Sanrio Friend of the Month: Pekkle

It’s summertime, time to live it up while the sun is up! Just like Pekkle, the Sanrio ‘Friend of the Month’ for August. Here’s more about this classic and easy-going fellow. 


  • is a good-natured, kind little guy
  • loves to sing and dance
  • has been learning how to tap-dance
  • dreams of flying one day

But did you know that Pekkle actually can’t swim very well? His friend, Pitchi, is his swim instructor and has been giving him lessons. Pitchi is a fish, so do you think Pekkle will be ready to paddle by the end of the summer?

Another fun fact, Pekkle’s most treasured possession is the bucket that he carries around. It looks like Pitchi is drumming up a beat, so let’s all dance!

Speaking of dancing, get ready to boogie for the exclusive Pekkle ‘Sanrio Friend of the Month’ collector pin for August!

The pin is available starting on ‘Friend of the Month Friday’, which is always the first Friday of the month, as a small gift with a $30 purchase at the Sanrio Online Store and in select Sanrio stores. This month, the pin will be available starting August 4th. Get one for your collection before they’re gone! Each pin is only available until the end of the month or while supplies last.
