This philosophy guides all Sanrio activities, whether we're designing a stationery set, a retail store, or an animated television series. From Sanrio boutiques showcasing the ultimate Sanrio collection to smaller assortments in other shopping environments, we invite all our friends and guests to experience the magic of these four simple words.
