Sanrio Throws Back to 1982

Courtesy of Sanrio and Buzzfeed:  You Will Want Everything From This 1982 Sanrio Catalog.

Iron Lace had scanned a vintage 1982 Sanrio’s retailers catalog.  I agree with buzzed feed, while Hello Kitty has changed many of the offering had remain the same over the years.  I found the Robby Rabbit line interesting. Also interesting are the prices the 1982 plushies.   Not everything that is vintage Sanrio can commands higher prices because of Mr. Shintaro Tsuji careful management of the band so Sanrio items do not become a fad like the Bennie Babies bubble.
