Info and Photos for the tokidoki for Hello Kitty II Line

Monday, December 8th, 2008

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.”


Also, here are photos of the items in the tokidoki for Hello Kitty II line, thanks to the Cute Kitty blog! There are a TON of photos, so be sure to click the “read the rest of this entry” link at the bottom of this post to see them all.

Onitsuka Tiger accidentally left them out of the boxes, but tokidoki let me know that they will be shipping a Tiger Toy to everyone that bought the shoes via the website at once.

The Hawaii tokidoki Bag Print Re-Release Plot Thickens
Ku`uipo let me know that the SAs at the LeSportsac store in Ala Moana re-confirmed that Spiaggia re-release is later this month. They also said that Famiglia will be re-released in July in limited bag styles, and Trasporto will be re-released in August. (Take this info with a grain of salt, since there are so many conflicting rumors about the re-releases out there right now!) The Ala Moana SAs also said that they will NOT be carrying the new line of 2008 tokidoki bags.
