I'm a big lover of dark things and a small lover of cute things so how could I resist buying a plush which included them both? well I couldn't so I made no hesitation when buying this Halloween HK bat. I've never hidden the fact that I'm a lover and collector of Hello kitty plushies and item's despite being hounded by my friends about it. About a year ago I got fed up and sold a lot of my plush collection which I now regret so I'm trying to build it back up again and I thought this was a beautiful plush to start my collection with again.
I bought my bat from off Ebay which is a similar price to websites selling this anyway, I bought it from there instead because the postage was a little cheaper and I like to save as much money as I can. This was still £15.95 this is roughly the price you should expect when buying a small hello kitty plush teddy anyway and the price can also depend on the design and not the size. This Plush out of all of them instantly caught my eye, bats are one of my most favorite animals and creatures whether they're in real life or in pictures/films etc. So having a plush that combines two of my most favorite things is the best thing in the world for me.
The hello kitty Halloween bat is 15cm in height so you can imagine this is a small teddy with a big price. This particular plush has been made by ty beanies and the tags can be found on her side underneath her left wing. It states to remove these before giving them to a child, but being a collector I like to keep all the original tagging and what not on them. It also states that this is for ages 3+ so it's a good job i'm 20 although I can't see any harm in this being placed in a cot or a room of a child younger than 3 because this has no small parts and no attachments.
The Halloween bat is made from a silky soft fleece like material and there is only two colours on this and that is black and orange, the kitty itself is black along with the wings and her strapped play suit, bow, nose and whiskers are all orange. Her play suit isn't separate like on some plushies her outfit is separate, this looks like the fleece has just been dyed a different colour which is fine by me because it's really neat and well done. The head is considerably larger than the body and her feet are set in a sitting position so you can sit this down anywhere and not have to worry about her falling over. Her expression is the same and the full plush is the same as every other one except for her outfit and the fact she has wings. The wings themselves have no wiring or anything to keep them staying straight out right, the do stick out but are a little floppy but I'm fine with this because she sits in front of my bigger hello kitty plush teddies on a shelf.
This plush is very durable I've only had it a few months now but it's extremely well sewn together I haven't had any rips or any damages like I have had with some of my other teddies. The bow is also still infact because I've found if moved around a lot of handled a lot the bow is usually the first to come off but this one has stayed put, it does state on the tags that this is surface washable, whether this means run over with a damp cloth or machine washable I don't know but I've never had to do either.
Overall this is a beautiful eye catching plush and one I pride myself on owning in my collection, she sits at the front of a shelf with all the bigger hello kitties so she stands out from the crowd, and it is a large crowd of them, despite my friends thinking my collection is silly i've had many compliments on this Halloween bat especially. This is perfectly fine for children to have or play with they may even giggle because it has wings. The price is very, pricey and some people I feel even collectors would stick their nose up at the price, this is something you could probably win out of a toy grabbing machine and I feel the price should of been a little lower but I don't have anything against it which is why I bought it and still love it to this day.
