Sensational Sanrio!
By Phoebe Horlock

 

Hello Darlings! Today we’re gonna bring something a little different to your attention. You probably know all about the wonderful, adorableness of Sanrio without even knowing. OR maybe, you may know but not know some of these characters.

Well whatever the case we have the blog post for you! We’re going to break down some of the cutest characters you have ever seen and where you can find their collaborations with some of our favourite brands.

Brands like ‘Wet N Wild’ and ‘The Crème Shop’ continuously collaborate with them, and other brands like ‘Colour Pop’ have collaborated with Sanrio in the past.

The characters and merchandise from Sanrio also make incredible inspirations for looks and accessories.

 

 

What is Sanrio?

Sanrio, is a Japanese company with many kawaii (cute) creations. They design, produce and license some of the biggest kawaii franchises known to pop culture. You may already be familiar with a certain cute feline. One, Hello Kitty? That’s right, our lovely and sugoi (amazing) little Putty Cat is created by Sanrio.

With stationary, school supplies, gifts, books, video games, accessories, beauty products, plushies and much more, Sanrio fans have an almost unlimited supply of cute and fashionable products to purchase.

Even Balenciaga have teamed up with the pastel perfect company.

 


Aggretsuko

Originally called Aggressive Retsuko in the original Japanese musical comedy, it is a wonderful series about a regular hardworking gal called Retsuko. A standard office worker with a secret, this feisty panda is not to be trifled with. With a love of karaoke and a flare for heavy metal, we watch Retsuko navigate the ‘adult world’ of work, social interactions and finding love.

Here are a few little cute things to add to your collections.

Hello Kitty

Everyone knows and adores this little lady. She is in need of no introduction. Born in London this pretty kitty says that “you can never have too many friends” whilst she bakes and socialises with her twin sister Mimi. Known the world over she is probably one of the most iconic and recognisable characters from the Sanrio company.

Hello Kitty has collaborated with so many brands that it would be near impossible to show them all here! But, here are some our shout outs to some of the cutest Kitty products that you can buy online.

My Melody

Hello Kitty’s best friend My Melody, also known as My Melo is another London lady. She was originally meant to portray Little Red Riding Hood, but has become a wonderfully recognised character of her own. With a good natured and honest soul, she has become an incredibly sweet accompaniment to the Sanrio collections.

These are just a few of the My Melody things on our wish list.

Pompompurin

Now this stylish little Golden Retriever adores napping and hanging with their friends. Pompompurin is not only a snappy dresser but also has a rather strange dream; to be even bigger. It is unknown where this adorable puppy lives, but what we know is that it is in a wonderfully loving home with his sister and their owner.

Below are just three of our favourite Pompompurin things.

Little Twin Stars

Born on the 24th December, Kiki and Lala are close and constantly seen together. With their birthplace being the Dream Star-Cloud (we’re not too sure what that is either), they have no country to call their own but are striving to be the shiniest stars that they can be on Earth. Adventurous, curious and clever the two constantly get into interesting situations.

Here are just a few of our favourite pieces from the two adorable stars.

Gudetama

If there’s ever a character this particular writer identifies with, it is Gudetama. Now this little egg is a little different to the rest of the cast of characters. Translating to ‘lazy egg’ in English, this little guy is a simple raw yolk with a butt. Often seen laying on a bed of egg white there isn’t much more to him. He is a simple egg with a lazy disposition.

Here are my personal favourite pieces of Gudetama beauty and self-care.

Cinnamoroll

A super cute chubby puppy, this little fella can fly with his dumbo like ears. Living in a beautiful café his hobbies include eating and flying. As a minor character in the Sanrio company there isn’t much more to him except for a film in which he goes on an adventure with Chowder and his friends.

Although there is not much in the way of content for this guy, there is plenty of adorable merch’ for him.

Kerokerokeroppii is a super adorable frog with big eyes and tiny little mouth. Living in Donut Pond this little cutie has a double layered pun name! His name means ‘Morning Glory’, and kero also means ribbit. With a love for swimming and sports like baseball, Keroppi is an active and positive member of Sanrio.

Here’s a couple of things we thought we’d share from Keroppi’s line of beauty.
