Sanrio fans rejoice, a truck loaded with Hello Kitty merchandise is scheduled to stop by the Tysons Corner Center mall tomorrow (Saturday).

The truck is scheduled to stop in the mall’s plaza between 10 a.m.-8 p.m. to offer “supercute treats and merch” while supplies last.

The Hello Kitty truck started in 2014 at the Hello Kitty Convention. Since then, two Hello Kitty trucks have roamed the streets and byways of the United States, offering everything from Hello Kitty macarons to chubby bunny bows.

The Hello Kitty website advises visitors to arrive earlier rather than later.

“Items on the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck are also limited as it can only hold so many wonderful items at a time,” according to Sanrio, the brand of Japanese characters that includes Hello Kitty. “Please consider visiting earlier in the day to ensure that you’ll find what you’re looking for!”

Customers will be asked to wear a face mask, stay six feet apart from other patrons and staff, wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after coming into contact with frequently touched surfaces, and remain at home if they have a cough or fever.

Staff will wear masks and gloves while in the truck, and regularly touched objects, including counters and payment readers, will be disinfected every 30 minutes.

  • Stainless rainbow thermos
  • Hello Kitty Cafe cookie plush
