Hello Kitty turns 35 in style
On occasion of her birthday we have the "Super Hello Kitty Jewel Doll."
The news release describes her in detail:
"studded with a 1.027 carat diamond on its ribbon, 403 pink sapphires on its body, a citrine for its yellow nose, black spinels for its eyes and a total of 1,939 pieces of white topaz for its head on a platinum body. Luxury crystal maker Swarovski, Japanese toy firm Sanrio and Japanese jewelery maker I.K. unveiled the 10.5 cm-tall Hello Kitty, which is priced at $15 million yen (about $167,000)."
Won't find that in the 100 yen shop!
