When Was Hello Kitty Created
Hello Kitty’s first appearance (on a purse) was introduced in Japan in 1974, and brought to the United States in 1976. Originally aimed at pre-adolescent females.
The love adults have for Hello Kitty has grown as many of those young girls first introduced to Hello Kitty in 1976 are now adults. Several Hello Kitty TV series, targeted towards young children, have been produced.
Hello Kitty is also the main character at the two Japanese Sanrio theme parks, Harmonyland and the indoor Sanrio Puroland. A Hello Kitty cafe is on its way to Orange County, California.
Many of you know that I have a great love for Hello Kitty. What could be more fun, loveable and inspiring then Hello Kitty. Girls of all ages can enjoy Hello Kitty and love her forever.
I love Hello Kitty so much that I created a Hello Kitty LOVE Facebook page. Join me there for fun Hello Kitty treats like these adorable Hello Kitty Easter eggs.
Instant Pot 5-5-5 Method
Now you can boil your eggs in a pan on the stove top of you would like. But I have found sometimes that method leads me to over cooked or under cooked eggs often.
With the Instant Pot 5-5-5 method I get hard boiled eggs that are cooked each and every single time. You don’t have that worry of will your eggs turn out.
- 5 minute cook time
- 5 minute natural release of pressure
- 5 minute ice bath
Look at how easy this method is you guys!
Prep Tools for Hard Boiled Eggs
- Invest in an egg rack for your Instant Pot! If you plan to make eggs often it is totally with buying.
- Tongs are a magical tool to lift out those hot eggs from your Instant Pot as the timer goes off.
- Measuring cup for adding your one cup of water into the Instant Pot!
- Food Prep Bowl for giving your eggs an ice bath after!
Some of these items you might already have on hand. Making eggs in the Instant Pot isn’t hard at all, and will give you awesome results each and every time.
Does Cooking Eggs in Instant Pot Help With Peeling Easier
I have made a lot of hard boiled eggs in my Instant Pot and yes I find they peel easier. So many times I made them on the stove and half the egg peels off when I go to peel them.
With the Instant Pot I tend to get a shell that peels a lot easier and cleaner. It doesn’t seem to stick and rip pieces of egg what off along with it.
Can I Use Food Grade Markers for Hello Kitty Eggs
You can invest in some food grade markers for your Hello Kitty Easter eggs! They have where you can buy individual colors or feel free to buy a variety pack on hand!
If you don’t want to hot glue the bow down, reach for double sided tape instead. Both methods seem to work really well for these Easter eggs.
Do I Need to Refrigerate Hard Boiled Eggs
Yes! I know back in the day hunting hard boiled decorated eggs was very popular, but consuming those eggs was a risk.
You don’t want to eat an egg that has sat out for more than two hours. You run the risk of developing salmonella as bacteria can begin to grow on the eggs as the temperature rises.
If you do give your kids these eggs, place them in the fridge until right before filling their basket. Or toss the eggs that were out so you don’t run the risk of getting sick.
At the end of the day, these Hello Kitty Easter eggs are a fun and easy way to dress up Easter. Step out of the classic dyed eggs and give these designed eggs a try!
I definitely can not claim to be the creator of these eggs as there are many versions circulating the internet but I wanted to recreate them myself to test how easy or complicated they would be. I can happily report that this is an EASY project.
