Hello Kitty's 40 years old this year!
Currently on at Windsor House is an exhibition of
By the exhibit area is a Hello Kitty pop-up store
For my money, this cute trio of baby Hello Kitty, baby Dear Daniel
and teddy are the most adorable in the whole show! :)
It doesn't take a special anniversary for Hello Kitty mania -- or even just special Hello Kitty exhibitions (interactive or otherwise) -- to manifest itself in the territory that shares the same initials as the cute cat. Still, on account of this year being the 40th anniversary of Kitty-chan's coming into being, I am expecting a bumper crop of Hello Kitty-themed events to take place in 2014.
Earlier in the year, 7-Eleven had its annual Sanrio-themed promotion -- with 2014's being Hello Kitty's Hello Party. (And here's thanking my friends who helped make it so that I managed to get pretty much every figurine from that collection that I wanted!)
While I continue to await this year's annual McDonalds Hello Kitty plushie promotion (which already has begun in Singapore!) and this year's interactive exhibition extravaganza, I can content myself by visiting the Hello Kitty exhibition and pop up shop at Windsor House that opened on April 6th and will run through to June 8th. And yes, I admit it: I've been there twice already but I swear I've not bought anything from the pop-up store... because, in all honesty, I don't think there's anything there that's as nice as the (many and varied) Hello Kitty items I already own!
If only there were plushie versions of the baby Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel duo that were, say, around 2 feet tall or long... If so, I definitely would be tempted to add them to my personal plushie collection! ;b
