The collection will consist of six half-sleeved UT graphic T-shirts and four Relaco shorts. Each item will combine the likes of Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll with Chiikawa and Hachiware. The sizes will be available from Kids 100 (shirt width of 15 inches) to Kids 160 (shirt width of 20 inches). All of them will have the same price tag of 990 yen (~$6.57) in Japan.

Here are the sample images for the crossover T-shirts:

Uniqlo had previously revealed multiple batches of apparel featuring Sanrio characters. In 2023 alone, the brand featured the franchise three times in March, August, and December. But while crossover merchandise between Sanrio and other anime or game franchises has appeared on other outlets, this will be the first time Uniqlo releases crossover apparel between the former and Chiikawa. The latter manga series has found popularity among Japanese social media users, and its second Spot the Difference puzzle book came out in October 2023.

The Chiikawa x Sanrio Characters Sweets Collection shirts will be available in Uniqlo stores from early May 2024.
