Anime Toy Review

There are a lot of character-based flash drives now available. From Star Wars to Snoopy, you can find a flash drive for just about anything that strikes your fancy. And speaking of fancy, for this price, it had better come with a real kitty. 256MB flash drives can be had for practically nothing (flash-based devices are now getting so cheap, people are talking about them replacing hard drives, particularly in laptops), we're not sure what makes this one so expensive -- must be the Sanrio Tax...

Regardless, if you simply MUST have everything Hello Kitty (and trust me, there are people like this in the world), then this flash drive rules. How are you NOT getting through life without this?

Hello Kitty Wrist Watch
Hello Kitty Wrist Watch
Anime Toy Review

The wristwatch is a dying device. Most people we know use a cell-phone as their time-keeping gadget, because it's handy, it's accurate, and usually has an abundance of extra features such as an alarm clock. Nobody should ever need to strap a tick-tick-tick watch to their wrist.

Unless of course, you're out to make a statement. Unless of course, you're out to separate yourself from the herd, stand above the crowd, proclaim to the world that YOU ARE DIFFERENT!!!!! You are an individual and you have your own sense of style!

And what could be more stylish than a kitty with no mouth? An adorable Hello Kitty watch, who'll make you smile every time you check the time. Stand out and be noticed.

Hello Kitty Toaster
Hello Kitty Toaster
Anime Toy Review

Nothing makes breakfast more joyful than the image of Hello Kitty burnt onto your toast. It would be like a day without Orange Juice (nobody reading this is going to get that joke!). When you bite into head, you just have to wonder... She has no mouth, so can she scream? Kitty looks better with grape jelly all over her (I just know that sentence will get me in trouble with Homeland Security).

This colorful 2-slot toaster browns Kitty's sweet face onto every slice of bread. The appliance features 7 shade settings and 4 toasting modes: bagel, defrost, reheat and cancel. (What kind of toast is "cancel"?) Extra-wide slots let you warm thick slices, and a removable crumb tray makes cleanup easy. The decorative cool-touch exterior looks cheerful on your countertop, and has cord storage in the base. The perfect addition to any cute kitchen.

Hello Kitty:
The Remarkable Story of Sanrio and the Billion Dollar Feline Phenomenon

Anime Book Review

I have no mouth and I must scream! Some adore her. Others cough up fur balls over her overwrought cuteness. She's studied by marketing pros, cultural anthropologists and those who are just plain fascinated by Japanese cute culture and the weird fads that drive commercial civilization.
Hello Kitty!
This book tells the fascinating inside story of how Sanrio parlayed a cartoon kitty into a ferocious multibillion dollar global enterprise. Readers learn how and why the Hello Kitty brand clicked with children and adults, across cultures, and how it continues to successfully compete, internationally, with Disney and Warner Brothers. This book is packed with valuable lessons about the awesome power of branding, marketing, and licensing to capture the hearts and minds of consumers. Kitty is one powerful cat.

It's hard to be a fan of anime and not have a soft spot for Hello Kitty!
