· Sweet and demure Hello Kitty shows her rock-chick side with this pink electric guitar (also available in black)
· Purr-fect for budding rock stars, the all-wood guitar is based on the classic Fender design and features the smiling feline on pickguard

Well…maybe it’s not wrong if you have a Bonnie Raitt or Joan Jett wannabee hanging around your house. That would be the only reason, though. I still can't imagine Joan Jett playing one.

Update: I left out a key piece of information when I first put this post up… the e-mail narrative. Here t’is:

Dear Customer,

We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated Woodstock Percussion American Slide Whistle or other products in the Toys > Music category have also purchased Fender Squier Hello Kitty Strat, Pink. For this reason, you might like to know that Fender Squier Hello Kitty Strat, Pink is now available. You can order yours for just $199.99 ($133.00 off the list price) by following the link below.

Yep. I bought SN3 a slide whistle. I’m sure The Second Mrs. Pennington thanks me over and over again for that. But, Hey! It was the least I could do…


  1. I had to laugh when I saw that! I know that little girls play the guitar, too, but I can imagine any girl wanting a Hello Kitty guitar. Still, stranger things have happened.

  2. I am with Becky I laughed too! Except I pictured you playing it. It does not really go with your image though. We are all thankful for that! ;)

  3. I kind of thought it was cute and can just picture GBN1 jammin' out.

  4. I'd buy one just to hang on the wall---what a great conversation piece!

  5. Well I must say, that first review on this little piece of work had me laughing!
    Lou, you need this!! After all isn't it kitty season at your house right now? :)

  6. wait - is it wronger than a Hello Kitty vibrator???

  7. You bought SN3 a slide whistle ... you are indeed a warped and vengeful creature, BP. Dontchya love it?
    But she WILL get you back, you know.

  8. I asked Ch'ree if she wanted that guitar. She said she liked the pink, didn't care for the Hello Kitty. LOL!

  9. Well, I'm glad a few of y'all got a laugh out of this. And Deborah... I could see this as a piece of "art." Just not around here.

    Phlegmmy: My answer to your Q is "yes, the guitar IS wronger!" I guess it's ultimately a matter of taste, eh?

    Lin sez: But she WILL get you back, you know.

    I doubt it. And SHE started it, ya know! Big-ass, semi-ironic grin ===> ;-)

    Jenny: Ch'ree has good taste. Ya done good!

  10. I'm thinking I better not let Cara see this she will want one! LOL I think SN#3 needs a drum set also, and a fiddle.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
