Hello Kitty Car License Plate Thingy

I’ve been avoiding writing about our car lately because, basically, it’s slowly becoming a Hello Kitty pimped out nightmare. It has gotten to the point where I don’t even bother locking it anymore because there is absolutely no way anyone in their right mind would ever consider stealing it. Now my wife is adding Hello Kitty themed things that must have been invented for the specific purpose of placing Hello Kitty on them because they don’t even have a name like these Hello Kitty car license plate thingies:

Hello Kitty license plate thingy

Your eyes don’t deceive you. These are Hello Kittified covers for the screws that hold on your license plate. You know that the evil feline has pretty much put her face on everything when Sanrio has to begin making up products just so they have more things to sell. It’s even worse when my wife starts to buy these things because the car has been so Hello Kittified that there is nothing else — another typical day living in Hello Kitty Hell…

  1. I think those are cute. Sanrio should make Mimmy version so that you can put a different one for each screw head making them symmetry. Sounds Hello Kitty hellish, doesn’t it?

  2. Sanrio doesn’t make up products. They make things that people want and all people want Hello Kitty. That is why it is on everything. Unlike you, most people love Hello Kitty and everything she represents. Just because you can’t stand that she is more popular than you and even though you try to make people hate her through lies and deception, you can never win because nobody agrees with you.

  3. I think now is the time to get out your hello kitty straight razor and slit your hk encrusted wrists, do they have hk straight razors, I must have them! Even better an hk scalpel!!!!!!!!!

  4. Okay, that is beyond useless. That is so far beyond useless it is not even funny. I just can’t belive that there are people out there who spend money on this crap!

  5. Darlene, you seriously need psychiatric help.

    >>Sanrio doesn’t make up products.

    No, their marketing department comes up with new things that haven’t had Hello Kitty stamped on them yet so they can sell them and make money.

    >They make things that people want and all people want Hello Kitty.

    *I* do NOT want Hello Kitty. Therefore all people cannot possibly want Hello Kitty.

    >>That is why it is on everything.

    Again, wrong. Hello Kitty is not (and never will be) on a plasma cutter or welding rig. Hello Kitty is not (and never will be) on anything in my house.

    >>Unlike you, most people love Hello Kitty and everything she represents.

    Again, wrong. Most people don’t give a damn about Hello Kitty. All Hello Kitty represents is corporate greed…..greed to take your money by putting something diabetically cute on pretty damn near anything in order for you to waste your money on it because you have a mental illness.

  6. Actually, Darlene, Sanrio doesn’t make products, period. I know this make come as a shock to you, but Sanrio is primarily a licensing company. That means that a company who makes a product contacts Sanrio, asks if they can put HK on it, and pays a fee to do it.

    I have never heard of license plate screw covers, myself. My wife does have nifty skull-shaped caps for the air pressure valves on her tires, though.

  7. Oh, Darlene. Keep writing your comments. You always make me laugh even more than the original post.

    By the way, this girl has no interest in adorning herself with that ridiculous “feline”. I like real cats a great deal more.

  8. You know.. this would be great. I’m tempted to get a set for the sole reason of applying them to my honey’s car covertly and waiting to see how long it takes him to notice. ^_^

  9. I NEED those for my Hello Kitty license plates. I searched and searched for something like that. Sanrio must have tapped into my thoughts. Now, I have to figure out where in the heck to get them.

  10. If you tell your wife that if by any chance someone bumps into your car the the HK screw covers will be scratched perhaps she will give up on putting them on the car…
    hey’ll be so much safer locked inside the glove compartment… Do you agree?

  11. > I can’t believe people actually SPEND MONEY on those kinds of stuff…

    I’m not defending this product. But I know people are spending MONEY on something much more useless. I don’t want to name them because I know people are going to disagree anyway …

  12. >I have never heard of license plate screw covers, myself. My wife does have nifty skull-shaped caps for the air pressure valves on her tires, though.<

    You can get Skull license plate bolts also. With the little red rhinestone eyes, just like the valve stem covers.

  13. Hiya! I’ve looked through pretty much your entire site- and I love it! I have to admit- my HK love was beginning to escalate to slightly frightening depths. Then I stumbled on your site and OH THE JOY! Although I still go ‘hmm…I’d LOVE a pair of hello kitty contacts they are the GREATEST THING EVER’ things such as banana covers and your commentary make me laugh so hard! I secretly think that a small part of you likes this HK-ness! …a very small almost minuscule part. yes, and your humour is first class! it always makes me crack up! and yes! you know the difference between mimmy and kitty!!
    you’re an awesome person! and your wife has inspired me to…hopefully one day start my own hello kitty business in Canada!

  14. I just found this blog and think it’s great (and I am a HK fan too, to an extent). I wish I had a picture to send, but I once saw a DJ use a HK accessory on a turntable arm. It was small and kinda cute.

  15. You can always knock them off and say they were stolen but I suppose its her temporary fix till she gets the hello kitty plates she wants… Sorry

  16. I love it – I have a Batz Maru plate frame and car accessory kit – would love to find the equiv of this in Batz too-

    Could those be simply magnets added to a car tag?

  17. At least they’re kind of subtle… I bet my bf wouldn’t mind me putting them on the car. Oh, and Zainab, I’m so with you on opening a HK business in Canada! There is like NOTHING here!

  18. I thing its kinda cute. I still can’t tell what’s been photoshoped though… About have the stuff on the site isn’t real.

  19. Serious question for Mr HKH. Are those screw covers (which is their real name I’m afraid; we have them in the UK, and that’s what they’re called: Well that or bolt covers) actually legal in Japan? They wouldn’t be legal here.

  20. Serious question for Mr HKH. Are those screw covers (which is their real name I’m afraid; we have them in the UK, and that’s what they’re called: Well that or bolt covers) actually legal in Japan? They wouldn’t be legal here.

    It’s not nice to give me a glimmer of hope that we may be pulled over, served a large fine and have those thingy’s confiscated…

  21. Nicola, why would it be legal to deliberately obscure or change your registration number? Wherever you are.

    Mr HKH, that wasn’t how it was meant. I meant that you could “do some research” and discover that they’re illegal on a road vehicle. I know just how silly Japanese “display only” cars can get!

  22. The number did not seem to be obscured to me at all. We can buy them in the states with skulls and all other sorts of things on them and they certainly seem far less offensive than those very dark tinted license plate covers that people use that are perfectly legal although you cannot see the numbers through them.

    Bad attitude aside, why would it be illegal?

  23. Not every country mounts license plates the same way. Most of Europe mount them using fixing screws through the middle of the plate. If the “Submit” button was a European plate, the screws would go between the S and u and the i and t, just below the cross stroke of the t, so it wouldn’t take much extra area to cover part of the mark, even though the letters are about 3 inches (75mm) high.

    Unless it’s a case of the law not keeping up with the products, I’m surprised that a black-out smoked tinted cover is legal in the US.

  24. i’m sure she has the hello kitty jumbo size rear view mirror and license plate boarder (from SANRIO). hence the only things i like about my car…oh and dont forget about the little white hello kitty sticker that goes on the rear window….hahahahahhaa

  25. Yea I know I looked there many times also, but one day I was browsing through hello kitty things on ebay and I FOUND IT!! Hope you get it before its all gone =]

  26. Isnt hello kitty illegal in japan… i have a friend thats japanese but he has informed me that if you bring hello kitty in japan they will lock you up… a long time ago the company use to hypnotise the people or something like that…
