Hello Kitty is Back at Yogurtland This Summer!
She's back! Hello Kitty (and her friends) are returning to Yogurtland this summer for the second year in a row with special cups and spoons and other non-froyo merchandise.It was a big deal last year when Sanrio first teamed up with the frozen yogurt chain (yep, we squeeeeee-ed with delight) so we understand if you are a little giddy right now.
They've got new designs for the 2012 promo featuring the famous feline and her pals. Each character's cup will feature artwork set in a different city.
Here's the schedule for the roll-out of the characters:
- Hello Kitty: July 10 (Hollywood, CA)
- TuxedoSam: July 24 (Miami, FL)
- Little Twin Stars: Aug. 7 (San Francisco, CA)
- Badtz-Maru: Aug. 21 (Honolulu, HI)
Additionally, there will be a Hello Kitty plush dressed in a Yogurtland uniform, key chains, buttons, tote bags and money coin purse featuring all four characters for sale in the stores. Collectors, better hope your Hello Kitty piggy banks are full!
