Hello Kitty


I’m not sure whether this post should be named “Hello Sucker” or “Hello Kitty” but there I was, running a non-doll related errand to Walmart and suddenly find myself in the pink aisle (you know how that works, dumb feet with a mind of their own!), and on the shelf was a bunch of the new Hello Kitty fashions.



I have been weaning myself off plastic playsets, dolls with baby eyes, and doll fashions with too much contrasting stitching, Velcro closures, one-sided fabric patterns… I’ve been saying “no to new” just because it’s new, refocusing hobby interests, saving money, taking a break from it all, but my darn hands were in sync with my wayward feet and before I could say “Hello Kitty,” a few fashions flew off the shelf and landed in my cart.




I’m too oldish to be interested in Hello Kitty fashions and my dollies tend to like what I like, so this was madness (you know how it works, just can’t help oneself). Once at home, I decided it would be mean to force a beloved dolly into a Hello Kitty fashion and called upon a volunteer instead. Eden popped out of her bin and said she’d do it (the appeal wasn’t in the fashion, but in getting out of the bin).



I sorta like the sunglasses, the daisy bracelet and the adorable little kitty purse. And I kinda like that little red dress (the pattern is also on the back side of the dress). 


I guess I am not totally unhappy about my purchases, it was a dolly fix (and you know how that works). 



Cheers!`*.¸.*´

  1. :-D! Eden looks very cute in this dress :-). The purse is adorable. I really like the Hello Kitty outfits, but they are not for sale in our stores, at least not yet!

    1. I hope they come soon. There are one or two items that make cute additions to the dolly wardrobe, namely the sunglasses and bracelet. ツ

  2. My Walmart also had a massive amount of the new fashions and accessories. I was a little underwhelmed with it all but did get one of the accessory packs.

    1. I didn’t see any Hello Kitty accessory packs at my store. Kudos to you for resisting the rest of it.

  3. Haha, I know exactly how that works! I swear I didn't put those in my cart, but somehow they managed to get themselves in there! And since they were already in the cart at checkout, I didn't want to disrupt the line so I bought them! At least that's what I tell my daughter as she rolls her eyes back in her head at me!

    1. Oh, I love your justification - “didn’t want to disrupt the line so bought them.” LMAO!

  4. Ro, she looks so cute! Even though I know FR dolls don't go for cute, I too have given into the hello kitty craze and purchased them all. I am now on the care bear hunt, which the poppys are clamouring for...

    1. My FRs shuddered in horror when I was calling for a volunteer. “We’re rather be shot,” they snarled. Dolly attitude! “Not a problem. I have bullets,” I responded testily. Heads disappeared back into the bins and only Eden’s remained. Brave girl. Maybe that’s why I prefer Nu.Face over snooty FR. I know nothing about care bear, but my guess is, if your Poppys want them you will find them. ha!

  6. Hi Ro!
    I can relate! Every time I go into my local Wally's I wind up in the pink aisle. LOL I've seen these fashions there, but I've been on the fence about getting any. None of my girls seem overly thrilled about them, so I left the clothes on the shelf. Of course that can change. :-)

    1. The draw confounds me, and it’s comforting to know I am not the only one. I will be interested in knowing if you fall off the fence cos like you say, things change. *snort*

  7. I'm not a Hello Kitty fan, but that's a cute red dress and cuter accessories. Thanks, Eden, for modeling that outfit.

  8. I purchased a few of the HK items. Interestingly, they can no longer found in my area. I am so happy that I purchased what did when I did. Eden is such a trooper! Lol!
