HOSEH LIAO! Sure got 2 grown men fight over the farking soft toy cat again. tongue.gif


The violence that these toys cause in our history during the year 2000, including riots and injuries. Need to standby Ang Chia.

Timeline
1 Jan : McDonald's began its 40-day promotion of Hello Kitty toys, dressed in wedding costumes of different cultures, with its Extra Value Meals. First fight between a doctor and three others erupted because of the promotion.
2 Jan : First report of long queues totalling about 250, 000 to 300, 000 customers, for the soft toys.
6 Jan : Release of Hello Kitty pair in Malay wedding dress.
13 Jan : Seven people in a queue at the Boon Keng Road outlet were injured when a glass door shattered. The glass door was unable to withstand the weight of those pushing against it. The toys in Korean wedding dress were released.
25 Jan : McDonald's announced that these outlets ceased selling the toys: Singapore Turf Club, Chinatown Point and Clementi, next to the NTUC FairPrice supermarket. Sales at its drive-thrus were already stopped.
More than 130 security personnel were hired by McDonald's to patrol its outlets.
27 Jan : Six people were arrested. Three men arrested at the Bangkit Road outlet for rioting. Three other men arrested for disorderly conduct at the Bedok Reservoir, Lion City Hotel and Lot 1 Shopper's Mall outlets. The toys in Japanese wedding dress were released.
28 Jan : 64 more Cisco guards were added to control unruly crowd behaviour at 24 McDonald's outlets.
1 Feb : McDonald's began a new voucher system for the toys. Vouchers were sold to those who wanted to buy the Chinese pair. Customers could buy as many vouchers and collect the dolls in July when announced by McDonald's. The announcement came with a public apology and a $1 redeemable voucher against any McDonald's purchase.
RIP Johnny.

Reminds me many years ago people queued up overnight at mac to buy these toys. I know of some people whose house was full of these, but after some time, they gave them away.

I saw some of these toys at salvation army store! blink.gif

So will we be expecting the craze again??? It starts today!!! tongue.gif


We, who are old enough to remember it (the first craze) laugh.gif

Was it like more than 10 years ago??

I think it will be worse nowadays, the reaction of people collecting these items.

More than 10 years ago, when people were more courteous and polite, and less overcrowded than today - there were already fights over the kittys...

Fast-forward to today's more badly-behaved public... can we expect worse??

I recall queuing around midnight at the macs at suntec, because a new pair of kitties were to be released at that time. Can't remember which ones - but definitely among those still in original plastic wrappers gathering dust in the display cabinet now... laugh.gif I don't remember ever having to queue excessively, but maybe because I went off-peak times, etc. and wasn't chasing the whole collection. Only those that looked good.

Was just showing my daughter just now, the chronology of events related to the first release of the kitties at macs - how grown up men fought each other over a soft toy, and how cisco security officers had to be deployed... laugh.gif She couldn't believe it!
