Hello Kitty Skateboard £6.49 @ Sainsbury's

7 November 2012

Sainsbury's are selling this Hello Kitty skateboard for half price - £6.49 instead of £12.99.

Well there's a thing: a Hello Kitty skateboard!  I'm not sure whether my surprise is a sad indictment of prevailing gender stereotyping or not, but I was surprised to see a Hello Kitty skateboard.

Skateboards are for boys, Hello Kitty is for girls and girls don't 'do' skateboarding - they play with pink plastic play kitchens, vacuum cleaners and pretend to iron clothes *scowl*

All scowling aside, you don't see many girls skateboarding but I LOVE that they have the option to have a girly Hello Kitty skateboard should any little Hello Kitty fan decide to give it a go.

A friend of mine had a skateboard, she was fantastic at it - I was absolutely rubbish!  More practice was definitely required but I wasn't about to rush out and buy one for myself - I really was that shocking at it, I knew it would never be for me.

Standard home delivery takes between three and five days and will cost you and additional £3.95, or you can arrange to collect your Hello Kitty skateboard for free from your nearest Sainsbury's store.
