Tuxedo Sam was always a favourite character of mine, but even as a child, it was hard to find Sanrio merchandise featuring this adorable little penguin. So, when I spotted a Tuxedo Sam memo pad at Sanseido Stationery in Osaka, I grabbed it. Who could resist that cute face?!?
The front cover features Tuxedo Sam, his friend, Chip the seal, and an array of ice-cream cones. The text on the cover reads ‘A roly-poly penguin who loves to eat, Tuxedosam is famous for his bungling manner and a collection of 365 bow ties!’
If you look closely, there is also a window in the bottom left corner and you can see Tuxedo Sam peeping through from the memo sheet underneath.
The memo pad features four different designs inside and 25 sheets of each. The first design continues on with the ice-cream theme from the cover. Personally, I love the images of Tuxedo Sam holding an ice-cream cone with so many scoops that it has toppled over and stuck to his head. So cute!
I hope Sanrio will continue to release more stationery items featuring Tuxedo Sam and his friends. I will certainly be on the look out for them. If you think this memo pad is as cute as I do, please pin it to Pinterest.
