Hello Kitty has been a popular character for several decades. You can find this adorable character on various items, and this includes the popular Nanoblock series.
Did you know that this popular character was actually born in London, England? However, you can find an official store in Tokyo, Japan. Luckily, you can also find merchandise and other stores online and around the world.
Hello Kitty Nanoblock sets are becoming popular among many collectors.

You may be looking to add this character to your collection, or maybe you are planning to shop for another fan of this Sanrio character and her friends.
If you are unsure where to start when shopping for this franchise, you can always check out my guide of the best Hello Kitty sets.
I have done my research on various websites, blogs and YouTube videos, and I have taken my own experience with Nanoblock into account for my guide.
As you read through my guide, you are going to find…
- The best Nanoblock sets of this franchise.
- Details on several sets.
- Collectors’ videos of the sets and other merchandise.
I want to start my guide with my top pick for the best Hello Kitty Nanoblock set.
My Top Pick
Of course, I am starting my guide with my top pick for the best Nanoblock Hello Kitty set.
- Designed for younger and beginner builders
- Includes step-by-step instructions
- Body size is 75 x 74 x 75 mm
- Includes a display baseplate
- The blocks measure 6 mm for easier gripping, which means they are slightly bigger than standard sets
The Nanoblock Plus Hello Kitty Yacht is my top pick because it is so adorable and colorful. I love the striped sail and the apple on the side. The set also comes with a precious figurine. In my opinion, this is easier than building the character plus the yacht.
It should be noted that Plus and standard pieces are not compatible. However, I think Plus is a great option for younger children and beginners.
In addition to my top pick, there is another set I feel is a great addition to any collection.
- The smallest pieces measure 6 x 6 mm
- Includes a display baseplate
- Includes step-by-step instructions
- Body size is 60 x 110 x 60 mm
- A compact design of the character’s colorful, full-sized house
I think Kitty’s House PK-003 is another great set because you have the opportunity to build the character’s house. The colorful details never fail to capture my attention, and this includes the chimney, flower doorknob and pink flowers. You can even find the character’s name above her front door.
This is another Plus set, which features bigger blocks to help children and beginners step into the world of Nanoblock.
There are certain elements to keep in mind when shopping for any sets for yourself or another collector. To help you get started on your shopping trip, I have put together a buyer’s guide for choosing the best sets.
I hope my buyer’s guide is helpful in expanding your collection or surprising a loved one with a special gift.
Step One: Difficulty Level
You should always check the difficulty level on the packaging to ensure you are choosing a set that fits your experience or preference.
I could not find the difficulty level for Nanoblock Plus sets, so I assume the rules are different because it is geared toward younger and beginner builders.
However, the difficulty level on standard sets is based on a scale of one to five. One is the easiest level, and five is the most advanced level.
Regardless of the difficulty level, all sets come with easy-to-follow instructions.
To quote Tons of Hobbies,
“A quick perusal of the instructions revealed it to be a rather straightforward build.”
This was a review of a set that was not on my list, but I know from experience that it applies to most sets.

Step Two: How Many Pieces
Next, you want to check for the number of pieces included in each set.
The number of pieces may be a dealbreaker to you or your recipient, or you may not be worried about the number of pieces at all.

You can find sets with as few as 80 pieces or as many as 6,000 pieces. The number of pieces depends on the design itself, the difficulty level, and the target age group.
The number of pieces can be found on the packaging, and the total count includes the display baseplate and extra pieces.
Every set includes extra pieces to avoid frustration if you lose a piece, but you can also use the pieces to create or change a design.
Step 3: Age Group
The suggested age group is another thing to keep in mind when choosing your set.
If you are expanding your own collection, you may not be worried about the age group. I do not always look at the age group when shopping for myself.

However, the age group is important if you are shopping for another collector. I would not purchase an advanced set for a young child who is just starting out in building kits.
The suggested age group can be found on the packaging, and it is usually based on the difficulty level of the set. For example, a level one set is suitable for ages 8 and older.
Of course, a Plus set is suitable for ages 5 and older. This is perfect if you are shopping for a younger age group.

I found the following quote from Andy of Nanoblock Blog, who was referring to another Hello Kitty set. To quote this blogger, “With only 110 pieces the set is definitely on the smaller side and has no real challenge to it, but was an enjoyable ‘just-for-fun’ build.”
If a set with 110 pieces is easy to assemble, you can rest assured that a set with 80 pieces is also easy to put together.
