Now let's get one thing straight. Just because we're men, it doesn't mean we don't like Hello Kitty. It doesn't mean we aren't secretly moved by the cuteness of her huge, soulful eyes. And it most certainly doesn't mean we're not allowed to keep her on our bedside table and pretend it's really for the wife. Good. Now that's settled, we can move on. Hello Kitty has its roots appropriately set in popular Japanese pop culture of "Kawaii" which translated means cute. Altogether now - 'Awwwwwwww'. These small collectable dolls are a perfect companion and room accessory for any girl (or as we've established of course boy) looking to give their kittie beanies another friend to play with. Hello Kitty Retro is a super soft super cute kitty, that loves the style of of her retro years. She comes with her own special 80's outfit with added stars over her right eye. Not that we've looked at her that closely or anything.
