As a little girl I was in love with Hello Kitty. I had pencils, pens, stationary, purses, keychains, even a trashcan! Basically, when I got older my obsession lessened and eventually disappeared, but there's still a special place in my heart for Hello Kitty and her cute, mouthless smile. To this day, when I come across something from Sanrio, I fall instantly in love. I love that Urban Outfitters has this adorable Hello Kitty Puzzle Head for sale because it's a great piece to remind me of my childhood and looks great in an office, or to entertain younger guests who visit your house. This puzzle is an awesomely cute stocking stuffer or gift for a friend and anyone who spent their youth obsessed with Sanrio will get a kick out of this adorable 3D puzzle! I love the use of pink and white, and Hello Kitty seriously looks adorable! Sure, I don't really need something like this for my house, but I know I must have it! This little kitty is going to become your instant computer desk buddy!Where to Buy - Urban OutfittersPrice - $18.00Who Found It - Ltopiol was the first to add the 'Hello Kitty Puzzle Head' to the Hive.
I remember when I first heard about this game back in November, I had an immediate "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, assuming its release would keep getting delayed much like the show's 6th season. But alas, Project Runway for Nintendo Wii finally hit shelves March 2nd, and its arrival wasn't quite as manically exciting as I thought it was going to be. I don't know if its fashionable target market is just too engrossed in shopping, actually making their own real designs, or just watching the show itself, but personally I think this game looks too cool to overlook. Much like the show, "designers" get challenges -- like create a rockstar's stage outfit or revamp a high school uniform, for example -- and then get to create looks using a multitude of colors, patterns, and "fabrics" to compete in the catwalk showdown. There's even a Wii Balance Board add-on feature that allows you to play as your model and strut your designs down the runway! While I'm still curious as to how your creations are "judged" by e-versions of our favorite members of the PR panel, I'm still intrigued enough to check it out myself! It sounds almost like a fashion-relevant version of the Sims... which means maximum addiction potential!Price: $39.99Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add Project Runway for Nintendo Wii to the Hive.
