We are all familiar with Hello Kitty, iconic Japanese designer Yuko Shimizu created 36 years ago. It all started with one illustration that led to a world phenomenon with over five billion dollars in licensing fees per year. Well Yuko has released a new icon, Rebecca Bonbon, a french bulldog that is living the dream in NYC. The website (here) is pretty cute and so is the illustration.
The line is available at Sears and Kmart stores and new products are being shipped for the 2010 Holiday season. Very affordable and great for young and junior girls!
