One of the activities I undertake each year is collect toys for a local orphanage in Japan. While the orphanages here are pretty well run compared to other places in the world, there isn’t a whole lot of extra money for toys for the kids. So every year I go around and collect small toys such as bottle cap figures, key chains, phone straps and plush (stuffed animals) for the boys and girls.
In one of our recent discussions about this blog (my wife has learned to ignore it to a great extent, but when she does visit, I usually get an earful…) this past weekend, my wife commented that it’s always the same people who comment on this blog which means it’s only the same people who read this blog all the time. I argued that while there are a core group that tend to comment quite a bit, there are a lot of readers that just read and never comment (I should have added, “because everything is so ridiculous that it makes them speechless” but I was already treading on this ice of being sent to the couch in the Hello Kitty sleeping bag).
She gave me one of those laughs like “nice try, but I won’t believe it till I see it.” So I challenged that if I can get 1000 different people to comment on a post, would she be willing to donate some of her Hello Kitty stuff to the orphans? She agreed, but also stipulated that if I fail to reach 1000, I have to take her on a Hello Kitty trip this August and I’m not allowed to complain at all (that certainly would be nothing short of Hello Kitty Hell…)
So here’s the deal. For every 5 new people that comment (if it’s to say something bad about Hello Kitty, all the better, but even if it is something positive, I will forgive you since it’s for a good cause) my wife said that she will donate a Hello Kitty toy to the toy drive (even if if the total doesn’t reach 1000). 100 comments means 20 toys, 500 comments means 100 toys and 1000 comments means 200 toys. With your help, I have the opportunity to rid our house of 200 Hello Kitty items that will go to a good cause and my wife won’t even be able to complain about it. How great would that be?
Since I don’t want me wife accusing me of cheating, please don’t make multiple comments under different names (it’s too easy for her to figure it out). If you have never commented before, this is your chance to say something and help out a great cause. Please also take a few moments to spread the word and tell your friends. The thread needs 1000 comments from different people to donate the maximum number of toys — that’s less than half the current rss feed readers. Not only will I be deeply grateful in getting 200 products of the evil feline out of this house, it’s not often that you can bring a smile to the face of a child by simply leaving a short comment. Thank you in advance for all those that are willing to help.
Update: “Wow” is all I can say. When my wife and I made the deal, I had to reach 1000 comments before the end of the month. It took just over 2 days to accomplish it with all of your help. While I did find the number of Hello Kitty fanatics that read this blog a bit disturbing, I’ll suppress that horror knowing that this house will have 200 less Hello Kitty products crowded inside in the weeks to come and that there is no need to go on a Hello Kitty vacation this summer! That is certainly a great relief and something to celebrate!
Of course, I will photo document all the items with the evil feline that leave this house with great joy and pleasure as we pack them up and deliver them. Those will appear in future update posts about it. This is probably the biggest victory ever in Hello Kitty Hell and is certainly something that I could get used to!
Feel free to keep commenting. I’m not sure what the comments above 1000 will mean at this very moment, but I’ll figure out how to make those above 1000 help out as well for all those that took the time to stop by and help a good cause.
I’d just like to take another moment to thank everyone that took the time to comment to help out the kids. It’s very much appreciated.

Let’s get those toys rolling out.
OK, good sir…
Before you have to suffer the horrible pain of Puroland et al, I do comment here!
Your blog is great btw – as is HK…
I have a ‘small’ liking for the hellish Kitty….reading this blog goes some way to stop me allowing it to take over…..thanks for the grounding advice and for continually exposing the truth about the freaky feline…
Comment #2. Come on people, it’s for a good cause…
Do it for the kids!
Am I the first one?
Hello, I’m Francesca from Italy, this is the first time I post a comment, but I’ve been reading Hello Kitty Hell for a while now.
I’m all about this, and I’m so happy that your wife is willing to go along with it. I adore both hello kitty AND this blog, and I think it would be amazing for 200 kids to get a little bit of hello kitty happiness in their lives 🙂
First time posting/long time reader
I read the blog for the amusement of your everyday HK Hell life. I’ve got a gf and a cousin that are addicted to HK but not as bad as some of the things that I’ve see here. Anyways… I hope that you reach the goal of 1000 comments as it is a very good cause (and to also show your wife how many people actually keep up with this website – HK fan or Non HK fan). Anyways… keep up the good work… I think…
i lurk all the time
i have never commented before, and i suspect the blog owner secretly loves hello kitty.
A quick check shows that there are 499 subscribes to this feed via Google Reader alone. Me delurking leaves 498 of them.
I am a huge Hello Kitty fan and my husband lives in Hello Kitty Hell, too. All I have to say about the donated toys is “pics or it didn’t happen!”
Teasing. Tell your wife I admire her sacrifice. I also salute you, too for being so supportive of her Hello Kitty collection. Some people would argue that making a website complaining about being in Hello Kitty Hell is not at all supportive, but since you haven’t really denied her any Hello Kitty items, it can’t be that bad for her. 😉
The obligatory Simpson’s quote:
Please – won’t somebody think of the children?!?!
Good luck avoiding HK holiday!
Hey, I read you blog…but never comment ^^;
So keep the toys rolling xD
i think even if you get all the comments you need you should still take her on a hello kitty trip:)
Just trying to save you from the Hello Kitty trip. I can’t even imagine the horror.
I never comment, but this is for orphans, so yay. 🙂
I think it’s appropriate that we leave 999 comments so that the children get the Hello Kitty toys and he has to take his wife on a trip for all that she has to put up with living with him and this blog.
Hey! I like to read this site, and I like for Kids to have toys!
To help the kids out with toys [read save you] I’ll comment.
I’m always willing to help out kids when I can.
Little orphans is a great reason to comment.
Lets get those toys outta the bathroom and into the kids hands. Try telling her she’s helping spread the good word of HK by donating some of her goods to the kids.
never comented before but always read.
Well, I can’t deny a guy the chance to make hell a little less hellish, and if that further means kids in need end up getting toys, then I’m all for that. Good luck!
For the children! I’m gonna try and make my friend comment later today!
Good luck Mr. Hello Kitty Hell!!!
I started reading this blog after searching for the word “tattoo” in google images and I think the Hello Kitty tattoo on a dog came up. I’m asian and was part of mini Sanrio craze in middle school, but I actually until I read this had no idea that people were so Hello Kitty cultish. And I thought Pokemon was bad.
Anyway hello! Children are allowed to like Hello Kitty so send them toys!
What a fantastic idea! Good luck!
Hello! Long time lurker, first time commenter – emerging from lurkdom for a good cause. Good luck! >^..^<
I only comment rarely, but this is certainly in a good cause. Glad to put my .1% in.
> One of the activities I undertake each year is collect toys for a local orphanage in Japan.
Kudos, Mr. HKH.
Include me in.
Hello Kitty has inspired some good fan art, and led (through this site) to me making 2 new friends.
I make that 1 post, saying 2 positive things about Hello Kitty. Total Count when I came on, 28 comments.
After I read my e-mail and online news every morning, I turn to Hello Kitty Hell for my morning “comics”!
never commented before but I read your blog every day!
I never commented before, but for the sake of little children and making your house a little more liveable, I couldn’t resist.
You should still take her on that trip though.
I must admit I’m rather fond of Hello Kitty (and kittehs in general), but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Let’s share the Hello Kitty love with the wee folk and get those toys moving!
Sounds good to me.
I don’t hate Hello Kitty, but I never really did understand it.
New comment! 🙂
I love this blog!
For the cause of making some children happy! =)
I enjoy reading your blog… although I like Hello Kitty.
Keep it up!
long time reader, first time commenter! i LOVE hello kitty, been to japan twice and leave at least a quarter of my suitcase free to bring back HK goods. i have HK toilet paper in my bathroom NO ONE is allowed to use. i love this blog, i read every post via google reader, but i never comment, not because i don’t love the writing and the blog, but mostly because i’m LAZY. KEEP IT UP!
Wow. She’s willing to donate toys and you get less crap in the house with an affirmation that people read this site. Also, orphans get toys.
A totally mutually beneficial situation.
Just include that horrible ukelele and the bag so she can’t send you to her version of the doghouse.
I’m yet another person “lurking” with an rss reader… good luck, hope you “get rid of” / donate the 200!
I’m glad to help make Hello Kitty a little less Kitty-ish. I live in Taiwan, which is too kittyized too.
I read this blog each day, but have never commented. I really enjoy it, and this this is a good cause!
I am another one of your never commenting readers, but this time I do. Hope it does some good 🙂
Greetings from Germany,
I have your blog in my rss reader. I’m a hello kitty fan, but I find 99% of the things you blog about absolutely ridiculous and reading your blog makes me laugh. a lot.
Good luck, dude!
Ello! While looking for contacts I found the hello kitty contacts. (which I want) I was very entertained by the site and have been a frequent lurker ever since. Anyways this is also my first comment, I hope it makes up for me not taking out the trash. Roll out the toys! ^^
Here’s to your 1,000 comments! My daughter has filled my home with Hello Kitty items. Now I dry my hair every day with a hello kitty hair dryer and make waffles on Sundays with a hello kitty waffle maker! Your not the only one in Hello Kitty hell!
