Every day, tech companies are trying to top the latest smartphone innovations, but Ola and Sanrio are taking it back to the 90s with a Hello Kitty flip phone. Released during a time where smartphones are the ruling roost, the Japanese telecommunications company is battling advancement with adorableness.

The Hello Kitty flip phone eliminates everything popular cell phones can offer and instead provides a simplistic design inspired by Hello Kitty. While consumers can't take pictures or update their social media accounts from this phone, it does feature a 1.54-inch color screen with a 240 x 240 resolution and it is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Hello Kitty flip phone isn't the most tech-friendly device of today but it makes a great starter phone for small children.
