'A life-size bear mascot with red cheeks and no voice' Reminds me of my boss in meetings after a skinful the night before.

The Bank of Japan has estimated that Kumamon-related products created an economic impact worth whopping 123.2 billion yen in the past two years alone.

Over $1.2 Billion in economic impact from a mascot. Unreal.

Um, a press conference with a character that doesn't speak? Yeah, that makes perfect sense (in Japan).

Kumamon is just pure brilliance. Cuteness does print money in Japan and yeah, I am guilty of being on board since I first saw Kumamon.

Whomever came up with Kumamon should be quite pleased with themselves, it's a home run!
