Hello Kitty is a cat that wears many hats, such as those of all of the members of KISS (as seen above). This, in part, has led Hello Kitty to gain global notoriety from her roots in Japan and become the prime example of a “kawaii” character. Funko’s line of vinyl figures of Hello Kitty and her Friends (pictured below), along with the Hello Kitty x KISS line certainly capture the iconic cat, both inside and out of her traditional roles. This makes the Hello Kitty vinyl figures an interesting gift for a usually wide variety of people: from KISS fans to toy collectors, to those intrigued by Japanese subculture.
So while everyone may not be a cat person, at least we can all agree on Hello Kitty.
