Recently I discovered the magical world of small and very cozy animals Sumikko Gurashi. These are rounded cute creatures that make up a small society of lovers of cozy corners (loo if they have hidden in your apartment) These creatures are extremely quiet and delicate, therefore, apparently, they have not yet been discovered.
Toys and characters are usually funny or neutral, but Sumikko carries a deeper meaning. These are creatures living in a corner, filled up, closed and shy. Each of them, like all real people, has its own injury and problem.Thats why they charm our hearts. What do you think?))
Japanese tend to quietly suffer in the captivity of the rules of decency, to apologize a lot, to feel embarrassed. It is these emotions that Sumikko Gurashi characters convey. At the same time, despite the reflections, they continue to live their lives – they are engaged in hobbies, work in the garden, communicate with each other. Like real people 🙂
Sumikko Gurashi characters come from cartoon of San X studio. They have their own song. There are a lot of accessories, stationery, toys , collectible miniatures and soft figures of different sizes related to Sumikoo Gurashi Cartoon. They also have houses and various household items, like Silvanians.
Let’s discover a whole world of Sumikko Gurashi characters and talk about every.
