McDonald's Singapore Hello Kitty Bubbly World

To celebrate Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary, McDonald's is releasing Hello Kitty Bubble world. In this series, Hello Kitty is dressed up as her friends and appearing for the first time shaped like a balloon! Guess what, Singapore is the first to get it!

There are 6 plushies to collect. Hello Kitty is dressed up as puffed versions of Kerokerokeroppi, My Melody, Osaru No Monkichi, PomPomPurin, Tuxedosam and Bad Badtz-maru.

If you're dreading the drama from McD's Hello Kitty sale last year, you can avoid a repeat by placing your orders for the entire set online and getting it delivered to your doorstep by Speedpost. At $80 (inclusive of GST), you're getting the Hello Kitty Bubbly World Collector's set made up of:
- Six individually boxed Hello Kitty Bubbly World plush toys, housed in a protective shipment box
- Six $5 Extra Value MealTM vouchers
- A Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary Certificate, kept in a specially designed folio
Online orders start from Wed, 23 Apr but the estimated delivery dates for both Speedpost and POPstation will be from 28 April to 12 May. That's just wayyy too long!
Also, I am just a little (ok, a lot more than a little) concerned with Singpost's ability to fulfil the orders with sheer volume expected. After all, once bitten, twice shy, and I have definitely been bitten more than once by Singpost's service.
Each customer may purchase a maximum of 3 sets per online transaction and Collector’s Sets are available while stocks last.

The plushies are also available in-stores at staggered dates. It's sold at $4.95 together with each purchase of an Extra Value Meal™. Each customer  is limited to 4 plushies per store visit, while stocks last. Here's the dates for each toy's release:
• Kerokerokeroppi (From 28 Apr)
• My  Melody (From 5 May)
• Osaru No Monkichi (From 12 May)
• PomPomPurin (From 19 May)
• Tuxedosam (From 26 May)
• Bad Badtz-maru (From 2 Jun)

For now, this bunny is definitely set on getting the Badtz-maru. For the rest, they're just not tugging hard enough on my heartstrings... yet.

I'm definitely getting the Bad Badtz-Maru plushie!
