Sumikko Gurashi – Shirokuma’s Penguin Friend

Posted on May 29, 2017 by

If you follow SCK on Twitter, you will already be well aware of Sumikko Gurashi’s new penguin character as I got a little bit obsessed with the daily comic strip introducing him.

The story is that Penguin is an old friend of Shirokuma the polar bear who comes to visit the gang for a holiday. Penguin is apparently quite a globetrotter and look at the great gifts he brought.

You can see the whole comic here, or scroll back through the official Twitter to get translations. I especially love how jealous Penguin? is about meeting an actual Penguin but they make friends in the end.

Of course, there are lots of super cute new products to buy including this adorable igloo set with Shirokuma and Penguin wearing removable fur hoods.

There’s more tiny plushies too including Penguin? dressed as a penguin and Tonkatsu dressed as a walrus!

I’m very tickled by this set of erasers that come with little plastic pants to keep them standing upright. Things you never knew you needed.

You can see the whole range at the San-X store but they won’t ship outside of Japan. However, you can use a forwarding service like Tenso.
