30 Sanrio-Inspired Innovations

From Cutesy Cartoon Scents to Feline Humiliation Helmets

— July 20, 2010 — Fashion
These Sanrio-inspired innovations point out the Japanese company's continuing influences on our current consumer market. Bringing cutesy cartoons into modern-day fashions, accessories, and even love seats, these different features definitely manage to bring out the child in all its fans.

From Sanrio skateboards to Hello Kitty nail polish, these Sanrio-inspired innovations take childhood cartoons to a whole new level.

Implications - Saturated in Asian culture, Sanrio is now becoming even more mainstream in Westward nations. Sanrio has become its own genre of pop culture and its influence on the mainstream will only increase as countries like China grow economically. Whether you like Hello Kitty or not, you're going to be seeing a lot more of it soon.
