Hello Kitty is a fictional cartoon character (as contrasted with a non-fictional cartoon character) who is mouthless. She was created in 1974 and has been in third grade since then. She owns a vast amount of clothing and other merchandise, and is the inspiration for many art projects. She is supercute, and we are in Los Angeles, California to explore her world!
The exhibit is in the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Come on, let’s go inside!

Many people out there think that Hello Kitty is from Japan…but actually she was born in the city of London, England and still lives there to this day.

This isn’t a Hello Kitty vibrator. Nope. It’s a “massage wand, designed to buzz away one’s troubles.” Sounds like a vibrator to me…
Why? According to the author, “On the outside, twenty-eight-year-old Fiona Yu appears to be just another Hello Kitty–an educated, well-mannered Asian American woman. Secretly, she feels torn between the traditional Chinese values of her family and the social mores of being an American girl. To escape the burden of carrying her family’s honor, Fiona decides to take her own virginity…”
