But what about Hello Kitty’s family?  We know that Hello Kitty has a mama, a papa, and a twin sister; but what are they like?

Mary White is Hello Kitty’s mama. She is kind and caring and loves cooking. We bet you knew that her apple pie is famous!

George White is Hello Kitty’s papa. He is the backbone of the family, ever-reliable with a dry sense of humor. #DadJokes

Hello Kitty’s twin sister, Mimmy White, is quiet, shy and very girly. She loves her sister very much and looks just like her, although she wears a yellow ribbon on her right ear. She is good at embroidery and patchwork, and her favorite subject in school is home economics.

Hello Kitty also has a grandma and a grandpa! Their names are Margaret and Anthony White. Grandma makes a delicious pudding, and loves nothing more than to sit in her rocking chair doing embroidery, while Grandpa paints for a hobby and is full of knowledge and great stories of the old days.
