“Hello Kitty Town”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

The place is small and there are 6 to 7 activities for all to attend.

Nail station for all to paint your nails, Jewellery making for all to get a small pendent with necklace, Cookie Studio to 'paint' a cookie, Costume dress up for one who wants to dress up a My Melody or Bat-BatzMaru to take a picture, Hello Kitty House for all to take a mini tour and take pictures, Black Wonder is a section where all will play in a 'rescue mission'. Finally, Doll Factory is one will have to pay around RM80 to dress up 'Hello Kitty'.
The above activities can only be played once and can be completed within 2 or at most 3 hours.

The stage is extremely small and parade is thrice a day with the same music and same cast. They are so close to the audiences as the place is real small and cramp.

Cafe is small and food is so-so and not cheap. If possible, prepare your own food and drinks if you are going. Place is air-conditioned and you don't have to worry about being hot and sweaty.

“Average but still worth a visit since it's in JB.”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

My family and I went to Hello Kitty Town over the weekend. The place is very small if you compare it with the Sanrio Puroland Japan.
As for the attraction inside Hello Kitty Town, I love the Kitty House and Hello Kitty Black Wonder. Other then these two attractions, there is basically nothing.
However, kids will enjoy the cookie making or rather cookie colouring session, nail painting, hello kitty costume wearing, jewellery making and the tea cup.
Basically, you can cover this place in less than 2 hours If not because of all the queuing.

“Surprisingly good especially for girls who love hello kitty!”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

I was there on 12 nov 2012 with my family, since it was just opened not long ago so everything is new. The them park is in a 3 stoney building. Level 1 is Hello Kitty Town. I have to admit this theme park is very unique and if you are a hello kitty lover, you MUST visit this place. When you walked in to the park, you are like living in a hello kitty world. For the price you pay, you can participate in a few activities , for example, you can visit hello kitty home, wear the hello kitty costumes and take phone with it, make the hello kitty cookies, make the hello kitty jewellery and etc. My little girl and my wife have so much fun there !
Also, it has the show display by all hello kitty family members at certain hours and end the day with a carnival parade! As all the activities are performed indoor in a aircon condition so the kids won't feel tired so fast.
The place is not hard to find as it is near the Legoland. Parking is free at the moment and the food price is reasonable and many choices.
Only one thing i don't like is that the ticket should cover the "Doll Factory" activity but I was told that attraction is not ready and even if it ready, we have to pay separately to participate.

“Good place for kids (girl) and Hello Kitty lover but do avoid weekend and Public Holiday”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

Went there using the Skudai route. From Sutera Mall, we followed the Nusa Bestari way towards AEON/Jusco Bukit Indah. From AEON, follow the direction to Horizon Hills. Don’t turn into it, just go straight till you follow Kota Iskandar/Puteri Harbour signage. Just follow the Puteri Harbour signage. We were lost when we take the first junction into Puteri Harbour. Don’t take the junction into the Puteri Harbour. Go further until you get into a roundabout, then you follow Puteri Harbour signage. From there, we don’t think you’ll be able to get lost as the building is quite obvious.

Well, my advise, please skip the place during school holiday, weekend and ESPECIALLY public holiday. Went there on the Deepavali holiday and were proven to be like fool. The queue to buy tickets move steadily so it gives you an impression that things gonna be alright. Once you get to the Hello Kitty hall, you'll soon realize, you'll spend pretty much of your day queuing for the small sub-sections.

The cashier told us that it will take a good 3 hours for the visit at Hello Kitty Town Land but during peak season, it could be more. So, if you're thinking of buying both parks (Hello Kitty Town Land and The Little Big Place), think twice. The operation hours for both parks is 10am to 6pm only.

Main target audience is young children (girl especially) and Hello Kitty lovers. Currently, there are 2 wishful studios with 4 activities in it. Among the activities; Nail Salon, Cookie Studio, Costume Dress Up, Jewelry Making. Other activity such as Tea Cup Ride and Friendship Land (playground). The Purrfect Stage (Centre stage) is pathetically small. The show was repetitive every hour. The queue for the snacks and beverages was miserably long and slow moving.

I'm not sure what young boy or elderly could do there. Basically, nothing. Worth the price? You be the judge.
