Top Picks for 07.19.10

Hey, Addicts!

I have finally found good Sanrio things to recommend! For two weeks, I really wondered if Sanrio would start to finally bring the *good* stuff. Unfortunately, Sanrio only did with the character, Chococat. Seriously, I am so tempted to go collect this stuff rather than wait on their Hello Kitty products.

For you HK Addicts:

My Sanrio Rating: 
Vintage style here! Don't you just love the design?

My Sanrio Rating:  ♥ 1/2

My Sanrio Rating:  ♥ 1/2
2010 Laptop Case: Stripe   $68 USD
For the stripe series, I think the whole design would have been so much better if they had made HK solid instead of stripes going through the character.

Now I'm going to recommend something other than my favorite five characters because this series from Chococat is very, VERY cuuuuuuute! If I were really open to obsessing on a new Sanrio character, this would tempt me so much.

For Chococat Lovers:
Overrall Argyle series Rating: 
What I love about this series is that Sanrio sure knows how to make Chococat look good! Look at that brilliant color scheme. It looks like a breath of  fresh air and all around clean design. No fuss. No clutter. No unnecessary distractions... just focusing on the basic character. No weird outfits or total different transformations. Just plain and simple.

2010 Chococat 6-way Writer Pen

2010 18" Sling Bag   $34 USD

2010 Chococat Long Wallet

My favorite of all: 2010 Stainless Steel Food Container

And here's my own tragedy of the day!

Dishonorable Mention:

My Sanrio Rating: 

Compared to the vintage pieces, this piece makes me want to cry. I'm waiting, Sanrio. Let me emphasis this, I've been waiting FOR YEARS for a good designed Hello Kitty two sided pencil case. You did right with My Melody, though not sure about Little Twin Stars. Wasn't sure if the LTS 2-sided case was a fake or not. That's how bad the design was for me to question the authenticity. 

Also, the 50th Anniversary Plushes are available.... here. I saw a close up picture of Keroppi-- does anyone agree with me that the plush looks funny? Hello Kitty looks good, but I'll have a final verdict once I see it in stores.
