Kitty-chan – who doesn’t love this bright and kind-hearted bobtail friend? What begin back in 1974 as one of many Japanese animation characters has literally evolved into a global phenomenon bringing in over $5 billion annually. That is a LOT of Hello Kitty trinkets, right?
You might think so, but in fact, Kitty-chan’s influence has now reached far beyond the realm of toys and accessories for children (and the occasion Sanrio theme park – there’s two). She has now become the face and image of some of the most luxurious items (and places) in the world for adults, too. Picture it: Hello Kitty Stratocaster guitar, jewelry and watches, Hello Kitty wines, restaurants, cafes, hospital, hotels – even a Hello Kitty EVA Airways Airbus.
It’s safe to say that the Hello Kitty influence is vast and far-reaching — and like anything in modern culture with big effects on our lives . . . you’ve just gotta know it’s going to show up in cake form to help set the celebratory tone for many of our life events!
Everything from kids parties to graduation – even weddings. The familiar face of Kitty-chan can be found in sweet creations that add a touch of whimsy and childhood, lifting spirits and in some cases taking us back in time to sweet memories, as well.
