I Had To See These Hello Kitty Play Props, So Now You Will Too
Razer is known for making some of the finest, flashiest gaming gear out there, from the class-leading Basilisk V3 to the incredibly powerful and portable Razer Blade 14. Today, he announces something, well, slightly different. The company has partnered with Sanrio to release a line of Hello Kitty-themed gaming accessories.
You may think I’m making it up, but alas, I’m not. Looked:
There’s a lot to unpack here. As you can see we have a mouse, mouse pad, Bluetooth headphones, chair and lumbar pillow. It’s not just the cat itself featured throughout – other characters from the franchise, including two who I’m told are named Badtz-maru and Keroppi, also make appearances.
You know what? I was ready to roll my eyes at these, but they’re pretty adorable. If you have one of the various hot pink laptops that Razer has released over the years, I think they should go just fine with it. Just make sure you don’t wear bright red near this setup because it’s going to hurt my eyes.
If you want to buy any of them (they are sold separately, so you don’t need to buy everything), you can get the chair for $499, the mouse and pad for $64.99, the headphones for $119.99, and the lumbar pillow for $59.99. If you care about boring things like specs, the chair is a Iskur X with a synthetic leather cover, the mouse is a DeathAdder Essessential with a 6,400 DPI optical sensor, and the headphones are from the Razer Kraken BT line (there’s a regular “Cat Edition” without Hello, too).
These are all a little more expensive than their non-Hello Kitty counterparts, so it’s definitely not the best value – but can you really put a price on the meme potential to fill your gaming setup with? anthropomorphic cats? Now excuse me while I try to convince my employer to let me pay for a cat-themed home office.
