More than twenty years ago, I remember going to my local mall and purchasing all manner of things Hello Kitty.
Back then, Hello Kitty was something new for young girls and even older girls. Today, Hello Kitty is still around
and my twins like Kitty too. That is cool! How I liked Hello Kitty fifty years ago!
Wow, that is a long time to share the love of Hello Kitty with a lot of children and now my twin girls love her
as well. This lovable toy (character) seems to find its way through every generation.
I remember when Hello Kitty was brought into the marketplace, at least when I first saw her in shops and
I remember my mall had a Hello Kitty store, full of Hello Kitty pink accessories and even fashion jewelry. I
must have been nine or ten at the time I bought my first Hello Kitty doll - I thought she was a real beauty.
I was buying this adorable kitty cat and so were my friends. All my friends, from the neighborhood and school,
had this young kitty and I remember taking mine to school and showing off my latest “pet” toy.
You might imagine that the Hello Kitty toy (character) was created in Japan, but that is incorrect. As it turns
out, Hello Kitty and her family, were created in Europe in 1974. Now, the company that makes this endearing
character is Sanrio, a Japanese firm, but she was originally created in Europe.
Did you know that Hello Kitty has a twin sister? Yes, her twin sister’s name is Mimmy and her parents are George
and Mary. It is as if these characters are real in a sense.
As I said above, now my twins, who are not indistinguishable, love Hello Kitty and are great friends just like
Hello Kitty and her sister Mimmy are.
The Hello Kitty brand has expanded in a big way into a worldwide brand. When these articles were first produced,
all that was available to little girls were a few toys and stationery. However, it was not to remain that way for
long though. The interest in this brand was just too phenomenal.
Now, almost everywhere you go, mall, strip mall, mass sellers and online, you will find items and clothing such
as tank tops, shirts, jumpers, socks, boots, flip flops, umbrellas, watches, rings, bags, purses, necklaces,
backpacks, lunch boxes, clocks and a great deal more.
Anything you want can be found in the specialist shops and Hello Kitty online. There seems to be even more
products online than in the shops, but it appears that even more and more Hello Kitty products are being produced
and added everyday.
Some more things your child might like are a variety of Hello Kitty video games - there are also quite a few
video games to play nowadays. Along with video games, there are movies, books, stickers and temporary tattoos.
The theme of Hello Kitty and her twin sister Mimmy goes on and on. It does not matter where your child lives in
the world, he or she can collect and play with Hello Kitty and her family and use their accessories in school and
If your youngster is having a party, you can buy party plates, cups, decorations and face painting kits, which
are really popular with young boys and girls. If you or your child has a mobile phone, you can now use a cell phone
cover or case for your iPhone4.
Little girls, or older girls, can purchase Hello Kitty bedding as well. For adult women, if you use a credit
card, a Hello Kitty Credit Card is now available as well. Hello Kitty has been and continues to remain a very
popular brand for kids and adults alike.
