Keeping Time Can Be Kittilicious

Did you know that keeping time could be so kittilicious? With the tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Square Wristwatch — being on time has never been cuter!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Square Wristwatch Pink

As many Junkies already know, this adorably kawaii wristwatch is part of the tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection and features the sweet artwork from the Sanrio family of characters and Simone Legno’s cutie pies!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Square Wristwatch Pink

The watch measures 9.5in (H) x 1.5in (W) x 0.5in (D), there are nine holes for a lot of adjustability and the band is made from some kind of bendable plastic. The time piece slides off — look at all the cuteness! @____@ Do you see Hello Kitty wearing a pink and white polka dotted Cactus suit? And she is riding Stellina! I love how Donutino and Tuxedosam are hanging out in the heart!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Square Wristwatch Pink

Here are the two main components… The band is to-die-for-cute! I really love the pink girlie girl design (some people think it is very “young” and/or “baby”)… But I cannot help it! I love the colors used on this design — soft and almost pastel-like — which it totally different from the darker design from this Holiday release (like the Prism iPhone 5 case).

I also really love the artwork because it feels like a true collaboration — the Sanrio and tokidoki characters balance each other out pretty evenly. Some collaborations seem to be skewed more toward one brand but this one is an excellent mix of kawaii elements throughout the product.

The back of the wristwatch is plain.

*Sigh* I keep falling in love with this collection… The more and more I look at the products and break down the details… Seriously, *IN-LOVE*! =^_^=

This lovely wrsitwatch retails for $30.

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)!

7-Eleven Hong Kong Sanrio Holiday 2013 Promotion Hello Party

*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… ^___^

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters: Latch Wallet

Are you still deciding what to get from the tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Holiday 2013 Collection? If you are looking for a bag/wallet featuring the adorable pattern that mixes both the tokidoki and Sanrio worlds of cuteness together, then I would highly recommend the tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet!

Let me start by stating that, you cannot really go wrong with any of the other bags in this collection: overnight bag, tote, backpack, crossbody, handbag, wristlet, pouch or suitcase. The reason you cannot go wrong is because the artwork is so gorgeous! The allover pattern is signature Simone Legno — bright and colorful and filled with an overdose of kawaii!

If you happen to be a fan of both Sanrio and tokidoki — this is such a treat because this is the very first time that multiple Sanrio characters have interacted with the tokidoki world in such a wide assortment of products! In previous years (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), it has always been tokidoki x Hello Kitty, which is not a complaint — just want to point out the significance of this design.

As fans, we might expect the cuteness of Hello Kitty dressed up as Donutella riding Dolce (one of the sweetest Unicornos)… But this collection introduces Keroppi riding Bambu, Pom Pom Purin dressed up as a Cactus Pup, Hangyodon dressed up as Donutella, etc. all co-existing in the same kawaii environment… Simply, AMAZING!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

This beautifully stylish wallet is made out of quilted faux leather on the outside and has sleek metal hardware for the closure. It measures 5″H x 7.5″W x 1.5″D. The hangtag is supercute — featuring some of the cuties of this release — and guess what? It also doubles as a sticker! Isn’t that a cute surprise!?

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

Here is the back view — the pattern is upside down because the quilted pattern is one piece (better flow), as opposed to cutting and sewing two different pieces to make the pattern be right-side up.

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

Here is the side view — 1.5″ depth is pretty roomy for all the necessities.

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

The inside is lined with tokidoki x Sanrio Characters pink polyester and faux leather lining. There are 12 card pockets (six on top and six on bottom), two clear ID windows, one zipper pocket and four bill compartments.

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

There is also an embroidered tokidoki x Sanrio Characters woven label on the inside.

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

When I stated that this is pretty roomy — I meant I could fit my iPhone in there! I’ve noticed that having a wallet/clutch/wristlet that you can also hold your mobile phone inside is very trendy. My sister *Banana* was showing me the MICHAEL Michael Kors Essential Zip Wallet for iPhone 5 for $89.95. As a Junkie, it is quite obvious that I must find something Hello Kitty to store my phone in. =^_^=

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

It closes completely with my tokidoki Frenzies and Hello Kitty charm hanging from my iPhone too!

tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet

The tokidoki x Sanrio Characters Latch Wallet is available for $48 — shop in-store at tokidoki Melrose Store, your local Sanrio Boutique/authorized seller or you can grab one of these beauties online at Sanrio.com!

The Most Kawaii Glasses Cases Are Made By Sanrio!

I am always browsing the products on Sanrio Japan and it is hard not to fall in love with the kawaii goodies that come out every month! Most recently, I fell in love with the most kawaii glasses cases featuring Kitty-chan, My Melody and Pom Pom Purin!

These glasses cases also double as stands. ^___^ I like how they are made of plush material and act as a mini couch for your glasses to be displayed! Gaaaw!!! SO cute! I can hardly stand it! @____@

The Cutest Office in The Whole Entire Universe!

A.k.a. The Happiest Office on the Planet! Hello Kitty and Friends Hanging-Out in Sanrio’s SVP of Brand Management and Marketing’s Office… If I worked in this office, I don’t know if I could focus on work. I would probably end up playing with everything around me… Or maaay-be all the Sanrio cuties will be my inspiration and I will get extra work done!?

