Just for FunYear Created: 1985

True to their name, these bears are all about fun! Where there is joy and excitement, you’ll sure to find them there.

Throughout the years, Sanrio’s released adorable characters that people have come to know, love, and maybe, be inspired with. Such might be the case of this week’s featured video, because it shows adorable fuzzies created by the video maker herself. SchoolTime Introduction, this week’s Dream Studio Video of the Week, is made by veedeck, an 11-year old aspiring artist. She features her self-created characters in her video, a bunch of adorable animals complete with their colors and names. She presents each of her fuzzies in a very creative way, maximizing the effects of Dream Studio by making these appear as though they really were meeting on the slides. Accompanying the pictures is fun music that’s just perfect for the content and theme of the video.To check the video out, go to http://video.sanriotown.com/video/7e7da88431e3c219.

There are a lot of animal lovers here on SanrioTown, some of which have already been featured as part of the Blog All-Stars here in the SanrioTown Main Blog, and this week’s “star” is no exception!

Meet shiningstarsarah, owner of the blog “Sarah, Proud and Tall”. While she doesn’t say it face up, we get the feeling that she really has a soft spot for animals, if her blog entries are an indication.

Sarah, Proud and Tall

Her entries are usually about her favorite animals: her dog Dixie and horses. Her love for the latter shows on her posts, because she not only talks about these in general, but she also gives information on what kinds of saddles are good and stories about her favorite horse.

Get to know Sarah and read her animal stories by going to http://blog.sanriotown.com/shiningstarsarah:hellokitty.com/.
