Not one, not two, but THREE new colorful camera collaborations are coming your way, courtesy of Sanrio and Retrospekt! We’ve partnered with the iconic Japanese brand several times in the past, and we’re very excited to work with them once again to bring you a timeless trio of Polaroid cameras.
Up first, we have a ravishing red and yellow camera featuring none other than Hello Kitty herself. While we’ve seen Hello Kitty on Polaroid cameras a few times in the past, this is a brand-new design and color scheme inspired by early Hello Kitty designs from the 1970s. On the camera body, you’ll find two Hello Kitty characters hanging out near a rainbow — and along the film shield, there are adorable illustrations of tulips, apples and milk jugs. Every time you grab the camera, you’ll feel nostalgic for the calm, carefree days of childhood.
Making her Polaroid camera debut is Kuromi! Born on Halloween, the spooky cutie is sporting her signature jester’s hat, and her spiky tail is peeking out behind her. The purple, pink and black camera body is the perfect balance of girly and goth! Kuromi fans will also notice her favorite pink skull located right next to the flash. It will make your subjects smile every time you shoot!
Finally, if you can’t choose a favorite character from Hello Kitty’s world, you can have your cake and eat it too (yum!) with the Hello Kitty & Friends Polaroid camera. The pastel pink and baby blue Polaroid body has Hello Kitty, Pom Pom Purin, Bad Badtz-Maru, My Melody, Tuxedosam, Kuromi and Kero Kero Keroppi all together next to the lens. Plus, the film shield features a timeless piece of advice: Enjoy the little things. We couldn’t agree more.
Every camera is assembled right here in Milwaukee, WI. Like all cameras created at Retrospekt, each Sanrio Polaroid camera is made with vintage internal parts that are deconstructed and restored by our skilled team of repair technicians. The revamped internals are then covered in new plastic shells, and the camera is ready for another life of photo-taking.If you can’t wait to get your hands on one of these camera cuties, head over to Sanrio’s website.
