Every year ,the ever-popular Hello Kitty is back at McDonald’s, 2005 as four cute stationery collectibles resembling pretty make-up items. And she’s accompanied by four Sanrio Shinkansen characters, modelled after Japan’s bullet train.

Starting March 24, McDonald’s offered a Hello Kitty or Shinkansen collectible with every McDonald’s Happy Meal purchase. There are eight items to collect – the Hello Kitty Nail Polish Stamper, Lipstick Pen, Compact Memo Kit and Make Up Case as well as four different Shinkansen trains – Hikar, Komachi, Nozomi and Max Yamabiko.



Make Hello Kitty stamp imprints with the Nail Polish Stamper, which looks like a nail polish bottle. Turn the top of the Stamper to switch between red and blue stamps. The Hello Kitty Lipstick Pen looks like a tiny lipstick on a key ring. Twist the “lipstick” and it turns into a pen and dispenses Hello Kitty stickers.

Shaped like Hello Kitty’s face, the Hello Kitty Compact Memo Kit combines the functions of a compact mirror and a memo kit. Open it to find a vanity mirror, note pads and a crayon for making tiny notes. Pretty in pink, translucent shimmering plastic, the Hello Kitty Make Up Case is adorned with a Hello Kitty clasp and can double as a handbag and container for the other collectibles.


The adorable Shinkansen trains come in four designs and functions. When wound up, Hikar stops in-between movement to mimic train stops, and Komachi speeds off like a bullet. Nozomi randomly moves left or right, while Max Yamabiko travels in circles. Collect all four to form a mega train set, which can move in different ways, depending on which train is placed in front.
