Here’s a collaboration we never saw coming. Although unexpected, we’re pretty excited to see Hello Kitty and The Simpsons come together.
Next year, the two very popular franchises are teaming up for a special line of products. Hello Kitty will be celebrating its 40th anniversary and The Simpsons will be celebrating its 25th making this quite a landmark year for both franchises.
This collaboration between Sanrio and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products will bring limited-edition collectibles and fans are already trying to guess what could be in this anticipated line of products. Some guess that because the release of the collaboration will occur during the “back-to-school” season of 2014, it will be geared towards that.
The collaboration promises “a fun and unexpected take on The Simpsons‘ transformation within Hello Kitty’s super-cute world,” says Sanrio president Janet Hsu.
The first appearance of this collaboration will make its first appearance at Brand Licensing Europe in London on October 15-17 and available for purchase in the Fall.
