Get ready for an awesome celebration for Sanrio's 50th Anniversary! JapanLA will be curating the art show for the celebration, taking place Nov 12-21 in Los Angeles. There will also be games, workshops, and parties too! More info coming soon!
For now, check out all the new, collectible items that are being made special for the Sanrio 50th Anniversary! These are limited items, so once they're gone, they will not be made again. This is the new plush of Hello Kitty dressed as other Sanrio characters. They usually only allow these to be made and sold at Puroland (Hello Kitty Theme Park), in Japan, but they are available in the US for a limited time. Check out Hello Kitty dressed as My Melody, Tuxedo Sam, & Chococat!
Hello Kitty dressed as Keroppi, Pochacco, & Badtz Maru.
The plush come in 3 sizes, 9"-10": $20, 5"-6": $12, and 3" keychains: $7.95. Here are some backstories and pics of the Sanrio characters.
My Melody was born in the forest of Mari Land. She is honest and good natured. Her favorite hobby is baking cookies with her mother and her favorite food is pound cake.
Hello Kitty as My Melody Pillow, $24, measures 16" wide
Tuxedo Sam was born in the South Pole. He is a roly-poly penguin who speaks both Penguinese and English. Due to his aristocratic background, you will always find Tuxedo Sam in a tux. He has a collection of 365 bow-ties. Plush available in 3 sizes, and 16" pillow too.
Chococat is a little boy cat who tends to be scatterbrained. He is always up on the latest news thanks to his ultra-sensitive "antenna" whiskers. He gets his name from his chocolate- colored nose.
Keroppi lives with his brother, sister and parents in a big house on the edge of Donut Pond, the largest and bluest pond around. Keroppi and his friends share his love for baseball and boomerangs. Most often he is seen with his little snail friend Den Den, always tagging along a little behind. 10" plush: $20, 6" plush $12, 3" keychain $7.95
Keroppi Pillow, $24
Pochacco is the most popular purebred in the neighborhood. This sports-minded pup is the best three-on-three basketball player on the playground and a not-so-shabby soccer goalie, too. He’s a real original—how many vegetarian canines do you know? Pochacco loves carrots but banana ice cream is his all-time favorite.
As his April 1st birthday would suggest, Badtz Maru is one mischievous little penguin. He lives with his mother and pinball-playing father in Gorgeoustown. Badtz Maru has dreams of greatness when he grows up, but for now, he rolls his eyes at his humorous life in Gorgeoustown.
