Dodgers to give away Hello Kitty bobblehead on July 1

Kitty’s telepathic abilities will solve Tony La Russa’s bullpen phone problem.

The Dodgers announced Thursday that the first 50,000 fans through the gates on July 1 would receive a Hello Kitty Mini Bobblehead. But that’s not all. Not even close:

“In addition, Hello Kitty and her friend Keroppi® will make a special appearance at the Viva Los Dodgers Day festival held in lot 6 two hours prior to game time and Hello Kitty will also throw the ceremonial first pitch.”

The other night I was playing Super Simple baseball with my daughter (there was a thread on BTF about the game a few weeks back) and during the last inning my cat just walked into the field of stuffed animal baseball players. We decided to let him pinch hit for Elephant. He got a single. Cats are good at baseball, the reactions sure come in handy.

Why doesn't Hello Kitty have a mouth? Very disturbing.

Hello Kitty speaks from her heart. She’s Sanrio's ambassador to the world and isn't bound to any particular language.

Seems like you might be sacrificing some power for some speed there. In the right situation I like the move.

I went to a college game at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. The program had an ad for season tickets that said you'd be guaranteed tickets to Vin Scully and Sandy Koufax bobblehead nights. I wonder if one of them will be bumped.

"Oh you didn’t know? Hello Kitty was apparently started when a mother of a child dying of cancer made a pact with the Lord Of The Underworld ™. If The Devil spared her child’s life then in return she would start a toy company that payed homage to him. Makes sense right? I mean who wouldn’t look at Hello Kitty stuff and not think ‘homage to the Devil’?

Another surprisingly depressing urban legend says that Hello Kitty was first drawn by a child of an abusive parent. According to this legend she drew the cat without a mouth because she wanted a character to confide in that couldn’t tell about the abuse and get her in trouble." http://www.thoughts.com/Mutilation/why-doesnt-hello-kitty-have-a-mouth

Disturbing indeed.

Disturbing, yes, but not true.

No Aoi Sakuraba bobblehead? Her manga translates as "True Blue Love". What could be more Dodger than that?

Brilliant marketing plan if it can get a dad to take his daughter to the game. And the fact that it's not limited to the first 10,000 or so, means that there is less chances of a major disappointment happening.

Last year's game required fans to buy tickets online with a certain code and you could only sit in certain sections. My wife (a serious Hello Kitty fan) got a small Dodgers-themed Hello Kitty doll. But there were a lot of people at the game, who didn't get the doll because they didn't have the right kind of ticket. The promotion was added very late in the season.

This year, the Dodgers play the Mets in the Bankruptcy Bowl for Hello Kitty Day.

we were struggling a little to get my just turned 3 daughter to use the potty, but the moment we got her Hello Kitty underwear, she was peeing and pooping all on her own as long as he didn't have to wear the flower underwear. At this rate my seven month old will be potty trained by fall.
