As face masks become essential in the time of Covid-19 coronavirus, it seems like our favourite Sanrio characters have started masking up, too. To reflect the state of the world right now, Sanrio has teamed up with General Sticker Inc to offer stickers, key rings and T-shirts featuring some of their most popular characters wearing face masks.
The current designs on sale feature ever-popular Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Pochacco, My Melody, Cinnamoroll, Badtz-Maru and Hana-Maru – all donning a simple white face mask. If you’re wondering how much you’ll have to shell out to collect some of these items, you’ll be glad to know that the collection is surprisingly reasonable. Stickers start at just ¥200, acrylic keychains for ¥650, and T-shirts for adults and children are priced at ¥3,000.
