Who is Cinnamoroll?

Cinnamoroll is one of the most loved characters in the Sanrio world. Miyuki Okumura, a female character illustrator and manga artist, created Cinnamoroll in 2001. Cinnamoroll debuted for the first time with the name “Baby Cinnamon.” Yet, due to a copyright issue, it was not until 2003 that it officially changed and fixed the name to the current name.

Cinnamoroll, the pup with elongated ears and a curly tail, often finds itself in a case of mistaken identity as an adorable white bunny. But hold on tight! This little mischief-maker boasts ears, setting it apart from the crowd.

Don’t let his snowy fur and rosy cheeks fool you because Cinnamoroll is one cool dude proudly sporting a wagging tail! Born on March 6, somewhere among the clouds, this charismatic character brings oodles of charm and oomph to the scene. Get ready for a paw-some adventure with Cinnamoroll!

Where did Cinnamoroll come from?

On a whimsical and sun-kissed day, Cinnamoroll descended from the sky and landed in Belbel’s motorbike basket! Little did she know that her cafe, named Cinnamon, exuded such irresistible scents that even the fluffy dog couldn’t resist.

With a twirl of his distinctive curly tail, he won Belbel’s heart and became the newest member of her cinnamon-scented adventure. Together, they embarked on a delightful journey filled with sweet treats, joyful moments, and endless cuddles!

At first, Cinnamoroll felt shy when meeting some little friends in Cafe Cinnamon. However, he’s very friendly and kind. He quickly gets along with everyone in the shop and enthusiastically participates in daily adventures with them. 

Additionally, Cinnamoroll is incredibly helpful in caring for Coco and Nuts during Cappuccino’s absence. Moreover, Cinnamoroll is very natural and innocent.
