The Wacky World of Hello Kitty



As a self confessed Hello Kitty freak and Halloween fanatic I decided to combine the two interests to make a Hello Kitty Witch this year! And if you feel like joining in then you can get the pattern here.

Hello Kitty makes me so mad. She's been going strong for 35 years and still has fur as dewy and unlined as a kitten. But as time has passed and her marketing people have found new ways to exploit her charms, things have inevitably gone, well, a little tasteless.

Let me know if any of these products tickle your fancy. Would you buy:



1. Hello Kitty Assault Rifle


2. Condoms



3. Condom Holders

Surely this is the ultimate turn-off? You might want to keep this handy by the bedside as the ultimate in birth control. The ick factor will make you not want to have sex full stop. Plus she's staring at you the whole time. Seriously freaky.



4. Tooth caps

I mean, come on, who wouldn't like to have Hello Kitty’s face implanted permanently in their mouth?





5. Urinal targets

This one sends a bizarre message. I mean if you were a fan you wouldn't disrespect Miss Kitty by weeing on her now would you, although she is telling you to. Which could mess with young minds a tad.



6. On your Sausages

Makes me think of that Meatloaf song. "I will eat anything for love ...but I won't eat that."



7. Hello Kitty Airplane

Taiwanese Eva Air has a Hello Kitty airplane that flies between Taiwan and Japan.


8. Fake Nails

This Kitty's got claws ...miaow! I'm a self confessed fake nail fanatic but these are just plain wierd.


9. Becks Beer

Who is the target market for this?






10. Pizza

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little....

So what do you think? Have I converted you into a Hello Kitty maniac? What other products do you think would be perfect stamped with a Hello Kitty?

I used to love Hello Kitty - there's just something so cute about her although I think I might give the condom holder a miss!!

It's not the Hello Kitty sticker on the stock of the M-16 that bothers me, it's the fact that the M-16 is PINK!

I've been on a bus (in Thailand) where we had Hello Kitty headrest covers..really odd.

Not as odd however as the Hello Kitty impersonators who offered me a blow job for $10 in Bangkok...that's just going too far.

Wow, first of all I thought you had handmade these things. Then I realised that they are real things. Frightening to think the Hello Kitty market is not nine year old girls but junk food eating beer swilling vigilantes (I can see an Indie movie in this..)

I love hello kitty too but I don't think I would want her in my mouth!
Thanks so much for dropping by and following. Returning the favour now and looking forward to reading lots more! :)

I honestly don't get the Hello Kitty thing. I never have. But some of these just take it to a whole new level of ick.

I bought your book! I can't wait to read it.

Sorry. Just choked a little, saw the Vibrator comment%^?!?! They really have them?

The mum of all trades said...

Oh these are just terrible. I'm sorry but if people are buying Hello Kitty beer or condoms they need to grow the hell up!

Beesley Buzz said...

this is so funny. I wouldn't mind the tooth caps as they'd look better than all the fillings i've got in my teeth! thanks for cheering up my day with this funny post x

EmmaK said...

Melissa...Thanks so much for buying my book! Let me know what you think of it.

Katriina said...

Good grief! And here I was thinking that my friend's Hello Kitty toaster was a bit out there :)

My four year old daughter loves Hello Kitty but it's not really just a kids thing is it. Some of these products are just weird.
