Sanrio Character Ranking popularity[]

Cinnamon was deemed the most popular Sanrio character in 2020 - 2024, winning first place in the Sanrio Character Ranking.


Cinnamon was born way above the clouds in the distant sky. One day, he accidentally fell down to the ground, where he met Cafe Cinnamon's owner, Anna. She took him back to the cafe, where he met his new friends: Mocha, Milk, Chiffon, Cappuccino, and Espresso. Anna named him "Cinnamon" because of his cinnamon roll-shaped tail. From then on, they decided to live together and make Cinnamon the face of Cafe Cinnamon.


Cinnamon was created by Miyuki Okumura for Sanrio in 2001. When Sanrio was presented with the original design, they rejected it, leading Okumura to go back to the drawing board and design the Cinnamon and Cinnamoroll Universe we know today. In September 2001, he was featured in an article in The Strawberry News, along with other character designs, and fans were able to vote on which design they liked best.

Cinnamon officially debuted in June 2002 as "Baby Cinnamon." However, copyright issues with Sega Toys and Horipro's character series, Ochaken, would officially change his name to "Cinnamoroll" or "Cinnamon" as of 2003.

He became very popular very quickly, with Cinnamoroll merchandise accounting for 25% of Sanrio's sales by 2004. Cinnamoangels began development in 2005, as did Lloromannic in 2007, as seperate Cinnamoroll-inspired projects.

In 2017, Cinnamon celebrated his 15th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, the city of Shinagawa has since appointed Cinnamon as the official tourism ambassador. In addition, the permanent Cinnamoroll Cafe opened in Shinjuku City, and an album titled "Cinnnamon Trip!!" was released, with songs written and composed by vocaloid artist, OSTER Project.

With Family and Friends[]


  • It's confirmed that "Cinnamoroll" is not his real name. It's instead used as a stage name or an overseas trademark, similarly to how Hello Kitty is a stage name for Kitty White.
  • Cinnamon now lives with Anna at Cafe Cinnamon, though she's never made any apperances outside Cinnamon: The Movie.
  • Mocha tends to see Cinnamon as a girl rather than a boy, often dressing him up in bows and makeup. Cinnamon has mixed feelings about this.
    • Regardless, Cinnamon has a varying sense of style, ranging from bows and other girly accessories to more masculine outfits.
  • Okumura was warned not to use blue as Cinnamon's image color, in fear of driving away the population of female fans. This ended up being a smart move, making Cinnamon a unique character in Sanrio's lineup.
  • Cinnamon's friends were created by Okumura's desire to have fans pick a character that best represents them, rather than just having the characters play supporting roles.
  • In 2015, the official Twitter account was bombarded by internet trolls, with users making threats and other abusive comments in the replies. During this time, Cinnamon's friends posted on the account in an effort to protect him, the most popular post being from Chiffon.
