Hello Kitty is a pretty strong brand. Beyond the usual toys and accessories, one could enjoy a piece of toast, and then a personal reverie, without leaving the Sanrio brand cocoon. But what if after toast and quiet time, one wanted a refreshing glass of wine? I am late to the party on this, but now there is Hello Kitty wine. It is never too early to have a late childhood, and, evidently never too late in the day to learn that it is just another Guiteau Monday.
*"Badtz-maru panties" comes up in the autocomplete, but they appear to be apocryphal. Thanks, Google! And definitely do not look for them on the internet at work.
