  17. WAAAHhh! I know some girl friends who would kill to stay in that room and take photos! I've never been a giant fan but I did covet a few hellokitty items as a child, for one, this giant 3d alarm clock that my dad got me! I do love the face of hello kitty, i'm attracted to toys that have that blank face!
