The first appearance Hello Kitty ever made was on a vinyl coin purse in 1974. The Japanese company Sanrio wanted to market her to pre-adolescent girls, but now she is popular with people of all ages. She can be found on all types of products; toys for kids, clothing, fashion accessories, school supplies, even high-end products. Hello Kitty brings in over $5 billion a year in profits. Sooo, congratulations to Sanrio!
Hello Kitty refers to a group of characters, but the main character is Kitty White. She is a Japanese bobcat, white with a red bow worn over her left ear. Surrounding her is a large family with the last name White. Mimmy is her sister who wears yellow dresses and a bow on her right side. The mom and dad of the White family are George and Mary, and the grandparents are Anthony, who likes to tell stories, and Margaret, who stays busy sewing. Dear Daniel or Daniel Starr is her childhood friend who dreams of being a celebrity.
Hello Kitty is never alone! She even has a kitty herself, Charming Kitty who's necklace holds the key to Hello Kitty's jewelry box. She has a pet hamster, too, named Sugar. But the most important thing she has is all of our hearts.If you love Hello Kitty, vote now for your favorite Hello Kitty pics!
