The underwater world can be a pretty mysterious place. Full of intrigue, full of mystery; of a seabed lined in colorful coral and blue waves churning with fish. We conduct all sorts of happenings over the waves – things like marine services in Malaysia, or vessel charters in Malaysia, or lay up vessel service in Malaysia. But the ocean is still a pretty strange and mysterious place, hiding all sorts of interesting things away from the public eye.
However, the sea isn’t always just a place of mystery and intrigue – it’s also home to all sorts of cute sea creatures. And sometimes, certain companies can see thezse creatures and think to themselves hey, what if we made these things even cuter? And they do exactly that.
They create some of the most adorable mascots from the underwater world that have ever blessed our eyes!
So for those of us who love the sea and cute things, here are 3 of the most adorable mascots of the underwater world!
Swedish for ‘blue shark’, this adorable IKEA plush blue shark took the Internet by storm a few years ago with it’s cute appearance and hilariously relatable face. With a long huggable body and an expression that reflects the dark comedic nihilism that plagues our times, the online world was immediately smitten with this IKEA shark plush upon it’s release – and immediately began posting pictures of their own shark on social media in various funny poses.
But that wasn’t the end of the Blahaj internet trend – soon enough, everyone was taking to the Internet to post cute pictures of their shark plush clad in cute clothes, wearing glasses, and doing distinctively human things like reading books or browsing the Internet or chilling by the bench in a scarf with a Starbucks. Without a doubt, the Blahaj is one of the cutest and most popular mascots of the undersea world!
Roughly translating into ‘Mr. Whale Shark’, Jinbei-san is one of the many adorable mascots to be created by the Japanese company San-X, who is famously also the creator of the much beloved Rilakkuma. As it’s name suggests, Jinbei-san is one of the cutest plush whale sharks out there – with a simplistic design, a cute round body dotted in white spots, a soft peach tummy, and the cutest gentle smiley face you’ve ever seen!
Jinbei-san is often seen with a host of other characters from his mascot line, such as a pink manta-ray that often clings to the underside of it’s stomach, an equally adorable blue whale plush with a soft smile and blushy cheeks, and other cute friends that Jinbei-san loves to hang out with. Just looking at this plush’s adorable little face will put you in a good mood – and make you want to snuggle and shower Jinbei-san with love and affection!
3. Ebifurai No Shippo
Ebifurai No Shippo is a little more of a weird character on this list – but that doesn’t stop them from belonging here in their own way!
Ebifurai No Shippo is a shrimp, but not in the way you’re probably thinking. Rather, they’re the leftover tail of a fried shrimp that someone, apparently, did not eat finish. Hailing from the popular character cast of Sumikko Gurashi (a.k.a ‘Life in a Corner’), this fried shrimp is still rather cute in their own way – small and lumpy, with the red ‘tail’ of the fried shrimp it used to belong to sticking out of their head like a ribbon. What’s more, they’re always seen in their frankly adorable pose – touching their hands together uncertainly, with a hilariously endearing blank expression.
Either way – the Ebifurai No Shippo, much like all the characters on this list, is incredibly cute!
