    Needless to say, Hello Kitty is adorable and popular all over the world! It is an iconic mouthless white cat-girl wearing a red bow. Dating back to 1974, Hello Kitty’s original name was Kitty White owing to its color. It was actually called “Hi Kitty” first before the name got changed to “Hello Kitty.”

    Hello Kitty was designed by Sanrio Company and Yuko Shimizu during the 1970’s. It was originally made targeting the British society. This is how the story actually goes. Hello Kitty grew up in a small house in London. She was born on November 1. To attract customers, the creators gave her a family of her own. Do you know that she has a twin sister named Mimmy?

    This is Hello Kitty’s twin sister, Mimmy. She is the same white color as Hello Kitty. Take note that she is wearing a yellow bow instead of red. It has been said that Mimmy is a home buddy, quite the opposite of her sister. However, they both love each other.
