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!

  4. Kim says:

    LOL…Well…maybe…you can kinda make her out just a tad.

    Maybe you can’t make her with cinnamon raisin toast?

    Anywho…have a FABULOUS race this weekend. Have tons of fun and run really fast!

    LOL I got this toaster as a wedding gift (my husband was not excited) and everytime I use it I wait for hello kitty and she always lets me down :(

  6. Cindy says:

    have a great race! wow, major disappointment on the toaster- it just left you with an undertoasted middle.

  7. Denise says:

    Oh my gosh…that is so funny! Maybe you should write in a complaint!

  8. Alisa says:

    Sad! I remember loving the Sanrio store at the mall in Junior High. How disappointing!

    Good luck this weekend…hope you are going to post pictures of your race shirt. I always love to see what others are wearing. =)

  9. Tara Gibson says:

    bad results, cute toaster : )
    good luck in your race!

  10. BeachRunner says:

    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.

  11. That Pink Girl says:

    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. :)

  12. aron says:

    good luck this weekend!!!!!

  13. Mojito Maven says:

    LAME!!! Things like that toaster never work out how you think they will. Good luck this weekend!!!!!

  14. Tami says:

    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.

  15. Emily says:

    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!

  16. amric1409 says:

    Hey! That toaster is SOO cute but what a disappointment.

    I’m training for my first half-marathon in May and I’ve been reading all the running blogs I can and I just stumbled on yours! Can’t wait to read about your race this weekend, good luck!

  21. Marathon Maritza says:

    That is the saddest excuse for a Hello Kitty if I’ve ever seen one! :(


  22. X-Country2 says:

    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.

  23. Stuart says:

    Ah, oh well, just enjoy the toast and make sure to have another toast at the end of the race this weekend that you are going to ROCK AND ROLL!

  24. Marlene says:

    Bummer about the toaster! Neat idea, but what a flop. :(

    Have fun at SC!

  25. Tara says:

    Sad news about the toaster :( Good luck at your race this weekend!!! :)

  26. ilovesteaks says:

    Have you tried it with regular white bread? But, man… that’s just a bit too much cuteness for food. =) Anyways, see you on Saturday and Sunday!

  27. Tom Ritchie says:

    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.

  28. Run Mommy says:

    Well now that is a shame..I would send a nasty note to the mfg. Good luck this weekend and have a great time!

  40. Steve Stenzel says:

    That toast is cracking me up. Hope you kicked butt this weekend!

  43. Carolina Girl says:

    LOL That is hilarious! It was worth a shot though :)

    Just noticed something…you have got to tell me how you get your teeth so white, girl! They are sparkling! :)

    Thanks for the tanning tip…the Jergens is working the best so far!

  44. Adam says:

    hahahaha. Wow, for some reason I found the toast very very funny.

  45. lilhlfpint says:

    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!

  46. Lulu says:

    Love your blog! This made me laugh out loud, so sorry the toaster wasn’t up to par!

  47. Danielle Runs says:

    omg i stumbled across your blog from other runners who blog…

    i swear im getting fired from work because i can’t quit indulging in all your delcious writing!

    this post just put me over the top, i’m literally LOL @ work and feel like the biggest dork.

    you are great!!!

    I also loved the dear Target letter!

    thanks for the laughs and smiles :)

  48. RamonaQ says:

    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.

  49. Anonymous says:

    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.
