Hello Kitty’s friends are here to visit you for the holidays! Sanrio expands its Build-A-Bear collection with holiday-themed clothes, colorful accessories, and three new plush friends. If your kids love Hello Kitty, then they’ll adore My Melody, Pompompurin, and Kuromi!

Pompompurin, the golden retriever, is featured with yellow fur and his signature brown beret. My Melody is a little bunny who fans will recognize as a friend who loves to bake cookies. The Kuromi plush features her signature black jester’s hat with a pink skull and the official Kuromi logo on her left paw.

Build-A-Bear’s existing collection of Sanrio products includes a Hello Kitty plush, a Cinnamonroll plush, a Hello Kitty and Friends Toy Bear Carrier, plus a variety of accessories and more. The plush clothing line features a mix of Sanrio characters and holiday motifs.

Build-A-Bear will continue to add more Sanrio characters to its offerings, including seasonal versions of Hello Kitty and a 50th anniversary edition in 2024.

The latest Sanrio additions are available for a limited time at Build-A-Bear stores and online. To learn more about the Hello Kitty and Friends Collection, visit buildabear.com.
