    #TBT Purrfection: Hello Kitty + Winky&Dutch circa 2002

    Hello Kitty!

    Here Kitty Kitty!

    Come on kitty kitty kitty, be a good kitty, come on.

    So went the cries of every retailer everywhere. It was early in the aughts and there seemed to be an unquenchable thirst for Hello Kitty. The Sanrio Hello Kitty Brand may have seemed like a mass product, but Hello Kitty didn't just jump into the licensing sandbox with just anyone.  Luckily, Winky&Dutch with their charm & tenacity acquired an official license to carry Hello Kitty within the Winky&Dutch product assortment.

     There was no end to where Hello Kitty could go or what Hello Kitty could do in combination with the Winky&Dutch classic accessories.
