Sanrio the Japanese company that created the icon character Hello Kitty, plans to build a theme park in eastern Zhejiang province in 2014.

Hideo Yamaguchi, a Sanrio Spokesman said “The potential for growth is in Asia. This agreement means a lot for Sanrio, as it will broaden our licensing business.”

Construction of the 95,000 square metre theme park is expected to begin in July.

Hello Kitty is one of the most famous cartoon characters in the world. Hello Kitty is adorned on stationery, jewelry, electronics (TV, toaster), clothing. This kitty is on everything you can imagine!

Being a fan of Hello Kitty, I own some T-shirts and stationary. Do you own any Hello Kitty stuff Ben?

More dedicated fans have Hello Kitty tattoos on their body. I was surfing the net and found an interesting photo of a couple having a Hello Kitty wedding theme! Last week on the show I talked about how people can buy replicas of Prince William’s and Kate’s wedding outfits for a Royal Wedding theme. Well for a Hello Kitty wedding theme, you can have your best man and maid of honour dressed up as hello kitty. That’s what the couple did in the photo!

Hello Kitty is taking over the world!
