I love Hello Kitty! I grew up collecting Hello Kitty stuff from pencils to stationery to erasers to dolls to toys to bed sheets to everything Hello Kitty! I still have my Kitty scissors when I was in Grade 1 and have shown it to my daughter for her to appreciate how vaulable Hello Kitty is in my life.
I am not surprised that my daughter loves her too because she is just adorable. I think Hello Kitty is for every age regardless is you are 5 or 95. I just feel that you're never too old to have a Hello Kitty doll or any stuff of hers for that matter.
I promised my daughter that I will give her a surprise when she comes back from her summer vacation in Manila. She actually did not want anything because we were saving due to the harsh times but I insisted. I bought her this cute Hello Kitty stuffed toy. It is so soft and huggable! It has nice soft fur like that of a cat and holds a felt cupcake with velcro snaps in each of her hands. the doll is filled with synthetic fibre.
This is a great gift for those with birthdays but I still chose it because I love cupcakes! Her size is about 7 inches high and 5 inches width and 5 inches wide (gauging the head size of Kitty).
It's not such a big doll but good enough to put on top of a curio or table for display. She is in a sitting position so there is no problem placing her anywhere.
