Reader Veronica has done a whole bunch of research on the new tokidoki for Hello Kitty II line, and has all of this news to share with us:
“I spoke to Sales Associate Adrian at the San Francisco Sanrio store and they are expecting the new tokidoki for Hello Kitty Line in January. She couldn’t tell me exactly when since they are coming from Japan and if you remember the first tokidoki For Hello Kitty Line ran later than expected (there was a problem with the supplier). I also called the New York Times Square Store but they are more tight lipped about it, only saying they are expecting the line but offered few details as to time frame, items expected, etc. San Francisco did start a list of both phone numbers as well as e-mail addresses – they plan to send out a mass e-mail and text message when the line arrives in their store.
There will be no waiting list this time since there were many complaints from the general public saying it wasn’t fair to all. There will be no holds on the day of the release. However, they will take credit cards over the phone but you MUST be there by the closing of the store that day to sign and pick up of your merchandise. I also called Hawaii and they knew nothing in regards to the new line. They said that they haven’t heard anything from the home office in regards to the tokidoki For Hello Kitty line. I don’t know who will carry it in the Los Angeles area since Momoberry closed during the first tokidoki For Hello Kitty line. I tried calling JapanLA but they could not tell me much information. She did mention that they may carry the line but could not say what since the buyer was not in.”
