Take a Cute Trip Down 35 Years of Hello Kitty History

Happy late birthday!

  
  
Don’t lie to yourselves we all love the kitty, the Hello Kitty. Last year Hello Kitty celebrated its 35 anniversary, and you forgot to give her a gift! Yes, you are a bad person, I’m not going to defend you on this one. Even though we, I mean you, didn’t give her anything, she got us something; and surprise surprise it is something cute. Here is an ultra adorable video that is a tour through the 35 years of Hello Kitty history. I’m a race car Hello Kitty baby, what about you?

35 years and it's not until the last few years Hello Kitty has invaded Sweden. Took her long enough.

35 years and I still remeber watching the animated series on TV. And I still have the über cute pink wallet I got when I was a tween.
