McDonald's will release The Kerokerokeroppi toy first, followed by the others.

But before they become available in the restaurants, fans can already purchase Hello Kitty Bubbly World promotion toys online.And the online sales was once again greeted by Kitty mania fueled by fans and opportunistic "resellers" who are hoping to buy the Hello Kitty set to resell to collectors for a handsome profit. The McDonald's Hello Kitty set is offered for $80 on online site. In the black market, they are sold for $120++ or much more.

This is the first time McDonald’s is selling online the the entire collection of plush Hello Kitty toys in an exclusive Collectors’ Set. The set includes all six individually-boxed plush toys, a 40th Anniversary certificate and six Extra Value Meal vouchers.

The set went on sales at 11 AM today online but just at noon time, McDonald's Singapore posted the below message on their Facebook page: "Dear customers, we thank you for your support. The site is functioning but due to extremely high traffic, the site is taking longer than usual to load. Please be patient and keep trying. Thank you!"

If the past queues are a sign that expect long queues for the toys once they are released here on April 28th.