What a totally awesome way to comment whore! 😉
Longtime lurker, first time commenter.
Hopefully your wife won’t buy you that hideous motorcycle leather outfit.
I love Hello Kitty and I think your site is very fun. Best of luck with all those toys and sweet kids!
kitty for the orphans!
Toys for tots, internet version 0.0001.
Read it but never comment, til you bribed me. Would have been better had you offered to get rid of the hello kitty stuff and match it with real nice toys. But, I digress.
I read “Hello Kitty Hell” blog every time I blog (usually several times a week).
i thought you were selling her hello kitty stuff through this post! 🙁
I hope there will be 1000 comments! Good luck!
Another longtime lurker, first time comment-er. I have a love/hate relationship with Hello Kitty– I like certain things, but hate all the crazy weird things that have Hello Kitty attached to it. I sold most of my Hello Kitty things but I admit I do have one last Hello Kitty keychain left that I can’t seem to part with…
another long time silent reader. Thanks for the amusement and helping the work day pass by faster. Think what you guys are doing for the kids is great.
Here is a comment from the lurker!
As someone who once purged her Hello Kitty collection, your wife CAN do it. Good luck!
Of course i be more then happy to comply!
The chance for you to get rid of a few hundred evil items sounds great!!
If you want, i can place a banner on my websites as well as make a blog-article about your good cause, that way pointing people to this site and especially this article.
Just say the word 😀
Hell-o, Hell-o, Hell-o
I applaud your generous nature and your wife’s cunning “sacrifice”. Yes, that’s sarcasm quotes. You are married to one smart cookie.
Because, unless you included a stipulation forbidding it, she will now have room for 200 NEW Hello Kitty items.
Lurking, but saying “hello” for the kids
yeah I love your blog and I also think HK is evil
Good luck in reaching 1,000!
Although you would have much more material for this blog if you went on that trip to hell… [snickers :P]
I’m not for or against hello kitty, but I subscribe to the RSS feed because it’s really crazy what hello kitty can appear on. Americans would be so up in arms if disney characters were made into vibrators.
Hi, and good luck with this!!!!
I LOVE this site. I am a huge HK fan and love to learn about HK facts and toys, etc that are posted here. I am sorry that you don’t enjoy HK as much as your wife. My husband is very supportive of my habit but I don’t indulge too much.
Ironically, we have several kitties that are like the HK characters, so I live HK every day. Our flamepoint Siamese looks JUST like HK. Napolean is a burmese who looks like Chococat. And our sphynx is just like Nyago.
So, tell your wife that if she were a true fan, she would have a HK cat herself!
She should do that instead of the trip. Memories made every day….
let’s do it!
I always kind of thought you made up the devotion your wife has to hello kitty and it was just a good story to use to make a good blog. If you really do live in a house full of hello kitty stuff I am sorry for you. However I do love hello kitty and just yesterday was stoked to find a bag of hello kitty candy at my local market in Alabama.
I’m slow to get on the post…
Get those toys for the orphans!!!!!!!!
Fantastic blog. It’s ridiculous how many things are out there with theevil feline on it. Good luck on your commenting!
My first comment!
I’ve Kitty Hell’s rss added to my feed reader so I can’t comment usually :/
Your idea is great, glad to help!
Keep posting awesome HK stuff!! ^^
Of course, Hello Kitty being such a great thing for your wife she should want for the orphans to enjoy them HK too?
Here, kitty kitty kitty………………..
Not a new commenter here, but every little bit helps, no? 😉
Hope this helps with the toy-drive!
Kitty power rules!!!!
I’m a Hello Kitty addict and even I think that some people go WAY too far. I still want to stay at that Taiwan hotel though..
While I’m a HK fan, I wouldn’t wish a HK vacation on anyone who doesn’t fully enjoy HK……good luck with the 1000 comments!
You guys are too funny, I really hope your wife is not this hated darlene!
This a great diversion at work (though sometimes I laugh a little too loud and get looked at funny).
i’m also one of those that checks this site almost daily except i dont post much. i absolutely love hello kitty and i find your blog hilarious!! and this comment is for a good cause so i’d thought i’d jump in to say hello to everyone 🙂
This is my first comment! I like Hello Kitty but would hate to live in Hello Kitty Hell.
I got extremely turned off by hello kitty when I paid $11 for a frckn pen that ran out of ink after ONE SENTENCE. The smarties and the Sanrio store don’t do refunds. T_T
Nevertheless, I find some of the school supplies adorable! 😀
Hope this helps!
More Kitty toys for tots! (Okay, okay, that’s tantamount to saying Hello Crack, but whatever.)
….How many Hello Kitty toys does she have?!
Like your wife, I am a Hello Kitty Collector. However, I agreed with my husband that I would contain it to one room of the house. I don’t think I have nearly as much stuff as your wife.
I will admit some of the things that people come up with to put Hello Kitty on, are pretty ridiculous!
Hello from Barcelona!!! Here we also have some hello kitty shops… buy they are almost allways empty!!!
I use to read your blog often and its incredible that lot of diferent Hello kitty stuff… And so much people with tatoos!!!
Long time lurker emerging from Lurkdom FOR THE CHILDREN.
Wow, this may be for a good cause, but it might just make the poor kids worse off. Not only are their parents dead, but all they have for comfort is Hello Kitty? Ow.
toys for orphans and happiness for you everybody wins!
What a generous idea! Maybe I should donate some of my hello kitty crap (I mean collectibles) to a good cause. Hmmmm….
I’ve commented a few times, I’ll help with this^^ Good luck!!
For a toy drive why not. I feel you pain, it started as a joke but now I get tons of hello kitty presents evey year. Atleast this way you get to do good while you share the pain.
I hope that you make it, and can be alleviated of some of the hell you live with. Good luck!
Toys for orphans? Works for me. I read this pretty regularly, but was too busy laughing to comment before now.
I’m one who reads but has never posted until now. Good lick with the toy drive.
those poor orphans.. but at least they get toys. and i so hope you make it to 1000 comments, a hello kitty trip is just too cruel.
I am subscribed to the RSS feed. I’ve never commented before!
Hello! I think this is a great opportunity for you to buy your wife even MORE Hello Kitty stuff to replace whatever she gives to the orphans! ^_^ Good luck!
Hi. In response to your wife, I check Hello Kitty hell every Sunday. It’s part of my routine, but I rarely comment because alot of times, I’m left speechless. This, however, is a very good cause. I wish you luck with this and hope for your sake you don’t have to go on the trip, or for that matter, the sleeping bag. Hope everything goes as you planned!
I usually just lurk and laugh, but here´s my comment for your toydrive
I found this blog a couple weeks ago, never commented before this.
Evicting that evil feline from your house is a good cause, and doubly so if it’s to donate to kids. I wish you the best of luck!
i like that you’re giving stuff to an orphanage. i have tons of adopted friends and cousins!
Everyone seems to win in this situation–you get rid of a few HK items, the kids get toys. Good luck. And if things don’t work out, I’ll gladly go on the trip with Mrs. HKHell.
first time poster. Good luck with the toy drive
I read this everyday. Love this site.. even though I do like hello kitty.. this amuses me! 🙂
I’ve been reading your blog for ages, never commented though til now 🙂
I have been reading your site for a while now but I can’t remember commenting before. The extent that the feline has spread amuses me since I don’t have to deal with it on a daily basis. I cannot imagine what its like living with a Hello Kitty fanatic…
Good luck reaching 1k.
Man, you agreed to an arrangement that might end in you taking the Hello Kitty Vacation? You should have gotten a better deal than giving away 200 items, because that will just be an excuse to replace them with 400 new items…
I read this via RSS feed so I don’t even think about commenting. So sorry. And I gain such joy from your misery…er, I mean blog. I can’t imagine you being forced to go on a Hello Kitty trip—no one’s karma could be that bad. Tell your wife needs to stop stalling and start thinning the Kitty herd—the orphans are as good an excuse as any.
I don’t believe I’ve ever commented – I’m always just stunned at what you find. I’m concerned though, that donating Hello Kitty toys to orphans will get them hooked on her. Maybe not.
it is a good cause so I decided to comment. My boyfriend hates how much I love hello kitty and he goes to this website often to show me crazy hello kitty crap as he says. I decided it’s not a bad website and join in the fun. Hello kitty rock and I think u love it as much as ur wife does.
Take your wife on the shopping trip anyway 🙂
hehe, for once darlene has a short comment that doesn’t say anything mean to you, and actually goes along with what you wrote XD
hope you get to 1000!
At least it’s for a good cause, right? I hope she has a change of heart and decides to donate 400 toys… cause I’m certain she has more than enough.
Good luck Mr. HKH!!!
one comment more, hope you don’t have to take that vacation, good luck
Oh gracious. I’m also a loyal reader through RSS, and rarely comment on blogs for people I don’t know in real life. But if it helps you get out of Hello Kitty hell, even a little bit, I’m happy to comment.
