Hello Kitty Toy Vending Machines

When I was little, I used to love popping in a quarter (yes, they were that cheap back in the day) and getting a little toy in a capsule. Nearby, we had this one where a chicken would lay eggs and you’d get one of her “eggs” with a toy inside. I thought that was cool, but then I went to Japan and their vending machines are a few notches cooler. If you know Gundam, you could get a toy robot. Actually, you could even get hot ramen (noodle) soup out of a vending machine.

Anyhow, I was at our local Chinese Mall Aberdeen Centre and several stores had Hello Kitty vending machines. Without looking really weird, I was able to get a couple of pictures. I found a few more pictures by other people on Flickr.

    This is so great! I think if my 13-year old self sees this, she would probably get insane. Now I’m 22 and my hands are quivering, I want to go here and purchase every single Hello Kitty item!
