40 Years, 40 Items: Hello Kitty Forever

By: TCO

The world’s favorite kitty-cat, Hello Kitty, has turned 40 this year (sorry, but I’m not buying the whole “Hello Kitty is not a cat” thing). Hello Kitty first appeared in Japan in 1974 on a vinyl coin purse. Since then she has appeared on more merchandise that one would think humanly possible. (I’m curious if the brand holds any records for the sheer amount of merchandize they’ve created…) Hello Kitty merch ranges from mundane to the bizarre, but they all have one thing in common: they’re too cute.

In honor of Hello Kitty’s 40 years, here are 40 unusual Hello Kitty items:
