Guest Post: Five Facts About Hello Kitty

Posted on September 30, 2014 by

This is a guest post by Roo, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

For this piece, I fancied a bit of a challenge combined with a love for the ultimate kawaii heroine, Hello Kitty. Here are five items I have found inspired by facts about Sanrio’s most famous cat.

    I really like this challenge idea. It is very imaginative. More fun than listing just any products.

    I dig this! I never knew she had a boyfriend.

    Super-cute stuff.

    5 facts for 5 Apple’s awesome!

    The best thing about this is that the information is delivered in a fun way which mirrors the character. Roo seems like the perfect fit for these characters.

    Wonderful write up. I LOVE Hello Kitty and the tidbits of HK facts is awesome! I didn’t realize that HK birth year is the same as mine. ♥ Ü ♥

    I did not know her birthday, though my sister in law is obsessed (I say this lovingly, but I mean it. So. Much). Maybe I’ll send her a card on Hello Kitty’s birthday this year \o/ Cute list!

    Fun and informative article.

    My daughters love Hello Kitty – they thirst for facts about the character and love the brand products. So thanks for a blog that delivers on both counts! Now, where’s that Christmas shopping list …

    Awesome information…I had no idea she lived in London nor that she had a boyfriend named Dear Daniel. Thanks and great web-site!

    These are interesting! My favorite is learning that Hello Kitty’s birthday is two days before mine. :-) And I would have never guessed that she lived in London. Thanks for furthering my Hello Kitty education!

    Roo clearly knows her onions, but more importantly her Hello Kitty knowledge. Clearly a passion.

    Is it really bad that I’m well into adulthood and I already knew most of these things before I read the post?

  • Reply Pattie October 3, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Wasn’t it recently revealed that she’s not a cat but a girl with catlike features? Or did I dream that? =D Excellent article. Write more, please!!

  • Reply Rachael C October 5, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    I think you’re right Pattie, they did say she’s a girl and not a cat! Looks like we can add a 6th fact to this brilliant post x

    Oooh! Lots of things I never knew! I especially like the one about the apples – and that apple clock is gorgeous!
