Sanrio lists the top 3 characters of 2021

Sanrio’s top 2021 characters are void of female ones.

By Yvette E

Hello Kitty may no longer be the top Sanrio character but My Melody has been the front runner for a few years. This year, she isn’t even in the top 3. The top 3…are all dogs.

Yep, the bunny craze in the US may be full swing with My Melody and Kuromi but the world wants dogs.

In 3rd Place

Pochakko or Pochacco, the beagle

Pochacco is a curious little guy who loves going for walks and eating banana ice cream. This sports-minded pup is a great basketball player and a not too shabby soccer goalie too!

In Second Place.

Pompompurin, the golden retriever

boy golden retriever is unmistakable in his trademark brown beret. He has a laidback demeanor and loves the phrase ‘let’s go out!’ He loves milk, anything soft, and his mama’s cream caramel puddings. He has a talent for napping and doing ‘purin aerobics’, and can make friends with anyone. His dream is to get even bigger.

And in 1st place

Cinnamoroll, the hound

Cinnamoroll is Cafe Cinnamon’s official mascot. He is quite shy, but very friendly, and sometimes takes a nap on customers’ laps. He can fly through the air by flapping his huge ears.

We also noticed that all the top characters are male this year. No female characters made the list for the first time.

What do you think? Would you buy merch with these characters on them?

Happy Independence Day,
