Reversible Hello Kitty Hamburger

Like I mentioned in the Blooming Flower post, I'm headed home with a suitcase full of dirty laundry and toys for my five year old. Another awesome score from this trip is the Hello Kitty Reversible 8" Plush: Hamburger, a plush Hello Kitty toy that inverts and forms a Hello Kitty hamburger. It's a thing, then it's another thing! (And there's a turkey version, too).

This thing is pretty spectacular in person. I bought it on recommendation of a nice sales clerk at Austin, TX's Toy Joy, where you can buy bats by the scoopful marvel at the Spider Duck.

If you're headed to SXSW, you should really get all your friends in a taxi and ride out to Toy Joy and then eat some of the spectacular barbecue at Ruby's BBQ, kitty-corner from the shop. It's pretty much the perfect outing, and at least as cool (if not cooler) than anything you'll actually see presented on the conference floor.


    1.  If you were going to be turned into hamburger, you’d probably want it that way. Seeing and feeling your body getting . . . well, you get the idea.

  1. I saw that in a sanrio store. I like how hello kitty is holding a hamburger, implying that it turns into another hello kitty holding a hamburger, which cascades to the end. Turtles all the way down, man.

    The turkey leg one is cuter, imho.

  2. “Do you like your toy? Now do you want to go to McDonald’s? No? I guess your deprogramming is complete.”

  3. That camera should have zoomed in closer, ‘cuz we can still figure out what’s going on…

  4. Ruby’s isn’t kitty corner, it’s simply across the street, past Milto’s.

  5. Will there be a My Little Pony/ My Little Pony Burger version available for European markets?

  6. Take your vegetarian friends along, too — Ruby’s has some awesome vegetarian options, including vegetarian chili (get a frito pie!) and jambalaya. Their black beans are pretty yummy, too. 

  7. Boing Boingers:
    Thanks so much for the great recommendation and flattering words. Sorry we’re not able to offer the Hello Kitty Hamburger Plush online. The Sanrio licensing rules are pretty strict (although we were able to get a Hello Kitty Stationary Subscription on our website). 

    If you’re coming to SXSW, or just in ATX, Lizzy, our owner and Head Toy Curator, is going to be leading a meetup Friday night on Toys for Techies:

    Hope to see you all there, or in the store while you’re in town!
