A Merry Pompompurin Christmas in Hong Kong!

Living in Hong Kong means you may stumble upon kawaii characters and events, even when you least expect it, and we have just found another example of this:  A giant Pompompurin about 5 meters tall is now on display at Tsuen Wan Plaza! 

Did you know that this huge dog mascot is named Purin after a Japanese pudding?  The brown beret on top of his golden head resembles the caramel in a flan!  As any other retriever dog, he is very friendly, loves going out for walks, eating, napping…and hiding some of his owners’ shoes in his secret stash 🙂

Check out some delightful images of the Pompompurin display that can be explored until January 1st, 2019, taken from the All About Hong Kong facebook page.  And, of course, a few more pictures of cute Pompompurin items available in our shop!

Are you fond of dogs?  Golden retrievers are wonderful pets to have around, they are so playful and smart!  Which dog breed is your favourite? 

That is one big Pompompurin display!

Gudetama free wallpapers and 5th Anniversary!

We are celebrating lots of kawaii characters’ anniversaries this Autumn, did you notice it?  Gudetama also turned five in September, and we have come across a few great celebration images to share with you!

Gudetama may likely be the most original of Sanrio’s characters in terms of personality and attitude, and this certainly adds to its popularity.   This lazy apathetic egg yolk finds life too tough, usually makes grumpy remarks, and would rather retire into his shell or curl under a slice of bacon on pretty much every occasion, out of pure existential tiredness.

As you know, kawaii mascots of every kind are most common in Japan, where eggs are also a staple food.  Sanrio decidedly found the right combination when they created this weirdly cute food mascot! 

Do take a look at some Gudetama free wallpapers here, which you will definitely enjoy if you are a Gudetama fan.  Of course, we also have great Gudetama items available in our online shop.  Which of the images below do you like best?  Tell us!

Halloween with Sanrio at Ocean Park Hong Kong

We just had to tell you about this awesome event that no doubt will draw most fans of kawaii things, living in Hong Kong!  This year, Sanrio has partnered with one of the largest theme parks in the city to celebrate Halloween!  In past years, Ocean Park Hong Kong has held the largest Halloween events in Asia, so we can easily imagine that this Hello-ween Fest will be lots of fun!

The popular Sanrio characters we all know so well will be there to meet visitors, and join in some activities mainly designed for kids.  Of course, they are all dressed up in exclusive Halloween costumes!  There is also a Sanrio themed restaurant, where incredibly cute and elaborate Halloween treats featuring their much loved characters will be served.

This first-ever Sanrio Halloween party at Ocean Park is already under way, and the premises are full of decorations and displays inspired by Hello Kitty, Kuromi, Gudetama, Pompompurin etc.  We found some great pictures of the event, and we simply had to share them with you! Take a look at the images below, and let us know which you liked best!

Hello Kitty in Wonderland Art & Exhibition

This weekend Sanrio opened an exhibition called Hello Kitty Wonderland in Nagoya, Japan. Apart from funny optical illusions and a card game maze, the event location delights with lots of cute Alice in Wonderland inspired Hello Kitty art, created by the woman behind the cat, Japanese character designer and illustrator Yuko Yamaguchi. Just like the white bunny designs, the kawaii art of earlier successful Hello Kitty exhibitions show her strong influence on Sanrio’s most famous character, as seen in her lovely strawberry designs. We are sure Hello Kitty is in very good hands and can’t wait for her next cute creations.
