Hello Kitty sander

The folks at Sanrio have achieved total Hello Kitty liftoff with this Hello Kitty Sander (unless it's a joke or a bootleg, in which case, it's time for Sanrio to copy the pirates and get into production). I don't have anything that needs sanding and I still want one.

Before the words were even completely out of my mouth, I knew I had guaranteed new depths of Hello Kitty Hell upon myself. Not only will my wife be looking for a Hello Kitty power sander, I’m sure I will also end up with a Hello Kitty tool set and Hello Kitty tool belt. My only hope is that I also receive a Hello Kitty nail gun (most likely with Hello Kitty nails included) that I can use to shoot nails into my head and put me out of my misery. It’s only a matter of time before they end up on our doorstep and Hello Kitty Hell takes on deeper and darker dimensions…

Update:: it's a racing power-tool! It comes from Global Cat-astrophe's Flickr stream. Well spotted, Meerkat!


  1. definitely not official merch.

    if i had to guess i’d say it was built for a sander race (yes, there is such a thing)

  2. The side roller gives it away as
    a mildly moded beltsander racer.
    (what you think, you race beltsanders down tracks, wire the triggers on, plug ’em in, flip the switch and watch ’em run)

    the beltsander race tracks are 8 inches wide and its best to
    put a spacer to keep your sander going down the track
    lest it leap out and sand someone’s face.

    and yes, the face sanding happens pretty often.

  3. Sorry to tell you MeerKat, but your Hello Kitty sander is neither the original Hello Kitty Sand nor the meanest.

    Original Hello Kitty Sander:

    Made by Divide and Jacqueline of HazardFactory.org for the 2007 Robodock Power Tool Races in Amsterdam.

    I guarantee that their racer was faster (due to being overclocked with 220volt amsterdam power) and meaner (hey! it’s on fire!). Personally, I’d like to see a duel.
