The cartoonish sign decking the store’s exterior sets the tone for what’s inside at this kid-friendly gift shop. In the front section, there is Hello Kitty, well, everything. The whimsical white creature appears on notebooks, in the form of large plush characters ($20–$30), and on mugs, lunchboxes and toothbrush holders. Other gift items—most are suited for children’s birthday parties—include folding-crane origami kits ($1.95), teeny “message bottles” holding miniature scrolls and colorful paper umbrellas. At the back of the space, tightly packed racks hold ornately designed, silky robes (that still feel a bit scratchy) ($27), slippers ($8.99) and even kung fu shoes.
