The adorable Hello Kitty character makes a stop at the North as SM City North EDSA and Sanrio get together to deliver the happiest Christmas yet to kids of all ages through the Hello Kitty Christmas at the North. The iconic Sanrio character – first designed by Yuko Shimizu as a white Japanese bobtail cat with a red bow – made her debut in a vinyl coin purse in Japan in 1974.  Since that time, she has grown into a global marketing phenomenon with a wide range of accessories and high- end consumer products, a TV series, and the main character in two Japanese Sanrio theme parks, Harmonyland and the indoor Sanrio Puroland.

       During the event last Nov 10, the Block Atrium was transformed into a Hello Kitty Village inspired by the iconic character and will stay that way from November 10 to January 6!  Mallgoers can take a tour of the Hello Kitty Main Hall, be amazed at her exquisite furniture and décor, and get a chance to meet her Mama Mary and Papa George. 


There are a lot of sweet treats in store at the Hello Kitty Café where Hello Kitty and Mimi serve specially made cupcakes and teas; and at the Hello Kitty Cake Shop, where they can enjoy mouthwatering delicacies shaped like Sanrio characters with Dear Daniel.

Grandpa Anthony and Grandma Margaret, on the other hand, will welcome toy lovers at the Hello Kitty Activity Hall where they can find a wide range of plush, unique, educational, and popular toy collections. Hello Kitty Lanterns will also light up the beautiful Skygarden, giving mall-goers more reason to enjoy the cool holiday air as they stroll along its walkway.  

Come visit SM North Edsa to experience Sanrio's favorite charater! And to add something for you to look forward to, there's going to be Face Painting on  Dec. 15, 16, 22, 23 to complete your Hello Kitty Christmas!
