Sanrio is set to hold the Pompompurin Party at four branches of the Pompompurin Cafe from September 28. The party is exclusive to girls who have signed up to become Pombassadors (Pompompurin ambassadors).

The event is taking place as a way for Pompompurin to get to know his Pombassadors better. The role of a Pombassador is to show their love of Sanrio’s adorable golden retriever by promoting him to the world on their blogs, social media and elsewhere. In return, they receive invites to events, exclusive items and more.

Tickets for the event went on sale on the Pompompurin Party Special Site on August 28.

  • Pompompurin Celebrates 25th Anniversary With Special Birthday Party Event

    24.January.2021 | FASHION

    This month marks the 25th anniversary of Sanrio’s popular character Pompompurin, and to celebrate, the kawaii character-creation company is honouring the adorable golden retriever both online and offline with a special birthday event, the selling of commemorative merchandise, and more.

     

    Pompompurin 25th Anniversary

    Pompompurin first came out of the kennel in 1996. The golden retriever is known for his trademark beret and his iconic colour scheme which is inspired by the Japanese custard pudding dessert known as purin―which is also where he gets his name from! He is a popular face amongst fans of Sanrio’s character cast, and that’s proven in the fact that he has placed top in the annual Sanrio Character Ranking three times. He lost to Cinnamoroll in the 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking, coming in second, but maybe he has a chance this year?

     

    Pompompurin has over 600,000 followers on his official Twitter account, where he posts pictures of his easy-going, everyday life and what he’s up to (probably not much during the day though as he is known for loving afternoon naps). The custard-coloured doggo also has over 20,000 registered members of his Pompompurin Ambassador program which has “Pombassadors” publishing social media posts and blog entries about Pompompurin.

     

    Birthday Event – “Pom Shusokai”

    A birthday event titled “Pom Shusokai” (Pom General Meeting) will take place at Sanrio Puroland, a theme park in Tokyo themed completely on Sanrio’s character roster, on March 21, 2021. At the general meeting, Pompompurin will appear “not as a stakeholder, but as the Head Pom” where various exciting things will take place in the run up to his actual birthday which falls on April 16. Tickets go on sale from mid February, but Pombassadors will get early access. Full details on what to expect at the event will be announced in the coming weeks on Sanrio’s homepage.

    25th Anniversary Merchandise

    A cute, original line-up of three merchandise designs has been created to commemorate Pompompurin’s 25th.

     

    Anniversary Design Items: Celebration, Collection, World Rice

    Celebration Designs

    Collection Designs

    Rice From Around The World Designs

    The collection will roll out at select Sanrio stores, variety stores, and pop-up shops in Japan from in early February.

     

    Pompompurin x Pastel Desserts Collab

    Pompompurin is also collaborating with the desserts brand Pastel who have baked up a special pudding-flavoured 25th anniversary chiffon cake. It will be sold at Pastel branches in Japan from March 15.
