Save Hello Kitty!
This petition had 80 supporters
Since first appearing 40 years ago on a tiny vinyl coin purse, Hello Kitty has become the cornerstone of a modern business empire and a true success story. Fans can buy Hello Kitty sneakers, paper towels, panini makers, chopsticks, wine and more. They can even eat Hello Kitty dumplings in Hong Kong, fly on a Hello Kitty plane to Taiwan or hang at Hello Kitty Con in Los Angeles.
No doubt about it: Hello Kitty was set on her way to become a massively successful pop icon that has already netted a gigantic fortune for her parent company, Japanese firm Sanrio. As part of a business strategy implemented around 2009, Sanrio decided to license Hello Kitty's image for a variety of uses and the move was almost destined to bring in even more profits.
But in the meantime, a new player joined the game - Disney's Frozen characters are beating down Hello Kitty every step of the way and "the financial condition is getting worse and worse". Rather than re-advertising an already known and 40-year-old brand, Sanrio has decided to move in a different direction by pulling Hello Kitty off the shelf and investing their efforts elsewhere - most likely, in a "Hello Kitty" replacement.
One thing is for sure - if we do not ACT NOW and show Sanrio that Hello Kitty CANNOT BE REPLACED, the lovely pink feline will be no more. The massive competition for more and more profits must stop!
