The newest San-X character is Jinbe San, an adorably happy whale shark with a gang of underwater friends. He was voted the winner of San-X’s character election and everyone here at SCK has gone crazy for him too.
The first range of products has just launched in Japan and they’re all amazing.
Look at this plush with a little pocket for a smaller plush!
You can watch this video to see Jinbe San and friends in action and find out more on the character page, along with free wallpapers. You’ll need to use a shopping service to order from the San-X shop in Japan, or else try to be patient until they’re available at some of the San-X stockists in our shopping guide.
