Sanrio Friend of the Month: Zashikibuta

This month is sure to full of mellow vibes, Zashikibuta is the Sanrio ‘Friend of the Month’ for February! Here are some fun facts about the easygoing pig with a green thumb.


  • is a curious but laidback pig who loves to eat
  • spends his days growing vegetables and making foods such as sweets
  • celebrates his birthday on February 4th
  • is good friends with a mouse named Tabby   

Tabby is Zashikibuta’s best friend. This little mouse doesn’t mind the odd practical joke. He also dearly loves his friends, whom he relies on perhaps too much due to his tendency to get lonely easily. His hobby is collecting pretty stones.

This pin is available as a small gift with a $35 purchase at the Sanrio Online Store and in select Sanrio stores. Get one for your collection before they’re gone! Each pin is only available until the end of the month or while supplies last.
