New Character - Sumikko Gurashi♪

Introducing new heartwarming characters from San-X - Sumikko Gurashi!

'Sumikko' in Japanese means 'corner', and 'Gurashi' (kurashi) means 'living'.
They are the Living Beings of the Corners, which loves....corners.
Aren't they adorable? :)


Introducing the random but adorable Sumikko characters:

From left - Shirokuma (White Bear), Penguin?, Tonkatsu (Fried Pork Cutlet), Neko (Cat), Tapioca (Pearls of bubble-tea), Zassou (Weeds)

Shirokuma, a white bear that ran away from the Northern country as he hates cold places. Feels in peace when he drinks tea at a cornered spot.

 Penguin? does not have confidence in himself and is unsure of his own identity. Thinks he had a plate on his head before, like a 'Kappa'.

Tonkatsu, the last piece of fried pork cutlet that consists of 1% meat and 99% fat. He is always left behind due to his fat content...

Neko, the shy cat that loves to stay and scratch the corners...

Tapioca, the pearls of bubble-tea that are always left behind...

Zassou, the weed that strongly believes he can be a bouquet at his favorite florist.

  2. Hello! Thank you for your enquiry!
    The plush toy is $16.95 and the palm-sized toy costs $7.70.
    Sorry, most stores ran out of the soft toys.
    Takashimaya Basement 1 still has one Tonkatsu soft toy, and Isetan Scotts has one penguin and one Tonkatsu soft toy. And do you have any preferred outlet that we can check for you?
    Thank you!

    1. We did not expect the characters to be such a big hit too...(^^;
      We are going to order more stocks, but if our supplier in Japan does not have stocks, it will probably take a few months... So we are not sure of the next arrival date. (><)

      The stationery counter at Takashimaya Basement 1 still has stocks for the mini pouch and big pouch. :)

  16. Hi there! ( ゚▽゚)/ I'm interested to know, do you have any advice on cleaning the products? I currently have the mobile pouch and Shirokuma toy. They're both made of the same soft, furry, velvet-ish material and they're both pale, so they're easily dirtied. Do I wipe them down with a wet cloth? Or put them into the washing machine LOL. Thanks!! ヾ(^∇^)
