Cinnamoroll or Cinnamon is a popular Sanrio character created in 2001[1] by Miyuki Okumura. He is based on a white little boy puppy with long ears. Early in his history, he was promoted as part of the "Baby Cinnamon" series.

Biography[edit]

Cinnamoroll's birthday is March 6th. He was born in the distant sky, above the clouds.[2]

When the owner of a small cafe saw a white puppy floating out of the sky like a fluffy cloud she thought "I wonder if he came because he smelled my cinnamon rolls".[3]. Since Cinnamoroll has a curly tail just like a cinnamon roll, she named him "Cinnamon".

One day Cinnamoroll flew to a place where he found a sister at Café Cinnamon. In the present day they live together and Cinnamoroll works as a "signboard dog" for Café Cinnamon.
