The results for 2022 are out, and here are some of the hottest overall global picks ranked. But first, let’s take a look at the most well-loved Sanrio characters in Singapore.

Turns out, Singaporeans love their doggy characters, with Cinnamoroll and Pompompurin coming in first and third, and Gudetama the lazy egg in second place. This was just a slight change from 2021’s ranking, where the top three were Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll, and Pochacco.

Classic characters like Hello Kitty, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, and Pochacco are still in fans’ hearts - despite not clinching the top three spots. They are still part of the top 10, together with relatively newer friend Cogimyun, who made her debut in 2015. (Psst…check out our article on a Cogimyun-themed hotel in Tokyo!)
