Hello Kitty is big here in the Netherlands. You can walk into any random store and there’s a big chance there’ll at least be some products with Hello Kitty on it. Sanrio seems to hand out licenses to use the character to anyone for anything. Good for them, they must be loaded. But just maybe they should do a little quality control every now and again. When we went into C&A last week to look for some clothes for the kids we saw a whole line of clothing using the above image. Now I don’t know about you, but to me it looks like Hello Kitty giving the finger. Which is funny, but not too appropriate for toddler clothing.
