Hello Kitty is a famous Japanese cartoon character known to children and adults worldwide. As a symbol of friendship and a pop-culture icon, this cute white kitten has her cafes and lines of merchandise, including clothes, plushies, and accessories. And when it comes to such products, China stands out as a hub of apparel and accessories production.

In this article, we’ll cover the best Chinese Hello Kitty stores where you can find T-shirts, plushies and stationery with the world’s most famous white cat.

There is no doubt that Hello Kitty is a global phenomenon. She was appointed twice as a UNICEF Children’s Ambassador to the US and Japan and served as Japan’s official tourism ambassador to China, making her the first fictional character to be appointed to such roles.

Currently, Hello Kitty is owned by Sanrio, a company that came up with the character back in the ‘70s. Her creators claim that Hello Kitty is “a global symbol of friendship”, which makes her even more appealing to children and young women around the world.

When it comes to Asian countries, Hello Kitty is loved not only in her home country, Japan. This kitten mascot with a simplistic but adorable “kawaii” design has many fans in China as well. Hello Kitty is adored by young women, teenagers and girls because she is perceived as a cute and feminine fashion icon.

As a result, Hello Kitty stores, theme cafes, and amusement parks remain top attractions in China and South Asia. This also explains the abundance of Hello Kitty merchandise stores on AliExpress.

Chinese sellers offer a great variety of cute products depicting your favorite character, including lunch boxes, pajamas, toys, accessories, and more. The list is almost unlimited, and we have covered only a fraction of the best spots to shop for Hello Kitty merch.

Have you ever heard about Gachapon capsule toys? These are small figurines which can be randomly won in gachapon machines in Japan.

What makes these figurines unique is the fact that normally they can’t be bought in stores; you must either ‘win’ them in gachapon or exchange them with someone. KK Funy Toy solved this problem by selling all the Sanrio gacha toys on their page including our bellowed Hello Kitty.

Priced at $2-5 per toy, these figurines are perfect collectibles. They can be placed on a shelf or used to decorate your desktop to make it even cuter.

Spice Girls Store

Have you always dreamt about adorable Hello Kitty pajamas? Then make sure to check the Spice Girls Store – the ultimate e-shopping destination for those who want to buy some thematic apparel.

Their catalog features Hello Kitty fleece pajama pants for $6, a comfy and cute outfit for home wear; warm Hello Kitty slippers for less than $9, additional accessories, and even underwear! That’s indeed a unique selection.

Just note that without the discounts, their catalog appears pricey, so it is recommended to wait for special offers.

B2C 3C

Despite having a very generic store name, B2C 3C focuses solely on adorable Sanrio characters – even its main page uses cute posters and features Sanrio character descriptions. In addition to Hello Kitty, you’ll find a collection of Cinnamoroll, Kuromi, and MyMelody merchandise.

The catalog is conveniently divided by product categories. There is a small selection of Hello Kitty apparel (pajamas and bedding sets), storage boxes, stationery, bags, and miscellaneous products – each one cuter than the previous.

However, note that the prices in this store are slightly higher compared to other vendors on AliExpress, so it is better to wait for discounts.

Hello Kitty is Not a Cat

Did you know that Hello Kitty is not, in fact, a kitty?

This surprising fact is often overlooked by her fans, but it has been confirmed by Sanrio that Hello Kitty is not a cat. She is a ‘personification of a cat’ – something called ‘gijinka’ in Japan, or an anthropomorphic depiction of a Japanese Bobtail cat.

Hello Kitty even has a name! Her real name is Kitty White; she lives in London with her parents and younger sister Mimmy, who is also frequently featured in merchandise alongside her. She also has a boyfriend named Dear Daniel.

Hello Kitty celebrates her birthday on November 1st. She enjoys spending time with her friends, which perfectly corresponds with the theme of the character.
