You can never have too many friends and if there's one friend that you do need, I would suggest making Hello Kitty that special friend. I am a HUGE Hello Kitty fan. My big sister got me hooked onto Hello Kitty and whenever we go shopping and there are Hello Kitty products to be found, believe me I want to get them. So imagine my joy when I found out that Build-A-Bear Workshop was having the 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty in stores, and even better were that they were going to send me my very own. I don't think that there was anyone happier than me that day. If you don't know by now I am also a HUGE Build-A-Bear Workshop fan and got my very first bear when I was only a few weeks old. Mommy is even a bigger fan than I am and have been collecting their friends for over 12 years. She even has a few collectibles from outside of the country that are no longer available. She was obsessed but now the obsession has waned and it's now my turn.


This 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty is a pleasure to behold. Think party! She is 18 inches tall and has the softest white confetti fur. Yes her fur isn't just white but has a colorful confetti pattern throughout. She comes with her signature bow that is pink and also sprinkled with confetti.


You can personalize your 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty with her very own 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty Dress. The dress features a Hello Kitty print on the skirt with a ruffled detail and the sleeves highlight the confetti design that is synonymous with her fur. One of the features that I love about Build-A-Bear friends is the fact that they can be personalized just the way you want. Show some pizzazz and your own unique style.


To complete the look you can grab a pair of Fuchsia Sparkle Ballet Flats that truly accents both the dress and Hello Kitty.


If you don't want to do that, then that's fine as well because this special 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty feet doesn't have to be hidden. They were actually made to be displayed. It features once again the confetti print that this edition is famous for and the 40th Anniversary sign.


You are going to love the 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty from Build-A-Bear Workshop whether you're a fan or not. I know I am and I am not letting go of this one. She is definitely a true collectible. After all your 40th anniversary only comes along once in life time. Hello Kitty and I will be having lots of fun together now and in the future.  She is already celebrating Fall with me. Thank you Build-A-Bear Workshop for making her because she certainly gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
