There usually isn't anything funny about stepping on to a scale, unless it's the celebrity scale that weighs you against Goldie Hawn, John Candy or King Kong, but the Hello Kitty Body Fat Meter is a real hoot. Surprisingly, it looks like the device is more than just pink and cute, as it comes in a set of handy devices and offers illustrations on the monitor that guide you through with the calculation of body fat.
It ships with a D-041-KT device, which is a numeric value health meter, a HA-011-KT to display analog values and the KA-011-KT, which is a cooking scale. The Hello Kitty Body Fat Meter launched June 1, for 6,000 Yen (or $50 USD), but I haven't found a US store that sells it yet. Don't worry, I'll keep looking because somehow the idea of Hello Kitty monitoring my body fat seems less invasive than a doctor or trainer. Or maybe I'll just keep looking because it gives me a good giggle.
