Sanrio, Hello Kitty, and MLB
Sanrio, Inc., best known for global pop icon Hello Kitty, expanded its Major League Baseball-themed collection for the 2014 baseball season to highlight all 30 MLB teams, including and of course our beloved Atlanta Braves!!
There is already a variety of co-branded Hello Kitty/MLB merchandise available at Turner Field, all of which are Sanrio and MLB’s way of helping to promote Major League Baseball, but also to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty!
As an adult, you may not be at all interested in Hello Kitty merchandise, but you might also be interested to know how many grownups ARE interested in such things! I recently read with strange curiosity about Bronies, adults who almost religiously follow My Little Pony! Yes, you heard that correctly. Don’t believe me? Check out the Wiki on that! I’m not aware of any movement of adults religiously following Hello Kitty, but they’re probably out there, and just haven’t been given an official moniker someone could Wiki about.

Partnering with Sanrio for this contest, we have some free giveaways to that one lucky fan who loves the Braves and Hello Kitty, or who has kids that do. We have a Hello Kitty Patch, a Hello Kitty Pin, and a cool Hello Kitty Fan, perfect for manually keeping yourself cool at a June Braves’ game!
What do you need to do to win? We’re not throwing a baseball quiz your way, or asking you to look up any obscure historical facts or stats. Instead, in keeping with the childlike wonder and theme of Hello Kitty, we’re asking you one simple question: How does being an Atlanta Braves’ fan bring out the kid in you?
From the time I was a child, baseball has been a part of my life, and there is no other sports, to me, that brings out the kid in a grownup than the great and historic game of baseball. I still feel like a kid every time I go to a game, listen to the sounds of the ball park, enjoy hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy, and cokes, and just take it all in!
So, what are you waiting for? Tell us in a few brief sentences how you become a kid when you enjoy our beloved Braves, and you could win! We’ll pick the sole winner, then send you the cool Hello Kitty/MLB gifts, free of charge.
