Summer is in full swing! Now that the pools are open and the sun is shining, it is time to make a splash! What better time to stock up on some super cute swim essentials than now?!
Hello Kitty has joined forces with Arena to create a line of bright swimsuits that you won’t be able to keep your paws off of! But beware… don’t let your kids see this or you will be headed to the shops faster than you can say she sells seashells by the seashore!
The kids’ suits were by far my favourite! I was left remembering back to a day when the Hello Kitty pencil case ruled my world and money was a non-issue as I bartered for goods with kitten-shaped erasers! Now your little ones can indulge in this cheerful cat with suits, towels and even teeny kiddie sized flip-flops.
While the “models” were more interested in eating brownies with Hello Kitty’s signature red bow than actually modelling, they still managed to sell me on a few things! I knew in an instant that the little red cape was to be the kid gift of choice for any birthday party this summer! There were also come cute swim shirts to protect your sweetie from the harsh midday sun… plus matching swimming caps.
If you were feeling a bit left out thinking this was only for the tiny tots then rejoice! There are plenty of suits for mama and babe to coordinate. You can even sport some Diamond Jubilee pride in the Union Jack printed suit!
But if you think Hello Kitty is best left to the kittens rather than the cats, then take a peek at these more mature versions! I loved the bold bikini, which is practically made for working on a tan. Or if you prefer to keep things under wraps, then check out this sweet tankini; this would be perfect to keep a baby bump out of the sun. There were also a few more conservative versions with an attached skirt so you are sure to find something that fits your style and comfort level.
While you’re swimsuit shopping for you and your little ones, check out all the adorable Hello Kitty water accessories too! At Arena you can stock up on goggles, swim caps, towels, waterproof bags, and tented beach mats!
Hello Kitty is sure to bring a smile to the young and young at heart! So take a trip down memory lane and to your local Arena store and bring back that feeling of your carefree childhood. Even if you now have bills to pay and mouths to feed, at least the kid in you (and your own kids) can play by the pool in style!
