Now Hello Kitty just wants cold, hard cash

Forget the pretense--just hand over the money to its ATM.


Acting in typical expansionist fashion, the Sanrio empire began targeting our finances through a branded credit card a few months back. But apparently its insatiable needs are even more urgent than originally thought, for now it's going directly after our cash.

That's right: There's now a Hello Kitty ATM bank. The miniature teller machine even comes with its own "cash card," as Hello Kitty Hell explains. But don't be fooled: We suspect that it will provide only deposits and no withdrawals.
