Hello Kitty, the cutest cartoon cat in the world and dream of millions of (mostly) Asian teenage girls, celebrates her 35th birthday soon. Reason enough for Sanrio, the Japan-based company behind Hello Kitty, and luxury brand Swarovski Crystal to produce a Hello Kitty figure of a very special kind.
The so-called Super Hello Kitty (great naming) weighs 569g and costs 15 million Yen or $152,000. The diamond-clad thing is currently being showcased at a watch and jewelry trade fair in Basel. So hurry to Switzerland if you own that kind of money and want to make your girlfriend really happy.
