I’m quite a big fan of Hello Kitty. Apparently I have a soft spot for everything girlish and pink. Yes. I’ve been a huge fan of Hello Kitty, the fictional character produced by the Japanese company, Sanrio. She is depicted as an anthropomorphic white Japanese bobtail cat with a red bow.
I used to think that Hello Kitty is a cat, but apparently my whole life is a lie. The character is a gijinka, an anthropomorphism or personification of a cat. In August 2014 an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii was told by Sanrio that Hello Kitty was not simply a cat, describing her as a little English girl called Kitty White, from outside London. The name Kitty was inspired from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, where in a scene early in the book Alice plays with a cat she calls Kitty.
So there you have it, folks…the truth about Hello Kitty that not much of you probably know. She is more than just a what she seems, a mouthless cat. She is a little girl, who is every girls’ best friend, and last week, I was given an opportunity to catch a glimpse of her at the launching of her clothing line at Kitschen, Fahrenheit 88, Kuala Lumpur.
Sanrio’s Hello Kitty range of products are usually quite high priced, but now you can wear the Hello Kitty themed collection by KITSCHEN which is tagged affordably between RM39.90 to RM159.90.