To you wife: Send your Hello Kitty toys to a country that appreciates it. Send it ALL to Japan’s kids, and give your darling husband a break.
I’m subscribed to the RSS feed, so I read every post but have never commented. Sorry about that… Let’s get those toys to those kids!
I subscribe to you in my google reader and have never commented. My girlfriend is obsessed with hello kitty so it’s nice to see someone going through what I go through.
I love HK, but have the good sense to understand that I don’t have the space for a large collection and my husband does not share my enthusiasm. I keep my collection to things I can use, like my microwave, toaster, toaster oven, juicer and coffee maker. Other things – like purses, dolls, and shoe charms – are gifts, so I can’t say no. I am allowed one bookcase to store those gifts in. If they don’t fit I have to give them away or sell them. To be fair, the same rules apply to my husband and his collection of video game figurines. This website is fun to visit, and I wish I could see all of the interesting HK things in person, but know owning them would spoil the fun.
Although I own HK jello molds, I don’t really understand Hello Kitty fanaticism. Is it acquiring Hello Kitty items that gives the rush, or owning them? If it’s the former, maybe this could be a new tradition for you and your wife: She can buy all the HK stuff she wants, then you donate it to the orphanage. Really, Hello Kitty is primarily for children (sex toys excluded; their made by contractors, not Sanrio itself), and an adult hoarding children’s toys while real kids do without is a little Scrooge-ish.
P.S. The jello molds are perfect for both the HK fan and detractor. On one hand, they’re so cute! On the other, you get to gouge at her slimy head with a spoon!
Yay! Share the HK love, donate more. It makes room for all the new HK releases 😀
It’s been a little while since I’ve left a comment, but I visit every day.
I think you should up the ante a bit. If you reach your goal of 1,000 (and there’s little doubt in my mind that you will), that you give your wife a second chance for a HK vacation IF she doubles her donation (and you retain the right to complain without retribution).
And oh yeah…kudos for using your blog for such a great cause!
I’m glad that you’ll be getting rid of HK items, though I feel sorry for the kids who get them. 🙂 But I’m sure your wife will quickly replace the toys with new HK items.
One more small step for the kiddies.
I expect a post showing all the stuff you manage to clear out as a result of these comments!
Time for a toy roll-out!
I read whenever my feed reader yells there is a new post. I rarely, if ever, comment. Hmm maybe never…
I read and never comment. But I am, indeed, speechless at most of the items. Good luck, and hurray for charity.
Donating toys to orphans and a little less hello kitty stuff in your house? Awesome.
I like HK, but your blog still cracks me up
Normally, I just stare with horrid fascination at all the items that show up on this blog. This is a good cause, so I post.
Have you thought about fighting merch with merch? You could start filling up the house with Harley-Davidson merch, and then your wife could have a blog titled “Harley-Davidson Hell”, and we’d all laugh.
love the website
me too i just read & laugh a lot event if I am a *moderate* HK fan!
good luck with your quest!
Long-time reader, first time commenter! All for a good cause. 🙂
No one should be subjected to a Hello Kitty holiday against their will.
I’ve been checking this site almost every day for the last six months or so, after my sister pointed me to it. I have never commented, but if ever there was a time… 🙂 I hope you reach the thousand comments, not only so that you don’t have to go on the HK vacation, but also so that the children get all the toys.
Good luck getting rid of the evil cat!
okay I’ll bite – but only because you posted the leathers. any help i can get in tormenting my racing buddies is welcome. just don’t tell them where i get those frightening pix!
Donating toys is great!
I visit this blog all the time but I’ve never commented. Um, I have now though..
I read your blog LOADS I don’t mind hello kitty too much, but the items that you somehow find yourself plauged with do tend to leave me speechless and I really hope that you can alleviate the hello kittyness of your home and life.
So here’s the first (and most likely last) comment you’ll hear from me for the orphanage!! WOO! LETS GET A THOUSAND COMMENTS!
And hope to GOD that you don’t have to go on that trip!!
Hello! Long time lurker, never a commenter. Bravo to your toy drive – I wish you much success!
awesome page! donate more hello kitty toys to young kids to spread the word and rid yourself of her at the same time!
Oooo, the gauntlet is down! Let’s get rid of some of those toys 😀
I never commented here only did sometimes read the comments from other people and did enjoy them. My trip to japan did show me show to much of that kitty stuff and it was hard to not ask for a hello kitty flamthrower like the space balls flame thrower. But for helping a good cause i will post here a comment even if dont like hello kitty. 🙂
Comment nº133:Good Luck!
Hrm, I tend to collect a fair few number of HK items (it’s fantastic to own something you know won’t be mysteriously “borrowed” and returned broken if ever), I do think this donation idea is a really good thing. Hope you reach your goal soon!
Man, moderation in all things, ESPECIALLY the cute! Hello Kitties, goodbye 🙂
Not sure if I count as a “new” commentator since I’ve left two or three comments here and there, but I figure it can’t hurt. Best of luck getting the toys out there.
I’m a part-time lurker – love the website, and a bit of HK here and there is ok.
Great cause, so cheers to your wife – hope you get the max number of comments!!
Good luck reaching your goal! It’s such a good cause, donating toys and slightly fractioning your own personal hell. Sounds like everyone wins to me.
Sounds like wins all round. I drive a black Honda CR-V with a cuddly Hello Kitty hanging from the rear view mirror, so you probably don’t want to hear from me again…
I normally check your website about every other day. I used to be an advid hello kitty collector but kinda grew out of it. Since then Hello Kitty is EVERYWHERE. So I like to check out what you have new listed every now and then. I don’t comment cuz well I guess like you said i’m speechless. LoL Good luck!
Heh – it’s nice that one my comments might actually help for once. 😉
This counts as a comment! Go Kitty GO!
All for a good cause.
I think donating to charity is a wonderful idea.
I have been a consistent visitor to this site for quite some time. I enjoy looking at all of the Hello Kitty items, and find that they run the spectrum from useless yet cute to completely ridiculous. I also understand that it is natural for men to avoid being near Hello Kitty items. For example, I will never forget the look of terror and disgust on my male colleague’s face when no other pen was available and he was forced to use my Hello Kitty pen. Good luck reaching 1000 comments!
Hello, I’ve been reading your blog for some time, but never felt the need to comment till now. Unfortunately I’m one of the people who wishes you would let us know where to get the HK stuff. Funny enough I still probably wouldn’t buy it. It’s enough to let me know it’s really there if I should decide to buy it. However, my love of not wasting money extends pass my love of Hello Kitty. Good luck with the toy drive.
I’m one of the quiet readers subscribed to the rss feed. 🙂
let’s save you from a trip from hell, plus get rid of some of that creepy kitty stuff for charity
(i just found this website, and it gave me a good laugh, as well as freaked me out a good deal… hello kitty GUNS?!?!?!)
I feel that it is my duty in the name of all things masculine to help you strike back at the malevolent hello kitty!
When we were kids we’d buy any sort of crap just because they had our favourite cartoon character on. But then we grew up and realised that this was essentially preying on the weak.
I read your blog because I’m not only fascinated that such crap exists, but also that there is also a market for it. Basically car crash TV.
I feel for you man. I’m currently holding an armistice between my Gundam models and my wife’s Teddy Bears.
I’m sure the kids will love the hello kitty gadgets! let’s spread the hello kitty mania among new generations!
Good luck in your quest, man. I hope that you succeed with this!
I love HK! Share the love with the orphanage. 🙂
Start packing them up!
Dear Mr. HKH,
I really hope enough people comment, it would be so amazing to give those kids so much happiness with some lovely Hello Kitty Goods 😉 I have read your blog for a loooong time, but never commented! I love the way you write, and I feel very sorry for you, living in HKH and all. Good luck 🙂 x
I wanna help! I hope you reach your goal!
I read this blog every day, but I never comment “because I am speechless”… FROM LAUGHTER
Go free toys! 🙂
Is it really a good idea to be giving these kids Hello Kitty toys. Well I guess it’s better then nothing.
Give the poor orphans their Hello Kitty. Just remember “Give a little Hello Kitty and it all comes back to you”!
I think that is a beautiful and noble thing your wife is doing. You should be proud of her sacrifice. Take her to see something beautiful and feed her.
I see every day your site but I never wrote a comment. My boyfriend is your fan and wants to meet you to shake your hand…he like very much your anti Kitty site.
I think that I and my boyfriend are the Italian copy of you and your wife!
Let’s give HK stuffs to the children!!!
I love hello kitty but i also love your blog! I always just read it but for a great cause decided to write! Good Luck!
Let’s see such an overwhelming amount of posts that th esleeping bag gets
Good luck on your cause. You site is not unknown in the Furry Community and I will direct to this site.
Sill I hope we only get 990 so you can go on a nice vacation. Who knows, perhaps Sanrio can arrange a special tour and spring a ticket on the Hello Kitty Jet. Furthermore your wife need go further on the bet, you must hug hello kitty and a picture with every charter and post the picture here. (welcome to uber hello kitty hell)
I only came across your blog a few days ago, and I absolutely love it. So here’s a comment to help you out ;D
I’m sending it to friends too to help you out. Good luck!!
