Funko Pop 65 Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty, also known by her real name Kitty White, is a fictional character created by Yuko Shimizu, currently designed by Yuko Yamaguchi, and owned by the Japanese company Sanrio.  Sanrio depicts Hello Kitty as an anthropomorphized white cat with a red bow and no visible mouth.  According to her backstory, she lives in a London suburb with her family, and is close to her twin sister Mimmy, who is depicted with a yellow bow.  Hello Kitty was created in 1974 and the first item, a vinyl coin purse, was introduced in 1975.  Originally, Hello Kitty was only marketed towards pre-teenage girls, but beginning in the 1990s, the brand found commercial success among teenage and adult consumers as well.  Hello Kitty's popularity also grew with the emergence of kawaii (cute) culture.  The brand went into decline in Japan after the 1990s, but continued to grow in the international market.  UNICEF has appointed Hello Kitty children's ambassador and the Japanese government appointed her ambassador of tourism.  There are many Sanrio theme parks based on Hello Kitty.  The Hello Kitty media franchise has grown to include a number of animated series targeted towards children, as well as several comics, animated films, video games, books, music albums and other media productions.  A variety of products have featured the character over the years, like school supplies, clothing, accessories, and toys, along with other items.
