Meet the cute Sentimental Circus characters

Meet the cute Sentimental Circus characters

Sentimental Circus is the second most popular character from the San-X family after Rilakkuma. We also carry more than 400 different Sentimental Circus products in our shop and get new ones frequently. Time to get to know the different circus animals a bit better.

The Sentimental Circus animals are abandoned toys. They gathered from the streets or the corners of the children rooms where they were left and awake every night after the whole town has fallen asleep. Then they start their circus show and every character has a great act to perform. Here are some of the cute fellas:

Shappo

Rabbit Shappo is the ringmaster of the circus and the main character of the Sentimental Circus crew. He always wears a small top hat which has needles, thread and magic props hidden inside. He is very good at fancywork and tries to dress well. He has a thing for capes.

Mouton

Rio

Make Valentine’s Day Bentos

If you want to surprise your loved ones with a little Valentine’s Day treat make a cute Valentine’s Day Bento. We found some really cute Valentine’s Day Bentos on several blogs that might inspire you. They look super adorable and are a great way to express your love. For most of them you just need a heart-shaped food cutter, cookie cutter or rice ball shaper. Heart-shaped bento cups are also a good start.

Our fabrics in the Easter edition of magazine Lena Creativ

We are in love with all the beautiful things the editors of the German creative magazine Lena Creativ made with our fabrics. For their Easter edition they used many of the fabrics from our Dots, Stripe, Checkers category to make lovely projects for outdoor life. We are super impressed with the pillows, covers, parasol, bunting and decoration items. But our favourite one is the lovely big cushion made with one of our Michael Miller cotton sateen fabrics.

Chinese New Year surprise: red pockets in all orders

Chinese New Year is the time of tradition and you can be part of that now. The next 3,600 orders in our online shop will receive a super kawaii red pocket with adorable horse designs, as the Year of the Horse is about to start. These little red envelopes are almost the most important thing for CNY, as traditionally they are filled with money gifts for friends and relatives. So everybody wants to get as many as possible. Our red pockets won’t be empty either; they are not filled with money but with a cute thing.

Be sure to order soon if you want a red pocket. We start giving them away today and expect them to be gone in a couple of days.