This truly is the cutest organized office space ever! Thank you Christian Lau for the beautiful photographs and thank you Super Jill for sharing your amazing space!!

Sanrio x 7-Eleven Hong Kong: Hello Kitty and Friends Sweet Delight

Oh! What I would give to live close enough to Hong Kong that the flight would be only a couple hours long, inexpensive roundtrip tickets too, and I had friends who lived there that I could stay with for the weekend! Why am I wishing that Hong Kong was so close and accessible?

Well, have you seen the latest promotion that 7-Eleven is doing? 7-Eleven Hong Kong has teamed up with Sanrio this winter season to bring fans Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight! Marketing-wise, I believe 7-Eleven in Asia and Sanrio always do a kittitastic job! It always makes me wish that there was a “kawaii” market in the United States for our local 7-Eleven convenience stores to run promotions similar to ones in Hong Kong!

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_01

There is a kawaii limited edition 12 in plush of Kitty-chan holding a strawberry dessert… Super kittilicious! ^__^

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_02

How cute are all of the products!? Each of the collectibles features a Sanrio cutie: Hello Kitty, My Melody, Keroppi, Monkichi, Tabo, Pochacco, Badtz Maru, Kuromi… And each one is paired up with a sweet and delightful yummy treat! ^___^

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_03

Cinnamoroll, Little Twin Stars, Pom Pom Purin and Pekkle are collectibles too!

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_04

Tabo and Hello Kitty on the top right area seem to be colored differently — they must be extra special to collect!

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_05

Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight macaroons are also available too… They sure are cute (as in too cute to actually eat them).

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_06

Beginning on December 5, fans can collect 6 stamps plus spend HK$20 to redeem one Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight Figurine. You receive one stamp upon purchase of HK$20, 2 stamps for HK$30, 3 stamps for HK$40 and so on. Of course, there are some restrictions like purchase of cigarettes, bill payment, donation, phone card, and some other purchases do not count towards the stamp. Btw, HK$20 = $2.58 USD

The first set available to collect are pictured below… Each and every one of them are super kawaii! And they are cute cases too — maybe large enough to store a small pair of earrings?

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_10

And in the New Year — beginning January 16, 2013 — fans will be able to start collecting a second series of Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight Figurines! Kawaii, neh!? ^___^

But that’s not all! Beginning at 8am on December 21 (uh-oh! I hope it is not the end of the world!), fans have another opportunity to collect some sweet delights! These look like they attach to each other — like a train. There are six different collectibles in this special set. First releases are: My Melody and Keroppi in cute Christmas theme… And from the comments I saw on Facebook, they are pretty limited!

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_11

Tabo and Pom Pom Purin in Chinese New Year theme — these will probably be released closer to Chinese New Year 2013.

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_12

Dear Daniel and Hello Kitty in Valentine’s Day theme <3 <3 — which will probably be released closer to Valentine’s Day 2013.

How cute are the Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight campaign decals on the window!? Seriously, every thing about this campaign makes me smile because every little detail is so adorable! I know for a fact that if I was in Hong Kong right now, I’d be shopping strictly at 7-Elevens to get my stamps and befriending the employees to make sure they “take care of me,” if you know what I mean! n_~

Here are some items that are for sale at 7-Eleven that will count towards the stamps promotion!

915_sanrio_hello_kitty_friends_7-eleven_hong_long_sweet_delight_promotion_36

The best way to stay updated about this campaign is to like 7-Eleven Hong Kong on FB and check out the posts regularly… I do not understand Chinese AT ALL! o___O So I use Google Translate to get an idea of what is being said… If I am really confused, I will resort to bugging *Amandabot* (non-Hello Kitty friend) to translate! After all, that is what friends are for! =^_^=

Images via 7-Eleven Hong Kong on FB and 7-Eleven 心愛‧加甜 (special Hello Kitty & Friends Sweet Delight page).

I am truly in love with these beauties… The more I find out about them, the more I want them in my own personal kittilicious collection… I suppose there is always eBay… I already found My Melody and Keroppi

Again, what I would give to be closer to Hong Kong so I can collect these goodies! n__n

Hello Kitty World!

While playing Hello Kitty Kawaii Town, I was introduced to Hello Kitty World… And thanks to fellow Junkie Evelyn — I am hooked! @___@

At first, this game was a little intimidating — mostly because there are a lot more things to build and buy than Hello Kitty Kawaii Town. Hello Kitty World also reminds me of HKO — no gardening here, instead, building attractions and shops and collecting hearts and money to keep the amusement park going!

This game is super creative and fun! It features many of the Sanrio cuties and there are kawaii rides/games/shops that are personalized to many of the popular characters! The game is rated 4+ but I believe Hello Kitty World is a bit more complicated than Hello Kitty Kawaii Town. And it is free — so go ahead and download it! n__~

Here are screenshots from the game:

913_sanrio_hello_kitty_world_smart_phone_game_nifty_04

913_sanrio_hello_kitty_world_smart_phone_game_nifty_05

Here are some of the tasks you are required to do — when you complete them you receive coins or hearts! Some of the tasks are on-going — for example, if you tap Hello Kitty to get coins 25 times, after you complete the task, you receive a prize of coins and you are able to tap her another 25 times to get more coins!

