Hello Kitty Background has some history

Hello Kitty came to the world in 1974, designed by japanese Yuko Shimizu who never imagined the transcendence that would come to have her character, printed in a simple vinyl purse,that was the very first Hello Kitty product. A few months later, Yuko Yamaguchi replaced Shimizu and became, even to the present,the designer in charge of all the products, accessories and trinkets garnished with the Hello Kitty face, that we can see around the world. Her design is simple but smart: Hello kitty is just a white cat, kinda of geometric, made with clean and soft lines, wearing a red bow on her left ear. One of its most distinctive features is that she lacks of a mouth, a very good design decision because as its creator says in an interview for Times magazine made in August 8th 2008:

It's so that people who look at her can project their own feelings onto her face, because she has an expressionless face. Kitty looks happy when people are happy. She looks sad when they are sad. For this psychological reason, we thought she shouldn't be tied to any emotion — and that's why she doesn't have a mouth.

Although there is a sweeter version of this history that claims that Hello Kitty has no mouth because she can speaks her feelings by using her heart. Anyway without a doubt, Hello Kitty has been able to symbolize the feelings of several generations. Indeed, although it was intended at first as a product made only for little girls, over time they were forced to diversify production, as adult women and even men have been attracted to the famous Kitty.
