I am so excited.... Do you know.... Hello Kitty as the Great Witch of Oz has made her way to Malaysia!
For a sneek peek of the upcoming Oz inspired attraction opening in SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN, Puteri Harbour, Johor on 31st October 2015, the ‘Journey to Oz’ roadshow will kick-start at Quill City Mall, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, from 23rd to 25th October, before making its way to various other states around the country.
Visitors to Quill City Mall will be among the very first to hear the call of the Great Witch to help rescue the enchanted Land of Oz.
The ‘Journey to Oz’ roadshows will tour around the Country to spread Hello Kitty’s call for Heroes as well as bring a part of the Hello Kitty in Oz experience to her fans. Hello Kitty in Oz is a themed attraction brought by SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN.
Inspired by the timeless Wizard of Oz classic, it presents a whimsical fusion of Hello Kitty and the Wizard of Oz, bringing the cast of both stories to life – the first of its kind in South East Asia.
The Hello Kitty in Oz roadshow is specially curated for her fans and their families, who can participate in the Search for Oz – a search and win activity.
Visitors will also enjoy character appearances from Hello Kitty, lucky draws, colouring activities for the children, and a themed setting for photo opportunities.
And I got amazing news for Hello Kitty collectors!! In tandem with this new attraction, SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN will also be opening a special Hello Kitty in Oz retail shop that will carry specially imported , exclusive limited edition Hello Kitty in Oz collectible merchandises.
Don't you think these merchandise are adorable.. you cannot get them anywhere else in the world!!!

“We are in fact the first SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN themed attraction in the world outside of Japan, having officially opened our doors in 2012. I am excited to announce that we have in store a magical experience that bespeaks adventure and the quest to find courage, wisdom, and heart. "
The story behind this is pretty fascinating..... Rumours about "The End of Oz" have the Great Witch (Hello Kitty) worried. Being determined to safeguard the world of Oz, she removes a chapter from the Great Book, hoping to change Oz's ending... Somehow something went wrong along the way when things did not go as planned. The lost chapter results in the malfunction of the Emerald City Machine , which then throw Oz into chaos....
Now, the Great Witch is calling for brave heroes to assemble and travel to Oz to help restore order there.... Guests or "heroes" will have to try solve the puzzles and solve it so that everyone in Oz can have a happy ending....
"Combining the characters and friends from Hello Kitty’s world with aspects from L. Frank Baum’s ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ children’s classic, Hello Kitty in Oz will transport guests to Oz itself – where Hello Kitty takes on the mantle of The Great Witch of Oz. ” said Fahruddin Najumudeen, General Manager of SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN.
With activities suitable for the entire family, Hello Kitty in Oz promises to be a big hit with the young and young at heart.
