Hello Kitty has become an incredibly recognizable and profitable brand, with some 22,000 official products available – one third of which are made by other companies under license. In 2003, Hello Kitty products made up half of Sanrio’s $1 billion annual sales, and the cat keeps popping up in new and quite often unexpected places. Take a look at these 15 bizarre products, which have been branded with Hello Kitty in the hopes of leveraging sales. It may be weird, but it’s good business.
