hello kitty was conceived by japanese designer yuko shimizu. it has since then been put in production by japanese company sanrio in various formats, with merchandise ranging from dolls, stickers, greeting cards, clothes, accessories, school supplies, dishes, gadgets and home appliances. the hello kitty trademark has developed licensing arrangements worth more than billion dollars annually. her popularity worldwide has also led to the opening of two hello kitty theme parks, harmony land and the indoor sanrio purolan.

AGIP: hello kitty petrol ‘hello kitty’ chainsaw

nothing special to say here… except to hello kitty freaks who have already purchased the chainsaw, and need some gas to burn the corpse they tore to pieces with the chainsaw…

  • I read once that the only two products Sanrio excludes from Hello Kitty licensing deals are guns and knives. I guess the chainsaw conveniently circumvents those restrictions … 🙂
