Hello Kitty Blindbox Figures at Urban Outfitters

I saw on Urban Outfitters’ website these Hello Kitty Blindbox figures.  I think they’re awesome, although I’m not so keen on how they market it as blindbox.  It reminds me of my son’s last birthday party where I bought tons of Disney Cars toys from a nearby vending machine.  Each child got one and wouldn’t you know it, 1/3 were of the same toy.

The Hello Kitty Blindbox figures sell for $8.00 US at UrbanOutfitters.com.  They’re about 3″ or 7.5 cm tall.  This is series 3 and it contains 10 different Hello Kitty figures.

Hello Kitty Magic Fabric

I discovered Hello Kitty Magic Fabric when I was at Toys R Us at Metrotown Mall (Burnaby, BC). There’s actually more than just Hello Kitty, but of course, these ones caught my eye. It allows you to create puffy little characters out of fabric.

I always feel like I miss out when Hello Kitty is at MacDonald’s so for once, I actually caught it while it was there last Sunday. You can now get Sanrio watches! I took these pictures at the MacDonald’s in Vancouver at Main St. and Terminal St. (near Science World).

From the next couple of pictures you can get an idea of how big it is at 3″ x 2″ (7.5 x 5 cm).  It stuck really well to the wall when I tried it out.

You can just pull your toothbrush out and the Kitty automatically opens.  When you push the toothbrush back in, it automatically closes too.  Very easy!