913_sanrio_hello_kitty_world_smart_phone_game_nifty_07

The animation in this game is very kawaii! I think it is so cute how the amusement park goers like to crowd around Kitty-chan! Sometimes, they even follow her in a line! n__n It’s also cool that they have the stuff that is being sold in the shops — like Kitty’s bow, Chococat’s headband, Cinnamoroll balloon, etc… These items that are sold in the shops can also be found on the ground sometimes. If you pick it up, you get some coins or hearts — both in your amusement park and when you visit a friends!

913_sanrio_hello_kitty_world_smart_phone_game_nifty_09

Below is a screenshot of one of my IG friend HK Dexter’s amusement park! Look at how full her park is! @___@ It’s fun to visit friends’ parks to see what they are doing and you can also leave gifts for them… And it’s a great surprise when you receive a gift from your friends! n___n

Ahhh! Goropikadon hats stand and Goropikadon trampoline! I was excited to place these in my park!! And check out the girl who is wearing a Goropikadon hat! Kawaii, neh? n_~ (click image for larger size).

Chococat is a hit at my park too… Here is a crowd that was following him near Ahiru No Pekkle’s giant boat! (click image for larger size).

I still have a very long ways to go… I am considering spending actual money to play this game. The Magic Apples are a little hard to come by and certain attractions require many Magic Apples. You can purchase: 50 Magic Apples for $4.99; 130 Magic Apples for $9.99; 380 Magic Apples for $24.99; 900 Magic Apples for $49.99; and 2,300 Magic Apples for $99.99. I went through the Hello Kitty House on the bottom right corner (store) to see how many Magic Apples I may need to buy everything I wanted… About 2,000! $___$

I will probably purchase 50 Magic Apples and see how that goes. Remember, you do not need to purchase anything to play Hello Kitty World! You just have to go without having some super cute items in your theme park.

Here is how my park is looking so far (click image for larger size):

Hello Kitty Kawaii Town

Thanks to my FB friend Jennifer, I was introduced to Hello Kitty Kawaii Town about two weeks ago… I’ve been kinda hooked ever since!

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_01

This game reminds me of HKO but on a smaller scale. The goal is to create a town with Hello Kitty — make it super cute with special items from the store. Build shops, collect money, fill your garden with lovely flowers, and produce your own Kawaii Town. ^___^

The prettier the town becomes, the more Sanrio characters will come out and play — like Keroppi, Badtz Maru, Monkichi, Cinnamoroll, Tuxedosam, etc. This game is rated 4+ but I am actually really enjoying it! n___n Here are some screenshots from the iPhone/iPad app:

I named my Kawaii Town “Kittyville.” When I first started playing, I was not quite sure what I was doing. Here is how Kittyville was looking like about two weeks ago…

Since I connected this game with my FB account, I was able to see my FB friends who are also playing Hello Kitty Kawaii Town. I have several friends who are playing — and they were all advanced on levels so I got to see how they built their Kawaii Town and I was inspired to re-design and make it the most cutest town I could!

The Kawaii Town of Matcha belongs to fellow Junkie and kittilicious friend *Jaime* — Look how cute her town is! @___@ She has higher levels of the toy shop, cake shop, Purin pudding shop… And she even has the post office (it costs 15 kawaii tickets)!

Here is the progress of my Kittyville after studying Jaime’s Matcha… I tried to level up certain buildings that I could.

During game play, the characters walk around and go to different shops. If you see a speech bubble with a question mark in it, you can touch it to see what they say. The characters have different sayings (although Kiki and LaLa of the Little Twin Stars may say the same thing… Something about them being happy they were born on the day that everybody else is happy *Christmas Eve*)

I really want to level up on my toy shop — but I am saving my kawaii tickets for a post office!

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_12

During game play, you can also tap on each character — and each one has an animation that is personalized! My fave animation is Badtz Maru’s! He is so silly — lol n___n

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_13

Awww… As you can see, I currently have 12 kawaii tickets — 3 more to go!

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_14

I am also looking forward to reaching level 15 so I can build a darts cafe in my Kittyville.

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_15

I am still checking in every few hours to tend to my crops and collect money from the shops…

912_sanrio_hello_kitty_kawaii_town_app_game_16

There is an easier way to get kawaii tickets — you can actually purchase with actual money! 8 Kawaii Tickets will cost you $0.99; 25 Kawaii Tickets for $2.99; 50 Kawaii Tickets for $4.99… All the way up to 2,000 Kawaii Tickets for $99.99! But you do not need to purchase in order to play!

Hello Kitty Kawaii Town is a very cute + fun game made by Kansai Telecasting Corporation and you can download it here. I highly recommend to the Junkies who have an iPhone/iPad — easy to play and definitely fun to build a cute town. And this game is also a nice intro to Hello Kitty World, which is another iPhone game that I am currently obsessed over! *___*
