Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty doesn't look bad for 35 does she? The iconic character started life in Japan in 1974 on a purse and is now a global phenomena. The character is now seen on all sorts of merchandise as well as having her own theme park and maternity hospital in Taiwan! And Hello Kitty is worth big bucks, $1 billion a year to be precise! So this mobile stall in the High Street was doing its bit to boost sales. Umbrella, beach ball, inflatable Hello Kitty anyone?!

Gee, all these toys are getting on in years. Barbie's 50+ and now Hello Kitty is over the hill.
Still cute, though!

Very cute, even my son went thru a Hello Kitty phase, except it was for one of the boy-like characters.
But hey, me & Barbie & the smurfs & Madonna & NASA are all 51 and we still look super & are going on strong - well some of us do, Madonna really shows her age ;)
