Hello Kitty mania has hit again.

Fast food chain McDonald's, overwhelmed by orders on its website, had to stop selling its Hello Kitty dolls within just 80 minutes.

Orders for the Hello Kitty Bubbly World Collector's Set, which includes six dolls, as well as meal vouchers and a certificate to commemorate Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary, opened this morning at 11 am.

Each buyer is allowed to order to up to three such sets, which cost $80 each.
