Combining the classic Hello Kitty figure with medical-related themes, the Dr. Romanelli Hello Kitty toys are a collaboration between the designer, Sanrio, and Medicom Toy.
The collaboration has already resulted in a nurse Hello Kitty, but this particular vinyl design mixes together the beloved Hello Kitty icon with hospital-volunteer apparel, aka the red-and-white jumpers worn by female hospital volunteers (typically referred to as ‘candy stripers’). Stomach surgery is another medical theme in which the Dr. Romanelli Hello Kitty toys incorporate. Two particular figurines are designed with their stomachs cut away to reveal cutesy internal organs.