Let’s see such an overwhelming amount of posts that the sleeping bag gets donated too.
HKH is always a giggle… but I hafta admit I quite like the lil’ critter myself. 🙂
If she wants to donate that hello kitty sewing machine to me, I’ll donate 100 of my hello kitty things to the children. 🙂
Hello, I’m pretty new to the Blog having stumbled on it a few weeks ago. Luckily enough for me, though my wife DOES love Hello Kitty, she doesn’t have many Hello Kitty items. Here here to donating hell!
Wel, hopefully those kids like hello kitty. Because they will get tons of it!
I LOOOOVE this site, it always gives me a good laugh.
Good luck getting more comments.
Hello Kitty = thumbs in eyes.
hope ya hit that 1000.
cool way to help some kids ;D and to show how many people read this blog^^
Im a little bit late… but here’s my little grain of sand…
I always read the site, but this is my first time commenting.
I read this blog and never commented. :O Mainly because lots of this stuff scares the crap out of me.
Glad to help one partially banish the cat-demon. 😛
I’ve been reading for quite a while and have sent the site to a number of my friends. We still don’t get it though….these are adults that are buying all this junk? I mean, honestly, adults? i’d have thought most people would have grown out of this by the time there were teenagers! My sympathies on your plight!
I love Hello Kitty THIS MUCH!!!
(/em hold arms wide open)
I’m just a ‘core’ user, but Hello Kitty is both good and bad. Bad in excess, good if used to make someone happy…
Good luck with this, mate. I have to admit that I kinda like Hello Kitty stuff, but your wife has taken this thing to another universe. My sympathies, honestly.
Here’s hoping that you can get those 200 Hello Kitties out of your house 🙂
Here’s your comment. I hope your wife will donate the toys anyways even if you don’t reach 1000. Think of the children!
hey! i got the subscription thing to this page..
i started looking at it to see all of the cool hello kity stuff and loved it..
ive never commented but its for a good cause
hope u win the bet
New poster, long-time reader. Really enjoy the site, and enjoy even more the prospect of some orphanage kids in Japan receiving the HKH items for the holidays!! Good luck *^_^*
Delurking for a good cause.
I follow this blog daily. I am so glad I am not married to a woman who is obsessed with Hello Kitty like this.
Been a fan of your site for a good while now, never have commented (sorry bout that). I enjoy your posts and love finding out how many ways the evil Hello Kitty virus can spread. Goodluck =)
Hellz yeah! I love HK but if it’s to help a cause, anything would help!
Think of the children!
I’ll bite, anything to help out a fellow HK sufferer!
P.S. Kate Donohoe in Gonubie ZA wants the HK floor polisher
Thanks to your help I have managed to overcome any Hello Kitty obsession in myself and my 11 year old daughter. Thank goodness we are avoiding the evil feline. Her comment was I am SO over Hello Kitty.
I am doing my part to get the toys out of the house and to the kids. I truly feel your pain.
I really didn’t want to comment so your wife got her hello kitty trip but my morals won instead,
my boyfriend found this site and got me hooked on it, while I don’t personally have a vendetta against Hello Kitty I really enjoy your blog, hope you get rid of some toys!
I too have never commented on this blog but have been reading it for quite a while. I love HK & even though you don’t divulge where we can get some of the unique items that are featured here, at least us fans know these things are out there. *YAY!*for Hello Kitty & *YAY!* that you & your wife are doing such a great thing for these kids. =)
good luck bro
I’ve been reading your blog for ages (a diehard Kitty fan that would put your wife to shame), but have never commented. This post is reason enough!
Yes, Hello Kitty can be annoying but have you seen the sad state of US cartoons lately? And Badtz-Maru is kind of a bad-ass.
^^rss reader for… quite awhile.^^
and for the record, I’d love a Hello Kitty Trip! haha
Another lurker chiming in! Let’s give those Kitties to needy kids!
Here’s hoping you get tons of the cute little monsters out of your life.
I like Hello Kitty, but not as much as I love your website. I realize the insanity of Hello Kitty “massagers” (that’s just gross) and all the other Hello Kitty nonsense.
Good luck with reaching your 1000 unique readers.
Love the site, been meaning to send in pics of my wife forever, never commented, but been reading awhile. Hope this helps!
you know, I thought hello kitty was cute until I read your blog. Now it makes me want to hurl. I feel for you in your hell!
I got a Hello Kitty Visa last week to keep my expenses down! YEAH!
awesome idea for a great cause!
Hope you can get the 1000 comments! And here’s my share of help.
I just stumbled across your site this afternoon and thought I would chip in. The scary thing is that I was searching for “love hotel” because in my American naivete I had no idea what they were, and they were mentioned in an article I was reading. I am both disturbed and amused by what I found here.
I’m not really a Hello Kitty fan, but I did opt for the Hello Kitty design ATM card on our secondary checking account because my husband sent me to the bank while he stayed home and played City of Heroes on double XP weekend. I felt it was a fitting punishment.
i am one of those lurkers that never comments but always read. i hope you reach your goal and can help the kids out with some awesome toys.
A comment from sweden here, hope the kids like Hello Kitty
I assume that there is a time-line in place for this competition. When will it end if you do not mind me asking? I hope you hit your 1000 comments. He’s my contribution.
thanx for a great site..
i love to read but I don’t comment…
hope you get rid of those 200 hello kitty toys (for the good cause)
donate donate 🙂
Everything for the orphans 🙂
Go get those toys!
Recently discovered your blog, so lurking for a short time, but maybe becoming af long time fan.
I actually love hello kitty and my husband lives in HK hell as well. But donating toys is a great cause and I am sure the kids in Japan will love the Hello Kitty stuff : )
Here you go!
I really hope you hit your mark and get all that crap out of your house. ive been reading your blog for over a year now and dont really comment cause well… all this hello kitty crap kinda makes me throw up in my mouth a little when i read it..
if i were you i would give the sleeping bag to the kids.. that way you dont have to sleep in it 😉
Wow, lets get those toys gone!
First comment by me, but it is for a good cause.
Happy holiday in August, hopefully without Hello Kitty!
Well at first I wondered what evils could the poor orphans have committed to deserve a piece of Hello Kitty Hell so young?
But, since obviously Hello Kitty has cold heartedly decided that she wouldn’t get enough monetary returns from simple charity, I think you are on a on a right track.
Besides kids break stuff, so perhaps in a couple of years there would be a lot fewer of those donated Hello Kitty items left to haunt the living (and, disturbingly, even in graveyard you can’t get away from Hello Kitty). A kind of happy ending.
best of luck
Good luck to ya’. =P
Hmm, I read this blog daily, but just about never commented. Yay for lurkers.
I rather like HK, and can’t really say I’m living in her Hell, but I like seeing the ridiculous stuff people have and how obsessive they are.
Heres my contribution.
I’m torn. If I post, that gets the toys out of your house and to a good cause.
On the other hand, if I post then it spreads the Hello Kitty disease further into the hearts of the most vulnerable.
What to do?
Oh, wait. Damn!
I am one of the many readers on this blog that never leave comments, but I’m all for helping out the shorties.
Good Luck on hitting 1000! I read your blog all the time, and it’s true I think I’ve only commented twice before, but I am an avid reader. Because I love HK and I love to hate her too!
PS My Birthday is coming up and DairyQueen won’t make me an HK ice cream cake like they did last year. Be proud of them, someone has stood up to an HK lover! lol!
I love helping a good cause!
Another watcher that has never commented! I hope you get there!
A part of me really wants you to have to go on that trip, but a larger part of me thinks that donating 200 toys would be a very good thing to do.
I am one of those people that read and never comment.
I’ve been to your site several times, but never commented. I love Hello Kitty, but love reading your blog. Good luck with the toys!
Long time reader and since it’s for a good cause I will comment. Try to stay off the couch.
I am always willing to comment for a good cause, even if I normally never do. Good luck!
Love the blog but, oh the comment drama. Too funny!
Good luck on the 1000! ~ here is my comment to add to the total.
Donate le Kitty toys! w00t! i see darlene can’t be bothered when it’s for something worthwhile!
Long time reader (& Hello Kitty lover!)/First time commenter
I love this blog page even though it has to do with hating on the character that I love and am passionate about. I have a small collection of Hello Kitty stuff, but according to my boyfriend, it’s way too much (even though alot of it came from him 🙂 ). When I told him about this blog page, I told him it could be worse and he could be in real HKH like this guy….and when he found out that his favorite porn star Tera Patrick is a HUGE Hello Kitty fan, he really shut up! WHoa, getting off subject….anyways, I hope my commenting helps you get to your goals….and keep up the HK hating…it only encourages me to find all this new HK stuff 🙂 !
HAhHAAha I hope you fail. It’s fun to watch you suffer… Doesn’t mean I won’t comment, though, to give you the appearance of a chance!
Love the blog ;3
Goodluck getting rid of the toys.
I personally love Hello Kitty, but too much of a good thing..
Good luck on getting the 1000.
Good luck !!!
