Easter will have to be a much smaller event for most of us this year but the cute characters at Sanrio Japan are still getting dressed up to celebrate with some new plush, mascots, charms and toys. Let’s have a look!
Of course there are plushies and these look so soft and fluffy with lots of pastel colours, bunny ears and little bags! How much does Pompompurin want a hug?
There’s also smaller mascot plushies with eggshell hats, holding chicks. Though it does look a little bit like they are nibbling on them so let’s hope they are chocolate chicks. The eggs on the top right are blind box clips.
And some charms to cute up your bag. The top ones are mini bags full of candy. The others are little flocked charms packaged inside Easter snowglobes.
What do you call these in your country? I will always associate them with Weebles from my childhood but they are also called roly-poly toys. Enjoy a video of them wobbling around.
You can order the plush and flocked charms now from Sanrio Japan (requires a forwarding service for international shipping) or Very Goods (Japan – ships worldwide). The others will be released later in April or won’t be listed online.
