In middle school, Sanrio was the “It” brand and with it came lots and lots of Hello Kitty. I was more of a Badtz-Maru character, but I tolerated the pink-bowed feline. Then came other fads and the animated gang was left by the wayside.
What I didn’t realize was that while I moved on to Beanie Babies and burn books, other parts of the world held fast onto the Hello Kitty trend. And by other parts of the world, I mostly mean Asia. Man, do some people love their Hello Kitty.
Now, things have come almost full circle. I’m not exactly in love with Hello Kitty but I’m damn well fascinated by her pervasiveness. I’ve mentioned Hello Kitty cars, dogbeds, weddings, and anti-virus software. In fact, I try and find a Hello Kitty product for every weird list I come up with…until today. Today, one odd Hello Kitty product wasn’t enough. Today I’ve compiled a list of the oddest Hello Kitty products ever. Cars and dogbeds were just the beginning.
Some of the below items may be Photoshopped (please let some of them be Photoshopped), but the fact that someone even went through the trouble, speaks volumes.
Hello Kitty isn’t just for pretty interiors, but exhaust pipes as well.
