My Melody vs. Kuromi

Posted on March 15, 2021 by

While many people think that Kuromi is a punk version of Hello Kitty, she is actually My Melody’s rival. They may look like opposites at first glance, but they actually have many things in common. They both wear a hood that covers their rabbit ears, they both like to cook, and they both like pink. However, their overall aesthetic is very different – which one is more your style?

My Melody & Kuromi feature together in a new Pastel Home collection at ARTBOX (UK) . I love that these sweet mini tote bags feature the same items in the details but tailored to the character, like the little mirrors and bows.

My Melody & Kuromi watches

Now that everyone has a smartphone, people don’t depend on watches for the time. But I still love the impact they make as an accessory. These charming watches from Sanrio (US) feature the smiling faces of these adorable rivals. It’s so clever that each watch includes a charm of the character’s best friend!
