The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck rolled into Seattle, WA for the first time on Saturday, 11-14-15. This is the first time the truck has made an appearance in the Seattle area though they have previously visited Portland. Their whirlwind 2-day stop gave fans a chance to check out their yummy macaroons, mini cakes, cookies, bow-shaped water bottles, and other goodies infused with unique and cute Hello Kitty details to delight fans of all ages.
I pulled on my boots and scarf and braved the windy and wet Seattle weather to take a taste of the sweets myself. What Hello Kitty fan could pass up the chance? I was rewarded with a bit of my childhood served on a paper napkin – a sweet reminder of all that Hello Kitty means to me. The adorable pastries and baked goods are almost too cute to eat. They’re worth the wait in line and they’re a special treat your friends would love if you’re in the mood for sharing. Come early, the baked goods do sell out and you don’t want to be disappointed!
Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty at the EMP Museum
The Seattle stop coincided with the opening of the first large scale Hello Kitty museum exhibition, Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty, at the EMP Museum. This unique exhibition is an extensive retrospective featuring over 500 artifacts and rare pieces from Sanrio’s archives, as well as a selection of mixed media artwork that shows Hello Kitty’s influence on contemporary artists. The exhibition will stay in Seattle until May 15, 2016, before moving on.
Fans can shop the EMP Hello Kitty store online. You’ll find accessories, apparel, books, collectibles and memorabilia, music, and home decor items with prices ranging from $6 to $125. This special event is included in the EMP Museum admission fee and free for EMP Museum members. The event was created by the Japanese American national Museum in Los Angeles.
