Hello Kitty What?

Okay, I found the link—firecat had mentioned it in her journal a while back. sambear and goddessinga seemed dubious when I mentioned the existence of this thing.

Now, I didn’t read all that verbiage last time, but I remembered that it “talks” and moves its arms and head around. This time, though, I noticed this bit:
– Compatible for both Mac and PC computers – Easy installation with the software that comes along with this Hello Kitty Vibration Mascot. The motion and sound function can be turned on and off, so there is no need to worry about it start making noises while your are asleep or at work.

Hello Kitty Vibration Mascot? Does that mean what it seems to mean, or is this one of those woefully bad Japanese to English translations?

There really is a Hello Kitty Vibrator, and now I have to wonder—does it attach to a computer with a USB port? Because I don’t see that mentioned. I can just see a new fad, people sitting on their Hello Kitty Vibrators, hooked up through their Hello Kitty USB Hubs, posed in front of a Hello Kitty Webcam (because I’m sure there has to be one, though I haven’t seen or looked for one—hell, there’s a Hello Kitty Toaster Oven), and running some sort of software that lets random web visitors control the vibrator and view the results.

You know, the internet has seriously changed what I think of when I see Sanrio products. This is sorta disturbing, considering the fact that my stepkids are absolutely ga-ga over some of their characters. Come on—how many 14-year-old boys do you know of you’d choose the handle Pochacco first, over absolutely any other possibility in the world? And yes, G’s very favorite character is Hello Kitty, followed by Angel Kitty. I’m still unclear as to whether Angel Kitty is just a Hello Kitty line, or another cat altogether. Okay, I’m not going to win any stepmother of the year prizes, but then I already knew that.
