“Hello Kitty has always believed ‘You can never have too many friends’ and we couldn’t be more excited for Pusheen to join her side,” says Craig Takiguchi, chief operating officer, Sanrio. “With both of our avid fanbases and the wide range of products designed for every occasion, these pop culture icons will encourage friends to come together and make even more everyday memories.”

“It’s a dream come true to collaborate with Hello Kitty!” says Claire Belton, creator, Pusheen. “It’s been so much fun to work together and see everything come to life. I grew up loving Hello Kitty, so it feels like coming full circle.”

The Hello Kitty x Pusheen collection will be available on Sep. 3 at, select Sanrio boutique stores, and while supplies last. The collection will also be available at select specialty retailers such as Hot Topic, Claire’s, FYE, Barnes & Noble and IT’SUGAR later this Fall.
