Since Sanrio introduced Hello Kitty to the world in 1974, the anthropomorphic cat girl, also known as Kitty White, has soared to incredible heights. Now a global phenomenon, Hello Kitty appeals to all cultures, ages, and genders. And with Hello Kitty’s fanbase growing bigger and bigger with each passing year, it’s not surprising that brands like Funko Pop! have teamed up with the kawaii character to create some of the cutest products in the market today.
In addition to Funko, Hello Kitty has also recently partnered with Girls Skateboards for collection of skateboarding merchandise that includes skateboard decks, complete skateboards, conical wheels, shirts, jackets, hoodies, caps, enamel pins, and stickers. Hello Kitty has also collaborated with Get Floaty for a Hello Kitty-themed tube float and cupholder set. Hello Kitty has also recently teamed up with Baby-G, Jolly Awesome, Melissa Shoes, and Converse.
