One of the odder combinations to come along in a while is
the KISS x Hello Kitty line of products.
An even odder combination may just be the recently announced plan for The
Hub Network to air a Gene Simmons produced Kiss Hello Kitty cartoon show.
The KISS x Hello Kitty line has been
around since 2010 and has done well with a largely adult market. That raises the question: Will children who watch My Little Pony and
the parents who watch them watch be drawn to a formerly sweet Hello Kitty now
wearing leather and studs and sticking out her tongue?
I visited the Hello Kitty website store to
see what types KISS x Hello Kitty products were being sold. What I found was that everything on the page
came in adult sizes with some pretty nice
price tags ($65.00 for a KISS x
Hello Kitty Tote Bag). So, it appears, that at least until now the KISS x
Hello Kitty strategy has been targeted at adults rather than kids.
