Gah, I want an edgy Hello Kitty! top for a child...

...I'm doomed, aren't I? My younger daughter wants a HK top for Christmas. She is 4 (but very tall, more like a 6yo) and all the HK stuff in her age group is very saccharine. My older daughter has a really cool grey HK top with little studs on it (given to her by an Italian relative): is there anything similar out there? Anything other than mute Hello Kitty staring blankly out of a pink background?

Have you tried H&M? They often have quite quirky Hello Kitty tees.

Sadly, not at the moment. I've tried M&S, H&M, Debenhams, Next and Asda. Is there anywhere else? I don't catalogue shop - are there any good online or catalogue stores that might have something?

Forever 21 do some HK from age 6 which are a bit less candy pinkesque than the usual giels tops

Worth checking Amazon?

Love the black one, sausage!

For the first time ever (or at least for the past 3 years) Zara doesn't have them in stock. But they do have other cool Hello Kitty stuff, not too girly at all, here. I love the hi-tops!

I've a feeling Primark had some Christmas Hello Kitty teeshirts, which were a bit different. But I wasn't paying them a lot of attention.

I have just discovered Hello Kitty vans trainers. Wow they are so cute smile

I am such a fan, i have a tattoo of her, yes a real one

Anyway! they could be some on the offical website(sanrio) might cost abit more though.

Children salon(american) have a gorgeous one for with sequences! $30 so be about £25ish. i wish i was a child

I also try ebay, you sometimes get lovely hello kitty tops with tags.

Uniqlo (Japan) has always had some quite cool Hello Kitty t-shirts. DD has this one from earlier this year, but I'm not sure what is available in the UK - they do have some shops and an online store here. Worth having a look online, perhaps?

Those Uniqlo t-shirts are great but I can't even see a children's section on their UK site. I saw a great sequinned top on the Target website but they don't ship to the UK sad and then I saw a great top on Amazon but not in her size (have written email to see if it comes in 6ish and is being restocked... This is sooo much more of a chore than it should be but thanks for all the suggestions, keep them coming. I'll check out Primark this week.

Sainsbury's sometimes has them.

shame they don't have clothes on their website.

WineGless Mon 12-Nov-12 21:21:42

Sainsburys have got black and grey Hello Kitty range

hurricanewyn Mon 12-Nov-12 21:24:13

I was going to add Sainsbury's too - their stuff at the mo is nice. Have you one with clothes near you?

JennyPiccolo Mon 12-Nov-12 21:26:52

M&s has some hello kitty stuff. Saw a bright green jumper with hello kitty on it in there today. Wasn't saccharine, but dunno if it could be described as edgy either. Was quite fun, though, and they might have other stuff.

JennyPiccolo Mon 12-Nov-12 21:27:50

Oh, sorry, you said m&s.

lalalonglegs Mon 12-Nov-12 21:29:07

Black/grey = perfect. There is a big Sainsbury's with clothes about five miles away, I'll go and look.

have a look at the Brora website for some lovely hello kitty dresses and blouses. I love the pinafore. ( there are also some outrageously priced Cashmere jumpers and accessories, just on the off chance you have a few hundred quid to throw at the problem..)

H&m have a grey one on their website, not edgy though. They may have more choice instore.

I bought my Dd a mustard yellow hello kitty top, featuring an Apple from Asda. It really is nice quality and washes well.
