For those of you who have a Universal Studios Hollywood Season Pass or planning to visit soon you are in for a new treat! A brand new store featuring Hello Kitty!
First of all my love for Hello Kitty goes back to elementary school. From all the Sanrio characters Hello Kitty was definitely my favorite. I remember taking trips to the Sanrio store just to buy stationary, pens, pencils, and occasionally I would talk my mom or dad into buying me a surprise grab bag. As a pass holder you receive emails with various updates going on around the park.
I received an email about a preview to the new Animation Studio Store which has a big section of it dedicated to the one and only Hello Kitty. My mom, sister, and I went to to a sneak peak of the store and immediately fell in love. There was so much Hello Kitty in one place it was overwhelmingly great. There was stationary, Hello Kitty pens, t-shirts , Loungefly purses, pins, Hello Kitty inspired treats, Stance socks, and even Hello Kitty ears. The Hello Kitty ears are $14.95 and you can purchase a detachable now for about $3-4 dollars.
The Animation Store is filled with anything you can think of Hello Kitty and it is fabulous. Depending on season pass you have some discounts are allowed so don’t be afraid to ask.
The official grand opening of this store is on March 1, 2018. The store is located near Water World not too far away from the entrance. Also available in this store in another section are other Universal characters such as: Madagascar, Shrek, Trolls, Spongebob, Kung Fu Panda and more. I am saving the last piece of information for last. Drum roll please.. you can actually meet Hello Kitty outside her store front!! Yes. It’s true! Luckily I was able to meet her using entering the store. So get Hollywood ready and head over to Universal Studios Hollywood, check out the store and meet Hello Kitty !
