Hello Kitty Jet

What do you get a cat who has everything? The world's cutest airline, of course! Hello Kitty (which scored over $1 billion in sales every year outside of Japan, to which the NeatoShop duly contributed) has added another way for you to spend your money: the Hello Kitty Jet.

Hiufu Wong of CNN Go has the story:

The carrier has recently launched three Hello Kitty-themed aircraft [Chinese language], on which everything from the fuselage to the flight attendants to the food is kitted out in the kawaii cat brand's images.

Passengers have been purring with delight, according to Anna Wong, an EVA Air public relations officer in Hong Kong. [...]

The new Taipei-based Hello Kitty jets -- called Apple Jet, Global Jet and Magic Jet -- will operate for at least a year on different routes originating from Taipei. [...]

Passengers can also purchase limited edition duty-free products, such as Hello Kitty-shaped pasta, from flight attendants wearing Hello Kitty aprons.

Er... if I arrived at the gate and saw one of those planes sitting outside, I'd go right back to the next TSA officer and declare that I have a nuclear device in my underpants.

Really... there is a point where everything becomes too much.

Didn't I read about EVA having hello kitty jets about five years ago? Are these new or are they just using the planes on a new route?

I don't know how Hello Kitty is sold these days but when I was a kid Hello Kitty products were a special treat and NOT very known in the states (Yea, I'm THAT old) There was a little stand in the local stationary store filled with Hello Kitty items. Most of them tiny, fascinating and packaged with efficiency and tidiness(a price was always found in the top corner and put there by Sanrio). It was mostly the tiny aspect that I loved. I bought tiny colored pencils, with tiny erasers and sticker books. There was a tiny gumball machine with tiny gum. The miniature aspect was the best for me. Finding Sanrio products was tricky back then, and you could only find them in specialty toy shops and stationary stores.

These days Hello Kitty is everywhere...and I'm an adult so I'm not allowed to like that stuff anymore (even though its from MY childhood). Part of me is happy Hello Kitty went on to be such a huge success... part of me is annoyed that its freakin' everywhere now.
