Hello Kitty x Playboy Collaboration at Colette

Hello Kitty x Playboy Collaboration at Colette France

Ooooh-la-la! Kitty-chan is sexy in this collaboration with Playboy! Who would have imagined these two companies working together?

One has been around 40 years, the other for 60 years, but they had never met until now.

This just happened now thanks to colette‘s idea of gathering the two most iconic characters of the world: Hello Kitty, who was born in England on November 1st 1974, and the American Playboy bunny, which was imagined by art director Art Paul for the January 1954 issue of the magazine founded by Hugh Hefner. They got married for the span of one evening and a series of collector items made for colette: Charvet embroidered bow tie, Caron‘s cygnet down powder puff, Sleepy Jones t-shirt and boxer shorts, a pair of Happy SocksYazbukey mirror, Leica C digital camera, X-Mini portable speakers, Beam 2C Xoopar smartphone back-up battery, Case Scenario iPhone 5/5s case, Papelaria paper cupcake and many goodies: Bernard Forever fake tattoos, Haribo mouse marshmallow, Bic lighter and 4-colour pen, Farkel dice set, mug… with custom shopping bags especially for the event!

Kinda cool, right? Check out the beautiful product photos below… The prices in this collaboration ranges from $1.38 USD – $1,269.88 USD. They are available exclusively at Colette. My fave pieces are the mug, mirror and iPhone 5/5S case. =^_^=

Hello Kitty Dollar Bin Sighting at Target!

I made a Target run today. Since I was not in any kind of a rush, I browsed the dollar bin aisle and what did my eyes spy!? @____@ I am always happy when I find cute Hello Kitty things in the dollar bin and I am happy to share with my fellow Junkies what was available at my local Target!

Since the Hello Kitty things in the dollar bin were very pastel colored… And Easter is coming up, I made my way over to the Easter section and was very happy to find some more kittilicious things! These items were more than one dollar tho…

So guess what I couldn’t leave Target without?

The eggs were too cute not to take home with me! And the tin buckets… One dollar each… That is understandable, right? After all, I am a Hello Kitty Junkie (I cannot resist)!

Awww… Poor Pink Hello Kitty Bunny Bobblehead

I got a bit of sad news… One of my Hello Kitty bobbleheads got into a little accident and her ear became unattached. x___X So sad because she is part of my Hello Kitty Bobble Crew (not to mention one of my faves from the bunch).

I suppose she got lucky since the ear was broken into just one main piece so hopefully this situation is fixable!

I took a trip down to my local Orchard Supply Hardware and found the Gorilla Glue. It is a tough super glue so we will see…

I am hoping she can be restored to full health — with both ears attached like below!

Please send your positive Hello Kitty vibes this way! n__n

Hello Kitty x Colorful Bunny Phone Screen Cleaner

The only way a true Hello Kitty Junkie can clean her iPhone screen is with any of the kawaii Hello Kitty screen cleaners available on Strapya-World. I chose this Hello Kitty x Colorful Bunny slipper puppet cell phone charm in Vivid Pink!

Kawaii, neh!? n_~

Super Soft Hello Kitty Bunnies from Sanrio

Just want to share a quick story with some of my Hello Kitty Junkies — just because I want to know if this has ever happened to any of you… Have you ever been anticipating a new product from Sanrio? Duh, I am sure the answer is yes! o_O And then gone inside the store telling yourself you will only leave the store with 3 of the kawaii plushies *Hello Kitty bunnies in my particular situation* and then end up leaving the store with almost one of each bunny plushie that was available!?!?!?! @____@

Why, oh why are these Hello Kitty plushies so addicting!??? *Silly of me to type that out since I already know the obvious reasons*!!! EVERYBODY KNOWS that these are…

  1. Kawaii
  2. Colorful
  3. Soft and cuddly
  4. Hearts
  5. Kitty as bunny
  6. I could go on… But if you’re reading this, you already know…

Seriously, I walked into Sanrio telling myself I can only have one of each color…

But then I could not decide on the sizes I wanted… Which meant I *NEEDED* all of them! I felt a little greedy afterward so I gave one pink bunny plushie to my Mom and a blue plushie to beautiful baby Zöe!

Really… How would you choose which size to get for your collection!?

So… Yeah… Has that scenario ever happened to you? And please tell me you do the same exact thing!?

