Largest Hello Kitty And Sanrio exhibition in Kuala Lumpur

If you don't know, I am a very HUGE fan of Hello Kitty! It's my favourite childhood character of all times =) Ever since young, I don't know why but I am drawn to this cute cat character. My family would buy me Hello Kitty merchandises and for the longest time I had a Hello Kitty doll on my bed (a gift from my auntie) until I shifted house.

Knowing that Hello Kitty and her friends are coming to Malaysia, can you imagine how excited I am!! *squealsss* So it will not only be Hello Kitty but also other cute characters from Sanrio. Founded in 1960, best known for global icon Hello Kitty, Sanrio offers a portfolio of more than 400 endearing characters. How well do you know about them? Each Sanrio member accompanies us along our life journey, symbolizing the wonderful memories of different generations.

The 1,500 sqm large exhibition features 13 Sanrio-themed zones where visitors can view and take photos of the 100 out of 400 adorable Sanrio characters in a variety of colourful settings, offering a visual experience like never before. Set to be the largest exhibition of its kind in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, the exhibition, spanning over seven weeks and falling on school holidays, Christmas and the New Year, will not only be an attraction to families and the little ones, but also to the young-at-heart as they relive their memories while capturing new ones.

 My excitement when I met my childhood fantasy!

There are 4 key highlights in ‘Our Sanrio Times’. First, the most delighting part is ‘Sanrio Village” whereby 100 selected characters will team up at the exhibition in Kuala Lumpur for the first time. Some characters will take a ride on the Sanrio train which is made to imitate Sanrio Gift Gate of Gotanda, Tokyo in 1970s. 

Second, the replica of the first merchandise created by Sanrio, Hello Kitty coin purse, will be first shown in Malaysia. All loyal fans will definitely be surprised with it! Third, with the full support of Sanrio Japan and Sanrio Hong Kong, over 300 vintage items will be displayed offering unprecedented visual experience. Last but not least, designers in charge of Sanrio Japan is especially invited to create exclusive hand sketch for 9 well-known Sanrio characters, teaching us how to draw the lovely Sanrio characters step by step. 

In addition to the 4 highlights above, the giant and adorable Hello Kitty plush in 3.5 m tall, is going to have her first encounter with fans! Apart from that, the exhibition includes various theme zones. For example, ‘Sanrio Time Tunnel’ leads us to have a quick review on all Sanrio classic characters over the past decades; ‘Paper Doll Fun’ recalls our childhood memory of ‘doll dressing up game’; ‘Vintage Stationery House” displays the Sanrio classic stationery; “Strawberry Newsroom” let all super fans read through the previous issues of Strawberry News which is a monthly magazine sharing Sanrio updates; “Strawberry Office” where you may find many secret of Strawberry King.
