Hello Kitty Holiday Fun And Games

posted by:

I decided to open this Hello Kitty Holiday Fun and Games I got during the Holidays:] The gift set came with four different Hello Kitty fun and games, including Hello Kitty Go Fish, Hello Kitty Old Maid, Hello Kitty Bingo and Hello Kitty Puzzle.

Hello Kitty Fun & Games:D

100 Piece Hello Kitty Puzzle

I love puzzles :D This one took about 5 minutes to complete, but then again it only had 100 pieces and they were big too…haha

I noticed that they also made a Hello Kitty Bingo set in a tin box, which you can buy from Toys”R”Us for $9.99, but the game is slightly different.

This Hello Kitty Bingo game is not your ordinary Bingo, the objective of this game is to be the first player to fill up your bingo board with Hello Kitty tokens. There are 2 ways to play: Alphabets and Pictures.

Hello Kitty Old Maid, remember playing old maid as a kid? So, the objective of the game is to be the first player with the most pairs at end of the game, but the player left with the “old maid” card automatically loses.

I used to love playing gold fish! But wouldn’t it be more fun if it was Hello Kitty Gold Fish? For those who do not know already, the objective of the game is to be the player with the most matching sets of 4 at the end of the game.

Hello Kitty “Three Apples” Gift Bags

posted by:

Remember those long cold mornings at “Three Apples”? Standing in line early in the morning and waiting for gift bags? Dealing with people budging [butting, skipping, cutting] in line? Seeing people getting frustrated because gift bags were only available to the first 100 visitors in line?

Hello Kitty Fan Appreciation Day Gift Bag. This bag made my day, the bag was quite heavy with miscellaneous Hello Kitty gifts inside, including Hello Kitty Strawberry News, Hello Kitty lotion, notebook, mirror, Pez dispenser, chap stick, candies, puzzle and coloring book ;]

Hello Kitty Halloween Party Gift Bag: I really like how Sanrio put this together and gave us a toothbrush, encouraging us to brush our teeth after we go Trick-or-Treating :P

hellokittygiftbags3

For Halloween, I dressed up in a Hello Kitty yukata and Dave from Sanrio gifted me a Hello Kitty Fan. And I also received a Paint Your Own Hello Kitty Bank for bringing in a self-inspired carved pumpkin :]

hellokittygiftbags4

Hello Kitty Birthday Party Gift Bag: Similar items from Hello Kitty Fan Appreciation Day,  but they added Hello Kitty bubbles, stickers and Loungefly pins <3

hellokittygiftbags9

Hello Kitty Birthday Tiara and Wand were given out during the birthday cake cutting ceremony for kids, I guess I am still a kid after all :]

hellokittygiftbags5

Hello Kitty Meet the Artist Party Gift Bag: This is one of my favorite gift bags, it really made sense how they gave us a coloring and activity book, plus a shimmering art package with metallic pens on the day the we met the artists. I can’t wait to doodle on my new arts and crafts book!

Hello Kitty Bats and Cats Masquerade Gift Bag: Part 1. When I called the prior day, Royal/T Cafe informed me that gift bags were given out in the morning. After waiting in line for a couple hours, I realize that JapanLA posted that gift bags were to be given out in the evening. I was a bit frustrated, but when doors open at 10am with about 20 people in line. Dave from Sanrio informed us that he would give us something just for coming out :]

Hello Kitty Bats and Cats Masquerade Gift Bag: Part 2. This was given out in the evening, Hello Kitty desk calender, I LOVE IT <3

hellokittygiftbags8

Hello Kitty Fashion Show: Part 1. This was by far the crappiest gift bag, but I guess since it was the last day they probably ran out of gifts? A lot of people was disappointed, some waited 5-6 hours for this bag :[ Look on the bright side, Hello Kitty straws!!

hellokittygiftbags10

Hello Kitty Fashion Show: Part 2. After receiving gift bags from the morning, I assumed they were completely out of gifts. But when we got inside, I saw rows of Hello Kitty tote bags <3 You can also get this tote from  Toy”R”Us, happy hunting!

Hello Kitty Three Apples Gift Bags: Part 1.

