Hello Kitty Backpack Does Double Duty as a Hoodie

kittyI’m not sure how the hooded backpack hasn’t caught on more, but maybe a dose of Hello Kitty can improve its fortunes.

Hot Topic is now selling a Hello Kitty Face Hooded Backpack, a white backpack with a hood attached to the shoulder straps. Both backpack and hood have the peering visage of one Hello Kitty. More importantly, cat ears come out of the top of the hood, so that’s pretty much a clinched sale right there. Getting to replace your hoodie with a backpack, so your hood doesn’t get all bunched up under your backpack is just icing on the cake.

Proving that it’s never too early for back to school shopping, the Hello Kitty Face Hooded Backpack is available now on Hot Topic for $34.50.
