She Not Just A Mouthless Cat

I bet you never knew Hello Kitty has so many permutations. Apparently each of Japan's 47 prefectures have their own limited edition versions of Kitty (sold only at select locations). There are also multiple Kittys for each of the four seasons and various randomly themed Kittys.
And lest you think Hello Kitty is just a cute plastic children's toy, maybe you ought to know that her shallow, expressionless demeanor is deeper than that, she is, in fact, a "cute-therapist for the emotionally exhausted masses" of Japan.
