Hello Kitty 45th Anniversary

Posted on


Hello Kitty has been celebrating her 45th anniversary this year! She’s not the oldest kawaii character but definitely the most well-known, and I’m sure a lot of older kawaii fans have a soft spot for her. November is her birthday month so if you’d like to help her celebrate, here’s some of the cutest collaborations, events and special releases.

Hello Kitty 45th Anniversary plush doll

Sanrio Japan has released a limited edition Hello Kitty 45th birthday doll and she’s all dressed up for a party with a beautiful dress, hair bow and shoes. You’ll need use a forwarding service to order outside Japan.

Hello Kitty loves to make friends and her collaborations with tokidoki are always super cool. There’s lots to choose from in the new rainbow and pastel collections including some very affordable items like this journal.

I also love the collaboration with artist Candie Bolton and Kidrobot at Sanrio USA. How kawaii is this hoodie?

Hello Kitty World Market

World Market have a new Hello Kitty Holiday Collection with lots of exclusive products from cookie decorating kits to coin banks. There’s a small selection online (USA only) and loads more if you can get to a store in person. We shared some more photos on Instagram if you’d like a look.

Hello Kitty cafe London

As well as the Sanrio Cafe at Tombo, London has another option for cute Hello Kitty food and drink as Japan Centre Ichiba have their own cute menu too including a bento box, sundae and dumpling. It’s available until 24th November at their Westfield White City branch. If you can’t make it along, there’s exclusive tote bags in their online shop, which ships worldwide.
