Looking for ways to incorporate a touch of cute into your life, without breaking the bank? Many large kawaii companies have an online fun section with plenty of cute freebies.
The new Pusheen site has got a very nice fun section. It offers freebies such as coloring pages and a printable floral tiara. To gain access to the free Pusheen wallpapers and printables, you have to create an account and subscribe to the newsletter. Add the freebies of your choice to your basket and ‘buy’ them for zero dollars. Afterwards you’ll receive the freebies in your inbox.
Sanrio is a Japanese company known for characters such as Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars, My Melody and Gudetama. On the Japanese website you can find a selection of free Sanrio character wallpapers and coloring pages. You can open the website in Chrome for an easy translation. The Sanrio Store has also got an English Kawaii Corner for you to enjoy. Browse around in the Sanrio DIY section for cute recipes, wallpapers and printables.
San-X is another Japanese company that creates cute characters. You might know them from Rilakkuma, Sumikko Gurashi and Kogepan. The Japanese San-X freebies page is packed with wallpapers featuring these cute characters. You might also enjoy their printable calendar at the top of the page, as pictured above.
tokidoki is a Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand created in 2005 by Italian artist Simone Legno. I remember that tokidoki started out as a small website with some super cute games and wallpapers. The brand has grown so much since the start. Luckily the website still offers a fun section, including these printable tokidoki calendars!
Molang is probably the ‘youngest’ character in this post. But this chubby bunny can’t go unmentioned. Somehow the official website no longer seems to be online. But you can find a great selection of Molang videos, games and printables at Cartoonito.
