Tell the neighborhood cats to be on high alert because you just might see Hello Kitty dancing around outside your house!

Horizon Group USA added to the Chalk Alive collection with Hello Kitty Chalk Alive, a sidewalk art kit that uses augmented reality (AR) to animate drawings. The kit includes 12 colorful chalks, a mess-free chalk holder, and four 10-inch character stencils that kids can use to color the adorable Sanrio character right onto the sidewalk.

After kids complete their Hello Kitty art, they can scan it into the free Chalk Alive mobile app to watch their drawings come alive in 4D as an AR version of Hello Kitty jumps around and dances. Users can blow heart-shaped bubbles and watch them burst with confetti, dance with unicorn kitties, and capture star-filled balloons with the app, which is compatible with Android and iPhone devices.
