What is the Mashimaro?

The Mashimaro (마시마로) is a Korean fictional character which resembles a fat rabbit. He is also known as Yupki Tokki (directly translated as "Weird Rabbit").

The weird fat rabbit debuted in a series of Flash animations on the Internet, and its creator is Korean Kim Jae-in.


Mashimaro was created by Kim Jae-in

Have you seen this soft toy? Do you own one? Would you like to own one? Maybe buy one for your girlfriend?

Trivia: The name "Mashimaro" originated from the creator's niece/nephew mispronouncing the word "marshmallow".

Nowadays, there are many Mashi Maro products on sale. You can find the Mashi Maro stamp on interesting items from the normal plush toys to car and fashion accessories.

Mashimaro is a funny little thing. My oldest sister loves Mashimaro and has a big plush toy. My other sister is more into Pucca.
