His name is a play on “gude-gude,” which means lazy and “tamago,” or egg in Japanese and sure enough, Gudetama is an egg who, well… seems to lack the energy to do anything much at all. He’s whiny, always has a face of despair and can usually be found sleeping in his shell, curled up in a bacon blanket or taking a nap on a bed of rice. Talk about living the dream!
Already a huge fan favourite around the world, we’re so excited to share our brand new range of merchandise inspired by this deliciously downbeat role model. Because there’s a little bit of Gudetama in all of us right?
Inspired by the lazy eggs trademark poses and ultra lazy approach to life, our range of clothing, mugs, bags and homewares are the perfect way to add a touch of Kawaii cool to your daily life. Our Ladies Gudetama Panels Jumper has already been spotted on the awesome Marzia Bisognin (itsmarziapie!)
To celebrate the launch of our exclusive Gudetama goodies, we couldn’t resist a give-away to welcome this eggstremely adorable character to the site.
Thanks to the lovely folk at Sanrio, we’ve managed to get our hands on one of these brilliant Gudetama Wagging Talking Plush dolls.
Not only is it ridiculously cute but if you squeeze, tap or talk to him, he’ll wiggle and chat.
Plus on top of that, we’ve also managed to get our hands on a box of multi-sensory, magical marshmallows from the amazing Boomf.
And then last but not least, our lucky winner will score £50 to spend on our exclusive range of Gudetama clothing, gifts and home-wares.
