Sanrio Friend of the Month: My Melody

Happy New Year, everyone! Let’s start off 2017 with some lovely news; My Melody is the Sanrio “Friend of the Month” for January! Here are some sweet facts about our honest and good-natured friend.

My Melody:

  • was born in the forest of Mariland
  • favorite hobby is baking cookies with her mother
  • favorite food is almond pound cake
  • loves her younger brother Rhythm dearly
  • treasures the hood that her grandma made only for her

But what about My Melody's family? 



We now all know that My Melody has a brother named Rhythm, right? My Melody loves him dearly, but he might just be a little bit of a rascal at times!



My Melody loves baking cookies with her mama, who also enjoys doing crafts. We hope her mama enjoys this sweet crochet tutorial from our pal, Twinkie Chan! 



My Melody’s papa is gentle and strong, which must be where My Melody gets her kind disposition!



My Melody’s grandma, who made My Melody’s signature hood, is very knowledgeable about many things. She also has an adventure-loving grandpa! 



Mariland is also home to many of My Melody’s friends! Her best friend is a mouse named Flat, who is a bit shy. 



My Melody also has another friend named Piano. She is soft, kind and girly, so this outfit of the day from Parfait Doll might be right up her alley!


We could go on and on about all of My Melody’s pals, but you can learn all about them by visiting the Sanrio Character Timeline right here on!
