Every single time that I visit Universal Studios Hollywood, there is something new and awesome to see. Today was no different and was a pretty exciting day for me because I got to tour the brand new Animation Studio Store that just opened in Universal Studios. It is no secret that I am a HUGE Hello Kitty fan. I've loved Hello Kitty for as long as I can remember. This store takes Hello Kitty to a whole new level of cuteness, maybe even a level of cuteness that we didn't know existed until now. Did I pique your interest? Check out some of the stuff you can look forward to.
So, up until very recently I have never been much of a collector. But over time I have received such cool pins that I could not part with so now I am a pin collector. There were so many fun pins to collect, I felt a little overwhelmed, I kinda wanted all of them. This one was super cool! Do you see the Hello Kitty/E.T. mashup? If you don't remember, there used to be an E.T ride here at Universal Studios Hollywood. It was there when I was little girl and it was one of my favorite rides.
Meet Hello Kitty
Throughout the day you will be able to find Hello Kitty at the new Animation Studio Store ready to pose for pictures. Notice the detail on her skirt? It's film strips. So cute right?
When it comes to Hello Kitty, you had to know that there was going to be some super cute and delicious sweets on hand. From cupcakes, to fudge, to candy apples, to s'mores. Not only do they all taste as sweet as possible, but they are so damn cute and yes, instagram-able.
and more sweets. Oh my gosh.
Keroppi and Sanrio Friends
Being a fan of Hello Kitty means being a fan of all Sanrio characters. Pacheco, Pekkle, and Keroppi! Those were some of my favorites growing up. I know some people loved Little Twin Stars and Chococat, I mean, there are many to choose from. I loved finding Keroppi throughout the store.
Hello Kitty/Universal Studios Merchandise
Between all the pins and coffee tumblers, I'm going to need a whole new shelf dedicated to all of the Hello Kitty cuteness I found. Some of the exclusive merchandise you can look forward to is Hello Kitty incorporated into classic Universal titles such as Jaws, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Back to the Future, King-Kong, Jurassic Park and more.
Hello Kitty Build-A-Bow
Oh my gosh! This was such a cool display, where else can you build and customize your very own Hello Kitty Bow Headband? You can choose from a selection of colorful bow options.
You will also find brand new merchandise from Illumination Entertainment films, including Minions and Secret Life of Pets, and DreamWorks Animation Trolls. As well as classics like Kung-Fu Panda, Shrek, Dr. Seuss, Scooby-Doo, Curious George, Spongebob SquarePants and The Simpsons.
