Sanrio Hello Kitty Monster Collection Introduces 5 Cute Scaredy Cats
You and your kids just love getting dressed up for Halloween, amiright? Well so does Hello Kitty, and the officially licensed Sanrio Hello Kitty Monster Collection allows Japan's (and let's face it, the world's) most fave feline to strut her stuff 'til you're scared enuff!
Sanrio, Hello Kitty's license-holder, brings you a uniquely gothic group of 5 plush miniature scaredy cats. Measuring roughly 9.5 x 7 x 5 cm (3.8” tall by 2.8” wide by 2” thick), these cuddly plush figurines are designed to evoke both classic horror filmdom's greatest stars and more general fright themes.
Starting with the former, we have Frankenstein (more accurately, Frankenstein's Monster), The Mummy, a Skeleton (love that skull on her hairbow!), a white hairbowed Ghost, and a Mini-Ghost sporting a red hairbow.
The Ghost resembles the outfits worn by the Peanuts Gang in the 1966 “It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” TV special as the design shows Hello Kitty wearing a trimmed bedsheet with cutouts for her eyes and nose. Did she get a rock?
Each of the 5 plush Hello Kitty figurines in the Sanrio Hello Kitty Monster Collection includes an integral polished metal ball chain, allowing you to attach your fave fright figure from a zipper pull, a mobile phone (if it has a grommet or an adhesive button), a pumpkin stem... heck, just about anything. It's all good, or as Charlie Brown would say, “Good grief!”
You can order one or more members of the Sanrio Hello Kitty Monster Collection online. They're priced at 950 yen (about $12.50) each and orders are shipped within one week. How boo-tiful indeed!
Update: You can now get the whole Sanrio Hello Kitty Monster Collection here in the U.S.!
