la istoria di Hello Kitty


Hello Kitty was created on November 1st, 1974 by Ikuko Shimizu. The first product released with her image was a small clear vinyl coin purse that retailed for 240 yen in 1975.

Originally Hello Kitty was nameless. Then, she was going to be called “White Kitty” after one of Alice’s cats in Lewis Carroll’s book Through the Looking Glass. This morphed into Kitty White, but due to a mistranslation she became better known as Hello Kitty.
