In fact, all year long, fans of Major League Baseball have been able to purchase all sorts of Hello Kitty-themed merchandise, like tote bags, laptop cases, pouches, plushes, and more. Dodgers and Giants fans were even able to pick up promo Hello Kitty items at select games over the summer.
But, just in case you're headed to Yankee Stadium on August 24 for their game against the Chicago White Sox, there's one more opportunity to pick up some Hello Kitty swag. The first 18,000 guests aged 14 and younger will receive a bobblehead featuring Kitty happily cheering for the Yankees.
As for older Hello Kitty fans who are bummed out at the age restrictions, don't worry—there will probably be plenty of White Sox fans putting them on eBay.
Last year, Sanrio dipped its toes in the water with Dodgers, Angels, and Padres collaborations; it expanded its MLB collection this season to include all 30 teams.
