DetailsHello Kitty _Designed by Austinruinning ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:371746 ) _In the real world, Hello Kitty was born in London in 1974, (even though a japanese company named Sanrio made her)when a young Tokyo-based company called Sanrio company co., asked designer Ikuko Shimizu to invent a cartoon character who can rely on to the preteen girl in every girl. Sanrio company co., which already created a bear and a dog (and, curiously, a strawberry) in its growing cast of characters, needed a new character that could be decorated on a plastic coin purse that they were planning to produce. _Shimizu, wanted to create a cat that was peteen-nish for sure, author Marie Y. Moss writes in a book called "Hello Kitty Hello Everything", but one that would certainly prefer a catnap to catnip." And so the designer drafted a white cat wearing a red bow and blue overalls. On November 1, 1974, Sanrio introduced the first picture of Hello Kitty. She sat between a bottle of milk and a pet goldfish, and had turned her head sideways to face her new found friends. In a word: cute. Or more accurately, Kawaii, the distinctively Japanese breed of cuteness that injects adorable attributes into all aspects of the country's consumer culture.
