How would you like to see a crossover bringing the best of the famed Hello Kitty universe together with the good ol’ Barbie franchise? Well, if that sounds like an exciting concept to you, there’s no way on Earth you won’t like what Sanrio did to mark Hello Kitty’s 43rd birthday.
To celebrate the occasion, Sanrio and Mattel joined forces to introduce the ‘Barbie Hello Kitty’ – which is a cute, little classic Barbie doll dressed in a Hello Kitty-inspired outfit.
It’s a super-cute, bow-buttoned red sweater flaunting a Hello Kitty appliqué. Along with it goes a pink skirt with embroidered bows sporting a sitting Hello Kitty and her three trademark apples. The get-up is completed with red heels with red bows, white socks, red bows in her hair, and a Hello Kitty purse.
If you’re a collector, you will definitely love the certificate of authenticity that comes along with the product. Not just that, with the new Barbie Hello Kitty doll, you also get a stand so that you can properly show off the doll.
Barbie Hello Kitty retails at $100 and is available for order on the official Barbie website. You can also order it at Sanrio stores, as well as a select few retailers. But you better act fast, because there are only 10,000 of them available and they have already sold out at Barbie.com, but there is currently stock available at Amazon.
