Kitty-chan turns 37 years old today! This beloved icon of all things kawaii was first introduced way back in 1974 in Japan, and is today just as stylish and popular as ever!
Pictured above is the first item Hello Kitty every graced: a small plastic coin purse. It's now very rare and valuable. Someday, I would LOVE to have this lil baby in my Hello Kitty collection!
Happy Birthday, Kitty-chan :D
