In 2013, Swarovski is making some changes to the Hello Kitty lineup.  There are a couple new kitties on the catwalk, and several other kitties are taking the exit ramp.

Swarovski and Hello Kitty fanatics will be excited to see the two new felines now available for purchase online:

The Swarovski Hello Kitty 2013 introductions have a slightly lower price point than the original lineup from 2011….$150 (for the 2013 cats) vs  $205 (original cat figurines), so that should be great news for our pocket books!

 

And effective just last month, that very original lineup of Hello Kitty figurines officially retired.  So more good news for our pocket book… they are now on sale at 50% off at the Swarovski shoppe:

So, three Swarovski Cat Hello Kitty figurines remains yet unmentioned….

  • Swarovski Hello Kitty Gold Bow – This feline friend was added to the lineup in 2012, so she is still relatively new to the kitty cat group.
  • Swarovski Hello Kitty Santa –  A festive Hello Kitty that is sort of “out-of-season” at this point.
  • Swarovski Hello Kitty Hearts – This kitty was a limited edition in 2012 and can no longer be purchased in the online shoppe.  For collectors who may have missed out, the Hello Kitty Hearts Limited Edition can be found at the Crystal Exchange America web site in the Hello Kitty category.

So let’s give the nice new Swarovski Hello Kitty crystal figurines a warm welcome to Swarovski Cat clan!