These gift bags were left sitting in the hallway outside of my room ever since Three Apples. I finally decided to go over all my gift bags and I realized I had too many duplicate items. I will be donating most of these gifts to a local toy drive this holiday season and hopefully they will go to great homes with children to help “Spread the love of Hello Kitty” <3

Hello Kitty Toys”R”Us

posted by:

For the first time in ages, I went to Toys”R”Us when I found out there was a sleeping over coming up. They were the only place that sold the Hello Kitty Sleeping bag :] In fact, Toys”R”Us actually carried a whole line of Hello Kitty merchandise. I would have never thought about that until I came across the sleeping bag.

Hello Kitty Sleepover Set comes with a dual handled canvas tote and an eye mask.

James insist that I should get another one of these fleece throw, now I have three :] I <3 it, its so warm, especially during winter time!

hellokittytoysrus7

Toy”R”Us was having a promotion, with any $30 Hello Kitty purchase, you will receive a Hello Kitty Holographic Boxed Beauty Set during the month of November. [Valued at $12.99.]

I was surprise that Toy”R”Us had almost an aisle full of Hello Kitty.

hellokittytoysrus10hellokittytoysrus11hellokittytoysrus12

Toy”R”Us carried a lot of similar items from Target, but one item I never seen at Target was this Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary Plush. Yes, it’s a Toys”R”Us Exclusive limited edition plush! She looks tiny, but she’s actually 18″ tall and very soft and cuddly. I must go back to and take her home in the near future before she’s SOLD OUT <3

Hello Kitty Birthday Party

posted by:

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty <3 Gift bags were being handed out again to the first 100 visitors in line:] I almost overslept this morning, as we rushed to Royal/T! When we arrived there, it was barely 7am. The line was already at the fence compared to last Saturday. As I walked towards the end of the line where my friend Angela was standing at, we were #62 in line :D

hellokittybirthday1

I love the cute Hello Kitty Hoodie that Angela’s wearing, even though it’s made for kids, it fits her really well. It was completely sold out at the pop-up store, so I’m on a mission to find my Hello Kitty Hoodie too:]

At about 9am, the people who worked for Royal/T finally came out and gave us tickets to prevent people from cutting. Everyone behind and in front of me were all really upset, due to all the people cutting in front :/ When I saw the lady approaching us, the tickets that she had left seem like it was barely enough for us. I was standing right behind Angela and she had two tickets left…one for me<3 and one for James…yes we were…99 and …100. How AWESOME IS THAT?!?

hellokittybirthday39

James was kind enough to give his ticket to a girl we met last week, Yazmin, she was such a sweet girl! I hope you had fun!

hellokittybirthday3hellokittybirthday4

I also met up with two Lolita girls who were in line with me last Saturday for Hello Kitty’s Fan Appreciation Day. We were all lining up for the autograph signing from Kitty Mama “Yuko Yamaguchi” Hello Kitty’s head designer and Simone Legno for “Tokidoki”

I was walking around after the workshop and I ran into Gary Baseman at the front of the Gallery. Gary is such an awesome person, he loves to talk and start conversations. We went on and on and we almost lost track of time. I had to go all the way back to my car to pick up my sketchbook, but it was worth it. Not only did he autograph my book, he drew a cute little girl holding Toby and Hello Kitty <3

I love this workshop! It was a completely DIY project. The Hello Kitty toy bank that we are holding is actually a, “Paint your own Hello Kitty Bank” from Target or ToysRus, for $9.99. Everyone was so creative, I decided to stay on the original side and painted an original kitty. Some of us took advantage of this workshop and painted a pink kitty, momoberry kitty, hawaiian kitty, nerd kitty, pirate kitty, and even a pumpkin kitty.

hellokittybirthday26

We took a funny class photo with all the participant @ Buff Monster Toy Workshop. Everyone was so creative, I’m so glad I participated in this workshop!

hellokittybirthday13

As we were exiting the VIP room where the workshops were being held. Angela saw this Hello Kitty head and couldn’t resist, she made me put it on after her. This Hello Kitty head was one of the original heads that Sanrio x MAC used to promote their makeup line. And they were actually worn by men at the MAC store.

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty:] 200 cupcakes were make for this special event. Hundreds of fans joined LA Ladies Choir to sing “Happy Birthday” to Hello Kitty. Tons of fans were swarming against Hello Kitty to take pictures as she left the scene, including myself at a distance:]