Btw, I actually still have a few plushies on hold for me at another Sanrio shop… Ahhh!!! Why must I be such a Junkie!? @____@

Hello Kitty Loves Cherry Blossoms

I had an extra *lovely* weekend… Filled with nice Cali sunshine, old friends, new friends, happiness, cherry blossoms, delicious brunch, hike in the hills… And most importantly, Hello Kitty! n_~

On Saturday, I went to Lake Balboa with some friends to view the cherry blossoms. So beautiful! If you live in the valley area, it is worth checking out. Have a little picnic with loved ones and enjoy the beginning of Spring! I also visited Target when I was informed that new plushies were available — and you know I just HAD TO bring them along! n_n

Egg Kitty and Bunny Kitty love the pink cherry blossoms!

So does pink bunny Kitty!

How did you Junkies spend the beginning of Spring?

Asparagus… Peach… Froggy… Bunny… Kawaii Gotochi Kitties

I ordered four Gotochi Kitty charms online last month… Yup! Only four, if you can believe it! o_O Just in case you don’t know, I have a slight obsession with the Gotochi Kitties:  Gotochi Hello Kitty Part 1, Gotochi Hello Kitty Part 2 and Gotochi Hello Kitty Part 3… I am not sure why, but I like to pick out my absolute favorite, then my next favorite, and so on… Anybody else do this with your Hello Kitty belongings?

Sometimes, I drive myself crazy thinking about which Kitty is the cutest… I know Peach Kitty is kawaii because Hello Kitty x food = always a winner! But on top of that, she is blushing! *_*

Gotochi Hello Kitty Charms

But I cannot claim her as my absolute fave because look at her pals…

Hello Kitty at Toys R Us…

I have been finding a lot of Hello Kitty items for my collection at Toys R Us lately. Target is usually the convenient go-to spot… But I want to remind my Hello Kitty Junkies that Toys R Us can be just as awesome! No, they do not have a one dollar bin filled with Hello Kitty stationery and socks and totes… But you know how Target sometimes runs out of the regular priced Hello Kitty things? A lot of the same products are carried at both stores! Lucky for us, huh!? n_~

Last month when word spread that the 35th Anniversary Hello Kitty plush set was available, I drove to two separate Target locations before checking the local Toys R Us. Both Targets did not have any on display, which was a big bummer for me… Good thing I happened to check out Toys R Us!

And is this not the cutest tag ever!? n_n

I couldn’t resist the Hello Kitty and Mimmy Urban Vinyl Figures either… Especially because the figures are both Kitty and Mimmy! n_n Actually, I could resist, but I have very little self control… Mostly when I am out by myself without non-Hello Kitty collecting friends to supervise my craziness! o_O

And one final note! If you are up to date on the members’ blogs and photos on Hello Kitty Junkies (or converse on twitter or are active on Flickr), you probably already noticed that Target has NEW Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary stationery stuff! I received my package from Belle today! I will be sure to take more photos with my digicam! I was trying to stay out of Target because there are different colors of each item (sticker tin, pouch, journal, address book, etc.)… We will see how long that lasts…

Just a quick question — which is your favorite color from the 35th Anniversary Colors collection? Let’s say you could only collect things from one color!? Which would you choose?

Krissy’s Kawaii Kitty Gifts

Another treat showed up at my house a couple of days ago! In an official Sanrio box!!! Which was strange because I do not usually order online… Did I accidentally order things on my wish list and not know it!? o_O Suspicion arose… To my surprise, Krissy had sent me a kittilicious package! I was seriously in AWE!

awww

She has a very massive kawaii Kitty collection and by looking through her photos, it’s obvious that our kawaii compatibility is VERY HIGH – SUPER! (like 80-95% if I had to guess)… Which makes me wonder, wouldn’t it be cool to chart me and Krissy‘s compatibility based on photos we upload, purchases we make online, things we place into wish lists, etc.? It would be like scrobbling our kittilicious tastes! Anyway, check out my goodies…

I am excited to dress-up Kitty-chan with this card set!

Hello Kitty mascot plush in a bunny suit! This is the exact one I wanted too! You know when a crazy little girl gets that ONE THING she wants for her Birthday? And once she gets it, she must show it to EVERYBODY? That is totally me with this plushie, lol!

Love the embroidery detail on the back of the head!

I do not usually name all of my Hello Kitty plushies — only a few! But I named her Krissy, hehe… And if Krissy gets mad/offended I will change her name…
