In the market for a fire extinguisher? Neither were we, until we saw these at the Sanrio online store! With three gorgeous designs, there’s never been a better time to decorate and protect your home at the same time.

First up we have the white design, with a pink accent and Hello Kitty in a classic pose. Only this time she seems to be pondering the possibility of impending flame.


The ribbon design is equally cute, with Ms Kitty showing what not to do in the event of a fire: Do not hide behind an oversized ribbon.


The dot design stands out in an appropriate fire engine red.


Proving that Ms Kitty is always looking out for us, these extinguishers weigh only 2.7 kg, making them light enough for elderly residents to use.


Retailing for 9,180 yen (US$89.53) we’re tempted to buy all three. Hello Kitty, you really are a clever marketing tool!
