 4, 2013! The second series will be available starting January 15, 2014! And just like last year, there are some special ones to collect in the in-between time!
*Sigh* This collection is too cute! I still wonder if/when the 7-Elevens in the U.S. will run these kind of promotions… Is there a large enough kawaii market for this to be successful in the states? Hmmm… ^___^
Besides a Hello Kitty suitcase/luggage, all my fellow Junkies know that a Hello Kitty luggage is a must-have! As long as your luggage is a carry-on! You know, just in case — don’t want your precious luggage tag to get scuffed up!
tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection offered six different luggage tags. My fave is this adorable mash-up featuring Hello Kitty and Kaiju!
The rubber luggage tags are big! This one measures approximately 6.5in (H) x 5in (W) x 0.5in (D) — without the hanging portion. The hang tag features the mix of both tokidoki and Sanrio characters… And it also doubles as a sticker! ^_^
Back detail has an area for you to put your info.
Here is a side view so you can see the thickness and slot where the info card is inserted.
Kawaii, neh? I am debating using this as a luggage tag… Maybe it can be more like a charm that dangles from a large tote bag?
This luggage tag retails for $15. It is available, along with the rest of the tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection, at:
More pix from this collection coming soon — please stay tuned! =^_^=
Thank kittiness the collection is finally here! =^_^=
My eyes have been glued to these two sites:
Can you blame me? Below are beautiful product images of all the cuteness! (I will update more when Sanrio + tokidoki update their products available for purchase)…
The price range of this collection goes from $6.95 for a Nail Stickers set to $300 for a Rolling Travel Case/Luggage.

Sanrio and tokidoki (my two all-time fave brands in the whole wide world) have teamed up for a brand spankin’ new limited edition collection! It’s more than just a fun design, this collaboration features a mix of both Sanrio and tokidoki characters. The lineup includes a variety of bags, suitcases, an assortment plushes, t-shirts, coin banks and much more!
It is the first collection of such a wide range of products to choose from available in U.S. that shines light not only on Kitty-chan + tokidoki characters (SANDy, Donutella, Dolce, Caramelo, Bambu, Sunny Day), but Kitty-chan’s Sanrio buddies too: Keroppi, Tuxedosam, Badtz Maru, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, Cinnamoroll, Pom Pom Purin, Kuromi… I hope I am not forgetting any cuties… Hangyodon! How dare I forget! o___O
It is true, Simone Legno has worked with other Sanrio Characters — remember Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary? But, this collection introduces way more product assortment…
Anyway, the artwork and design… I have seen the merch in person and it is SO FREAKIN’ KAWAII! It was hard for me to hold my tears in… Yes, *THAT CUTE*! :’) If any of my fellow Junkies know me — they understand how true that statement is! Back to the design… Simone and the Sanrio designers are too good at making things über cute!
The official launch is coming very very VERY SOON! *cross your fingers*
However, if you are a true Junkie, you have already started looking for pictures online since this limited edition collection was first announced on Sanrio.com!
Here are some lovely photos of the products — straight from Simone’s IG…
Another sneak peek from tokidoki’s IG:
And some of my fave kawaii stores already have their stock in-store, like JapanLA:
Don’t forget about Sanrio JVP (my ultimate fave Kitty spot):
Also, Sanrio JVP has an in-store promo going on! Check with your local Sanrio Boutique — they may have a similar in-store promo as well!
The collection has been rolling out in select stores since last week. This adorably kawaii limited edition collection will be available online at Sanrio.com and tokidoki.it so keep checking the sites — you know I will be all over them! @___@
In the meantime, I wonder what my fellow Junkies are in love with… Are there certain products that instantly caught your eye and it’s a done deal — you *MUST HAVE* them in your life!? What are they?
So far, on my wish list… Pretty much everything! But the things I was drooling over last week (yup, I’m still a sucker for sweet and cuddly plushes and collectible vinyl figures):
If you’re on Instagram, don’t forget to check me out @hellokittyjunkie on IG as I promise to post a screenshot as soon as I see the products go live! =^_^=
