San-X has designed over a hundred kawaii characters over the years, but I feel as if we only ever regularly see a select few outside Japan. One of my favourites is multicoloured seal gang Mamegoma, so I decided to go on a hunt to see what cute merchandise I could find online. Step aside, Rilakkuma — it’s Mamegoma’s time to shine!
First up is this miniature Mamegoma memo pad from Kawaii Panda. It has 100 sheets of paper in two adorable designs, and is perfect for quickly jotting down notes, or even crafting with.
Call me old-fashioned, but I love sending and receiving snail mail. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy receiving something other than household bills in their mailbox, especially when it’s as adorable as this letter set at Shop Kawaii!
Mamegoma love dressing up as other marine mammals, and this pool bag at San-X showcases their many cute costumes. It also comes with a small pouch that’s ideal for storing loose change or accessories in. Unfortunately, San-X only deliver to Japan, but you can still order internationally using a forwarding service like Tenso.
This pastel Mamegoma-print pencil case from Kawaii Panda is sure to brighten up even the dreariest of desks!
I’m always on the look out for super cute clothing featuring my favourite characters, and this brightly coloured sweatshirt from JapanLA ticks every box.
Are you a fan of Mamegoma, too? Which of the above merch is your favourite? Leave a comment and let me know!
