Hello Kitty in Wonderland Art & Exhibition

This weekend Sanrio opened an exhibition called Hello Kitty Wonderland in Nagoya, Japan. Apart from funny optical illusions and a card game maze, the event location delights with lots of cute Alice in Wonderland inspired Hello Kitty art, created by the woman behind the cat, Japanese character designer and illustrator Yuko Yamaguchi. Just like the white bunny designs, the kawaii art of earlier successful Hello Kitty exhibitions show her strong influence on Sanrio’s most famous character, as seen in her lovely strawberry designs. We are sure Hello Kitty is in very good hands and can’t wait for her next cute creations.

Gudetama ‘Eggs-hibition’ and store in Hong Kong.

Say hello to Gudetama, one of Sanrio‘s new characters. This year the lazy little egg came out of his shell to surprise customers in Hong Kong’s busy shopping area Mong Kok. Together with a pop-up store, fans can explore truly ‘egg-cellent’ exhibits, including a kawaii Gudetama themed bakery, a commuter train and Japanese restaurants. As the pictures from the Hong Kong website unwire show, there are also some special limited edition products on sale until September. However, fans of Gudetama and Hello Kitty don’t need to go egg-hunting, but can find their favorite Sanrio characters at modes4u.

New Sanrio friends and Hello Kitty fabrics in our shop

Great news for all fans of Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars.  We received cute new Sanrio fabrics and the little white cat brought along new friends. Meet Kirimi-chan the cute Salmon fillet and Gudetama the lazy egg. At first glimpse they may not seem as kawaii and cuddly as her other pals, but their authenticity makes up for it. Tasty looking Kirimi-chan was introduced after Sanrio fans hungry for more, voted her ‘most wanted character‘, while no other egg in the world can reflect our unmotivated mood like inert Gudetama. Therefore, we are convinced that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
