After making her stateside debut over 35 years ago, Hello Kitty finally has to share the spotlight with a new adorable pooch. Meet Rebecca Bonbon. As the newest creation from Yuko Shimizu, she’s got some big shoes to fill. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peak at the full line of clothes, accessories and toys and meet the Hello Kitty creator in person! This black and white French Bulldog is sure to be a hit. The designs are cute, playful and appeal to a wide age range (I know I wanted some of it!).

Along with a full fashion line, Rebecca Bonbon also has her own Back to School gear. Featuring backpacks, purses, stationery and much more, she’s sure to make an appearance this fall at hallways around the country. Tweens and Teens alike might also recognize the spokesperson for the line, Jennette McCurdy, from Nickelodeon’s iCarly.

Check out the full line exclusively at Sears and Kmart to get Back to School Cool.
