Product Information:

Hello Kitty is the fictional female white Japanese bobtail cat with a red bow character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio. Formally in Japanese, "Hello Kitty" refers to the group of related characters, while the main character herself is known as Kitty White.

Hello Kitty has become a global marketing phenomenon worth billions a year.

Along with success come the counterfeiters and there are plenty of counterfeit products infringing on the Hello Kitty and Sanrio trademarks and brand.

Thousands of China retailers offer counterfeit Hello Kitty branded products on the internet to unsuspecting buyers. These products often end up advertised as authentic items on websites and local flea markets.