I almost didn’t want to comment just so you’d have to go on that trip.
However, as a thank you for showing me such awesome HK stuff so I’m commenting.
I really think the kids would enjoy such toys, after all, isn’t hello kitty, as an icon, targeted at little kids? Sans guns and vibrator of course
Honestly, I’m rooting for the kids, I would love to share Hello Kitty with every kid possible.
I read the blog all the time and have never commented before.
I’d guess even when your wife donates all the Hello Kitty toys, won’t that be incentive to buy more?
One more and it’ll be 200! Good luck!
Good luck to you… hope all goes well, whichever result that may be. 🙂
That will not make the kids play with the Hello Kitty stuff if they don’t want to right?
Hoooray! Can you get a tax deduction on all the crap she is donating?
i read this blog all the time, but i definately lurk. i just hate commenting. i’m not clever. i sometimes think darlene is your wife, because that’s so something my husband would do to me if i ran this blog, comment under an alias. ^^
also, there’s a hello kitty build-a-bear now. i have pictures.
yay toys for kids.
Dear Mrs. HKH,
Please give some of your toys to the orphans! Think of how much joy and love Hello Kitty will bring to those less fortunate than you! (They certainly are unfortunate if they don’t have any Hello Kitty!)
I always read, but never comment! Cheers!
(Dear Mr. HKH – I made it as heart-wrenching as I could! Good luck giving away some stuff!)
Damn, now I wish that I had not commented on the HK Art thing a couple of weeks back.
I feel your pain as I also have sometimes overwhelmed by this evil masterplan that someday tries to dominate whole world. If I could get flamethrower and “Hello Kitty” factory on the line I would be very happy man.
Lets hope that your household will be cleansed from those horrible thingies once and for all! 😀
De-lurking for the orphans (and so you can avoid the HKH holiday!)
If any of those Hello Kitty toys are rejected by the toy drive, just zip them up and send them to this address.
I really hope that you are able to reach your goal!
And here’s another brick in the wall. Hope you can reach 1000 comments!
I will save you!
thats an awesome deal you’ve struck. good luck getting the kids toys back to the kids.
Wow, already over 200 comments?! Awesome!
I’ve actually been coming to this site for awhile, and even read all the past posts, I just never got around to commenting!
But yeah, even though there are some things I like about HK, some of the things that are around are simply ridiculous!
Anyways, good luck on reaching 1000!! I’ll definately tell my friends to come and leave their mark! Good luck!
The toy drive is a wonderful idea.
I love the zombie things featured on the site.
I actually read HK Hell religiously and while I love HK I send it to my best guy friends when I find something extreme that they would find repulsive. I have commented in the past but no one ever says anything about them so I stopped. So I hope the orphans like their new toys. :]
I teach high school and have met some Hello Kitty addicts so I think your wife should give up her collection to the babies.
i read it all and go girl! go help a good cause, both u and ur husband will be happy 🙂 im sure!
I love your blog but don’t post as I don’t have anything to add to the craziness of HKH. A friend showed me this site and I’ve been hooked ever since, and I don’t even like HK! She’s bugged ever since I was little and I promptly broke, lost, or gave away any HK items that were misguidedly given to me.
It’s for a good cause. I hope you get lots of toys from your wife (and other places) for the children.
haha dude this rocks, i’m just wondering if they’re going to give them stricly to girls or if the guys are getting them too
First time commenter from Berkeley, CA. I’m delighted to hear that your wife is making kids happy future Hello Kitty lovers!
I like Hello Kitty, but you deserve a break.
Here’s my contribution I guess… Hope you make it.
My daughter is only 6 and her 21 year old cousin has started her on the Hello Kitty addiction. Is there a 12 step program?
I’ve never had occasion to comment before, but I do check in from time to time.
heh… I’m subjected to this off and on by a friend of mine (ando…). i find the absolute breadth of HK stuff to be both amazing and disturbing…
Hi. here’s another comment. Catface looks a little like Hello Kitty.
Give it all away!
Best. Site. Ever. (and I’m a mild HK fan)
down with the fell cat demon
I really fell compassionate about your pain, coz’ my girlfriend is a Hello Kitty freak too (she got offered an HK toilet seat and installed it in our bathroom…).
I post this comment here to help you get rid of some hellish feline crap and that is THE good cause.
I usually don’t comment (especially since I actually like Hello Kitty *sorry* but just find your plight somewhat amusing), but this is a very nice cause. Good luck! I hope your wife decides to donate a lot of toys (for your sake and the children’s). =)
Love this idea, but in a sick way might you by giving these toys to the children, create some one elses hello kitty hell?
I haven’t ever commented before, but do occasionally read, when prompted by my Hello-Kitty obsessed friend. Good luck with the drive!
Oh, lawd. Good luck.
Good on you for donating toys, though, that’s great.
OH, LORD. THE PERSON ABOVE ME IS RIGHT.
Then again, they will most likely be sharing the toys. Hope they enjoy them as much as your wife does!
great site, great idea!
while i love hello kitty, sanrio never ceases to delight and horrify me with its massive product overload. best of luck ridding yourself of hello kitty items.
hope you’ll get your 1000+ comments soon!
aw heck why not. good luck!
This would be awesome, I hope your wife is generous with the toys no matter what since it’d be such a boon to the kiddies. (Even if the cat has reached new and stupid levels of ridiculous, toys are toys!)
So you’ll be exposing young impressionable minds to the pure evil that is Hello Kitty? I hope you’re proud of yourself 😛
good luck buddy!!!
Awww, we all knew you had a heart of gold despite the hatred for Hello Kitty, hehehe. I hope this helps you get the 200 toys for the kids! I’ll try to get my blogger friends to come help! Good luck!
I just got sent here by a post on a forum, figured I’d join in on the cause. Hope you can get out of that vacation! And its great that she’s letting you give away stuff based on your comments.
I like Hello Kitty but find your blog hilarious.
Hope this helps the kids at the orphanage!!
I’m wondering what your wife would do… Although I know it’s for a good cause, if I was her, it’d be so hard for me to give up my Hello Kitty items…. Afterall, it’s collected from a lot of places in the world and every one of it means something.
You know what, maybe she’ll just buy another 200 and give those away instead of the ones she have! hehe…
that’s just kickass. everyone wins! you dispose of 200 HK little pieces of clutter (maybe she’ll donate the sleeping bag?) and a bunch of kids get presents! I love it!
This sounds like a worthy cause! Consider yourself commented upon!
Not residing in Hello Kitty Hell myself, I often find the products you post more amusing than terrifying. But there are some that truly make me gasp.
It’s so great that you do this toy drive and I’m most happy to contribute to the cause. (And you can tell your wife, I don’t even subscribe to your RSS feed. I just read your blog on my own!)
I had a Hello kitty obsession for a while. But luckily I grew out of it. I love your site. I can not believe all the hello kitty shit there is.
Good Luck! I hope you hit 1000.
well i have been reading your blog for a while and personally love HK so i never comment but since its for the children i sure do hope you get the 1000 comments 🙂
Hello Kitty has the best fan base, they make (and or buy) Vibrators, M-16’s, everything! Good luck on the toy drive!.
I read this all the time too, but never comment! I hope you get the 1000 comments, but does that mean that some poor orphan children will have to endure Kitty’s mouthless horror?
Yay for kids! I hope they get lots and lots of new toys 😀
Do it for the children. At least they will play with the toys!
Wow, never realized just how into Hello Kitty some people were. Neat site!
That is nice of your wife. Good luck!
This is a very creative compromise for you two. If only my father-in-law had thought of this for his second wife and her obsession with Longaberger baskets… 😉 I hope that you’re able to get the thousand comments, since I agree that the Hello Kitty is just so disgustingly cutesy-Evil that it should be eradicated. But then again, I probably shouldn’t talk, since my husband has forbidden me from bringing any more wolf pictures/statues/figurines into our home. Heh. ;p
Good luck on getting rid of stuff!
i’ll help not only because i love hello kitty and this blog and helping children, i also want you to be a little bit happier with 200 hello kitty things gone. i love her, but even i dont have that many. i hope this helps!!!!
hey!!! i am hoping to help you and the kids! i have a love/hate w/ HK and i love your site.
so i’m commenting, as Michael Jackson would say, “for the children…” 😉
Hey, just dropping by to comment so that 1/5 of a toy is donated!
Good luck on hitting 1000 comments!
Hi, this sounds like a task worth doing! There. Greetings from Finland.
I read your blog every day with a mixture of horror and laughter. Keep it up, and I’ll cross my fingers you don’t have to take that trip!
You poor man. Good luck!
More than glad to make your Hello Kitty Hell at least a tiny bit less hellish!
I’m a relatively new reader, but loving it 🙂 Hope this helps get a toy to a kiddy!
Good luck! I thought your post about the Hello Kitty fountain bleeding instead of crying was hilarious. I hope you win the bet and that the kids get all 200 new toys.
I’m here thanks to the viral internet geniuses of blog-land that helped spread the word about your good cause! Good luck, and may the … um … kitty… be with you???
