Hello Kitty fans, rejoice: The globally loved cartoon little girl, who was created by the Japanese company Sanrio, can now be welcomed into your kitchen, painted onto two limited edition Zojirushi appliances. This Hello Kitty Limited Edition Collection features a never-before-seen Hello Kitty pattern that’s been designed exclusively for Zojirushi, plastered onto an automatic rice cooker and warmer and stainless 16-ounce travel mugs. 

Although Zojirushi appliances have been a staple in Japan for over 100 years, Zojirushi America has only been in the U.S. market for some 30 years. So to commemorate Sanrio’s 60th  anniversary, the two companies teamed up to launch a Hello Kitty collaboration. This adorable limited edition collection is exclusive to the U.S. and Canada, and is available for purchase at a number of online vendors, including Amazon.

Zojirushi is one of the leading makers of rice cookers, so it only makes sense that the quality is stellar. This 5.5-cup rice cooker boasts gold Hello Kitty graphics against a white machine. Built with one-touch operation, the rice cooker is easy to use, thanks to the detachable and washable inner lid and easy-to-clean nonstick cooking pan. Plus, the rice cooker is replete with a measuring cup, spatula, and spatula holder. Buy it on Amazon or directly through SanrioBuy Now
