Hello Kitty Galore

I don't know what came over me but today, I collect Hello Kitty photos. Yes, I love Hello Kitty, she is so cute, no doubt about that. But I don't collect Hello Kitty stuff or I don't really search for it purposely.

Anyways, I've been goggling and searching "Hello Kitty" on the Internet here and there and saving photos here and there. So what am I doing with those photos? I upload it on my Facebook and I look at it over and over again.

Here's a few:








A little of Hello Kitty's background, borrowed from Wikipedia

Hello Kitty (ハローキティ Harō Kiti) (full name Kitty White) is a fictional character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio, first designed by Yuko Shimizu. She is portrayed as a female white Japanese bobtail cat with a red bow. The character's first appearance on an item, a vinyl coin purse, was introduced in Japan in 1974 and brought to the United States in 1976. The character is a staple of the kawaii segment of Japanese popular culture. The Hello Kitty trademark has spread globally; Sanrio earned over $1 billion annually in sales outside of Japan, as of 2003.
Originally aimed at pre-adolescent females, Hello Kitty's market has broadened to include grown up consumers. She can be found on a variety of products ranging from school supplies to fashion accessories and high-end consumer products. Several Hello Kitty TV series, targeted towards young children, have been produced. Hello Kitty is also the main character at the two Japanese Sanrio theme parks, Harmonyland and the indoor Sanrio Puroland.
