hello kitty cycling outfit

Postby jeff_o » Wed Jul 24, 2013 1:34 pm

Hi, I have a lady friend who recently got into cycling. she's a huge fan of hello kitty and I was thinking of buying her a hello kitty matching jersey and gloves to start with. I googled and ebay'd around but couldn't find any. Any leads will be greatly appreciated :)

Do you mean Vanderkitten by any chance?

In a past life I had dealings with Sanrio - they are hugely into stamping out counterfeit Hello Kitty goods... Or actually any goods that are unofficial 'Hello Kitty'.

If there isn't an official Hello Kitty cycling jersey or gloves made by Sanrio themselves then I have to say good luck. That's not to say that there isn't (you could always send Sanrio an email) but I do know Sanrio is very gung ho about stopping unofficial Hello Kitty goods from being sold.

I would suggest contacting Sanrio directly and asking whether they sell (or have licensed to someone else to sell) Hello Kitty for use on the jerseys and cycling gloves and ask who stocks them.

Interesting....they do "Manderkitten" kits now as well. Handy if I ever happen to run into Liz Hatch while out riding :-)

Christine Tham is the resident Hello Kitty merchandise expert, if I remember correctly. She probably doesn't come here any more after the abuse she copped on her Strava thread a while back. :(

Hi Jeff, i was on Ebay recently and have seen Hello Kitty jerseys, not sure about glove though. they have a pink one and a black one i think. i bought a snoopy jersey from them, took 3-4 weeks to arrive, but the price was good!
