Hello Kitty Toast

I love photo Fridays and today I had some planned photos to share with you until I had my Hello Kitty Toast this morning.

My roommate brought this great offering to the place when we moved in. It’s the Hello Kitty Toaster. I thought for sure this thing was going to be awesome. It’s suppose to make Hello Kitty pictures on your toast, like the one below.

I waited and waited to get my toast to pop up for breakfast this morning. I was excited to see the picture on my cinnamon raisin toast. This is what popped up.
Wow, talk about disappointing. Those are just two white blobs, nothing even resembling her cute bow or whiskers or eyes or anything. Hello Kitty, you’ve let me down. I almost thought it was too good to be true and now we know it is. Sadly, I will just have white blobs on my toast now.
Thanks for all the good luck wishes for this weekend. I’m starting to get nervous but I know it’s a good nervous. I just am going to put in a nice easy 4-6 miler tomorrow to get loosened up in the morning and then finish cleaning and painting my desk, which I will also have pictures of next week. Gosh, next week is going to be exciting for all you guys with my giveaway, race report, and pictures of my desk!
Good luck to all those racing this weekend, even if your not racing at Surf City! I’m excited to meet/see many of you at the race though so look for me! The weather should be perfect as long as the Santa Ana’s don’t kick up and it is going to be a great day for running. Tonight I’m going to finish making my shirt and painting and am looking forward to leisurely hanging out alone. :)
Have a great weekend!
And the final review of the Hello Kitty Toaster = Hell No!

    ROFL. I need to hide your post and pics from Allie (my 6 year old). If she saw it, she would SOOOOO want that lame-oh toaster.

    Good luck with the race. You will do great. Try to relax and just enjoy your Hello Kitty toast.

    I have the same toaster! We got it as a wedding gift from my (then) 11 year old cousin. Ha! We had the same blobby issues. What a disapointment. She sure is cute on the counter though. :)

    we had one of those toasters, give it another try, it depends on the bread you are using. i miss ours, we just have a regular old gray one now.

    I had a HK toaster for some time too (but the previous version to yours). It worked okay but never quite as much as I’d hoped. Maybe stick with the HK waffle maker or even vacuum?

    Again – good luck this wknd!

    Boo to the toaster. Maybe another kind of bread would be better? The cinnimon swirl mucks things up a bit.

    Good luck this weekend. Being nervous is a great sign, I like to think.

    My daughter has a Hello Kitty backpack and would love the toaster. Too bad it doesn’t work. I was hoping it would help her eat her toast in the morning. Good Luck this weekend! Can’t wait to hear about it.

    Aw, I’m sorry about the non-Hello Kitty toast.

    My Mum bought me a Mickey Mouse one a few years ago for Christmas. For some random reason, she decided she would try it out before she wrapped it for me. I guess her results must have looked a lot like yours because she returned it and I think I got Mickey pajamas instead.

    My sister later told me the toast was so awful that my Mum got all upset!

    I’ve had this toaster for a few years, and mine makes a much clearer image. Also, it helps if the bread is pale in colour.

    Okay, I know you posted this ages ago, but I just stumbled across this post and I just have to say – these toasters are a rip off. I got a mickey mouse one that I was SO EXCITED about (it played the theme song when the toast popped up and everything!). But then when I put the toast in nothing happened for about 10 minutes, so I set it to the highest level, and it started smelling like gas/smoke and then MY TOAST CAUGHT ON FIRE. Seriously. I didn’t even know that could happen.
