The idea of her came from Japan in 1974, but the character was born in London on November 1st. Her height is described as five apples and her weight as three apples. Her full name is Kitty White, while Hello Kitty is just a nickname. She has a twin called Mimmy, you can tell the difference as Kitty wears her bow on the left, Mimmy wears hers on the right.
She has inspired a wide range of products, from checking accounts in America with which you can have debit cards with her face on, electric guitars, jewellery, video games, dolls, stickers, greeting cards, clothes, accessories, school supplies, dishes and home appliances. Not to mention two theme parks in Japan.
Kitty, you are a legend.