Good luck dude! I see your well on your way to the thousand posts 😀
Go go more comments!
What a smashing idea! I’m not a mad Hello Kitty lover(a wee bit too cute for me), but I am sure the children will really appreciate this! What a lovely idea and nice to have dropped by to say hello 🙂
Yay for helping people out!
The evils of Hello Kitty are as nothing next to the evils of Barney or Barbie.
What an awesome idea! That is the kitty spirit! 🙂
Love the site! And good luck (to you…not the wifey :p!)
One more comment to add to the totals.
Here’s a comment :]
Because nobody should have 200 Hello Kitty items in their household.
hi. hello kitty sucks
I’m not sure wether I’m a HK-fan or not (maybe in a very ironical way), but I do read your blog 🙂
I suffer with you, and salute your wife for her sacrifice… doesn’t make much sense that I’m on both of your sides…
But anyway, a comment!
Doing my part to get you to 1000. Good luck!
damn you Hello Kitty forget the illuminati, it is you who rule the world…
I hope you win. Good luck!
🙂 Yay for the toy donations 😀
Hmmm, help the children, help get your wife to Puroland…tough call. 🙂
I love this blog! I regularly check back here, I can never quite believe the variety of Hello Kitty crap out ther. I really hope you get those 200 toys donated to the orphanage!
Oh hell yeah! There’s no way you deserve to go on an entire Hello Kitty trip- and those kids need toys.
BTW, that Hello Kitty racing suit made me want to drive forks through my eyes.
Commenting to help the cause!
What I want to know is, what is a Hello Kitty trip? Is there a Hello Kitty theme park like DisneyLand?
I see this blog because i have a frienda that love the stupid cat (i crew out of it when i became a teenager or so).
I read this because then i can tease her with the new stuff (se also read the blog, so she knows about it).
I’m glad to post this and help 2 good causes, yours and the orphans…
I love HK, it’s embarassing, you must realize, we can’t help ourselves. You are lucky and don’t know it, my SIL likes cows! ughh.
In solidarity, against Hello Kitty. One of my favorite rock bands did a big Hello Kitty advertising blitz last year, much to my dismay and threats to protest. I think I feel your pain better than most!
I love this blog and though I’ve never commented before, I do read all the time. I was first introduced to it by my best friend suggesting I should get a hello kitty wedding cake for my upcoming nuptials…HA!
Will giving away 200 Hello Kitty items mean that your home is Hello Kitty free, or does she have even more?
Another long-time lurker here. Hate Hello Kitty, love the blog!
orphans need to know the love that is hello kitty!!!
Long time reader – first time commenter! Here’s a cyber toast to the ultimate evil, Hello Kitty. Good luck avoiding the HK trip.
Good Luck, I hope you get to 1000
Anything for a good cause.
I just wanted to say that when I’m down I look at your blog and it cheers me up.
I love hello kitty to death and I found this website looking for ideas for a hello kitty tattoo. It makes me laugh. Good for the kids I hope you make at least a 1000 comments
Give them toys to charity!
You’ll get easily 10’000. Yay for making a lot of orphans happy. 🙂
I read this blog all the time! I like Hello Kitty too :3
I think it will be great for all the kids without toys to get something cute and good <3
How can you NOT feel compelled to comment for the kiddies? Ok, I admit I LOVE HK but there are some things that are just WAY out there & I find myself chuckling at the absurdity that can be HK.
I must say though that the leather Motorcycle cut takes the cake. How can he stand there so serious? LOL
I have a friend that loves hello kitty. I will show her this blog.
and you’re going to be going on that trip!
PS. I love the idea of helping the orphans.
I’ve been visiting this blog for ages but I never comment, so I’m more than happy to do my little bit in eradicating as much Hello Kitty products from your house 😀 Good luck!
that’s a lot of hello kitty items… wow.
First time commenting! There is a lot of hello kitty stuff, and your suffering… makes me sort of happy. Schadenfreude!
Your blog has made it to my rss feeds, and I hope that you won’t succumb to the horrors of hello kitty hell!
I want to see more Hello Kitty Anti Personell Devices =)
Go team Orphan!
Love your blog — I’ll buy you a beer if our paths ever cross. I hope your wife doesn’t use this as an excuse to buy more in order to fill the void!
Let me jusz start off by saying dat yes i do read u’r post evrytime i go online but have yet 2 leave a comment till now.
i think dat wut u’r trying 2 do here is great!!!! =)
sooo jusz helping da cause!!!..o nd i LOVEEEE HELLO KiTTY!!!
SORRY =/ lOl.
I read, and just don’t comment. Keep up the good work!
Hello Kitty has to go!!!
i’m another one of those people who loves to read your blog but never comment, mostly because i never have anything constructive to say and at least a little bit because i’m torn about my own hello kitty obsession. i’m 28 yrs old and a phD student in women’s studies and sociology and go to class with notebooks i made myself decorated with hello kitty. my gameboy, my xbox controlers, and way to much other stuff have hello kitty stickers stuck to them. my boyfriend thinks it’s cute, but i know he also cringes because it seems so darned unprofessional. best and keep it up!!!!!!!!!!
I never comment because honestly, the posts are all pretty much the same. But I still read because it’s still funny.
Long time lurker, first time commenting! Good Luck!
Poor Sanrio. Lucky you!
even though i am a hello kitty fan, i read your blog every day & think it’s hilarious.
(i hope you have to take your wife on the HK trip 😉
i am a lurker, coming out for a good cause. love the blog, it makes me laugh! and, i look at HK in a whole different light now.
I have been reading this blog for quite a while now, but I have remained one of your invisible readers. This is a nice opportunity to “come out of the closet”. 😉
I have to admit that I like Hello Kitty and that I own a few items with her image. But as long as my boyfriend keeps giving me more Hello Kitty items, I’m assuming I’m not pushing him into Hello Kitty Hell. He’s going voluntarily! XD I even convinced him to post here so that more toys will be donated to charity.
I like this blog because it reminds me of how ridiculous I am sometimes, drooling over children’s toys. Your humour is excellent and I feel genuinely sorry for your involuntary stay in Hello Kitty Hell. Please continue to write and find your way out!
I’m only worried about one little thing: what effect will 200 Hello Kitty toys have on innocent children? How many obsessed females who will force their husbands down Hello Kitty Hell will it create? Let’s hope those children will be sensible enough to see what those toys really are: manifestations an evil feline plotting world domination.
I believe my comment is supposed to go here? 😛
I have been reading some of your blogs my girlfriend showed me and I genuinely feel sorry for the Hell you have to go through. When I gave my girlfriend a Hello Kitty watch for her last birthday, I didn’t think of the(future) Hell I might be pushing myself in. So from this day on, no more Hello Kitty for her. =3
… *girlfriend giving him the angry look*
On second thought, maybe a little something every now and then won’t be so bad… ^^;
Hope you make a lot of kids happy! 😀
just doing my bit to help 🙂 ty for the fantabulous blog, even if i like HK (but only her cartooness. don’t like plush she looks eerily creepy like that to me. not perfect) lol!!
anyway, good luck with the 1000 comments!!!!
Love the blog, great thing your doing here. Both the blog, and charity:) Im a hardcore Hello Kitty lover though! I check it daily and i like to show my husband what he’s missing out on, haha. I even have people trained at work to but he HK product up front if they get it in. Have a great day.
Heh. I have the RSS feed on my feedreader, I think that counts as being a regular reader. 😉
Good luck! Looks like… what, 60-some toys so far?
first time commenting/long-time reading.
Love the blog and the Hello Kitty toy donation.
Hey, what a great cause. Good luck!
I come here to read darlene’s comments! She is kindo Cuckoo o_O
Hi everybody ^_^
Love this blog. Good Luck!
All these allusions to HK confused me for a bit there. Why are you all so fascinated with Hong Kong, it’s j–oh.
I like Hello Kitty, but people tend to take things way too far. The stuff you post on your site is proof.
Make sure your wife sends her biggest Hello Kitty stuffed animal to the orphans. =)
All too happy to temporarily de-lurk for two good causes.
Sounds like an awesome cause. 🙂
I usually just read and don’t comment (I get the RSS feed on my email), but this time it’s worth it.
for the love of god…donate your hello kitty crap!
Your wife should donate to charity just for the sake of donating…not because of how many comments one receives!
this is such a great thing!
Aww, that’s so cute! It’s nice of your wife to be doing that for you…
While I haven’t commented before now I do have your blog in my RSS feeds and read every new update! While I like Hello Kitty there are many, many posts here that even I just go “WTF?!” Hope you get all 1,000 comments!
I’ve only posted 1 other comment I normally read to give me a laugh. I hope you get to pick which 200 items.
Thanks for giving me the splendid opportunity to ever-so-slightly de-Kittify your house. It is not often that one is presented with a chance to directly improve a fellow human’s wellbeing and sanity.
Hey, do you have any Cinnamoroll items in your house? You live in Tokyo.. right?
Good luck on your noble mission.
Good luck with your 200 items, BUT! im thinking of how happy those kids will be to receive some hello kitty goodness in their lives, YAY!
I enjoy the site. Hope you make your goal.
I didn’t think it was possible for someone to have 200 hello kitty items. Let alone be all toys and still have some to spare! Crazy!
Love the blog – haven’t commented until now – doing it for the kids!!!!!
Another lurker/non-commenter. I hope you reach your goal — after reading through your archives and recommending your site to friends and relatives, I think you deserve to shed some of the HK things in your house! Good luck!
I’ve posted to only a couple items, so your wife’s wrong about people like me not existing.
By the way, you have my full sympathy; I started as neutral to Hello Kitty, but some of the things you’ve shown have had me staring in utter disbelief.
The one thing that this blog has shown is that you really love your wife. Love should always be encouraged.
I hope she leaves you at least one room totally free of HK. Everyone deserves an area that’s theirs alone, with only the stuff they really like in it. Not to say you can’t have your wife in there, of course. 🙂 After all, if you like, say, fishing, she shouldn’t have to put up with fishing tackle, stuffed bass and trophies, and such all across her vanity table.
Just my thought. Good luck to you both. Last comment: I really appreciate that she’s willing to donate some of her beloved items to those less fortunate. That shows a truly loving heart on her part; I’m sure you cherish it, as well as her. (And lest the evil-minded think I mean you love her only because she’s willing to get rid of some of the HK items, that’s not what I mean at all.)
….lol! when those kids get the hello kitty stuff their place is going look like she threw up in it!
Well, I’m torn. I’d want the Hello Kitty vacation, but I think the kids are a bit more important.
Okay, I’ve read this blog for a long time and never posted. And while I AM a fan of HK, I think you’re a strong man, cause even I couldn’t deal with so much of it. Good luck!
Heres hoping for no hello kitty trip, gl.
I’m a Hello Kitty fan, but still, go, do it! Get to 500! 😀
omg! i love hk and love this blog as well!
This is the first post I read and my first visit, I like HK but the few items that I have were all gifts so I’ll leave a comment just because I think the post is hilarious 😉
I’ll be stealing your feed :-p
Tell her the Hello Kitty vibrator needs to stay, but the rest of it can go. 😉
I adore Hello Kitty and I’m sure your wife’s sacrifice will make some orphans very happy! I think she start packing some things up ’cause it looks like she’s got some donating to do 🙂
Wow! THis was too good to pass up! I check this blog EVERYDAY! I am a die hard hello kitty fan, but reading this blog has caused me to realize the torture i’m inflicting on everyone around me. I’m active duty Air Force and I used to decorate my overhead with nothing but Pink and Hello Kitty. It got to the point where folks decided that they couldn’t beat me, so they joined me and started adding things to my overhead Kittly collection! This blog satisfies my Kitty craving, and now I don’t buy as much HK stuff. I CALL IT KITTY THERAPY!!!! Keep up the awesome work, and I might be able to de-kittify my 7 year old daughter!
Great idea! Good luck!
Long time reader, first time poster (and Hello Kitty lover – sorry 🙂 ). Good luck!
good luck with that!
o man i understand. my mom is 48 and obsessed with hello kitty. she acts like a 5 year old when she gets around something hello kitty. i really dont get it.
Toys for the Kids!
Another RSS subscriber delurking for the cause. Good luck to you!
Here’s to another Hello Kitty item gone! Glad to help a good cause – well 2 good causes really! 😉
I’m a recent reader and this is my first time commenting. Good luck!
Great idea! Through this blog I’ve realized the great power of Hello Kitty’s evilness and have gotten many of friends to feel the same way.
Almost half way..
i like hello kitty but i enjoy reading what you write. i hope this helps.
It’s not often I come out of lurking, but this is such a good cause I have to! 🙂
Love your blog…but love hello kitty more! Good Luck! >.<
PS… kind of want you to go on the Kitty trip…so you will have more crap to write
God be with you, my friend.
Haha, I’m a huge Hello Kitty fan (yes, I’m one of the freaks who actually has a tattoo and everything) and I’ve had this blog on an RSS feed for a long time. Never once commented because I figured anything I might have to say would be unwelcome, being a Hello Kitty lover and all, but the blog definitely entertains me greatly. While I love Hello Kitty immensely, I also see the humor in the obsession for anyone on the “outside.”
Now, let me just be clear, I’m not posting this to “make” your wife get rid of stuff. I’m posting it to help some underprivileged kids who don’t have any Hello Kitty stuff at all to get some stuff!
I still can’t believe she has 200 Hello Kitty items lying around to donate :O Get those things the Hell out of there! …especially since they’re going to such a good cause.
Good luck, man…
Viva la blog!
Another reader coming out in support..:)
I have to say, I loved Hello Kitty as a child, but as an adult I find it very annoying. What’s even more annoying is other adults with Hello Kitty products. They are made for children, so let’s give ’em to the kids already!
First time comment – good luck with dumping toys!
let’s ship those toys out ;x it’s going towards a very good cause
Hope this ends well for you 🙂
And hereby the evil feline serves a true purpose!!!!
I used to LOVE Hello Kitty. Then I turned 7.
Here’s to decreasing Hello Kitty Hell, even if only by a little.
I am subscribed to HKH via RSS, but I’m dropping by to comment and do my part to get those toys to the kids. 🙂
You’ve got all my support! Hope you can make it 🙂
My boyfriend got me, a Hello Kitty fan(atic), hooked on your blog! Love it 😀
finally being a lurker pays off! Good luck, from a recovering HK addict…
<3 xox thanks for your blog it makes my weeks better xoxo<3
How self serving … Inflicting HK of unsuspecting children. But this deserves my 1st blog comment from my iPhone.
I, as your wife, am absolutely obsessed with Hello Kitty. But I admit..I like reading your blog and find amusement in your displeasure with all things Hello Kitty. I’ll help you get rid of these toys..in the end..we’re doing it for the kids!
I love to read your blog, but I never would comment due to the drama even IN the comments.
How posting can lead to helping a Kid’s Charity, I would do it, and that’s why I’m posting.
I’m not sure if I should be happy or sad you MIGHT be going on a trip this August.
This is my first comment here. Great blog! Good luck and keep it up!
I randomly found this site yesterday searching tattoos and saw so many creepy Hello Kitty tattoos! I always thought it was cute, but now I just find it insaneee. Anyway, good luck with the donating of Hello Kitty toys!
here’s 1 more post!
I have to admit that I happen to love Hello Kitty, but from what I’ve read here, your wife takes it WAY over the top. You’re a great guy for putting up with all of it. My boyfriend would lose his mind if I filled the house with all that stuff.
Here’s my contribution, hopefully the toys will make those kids smile.
there are going to be a lot of happy orphans 😀
This is so very sweet. Donating toys would be nice =]
Hello! I’ve only commented on your Blog a few times, but I am a frequent reader. Donating a some of the Hello Kitty Toys would really make some of the little ones happy. It’s so sweet that you help out the orphanage. Good luck with everything. 🙂
Mind you, this 1000 comments thingy is helping spread your name. This is your first post I´ve read, and I think I´m gonna keep reading.
But why would you give something you absolutely hate and that makes your life hell to orphans?
Wow, ever since i saw you sight i thought:
HK is waaaaaay out of control.
Persona;;y, i perfer the cute little anime mascots. 😀
kyoto sent me. so happy hunting:)
I haven’t been commenting as frequently as I used to, but I’ll still support a good cause! I kind of did the same thing. I donated two garbage bags full of Hello Kitty stuff to my brother’s friend’s daughter who has cerebal palsy. She really liked it of course, plus all the stuff I gave her was way too childish for me anyways and I shouldn’t have bought it in the first place. Anyways, good luck, and I hope you make it to 1000!
Well, this is probably the easiest charity work I have ever done! Whee! LAWL
hello kitty i adore thee!
i like hello kitty but not to the point where everything i own is hello kitty. i do want to make a fieldtrip to puroland in tokyo before i die though. good luck, i hope you reach 1000!
Awesome 😀 I hope you make it!
Hehe…what makes you think she’s going to use toys she already has. Fanatics do not part with thier treasured items. Unless she’s making room for bigger toys.
My daughter sent me this website and I absolutely love it! I lurk a lot but I’d be glad to help you out!
hi. i read this blog pretty regularly, and Hello Kitty’s eyes scare me with thier ability to bore through walls and the backs of skulls.
I check your blog everyday. You’re almost halfway to 1000!
Hi! This is my first time commenting on HKH although I’ve been reading for awhile now. I’m a Hello Kitty collector — nowhere near as big of a fan as your wife. I like having hard to find items like things from Vivitix in China, not the generic things like letter sets, etc. I find in America.
Your blog has provided many moments of hilarity for me. Hope you reach your goal!
I have only commented one other time on this blog, but I do it subscribe and read it regularly. I hope this comment helps the toy drive.
I’m a habitual lurker, and even though I do indeed find Hello Kitty cute, I accept that she will one day come to rule the earth. I never commented because I didn’t feel like I could contribute anything, but I’ve been reading since last year.
