Hello Kitty is a fictional, white bobtail cat-style character created by Yuko Shimizu and produced by the Japanese company Sanrio. Hello Kitty's full name is Kitty White, and she was created in 1974.
Spokespeople for Sanrio have said that Hello Kitty has no mouth, as they want people to "project their feelings onto the character" and "be happy or sad together with Hello Kitty." Another explanation Sanrio has given for her lack of a mouth is that she "speaks from the heart. She's Sanrio's ambassador to the world and isn't bound to any particular language". Representatives for Sanrio have said they see Hello Kitty as a symbol of friendship, and they hope she will foster between people across the world.
