Sumikko Gurashi - Penguin Plush Animal 9"
Penguin? seems to be having an identity crisis and he even puts a question mark after his name since he’s not even sure that he’s a penguin! He used to go around with a plate on his head which made him look like a ”Kappa” (water spirits from Japanese folklore) and not a penguin and thus presumably caused him to question his identity.

Sumikko Gurashi is an adorable character line by SanX, the Masters of Kawaii, featuring cute, shy little creatures who like to stay huddled up in a corner. “Sumikko” means corner, and “Gurashi” means life, or way of living. Sumikko Gurashi translates literally to “living in a corner.” “Sumikko” also contains a play on words, as the word “ko” can mean “child” or “little one.” That’s why the Sumikko Gurashi characters are also sometimes referred to as “Sumikkos”, or little ones, who like to be in corners and outoftheway spaces.
Japanese people love corners they want to be sure to get the corner seats when they ride trains and when they go to surrounding cafes. The Sumikko Gurashi characters appear with this as a theme, they are corner loving animals. The always cold Shirokuma (White Bear), confidence lacking Pengin? (yes, he puts a question mark after his name), leftover food like Tonkatsu(Pork cutlet and Ebi furai no shippo (Fried Shrimp tai), and other characters appear as a wee bit negative, but each one has their own great individual personalities.
Just released by SanX, Sumikko Gurashi is a new character line and touches upon how shy Japanese people can be. It’s a little negative and points out that Japanese people like to hide in corners since they are usually extremely shy. Sitting in the corner of a cafe or on the train makes them feel relaxed. So all of our new character friends have some issue in their personality which makes them like hiding in the corner.
If you like to be in the corner or prefer outoftheway spots, how would you like to join in and become friends with the Sumikko gang, too?
