I am not going to lie. I have been a Hello Kitty fan for a VERY long time, since I was a kid. I remember back then everything Hello Kitty was red & white. I adored her back then and even more so now. Hello Kitty has come a long way, and I love that Hello Kitty can come all colors and they even have the more "dark" Hello Kitty. I honestly think it's adorable!

Also, a different creator, Paul Frank. OMGosh! I absolutely adore that monkey! It reminds me so much of my daughter Kyria. We always call her monkey butt. She's always been our little monkey since she was born so naturally it has stuck with her. She is a HUGE Paul Frank fan, she adores that monkey!

I am not sure who has checked out SparkleBee by MALCC before, if you haven't and you love Hello Kitty and Paul Frank you're missing out! If you or your child are fans, you can find everything you're looking for, even the newest items.
