Meet the San-X characters: Mofutans Mochi Bunnies

This year we met the fun Mofutans Mochi bunnies for the first time. There are quite a few of the cute rabbits; let’s get to know them better:

Mofutans Mochi rabbits are fluffy little bunnies that are extremely stretchy. They are as stretchy as the Japanese dessert Mochi and also as sticky as Mochi, because when they touch each other, they stick together. This happens quite a lot because they like to play and bite each other. If they are not playing together, they comb their super soft fur. Each Mofutans character is inspired by real rabbit breeds. So who is in the Mofutans familiy?

Mofutans

Mofutans is a white rabbit and the main character of the Mofutans family. He is very, very stretchy and a lot of times you will see him stretched super long because his friends were pulling him. He has long ears that almost hang on the ground. When he feels good his ears go up.

Tomotan

The grey rabbit Tomotan is Mofutans closest friends. Indeed they are so close that you will see Tomotan biting on Mofutans a lot. It looks like Tomotan is eating rice cake, but he is just gently nagging on his friend.