HELLO KITTY HAS NO MOUTH
i read your blog every day!!!!! i love it!!!!! i have commented once or twice before. make your woman donate her stuff!!its worth it to see a child smile!
eesh! my 11 year old says you have his pity. Good luck reaching the goal – wifey will be happier if she clears out the lesser artifacts.
Been reading for a while, but never commented.
I am glad that my comment can help relieve you of some Hello Kitty, but also gain some karma points for helping the kids.
For once I agree with Darlene on something. The orphans should get toys, but i think your wife’s sacrifice should be praised in the form of a cruise. Just think, your house will be less of a HKH, all you have to endure is a boat for a few days =)
I love your blog and hello kitty too
Great cause! Good luck reaching a 1000!
Hello Kitty is horrible, but your blog isn’t!
I never knew there were so many RIDICULOUS Hello Kitty items!
Well, hope I helped a little in getting towards that 1000 mark.
=]] Best of luck.
i’m also a first time commenter subscribed to the rss feed.
i particularly like the terrible hello kitty tattoos you find.
anyways, may the orphans enjoy their toys.
Anything for the kids… =]
Love the blog, keep it up. =D
(sorry – this is a second post from me— hope it doesn’t mess up your count, but you don’t have to publish it)
i’d looooove to see a photo of the two hundred things that get donated…. i’m sure it’ll happen!
I am normally too struck dumb by the horror to comment! Yet I still find Hello Kitty cute sometimes? IT’S A DISEASE.
*back to lurking*
I’m another who reads but doesn’t ever comment! Good luck getting your 1000 comments! (you’re about half way there as of right now, assuming not too many people double-commented)
i love HK, but i love your blog also bc you’re life is hilarious. good luck!!!
Are you sure you want your wife to spread more of KC’s vileness to the innocent children of the orphanages?
Well, okay. Just keep it away from me.
This is great- I got this link sent to me by a friend who’s a fan of your blog… I’m sending it on too.
I’m not really big on hello kitty stuff, but I’m not really big on children either so why not let them have them
I followed a link to your blog. I wish you the best of luck in your efforts on behalf of the orphans.
I have been visiting your Web site regularly for close to a year, but have never written. I am a Hello Kitty fan, but also see the silliness of it. Your musings are very entertaining, and sometimes make me laugh out loud.
Good luck with the toy drive!
This is a great idea and everyone wins! ^_^
I was an orphan for 6 months in Korea…I wish I received some Hello Kitty stuff…So, I am posting for the kids!!!
for the kids!
i read regularly, never commented before!
I am throughly entertained with your blog. I get a little excited when I see there are unread entries from your blog in my RSS reader. Unfortunately, RSS means I don’t venture onto your site as often as I should… and hopefully this boosts the number of people who do read your site and appreciate all that you do.
First time commentor… I think it’s great that she is willing to donate so much hello kitty stuff. I hope you reach the 1,000 mark!
Although you do realize that once she donates stuff it probably means that she will have to buy all new stuff to make up for the lack of hello kitty…
Or that you will spend even more money trying to get some key items she may miss afterwards. That’s the worst possible outcome.
Maybe she will find she does not miss/need those things. But I really think it’s great that orphan children will be enjoying some gifts from you guys. I donate things now and again, I would probably have a hard time parting with 200 items all at once!
Sorry, no HK bashing from me. I love HK, we have the same birthday! (and yea I kno…she doesn’t REALLY have a birthday, creation day, whatever–we are one in the same)
even though you complain about HK all the time this site always brings a smile to my face. and also makes me want to move to japan!!!!
my god do i feel for you , if a single HK item came in our house i would initiate divorce proceedings forthwith…
the leathers in the post just below this thread were vile in the extreme…
if i saw a hello kitty BMW M/C i don’t know how i would cope…
i hope you get 2000 responses…
Well done. Good luck with the toy drive!
I shall make my boyfriend comment.
And… keep up the blog.
I’ve been a fan since last year, I have your Feed and always check for new updates… but I’ve never commented before and I guess this is as good a time as any, not only because you’ll have less HK things, or the smile it’ll bring… but the fact that you won’t have to go to any HK vacations any time soon.
Thanks for all the trauma you’ve brought to my life in HK forms, and good luck! =D
Ah yes, Hello Kitty…
They are slowly trying to infect the entire world! Like Furbies! or McDonalds!
Burnz em all, I says!
toys are good. Hello Kitty toys are better!
I feel for you, and I have no problem helping you to lessen your amount of torture.
This is a great cause, and a great blog. Fingers crossed for 1000+
You’ve mentioned you’ll forgive rite even if the comments are positive (and no cursing me with bad luck k…. ;D)?
So here’s my comment for your sake….”I LOVE HELLO KITTYYYY!!!!!” 😀
This will be my first comment but I have wanted to for awhile. I am a recovering Hello kitty addict. I started back in 1976 and continued till 2002.
I no longer spend money on Hello Kitty merchandise but up until this time have kept my near 30 year collection in boxes in the garage.
This post has inspired me to venture out there and make the first step toward letting go of the last remnants of a frightening and expensive addiction.
But do you think it’s right to pass on this addiction to innocent children or should the whole lot be burnt in a bonfire?
I guess I’ll give it all to the kiddies. They’re not my children after all!
Bless you for your efforts and keep fighting the good fight!
good luck!!! 🙂
I check your blog every day, but this is my first time commenting. I love hello kitty but I also think you are a funny guy. You should put up an address where the visitors to the site can donate toys as well. I would…
I have been reading your blog for over a year now and it’s wonderful! Love it, keep it up. Even though my favourite is “My Melody”, but still enjoy seeing unusual HK stuff. Let the kids smile!
This is quite possibly the funniest/oddest charity I’ve ever participated in! I’m glad to help both a child in need AND a suffering hello-kitty-lover’s husband. I’m not a “hello kitty hater,” but I do live with a mother who is OBSESSED with the color purple (who knew they made garden hoses, salt&pepper shakers, & even electric socket extension thingies in purple? I DID. because we have them.)…so I can sympathize a bit 🙂
I am a long time lurker, I love reading your blog, this is my first comment. 🙂 This is great what your wife is doing for the kids, I hope you get 1,000 comments! 😀
I love HK. This site makes me want to move to Japan so I can get lots more of my darling kitty. <3
You must really love your wife to put up with her HK craziness. I don’t mind the cat, but I will not go out of my way to get any of its things. I wish you luck in achieving your goal.
Itty bitty kind and pretty! >^..^<
Another commet I have to goto hello kitty world under threat of death to get HK items I fell your pain 🙁
I check your site everyday but never comment. I like hello kitty but your site is so funny…i know my whole family feels like you.
I love HK and I bet those kids would love them too! I am saving up for a trip to Japan for school, but I’m definitely going to take some time to scout out HK stuff.
Somewhat new reader but props to you for collecting the donations. Keep it up!
Wifey Donate. My husband showed me this blog out of exasperation, then I kept coming back. I like Hello Kitty, but I don’t LOVE HK…it is just a happy part of my childhood. Think of it this way…donating is a double positive because other kiddies get to enjoy HK and your husband gets at least a little breathing room.
xD goodluck haha.
she should at least be willing to give SOME up.
i mean its for a good cause? xD
first time commenting [=
First time commenter here. I also enjoy Hello Kitty but love this blog – it’s too funny! Keep doing what you’re doing!
I love your website!! I check in almost daily, but have never posted before. I loved HK as a kid in the 70’s, and I love her still, but your site is hilarious. Those kids will love whatever your wife donates to them!
I can’t remember if I’ve commented before because I still have new baby brain (and the baby is 8 months old…). Hopefully I can be considered new and I’ll help you reach 1000 unique comments!
i love hello kitty but i do believe somethings have gotten to far. But i think you should still take you wife on her shopping spree since it makes her happy and you love her you would wanna make her happy. so regardless take her on her shopping spree. oh and bring me something back please lol =]
Surely if your wife was a nice person she’d be happy just to donate a load of toys without the whole comment thing? Anyway, Heres to 1/5th of a Hello Kitty toy winging its way to some (un)fortunate Japanese kid…
I discovered your site a month ago and i love it, even though i’m a huge hello kitty fan. Your wife is very generous to give her HK items away.
hey! i hope you reach your goal of 1000 comments. although i love hello kitty…..i only like the stuffed animals as i find other products to extremely creepy. so, its good that you are donating for a good cause!
I read every post on this blog via my feed reader and it always makes me shake my head and wonder why anyone thought the stuff was necessary.
Keep up the good work !
Cool! I think this is comment #557.
I hope you break 1000!
I love to read your blog. I am a fan of the cat but I am appalled at the lengths people go to. Guns? Men’s clothing? Seriously? Anyway, good luck. Is there a way we can help with donations as well?
Neat idea. I hope you get 1000 comments. I like Hello Kitty okay, but it’s definitely better to leave the toys for the kiddos.
Hey, I read this site all the time. And you are completely right. I never comment because I’m speechless.
Just thought that now would be the right time to tell you 😀
have a great day
I’ve “delurked” for this good cause. I love HK, but a little creeped out by the strange things you and others have found. Good luck in reaching 1,000!
