Before Bratz dolls, before My Pretty Pony or Care Bears, and way before Cabbage Patch Kids caused violent riots at your local Toys R’ Us, there was Hello Kitty, a friendly young kitty-cat with no mouth but a lot of heart. Created by the Japanese company Sanrio in 1974 and first appearing in the U.S. in 1976, her full name is actually Kitty White (you Hello Kitty fanatics probably already knew that) and she’s very fond of saying: “You can never have too many friends!”

To celebrate her 45th birthday (she looks great, by the way) Sanrio has teamed up with Cost Plus World Market to launch an exclusive collection of Hello Kitty merchandise, including food items like soy sauce, pasta, and WINE, (’cause a lot of her older fans are ADULTS, of course.) We went shopping to find the items you’ll love because we’re obsessed with her and, “You can never have too many Hello Kitty things!”
