Hello Kitty and Major League Baseball (MLB) has teamed up to released a baseball-themed collection for the 2014 baseball season to highlight all 30 MLB teams. The expanded collaboration, which will build upon the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres themed collections introduced in 2013, will launch on Opening Day and bring a wide offering of MLB-themed Hello Kitty merchandise to baseball fans across the country.
The MLB-themed Hello Kitty products will be available at the in-stadium stores of all 30 MLB teams, select mass retailers, sporting good and specialty stores and MLB.com. Merchandise will include a variety of souvenirs and fan accessories, from collectible Hello Kitty team baseballs, pins, key chains, magnets and plush, to cell phone covers, bags, throws and much more, with MLB-themed apparel also available. Select items will be available later this Spring at Sanrio.com and select Sanrio Boutique Stores.
I’m quite excited from just seeing the artwork already, can’t wait to see what the merchandise will look like! So cute! Sign me up!
