I remember walking in hand-in-hand with my parents as my eyes widened seeing all the pink. I would get so excited and walk around slowly so I could take it all in. To me this was Disneyland! I was never a bratty kid that wanted whatever she wanted. I would always get a pen or some erasers for when I went to school so if I got bored I'd play with those, but I'd NEVER use them. They were too special to me.
    Eventually, the Hello Kitty store closed down at our mall and I soon forgot about it for years. My parents broke up 5 years ago and just recently, about 2 months ago, I had a flashback of walking in with my parents when they were still together and I instantly became obsessed with it again. I believe it's because I miss my childhood and my parents together. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. *Sigh* There were such good times. I miss the 90's so much. :')

    Well, that's my story on why I personally love Hello Kitty. What's yours? : )
    Oh my gosh. I love your story. I think that's why I love Hello Kitty and Sanrio. They are so much more than just super cute characters. They represent a time in life, a feeling, and friendship. I have lots of memories of walking into Sanrio stores when I was small (I'm in my mid-twenties now) and buying that sugary Sanrio gum. I think you put it best when you said "To me this was Disneyland!" So true for me too! Even now when I walk into a Sanrio store I walk really slow and just gaze at all of the cuteness. Thank you so much for sharing your story! Isn't it funny how a small, white, mouth-less cat and her friends can bring people together and have actually meaningful thoughts??
    please stop by and contribute...see you there!! http://www.hellokittywiki.org/

    I don't really think the world isn't 'loving'. But people get mad at each other too easly though...

    I first heard of the cat when I was about 5, btw. We had an educational computer game of her and I learned how to count and add from it!!!^_^

    Hello Kitty is pretty and cute, she really knows how to dress well.

    I didn't really own much more hk stuff till around age 11 though. Maybe she just wasn't popular/well known in our town at first?..lol *heh*

    I remember watching Hello Kitty's anime on TV, I liked it :P

    I once found a fansite about her -unfortunately on GeoCities, which is not available anymore-, that's when I knew about SanrioTown. I came here and started to learn about other characters and I have to say I really loved Badtz-Maru and Kuromi. Then I met Lloromannic and I totally fell in love with them xD

    A bit different than most of you. I am a fan of anthropomorphic cartoon animals, yes I am a furry. It started with a desire to decorate my studio apartment to express my sheer geekiness; the problem is most furry media were ether native American like themas or 20 something ravers.
    I do Ebay sales to may a little extra money and did my first vulture capitalist (buying from stores in liquidation) run when I bough stuff form KB Toys liquidation, one was some Hell Kitty plush. Most sold except one plush which I kept as a memento of my first successfully sale campaign. Latter I would look at this plus I said "why not, she's anthro and very cute and innocent to boot" I bought a fairy plush just to do something totally out of my male spere and the rest was history.
