Three Generations of Sanrio Love

I can still recall the first time I walked into a Hello Kitty store, as if it were yesterday!  I was 8 years old, living in Honolulu, Hawaii.  My childhood friends and I went together, it was a magical time!

I can not begin to describe the emotions I was feeling at the time.  I wish I had some photos to share with you of that day.  It was one of those moments in time that can only be captured in a photo, rather than verbally.  The store had just recently opened, in our eyes, it was the best thing to come to Honolulu!  I'm not sure if the store still exists, honestly I do not know how to get there or the name of it.  When you are 8 years old, location and directions are not important.  It was that magical moment in time, that was all that mattered!  To this day, I still get a little giddy when I find a Sanrio product!  If you follow me on Instagram, you know all about my Hello Kitty pajama pants! (Love them after a long day at work)

Yes, I admit, I'm a Sanrio/Hello Kitty fanatic!  The totally awesome thing is...  So is my daughter!  Let's just say she has a Hello Kitty toaster, television, towels, and more! My granddaughter, who is 6 months old, is in training to be one too!  The love for Sanrio is definitely three generations strong!

I recall taking my daughter to the Hello Kitty Store, in Honolulu, when she was little.  The first time I introduced her to this magical place, she was four years old.  The look on her face, when she walked into the store, was priceless!  I can't wait for the day my granddaughter is old enough, to experience the magic and excitement!  In the meantime, while I wait (not that I want her to grow up too fast), I can shop online for little goodies for her and her Mommy, of course! (Maybe just a few things for myself!)



Do you have a love for all things Sanrio?  Would love to hear all about your collection!  Who is your favorite Sanrio character?  Hello Kitty would be my first, then My Melody and Twin Stars.

  3. My little girl is in love with Hello Kitty! In fact, just today I set up a Hello Kitty themed tea party. I was more into HK's friends, than the cat herself, but I'm really glad my little one likes such a wholesome franchise. #creativebloggersnetwork
