Miss Yamaguchi was on February 26, 2014, at very trendy Paris concept store Colette to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the character, and sign a large illustrated book named Hello Kitty Collaborations, published by Rizzoli.

Younger and older “Hello Kitty” friends could also have their nails polished, try candies made exclusively for the anniversary, and get free hugs from Kitty herself.

Sanrio, the company that launched the “Hello Kitty” can be very proud of its mouthless cat-based character.

Happy anniversary, dear “Hello Kitty” and Kitty White!
