Anyway, in Japan the strange looking feline is huge. Kids and adults alike adore the little creature, and the marketing people are unfortunately all too aware of this. You can buy hello Kitty everything. From suitcases to sandals, and videos to vibrators. Yeah, even vibrators! If you don’t believe me check here.
So, seeing as this year marks a momentous time for the Hello Kitty money making machine, the jewellery shop Ginza Tanaka will be selling a limited edition jewel encrusted Hello Kitty. Only 30 will go on sale, and if you happen to have 3,000,000 Yen (15,400 Pounds) spare, you could be one of the lucky buyers.
To stop you missing out, I should tell you that they go on sale from February 2nd. You might want to consider getting there early to avoid the rush.
*The picture shown is not the Hello Kitty mentioned in the article. It’s one that went on sale last year. A bargain it has to be said, retailing for a thrifty 400,000 Yen (2,000 pounds). A picture of the item in question regrettably couldn’t be found. The author apologizes for any kitty confusion.
