review: hello kitty sweet, happy, fun book!
Hello Kitty Sweet, Happy, Fun Book!: A Sneak Peek Into Her Supercute World is a large padded cover book written by Marie Moss and published by Running Press and is all about the life and times of Hello Kitty! It’s so much fun to see how she’s evolved over the years starting in 1975 with a coin purse, stationery and small gifts. Now there are retail stores, theme parks and even a Hello Kitty airplane! The book includes the chronology of Hello Kitty starting with her first concept drawings and tells all about her life. Did you know she has a boyfriend named Daniel and three darling pets (two cats and a hamster)?
There are all kinds of collectibles inside to reminisce about from notebooks to bikes to toasters! Hello Kitty sure has stayed up on technology over the years, with her own DVD player and other tech savvy offerings, like flash drives and digital cameras. Hello Kitty Sweet, Happy, Fun Book! spotlights all different types of Hello Kitty products, including jewelry and clothing, like the white ear muffs with ears and a red bow, just like Hello Kitty! Plus, you can keep up your beauty regimen entirely with Hello Kitty products, from bandaids to the cutest contact lens case. I loved seeing the photos of the Hau Sheng hospital’s maternity ward, which has been totally revamped to a Hello Kitty theme! Newborns and Hello Kitty together, what could be more adorable! And I sure wish that they had a Hello Kitty Sweets cafe where I live — all of the decor and food are completely Hello Kitty!
The little trinkets tucked into secret places throughout the book are an extra special addition. I was excited to see a ticket to Sanrio Puroland (albeit voided), plus stickers, iron on decal and more! Hello Kitty Sweet, Happy, Fun Book! lives up to it’s name as an all in one Hello Kitty fest, jam packed with all things Hello Kitty — perfect for any HK fan!
