    Our Company!

    small gift, big smile®

    It's more than just a catchy phrase; it's the foundation of everything we do, and we're proud to say we've been creating smiles for over 40 years.

    At Sanrio, we believe that a gift is more than just a gift. Rather, a gift is a means of expressing our heartfelt feelings for others. This philosophy guides all of our 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.

    Products

    Our product line is constantly changing, thus making it difficult to get items that are older, as they’re no longer available. Check your nearest Sanrio store to see if they still have quantities available.


    At this time, the only products we have available are the ones found here at Sanrio.com!


    Sanrio.com is the official online store for Sanrio merchandise in the United States, United States Territories, Mexico, and Canada.

    Sanrio® Visa® Platinum Reward Card

    The Sanrio co-branded credit card program, for which UMB Bank, n.a. is the issuer is now closed. You should have received a physical letter in December 2018 from UMB announcing the end of the program. As a result, your Sanrio credit card account was closed on February 1, 2019. Discount codes for use on sanrio.com will be mailed no later than March 31, 2019 to cardholders who accumulated at least 5,000 points prior to February 1, 2019. Your responsibility to make payments and your other obligations relating to the account continue to be governed by the current cardholder agreement. This means that closing the account will not affect the terms that apply to your account.

    For any questions, please contact UMB’s customer service at 800-821-5184.

    Characters

    It may be that the character you're looking for is not in the current product line. Over the years, Sanrio has created over 400 characters and sometimes, older characters are often removed from the product line to make way for new characters and promotions. No character, however, is ever really discontinued. If there’s enough demand, they may come back!


    Unfotunately, not. Our characters are copyrighted and we cannot give permission to use them on personal homepages.


    Sorry, we don’t offer that service.


    Hello Kitty speaks from her heart. She’s Sanrio's ambassador to the world and isn't bound to any particular language.


    New characters are always being created. Keep checking our website to see what’s new!
