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

So kawaii! We now have lots of stationery items from the latest “Happy Natural Time with Rilakkuma” collection in our shop. It’s all about being out in the forest and collecting apples and fruit for delicious home-made pies.

New characters in our shop: Zombbit zombie rabbits

They are one one of the creepiest San-X characters yet… but in a cute way. Check out all the funny Zombbit zombie rabbit stationery and plushies we now have in our shop. Zombbit rabbits are cute rabbits that somehow became zombies. The reason for this is not really clear, but there is no time to think about it, because the living dead bunnies are very hungry and will try to bite anything. They make the gnawing sound “gajigaji” all the time and are super slow. Once they bite another bunny it is infected too and will become a zombie.

Soon we will introduce the different Zombbit characters more detailed.

DIY idea: make your own San-X coloring book

Your kindergarten group, primary school students, little brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews will love it! San-X always offers lots of free e-goodies on their Japanese company website. For example you can download lots of kawaii coloring pages with characters like Rilakkuma, Mamegoma or Kutusita Nyanko. So why not make your own coloring book? You can save all the San-X coloring pages as pdfs, print them out and craft your own little booklet by stapling them together. Of course you can also use some Masking Tapes to decorate your book.

This is a great way to craft something simple for children.

New characters in our shop: Nyanpuku cat

San-X has been busy developing new characters. The kawaii Nyanpuku cat was already released in 2012. But as we just recently received more products with the funny fella, we want to to introduce him today.

Nyanpuku is a fat cat who is inspired by the Japanese maneki-neko lucky cats. His name literally means ‘Meow Fortune’. He has a key-shaped tail and a heart on the back. He is already quite old – 2929 years – and brings you ‘fukudama’ happiness and fortune. The kawaii cat weighs 2.9 kg (which is supposed to be the mass that can fit in your hand) and loves food like croquettes.

We have quite a few Nayanpuku stationery products in our shop, so check them out.

Huge San-X delivery blocking our office

Fortunately we were prepared, so it didn’t hit us by surprise. We received a gigantic San-X delivery containing 2 tons of stationery delivered on 10 pallets and packed in more than 200 boxes. A day before the delivery we took some time to clear as much space as possible. We were really worried that we might not be able to fit everything in here, but it worked out fine. But now our office area is really blocked, our office ladies are sitting right next to big piles of boxes. What a funny sight!

You can already look forward to items from the Rilakkuma Wonderland edition, hundreds of new San-X stationery items and lovely new Decole products.
