Have Money to Burn? Pay $163,000 for Hello Kitty
Who doesn't love Hello Kitty? I loved her as a child and still stop to look at her stuff.
Well, I guess its a question of how much you love Hello Kitty. I don't love her $163,000 much.
Sanrio came out with a platinum Hello Kitty. Its W3.8xH5.6cm and weighs 590g. The miniature Hello Kitty comes with seven hair ribbons made of gems including diamond, ruby, pink sapphire, amethyst and blue topaz.
The figurine comes with a price tag of ¥18,9-million -- ($163,000 US) a record high in Hello Kitty's extensive line-up.
Only one set is available, which went on sale Tuesday for the holiday shopping season at the Mitsukoshi department store in Tokyo.
