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!
