Sanrio’s cute characters have been very busy this month so here’s a round-up of what’s new.
It’s supposed to be the year of the dog but the Sanrio characters are all dressed up as cats for these new plush, available at US Sanrio stores or online. I think the kitten sized ones are the cutest, especially Gudetama and Pompompurin.
If you need a new game, Hello Kitty Basket Catch looks fun and very kawaii. It’s a simple coin catching game but with round Pochadama version of your favourite Sanrio characters. Free to download for both iPhone and Android.
The Tokyo Pixel shop is high on my list for my next Japan trip but you don’t have to go to Japan to get your hands on their Sanrio collaboration. JapanLA have pixel charms online now but the amazingly-cute stationery is only in their Los Angeles store at the moment so email to place an order.
The new edition of Sanrio’s Small Gift Crate subscription box is now available to order. The theme is Naturally Cute and will have a sweet springtime style. These boxes are really good value with all-exclusive items so well worth signing up if you’re a Sanrio fan.
And finally – can you believe it? – Gudetama is celebrating his 5th anniversary! He’s heading into space and taking over the whole universe so watch the anniversary movie and wait for the new products to be revealed.
