I must first confess, I AM NOT A FAN OF HELLO KITTY. But thee's just something about these adorable dolls and those before that makes me happy. Maybe they're just really adorable.. though they're not exactly FAT and FLUFFY like most soft toys I have...
I remember the first craze being the millenium HK dolls where they had wedding couples...
Those were insane back then...
In recent years, I got this set when I was in HK with the hubby and his family.
It was soooooooooo adorable to me then! And it was pretty silly of me to hand carry this back from HK.
The HK version had a storybook (hardcover), some vouchers and also some 'magic' cards.
It wasn't launched in Singapore then and it wasn't the hype.
It was only 1-2 years later did they launch it in Singapore in a different version.
They had these. The black Singing Bones was the one that threw Singapore into a frenzy. I was no exception. I had the whole set (owl inclusive)... of course I want Singing Bones to complete the set! I queued up for 2 hours at Mcdonalds prior to its launch. And wanted for 1.5-2 hours after the queue started to move to buy it.
Prior to this launch, they had this...
But it wasn't really popular. I can't really even remember how many of these I have but I'm pretty sure I have 1/2.
Then in 2013 when my mil was in Hong Kong, she got this for me...
I love my kitties.
This time round, they're fluffier. And fatter.
I couldn't help but salivate when I saw them online.
I tried ordering it the whole morning, and so did the bil but to no avail.
Thankfully, they reopened for orders and I was able to purchase the number of sets I needed for family and friends.
Now, I am a happy girl. (:
