Hello kitty figurine anyone? YES! that's my big yes :)
We are very happy that we could make our own kitty nowadays. We just love this cute kitty without mouth, don't you?
It's amazing to see how the fictional character created by Yuko Shimizu and produced by Sanrio speaks a lot about friendship, sharing and caring to people at all ages around the world through the character. Apparently the hello kitty story fascinating everyone around the world.
I remember there was a time in Singapore when people queue for hours and hours at McDonalds to grab the figurines.
Some people says that the Hello Kitty name is a back-translation of Maneki Neko.
Maneki-Neko (a cat with waving hand) in Japan believed could bring good luck to anyone who own or display this figurine in front of their shopfront or business place.
I couldn't understand the relation between the kitty and the Maneki Neko. Look at its mouth.
Hello Kitty character doesn't have mouth!
Sanrio, the Japanese company who produced the character explained that the lack of the mouth allows her to speak from the heart, letting people project their feeling to the character and she wasn't bound to any particular language which make the kitty a symbol of friendship between people around the world.
