Who is Hello Kitty and where on earth did she originate from? That is a good question. The image of Hello Kitty comes in a variety of styles; she comes as a boy or girl. This unique character was designed by the Japanese company Sanrio based in Tokyo Japan back in 1974. Hello Kitty is a globally known trademark that was registered in 1976. This stubby kitty didn't always have such a catch phrased name; the fact is the original name for this animated looking cat was "Whitey Kitty". The names was inspired by the British novel by Lewis Carroll "Through the Looking Glass", British culture was popular with the girls of Japan. As you may have guessed the name didn't do well with these young women at all, so the name was changed.
When 1999 rolled around, Hello Kitty was introduced to her first boyfriend called "Dear Daniel". The designers that created the character took his name from the film "Melody". Mark Lancaster stared in this film back in 1971, and his name was Daniel. The Hello Kitty collection has a bunch of friends from the Sanrio Company like Kero Kero Keroppi. This particular Sanrio character was put back on display in late 2007. Does this white kitty have any pets? Well of course she does. Hello Kitty has a pet cat (of all things) of her own called Charmmy Kitty, and a pet hamster Sugar. This easily drawn character is loved by girls as young as 2 and as old as 32. She comes in different styles and outfits to suit anyone's style or personality. Happy drawing!
