Sanrio x The Coop Idea
Hong Kong lifestyle brand The Coop Idea has collaborated with Sanrio on a range of tech devices. The collection stars icons like Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars, as well as the lesser known Marumofubiyori. Their images adorn wireless earbuds, wireless chargers, power banks and watch straps.
The collection is available on The Coop Idea’s website.
Sanrio BEANS+ True Wireless Earbuds
Sanrio x The Coop Idea’s BEANS+ True Wireless Earbuds let you ride the train in style with your favourite Sanrio characters peeking out of your ears. They offer up to 63 hours of play time on the go (based on 2 hours of play time per day) and are water resistant.
There are 2 case designs for every character so you can switch up the covers depending on your mood. The first Hello Kitty case is cheery and colourful, with the cat surrounded by red and yellow tulips. The second case is more classic and minimalist, with the outline of Hello Kitty, tulips and her milk jar.
My Melody fans can choose between the first design, with polka dots on the sides, and another version featuring the bunny playing alongside a friend.
While the Hello Kitty and My Melody earbuds have the same motif on both sides, the Little Twin Stars sees Kiki and Lala’s faces on the left and right. One of the cases has pastel pink and green on the sides to match their hair, while the other is in full pastel pink with an illustration of the Little Twin Stars and their friends.
