Sanrio to Open Gudetama Holiday Shop in L.A.

A Gudetama Santa will also be on-site for meet-and-greets and photo opportunities.

NORTH AMERICA–To celebrate the holiday season, Sanrio is opening a holiday pop-up store inspired by its apathetic, lazy egg character Gudetama at the Sanrio Japanese Village in Los Angeles.

While visiting the Gudetama Holiday Shop, fans will have access to exclusive holiday items including Gudetama Santa plush tree ornaments and a tree topper. Other holiday-inspired include a Gudetama sweatshirt, which features the apathetic egg napping in a snow globe, and an Aggretsuko-inspired sweater, which features the red panda’s dual personalities.

In addition to its holiday offerings, the store will feature Gudetama-themed stationery, plush, luggage, blind box figures, a Gudetama Magic 8 Ball and the new book Eggsistential Thoughts by Gudetama the Lazy Egg. Limited edition products from Japan will also be available.

While products will reign supreme at the pop-up, Gudetama fans will also be able to meet and take photos with Gudetama Santa.

The Gudetama Holiday Shop will open its doors at the Sanrio Kawaii Mart in the Sanrio Japanese Village this weekend, Dec 2-3. The store will also be open Dec. 9-10 and Dec. 16-17 before being transformed into a new space for 2018.
