♥ about my favorite kitty
historyHello Kitty is an adorable character introduced to the world in 1974 (1976 US) by the Japanese company Sanrio. She was designed by Ikuko Shimizu.
The first product released was a vinyl coin purse featuring an image of Hello Kitty sitting between a fish bowl and a bottle of milk with a straw.
She is a simple drawing of a female white cat with a red bow, yellow round nose, oval black eyes, three whiskers on each side of her face, and no mouth. Her first fashion was blue overalls, now her fashions are endless :)
