In our first article on the subject of the most bizarre Hello Kitty products, we covered a tiny bit of some truly funny Hello Kitty items. In this article, we are talking about some even more bizarre Hello Kitty products.

Hello Kitty Shoulder Massagers (Seriously???…)

Hello Kitty Shoulder Massagers

This one is more than a bizarre Hello Kitty item; it also has an epic back story. Sometime in the late 1990s, Sanrio, the owner of the Hello Kitty name and image, gave license to a Japanese company called Genyo Co. to manufacture several different Hello Kitty products.

One of the Genyo’s items was a Hello Kitty shoulder massager. Although it was approved by Sanrio and created and marketed as a shoulder massager, some users came up with an idea to massage more than shoulders, apparently inspired by its shape and size.

It didn’t take too long until the Hello Kitty shoulder massager appeared on all lists of ‘must have toys’. The Sanrio executives expressed its disgust and tried to break free from the contract with Genyo.

After several years of legal struggle, Genyo eventually gave in and the toy was pulled from the market.

However, Sanrio apparently recovered from being disgusted, as they soon launched their line of ‘shoulder massagers’, this time in various colors, too.

Well, it may seem odd that a girly feline character (without mouth), targeted at preadolescent girls would appear on a pack of cigarettes, but there it is. Everything goes in Japan, apparently.

Hello Kitty Ball Gag

Yes, we were surprised, too. All the innocence of a Hello Kitty image seems to have disappeared with this ball gag. An abrupt way to end the childhood… Of course, we are joking, as there were Hello Kitty sex toys an accessories before this one came out.

Hello Kitty Men’s Underwear

In the previous article, you could have read that the Hello Kitty character was first aimed at pre-adolescent females, but was soon adopted by post-adolescent females too… and not only females. Whether you are a Hello Kitty fan or just want to surprise your girlfriend who happens to love all things Hello Kitty, here you are…
