With the "Sexy Collection" Hello Kitty phone charms, Hello Kitty has grown up into a bonafide Sex Kitten! I don't know about you, but there's something disturbingly SIN-derella-ish about having the classic Hello Kitty head combined with a pair of shapely, sexy legs. The fact that the intended market is female makes me feel a bit better. Except for the word "intended"...
It had to happen, I suppose... cute little girls grow up to become pretty, desirable women. But wait a minute, Hello Kitty isn't a girl, she... IT... is Sanrio's most popular character, the Icon of Cuteness. If the Simpsons can remain ageless, why can't Hello Kitty? Do we look at her sexualization as just one more case of lost innocence?
Not your child's Hello Kitty
Whether or not you like Hello Kitty, the creative folks at Strapya World have tinkered with Sanrio's proven formula for success, retaining the mouthless cat head but adding a pair of shapely and seductive legs wearing sexy pink lace-up high heeled "F-me" shoes. Yikes!! With her big wide head and long slender legs, the "Sexy Collection" Hello Kitty bears a startling resemblance to Betty Boop! Hmm, I wonder if that's not just a coincidence...
Boop boop dee oop!
In any case, I'm assuming - no, hoping desperately - that Strapya 's new "Sexy Collection" of Hello Kitty phone strap and fastener charms appeals ONLY to the legion of female fans who have made Hello Kitty a global phenomenon. As for any guys out there who find the all-growed-up Miss Kitten of more than just passing interest, please... PLEASE drop your joystick, back slowly away from your screen, and hope it's not too late to avoid going straight to Hello Kitty Hell!
