Truth be told, we’ve never been into many character things at all. Even as children, neither Malissa or I (or any of our siblings for that matter) were fanatic for a certain character, show, or company (like Disney). I guess that’s just not how we were raised.
However, I do distinctly remember that we had a Sanrio (the company that created Hello Kitty) store in one of our local malls throughout jr. high and we LOVED it there! They had the cutest little products and amazing pens and pencils! As someone who prided herself in having the coolest writing utensils, i.e. totally unnecessary little doo-dads added onto them, I loved going to the Sanrio store and picking out fun new ones to add to my collection.
Additionally, and more importantly than the cool pens they had, this store had the most AMAZING selection of bubble gum. They seriously had packs of blueberry bubblegum, banana bubblegum, strawberry, pineapple and every other fruit flavor imaginable! Plus, a bunch of other unique flavors. Because bubble gum is my FAVORITE, I could not resist buying a couple packs every time we went to the mall.
So, while I maybe never have had a Hello Kitty full-on get up, I had plenty of fun little gadgets and bubble gums with her cute little head on them. And I have always thought she was possibly the cutest little cartoon character out there! She’s always featured in new little outfits and bows and I just love that about her. In fact, I think her bow is so cute that I decided to throw a whole little party based on the accessory!
Avery, has all these adorable new Hello Kitty themed printables that are perfectly created to work with their labels and other products. There are a ton of cute options and I just love how easily you can put together a whole party with their templates! I’ve always said I think that graphics are one of the most important parts of a cute party and this takes all the work out of that. (PST see our Instagram this week for an awesome Avery GIVEAWAY!)
