Vibrator Reborn


Oh, the irony. For anyone who thought that Hello Kitty wasn’t first and foremost out to make a buck, the following newly released item should put that to rest. Many of you know that there was a Hello Kitty vibrator that was made about 10 years back, but had been discontinued. Most people are aware of the history of the shoulder massagers, but in case you aren’t, here are the basics:

It all started back in 1997 when Sanrio gave a license to Genyo Co. to make a number of different Hello Kitty products. They produced all different types of products and one that was approved was a Hello Kitty shoulder massager. This was sent out to gift shops, restaurant chains, and other knick-knack stores and was truly sold as a shoulder massager around Japan initially.

It wasn’t long, however, that some people decided to use the shoulder massagers to massage other areas besides their shoulders. The Hello Kitty shoulder massagers that were being sold at the store down the street began to show up in adult movies. Soon they were also being sold in adult video shops and the sales of the product skyrocketed. Eventually it made its way online to be sold internationally as a “must have” sex toy.

When Sanrio found out that the shoulder massager was being sold as a sex toy, they claimed to be disgusted, especially since the Sanrio name and Hello Kitty character were on it. They immediately contacted Genyo Co. and asked them to stop. The Hello Kitty vibrator had at this point gained cult status and was selling like hotcakes and Genyo Co. had no intention of letting a hugely profitable product be taken off the shelf just because people were using it to stimulate other parts than intended. Sanrio tried to revoke Genyo’s licensing rights, but Genyo refused saying they had a valid license that had been approved and had spent much money developing the product.

The fight between the two companies continued until Genyo Co.’s top officials found themselves in tax trouble for some shady business dealings they were involved with. This gave Sanrio the reason they needed to revoke the license and Sanrio took the “shoulder massagers” off the market. The shoulder massagers that were still in outlets were soon bought up and sold as collector items sometimes reaching over $100 on eBay.

Since Sanrio was supposedly so disgusted and enraged by this “shoulder massager,” you can imagine my surprise when I received an email letting me know that they have revived it – selling it for just over $10 (1260 yen) in the Sanrio Japanese online store:

Oh, but it gets even better. Not satisfied to come out with only the same thing they had in the past, it now is also available in black:

This development of the “shoulder massager” being sold again is especially disturbing to all those that live in Hello Kitty Hell. At the end of the day, that is the last place you want to see Hello Kitty no matter how much pleasure the Hello Kitty fanatic claims that Hello Kitty brings. If this is the type of news the holiday season is going to be bringing me, it’s definitely going to be the most Hello Kitty Hellish one ever…

Thanks to Noa who really should be given some unspeakable torture treatment for even having the thought that letting my wife know these existed was a good idea…

Update: It appears they are available in red and lavender as well:

    Ok. You finally got me. Yes, I own an original HK vibrator.

    In fact when they came out I bought 4, gave 3 to girls I was seeing.

    And yes, I’ve carried mine to strip clubs because strippers crowd around the table when word spreads.

    There. Darlene will be happy.

    I feel so wrong…….kind of.
    ————————————————————————–

    How sad, Darlene didn’t address you directly. How simply awful! Maybe she took everyone’s advice and hit the road! That would be the greatest gift of all, don’t you agree? A Christmas miracle!!! And the angels would get their wings and all that happy holiday stuff.

  34. Ichigo says:

    Sorry but did you just bring a so called god into this? Just because people are being healthy and masterbating you are going to condem people for this you upity bitch! get over yourself and this god you so worship. . . .we are not stupid just because we don’t believe in god or whatever fucking crap that makes you so delusional! And it’s god fearing IDIOTS like you that make people feel guitly and insecure because apparently masterbating is wrong!!! there are people that are killing in the name of their religion . . . .i think that is STUPID and wrong!! bah

  35. how to grow taller 4 idiots says:

    darlene, you are the only one getting tired of this blog. And that’s because you haven’t gotten it through your little head yet that this is an ANTI-HK blog. The rest of us come here because we like to hear HKH’s rants about all the useless HK crap Sanrio is selling these days.

  36. Luci says:

    How much it will be sold?
    How the term of payment?

  37. Ann says:

    I do love HK, but I have to draw the line here. Cause I don’t think I could ever look HK in the face again if I used it to get off! LOL
    I do think the vibrator is cute though and if anybody wants to use it for that reason then it’s their business ;)

    @ Ichigo : thank you for standing up for freethinkers! Not everyone believes in a god or follows a religion and it should NEVER be forced on anyone! Besides it’s healthy to masturbate ;)

  38. BUTTER says:

    i want one!

  39. chadhnnbbo says:

    I guess there’s nothing wrong with how the people use it. They bought it anyway. And using a vibrator is not new to us. Another thing, if it was intended only as “shoulder massager”, why was it designed like that? We all have a broad shoulder, it should’ve been designed as something like bigger or something that is not in cylinder shape. My point is, whatever we bought, already belongs to us. And we’ve got a full authority on that product.

  40. saad9977 says:

    Ducky”, I will have to look into that…

    The people getting all bent out of shape over the use of a formerly child-exclusive character being used as a personal massager need to get one. I think maybe getting their rocks off would help them let-up a little bit. Sheesh.

  41. Heather says:

    Ok, Darlene, you need to leave the Hello Kitty Haters alone obviously you don’t belong here and no one here likes you.
    So why don’t you just take your little Hello Kitty comments and shove them up your hairy little ass!

  42. Cali says:

    I bought one of those “shoulder massagers” in a London Adult Shop in NYC. . .for $2O (;

    Yet never used it on my shoulders. . . . .tehehe <3

  43. Candace says:

    For the people who think this isn’t for masturbation, and think that people are trying to make the Sanrio company look bad -hint hint- well your wrong. If you actually took the time to look at the package, it says MASTURBATOR. Do your reasearch before posting something like that.

  44. chrissy says:

    I want one nah i want them all lol give me give me pleassssssse!

  45. ace says:

    what did people expect…she is a bad pussy cat! lmao

    • Pamela says:

      I know I’m guilty of loving hello kitty to a point of ridiculousness but even I have my boundaries. No way in hell am I pushing that little kitty up in junk. Having the original for collector purposes..fine but using it..just plain weird and wrong. lol. Also, as the one gentleman stated..function over form for sure.
      PS-the guy who brings his to strip clubs…please, tell me it’s not actually used by the strippers..if it is, I hope it’s at least sterilized between uses..dear god I hate to think how much pussy that pussy has seen.

  46. thierry says:

    My my.
    You have seen no nothing yet in terms of Hello Hello Kitty Hell.
    French Police have seized numerous HK items at my place including folders and I am presently prosecuted.
    No kidding. Pardon my French.
    Thierry.
