The Insanity over the Mcdonalds Hello Kitty Toys

If you didn’t already know..the last Hello Kitty designThe Singing Bone is SOLD OUT at most of the 24 hour Mcdonalds as of 12.30am.

The queues were insane and I heard rumours of a fight over the kitties at Jurong (To be confirmed).

Spotted on 9Gag Singapore, I downloaded the video and uploaded it on Youtube as I can’t embed Facebook videos in WordPress.

Hello Kitty buy until wanna fight! Tension siol!

^ yeah the police had to be called in apparently. can’t really tell what was going on though

What’s happening in the video? Well, as spotted on STOMP:

Drama over Hello Kitty: Police called in after man creates scene during queue
“The guy in white was queuing for Hello Kitty at Bukit Batok Central’s McDonald’s and claimed that people in front had jumped queue. So he asked the Mac managers at around 10.50pm how are they going to handle the situation, and are they going to issue coupons to those in the queue?

Mac managers said there will be enough for everyone. At 11.30pm, Mac started handing out coupons to those in the queue and he didn’t get the coupons.

“He was very unhappy and started abusing the management there, refusing to leave.He and a few others started queuing in front of the counter, bought a meal at midnight and demanded a Hello Kitty even though he didn’t have the coupon. He keep shouting at the mangers, asking the manager (Siew Mei) to resign cause she f**ked things up.

Other than that..

Also spotted on Ebay was this:

The closing bid for the Singing Bones Hello kitty was S$126K! Yes, S$126,000. Obviously the person was trolled. And no..someone DID NOT pay $126k for it if you were wondering. That’s because you can easily make a fake acct to bid, and then not pay and dump the account. Moreover it wasn’t a BUY IT NOW price..so that’s why. Anyway, this is ridiculous..

trolled

Meanwhile, here are the photos sent in from my colleagues and the bf who went to queue as well to try to get 1 more for myself and for my colleagues last night. And uhm..nope, didn’t manage to get it XD

Taken at Tampines CC by the bf. The Singing Bone was sold out within 3 minutes at 12 midnight:

And WHY so fast?
Because apparently Mcdonalds started issuing queue coupons

Also spotted on Yahoo Singapore:

Singaporeans queue up for limited edition Hello Kitty toy

Singaporeans formed incredibly long queues outside popular fast food chain across the city-state to get hold of a limited edition Hello Kitty toy. Called “The Singing Bone”, it is also the final edition of a toy collection brought in by the chain called “Hello Kitty Tale series”.

Also..I thought each person is only able to get 4 kitties?

Either this person cheated or he brought his family to help him get it:

^ Walao right? You buy 4 per person – that’s fine..but seriously..

Also, saw this hilarious photo from 9Gag Singapore:

Types of People You’ll See in a Hello Kitty Queue

Anyway, Feel SUPER heng that I managed to snag the Singing Bone Hello Kitty at the Mcdonalds event which I attended prior to the launch of the Hello Kitties as seen below.

I hope you guys were lucky enough to snag one!

If not..you might try buying it from the sellers who imported them from overseas ie – Hong Kong and China. But note the difference – it just doesn’t have a box but comes with a plastic wrapper instead.

BUT if you just need it for aesthetic purposes to complete your collection, then I guess it doesn’t matter right?

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Original Post:

I was really lucky to be invited by Omy.sg and Mcdonalds to the sneak preview of Mcdonald’s Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection that will be launching on 30 May 2013(:

The first thing I noticed when I arrived at the Hello Kitty Fairytale Party held at Mcdonalds Ang Mo Kio were these:

So basically each blogger was given a Hello Kitty plush from the latest collection each as well as Hello Kitty geek spectacles! Pictured above are 3 of the 6 designs available(:

And unpackaging it..

It’s Hello Kitty Little Red Riding Hood available from 6 June – 12 June 2013!

You can remove her hood too btw!(:

How adorably cute right?! And yes, they are wayyy bigger than the previous Hello Kitty collectionhence the price difference!

At that point, there were only 3 designs that were revealed to us initially. And here they are in their glory. Pictured below from left to right:

1. Hello Kitty x The Wizard of Oz (Available 30 May – 5 June 2013)
2. Hello Kitty x The Frog Prince (Available 13 June – 19 June 2013)
3. Hello Kitty x Little Red Riding Hood (Available 6 June – 12 June 2013)

However, it was later revealed that there are in total of SIX (6) Hello Kitty designs available in the Mcdonalds Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection as mentioned earlier.

1. Hello Kitty x The Wizard of Oz (Available 30 May – 5 June 2013)
2. Hello Kitty x Red Riding Hood – (Available 6 June – 12 June 2013)

Priced at S$4.60 each with every Extra Value Meal ordered at all Mcdonalds outlet EXCEPT the Hello Kitty x McDelivery Special Edition – only obtainable through McDelivery

Oh and I think that Hello Kitty x The Frog Prince is SUPER cute!

That’s the Hello Kitty x The Singing Bone

And another one of my favourites: Hello Kitty – The Ugly Duckling

And last but not least..the special edition, McDelivery Hello Kitty!(:

And again, here’s a picture of some of the other Hello Kitty plushies! Pictured below from left to right.

Oh ho, and during the event, we were also given an additional Hello Kitty plush on a random basis and I managed to snag this baby!

Hello Kitty – The Singing Bone (Limited Edition)

At the same time, I also managed to snag this Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection badge! ^^

So other than letting us have the first hand sneak peeks into the Mcdonalds Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection, we were also treated to a number of unlaunched Mcdonalds items on the menu (coming soon!)

1. Strawberry McFizz

Mmm yummy and super refreshing!

2. Curry Shaker Fries

It’s good! I prefer this shaker fries over the others!

3. New Wasabi and Honey Mustard Dips (Launching 13 June 13)

Would recommend the honey mustard dip – it’s good! Some might prefer the wasabi flavoured one, but it’s not my favourite even though the wasabi taste is rather mild~

Onomnomonom!

Even Red Riding Hood Hello Kitty couldn’t resist(:

Man, I’m so glad to have been invited to the sneak peek of the Mcdonalds Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection! I was able to make new friends such as Stacy pictured below as well as the rest of the bloggers there!(:

Here’s a group shot of all the bloggers who attended!(:

Btw if you were wondering about the Go Play slogans all over - basically McDonalds is launching a Go Play campaign to celebrate the season of fun during the holidays! So expect exciting new menu tweaks coming to McDonalds such as the new range of breakfast platters and awesome discounts to help you SAVE MORE to PLAY MORE!(:

Lastly, just wanted to end off by giving thanks to omy.sg and McDonalds for inviting me to the Hello Kitty Fairytale Party! I had a blast!(:

Oh and don’t forget to stay tuned to McDonalds Singapore Facebook to be updated on the unveiling of the first plush to be launched for sale to the public on 30 May 2013!(:

I’m SO looking forward to collecting the full set of Mcdonalds Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Collection!

Are you?(:
