Trick or treat!


Trick or treat!

Please meet Peko-chan (ペコちゃん), who absolutely loves candy, and Halloween!

The brave little girl isn’t afraid of no ghouls or ghosts — she loves zombie horror flicks, and isn’t afraid to sleep all on her own.

Who will she meet down Halloween street this year?

P/S: Peko-chan is named after candy company Fujiya’s cute mascot, little Peko-chan. おなかがペコペコ (Onaka ga peko peko) simply means “I’m hungry” in Japanese. To those who are celebrating All Hallows’ Eve, I hope you’ll go slow on the sweets! Happy Halloween!
