Pompompurin is celebrating his 25th anniversary this year so let’s dedicate a post to the cute yellow pudding dog.
It’s his birthday today too! How many of these facts did you know?
Pompompurin is Friend of the Month so everyone gets a free enamel pin with orders over $40 at Sanrio USA, though sadly they only ship to the USA & Canada.
The special 25th anniversary collection is so adorable but currently only available at special pop-up shops in Japan. You should also be able to pick up some of these items in person at Japanese Sanrio stores and hopefully other shops soon too. Cuteness (EU) already have some of the stationery items in stock.
And here’s some more cute Purin picks and places to shop around the world.
- Sanrio Japan (Japan only, or use a forwarding service)
- Sanrio USA (US/Canada only)
- Sanrio EU (Europe, UK, Australia & New Zealand only)
- ARTBOX (ships worldwide from the UK)
- Kawaii Panda (ships worldwide from the EU)
- VeryGoods (ships worldwide from Japan)
- Free craft projects on the Sanrio blog.
Pompompurin also features in the animated Hello Kitty Supercute Adventures which is back for a second season starting this week. Here’s the trailer, which adds Cinnamoroll & Chococat to the main cast.
