Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.
McDonald's in Japan are getting in on the Sanrio popularity contest by offering tie-in toys of some of the frontrunners. Pom Pom Purin, Cinnamon, My Melody, Gudetama, Little Twin Stars, Hello Kitty, Kirimi-chan, and three of the bands from Show By Rock!! are currently in the lead. All the mascots are getting their own prizes with the exception of the Show By Rock!! bands. For some reason, the entry is instead represented by The President.

- SHOW BY ROCK!! Mascot Band Disk Set
- Cinnamoroll Ruler
- My Melody Ribbon Picture Frame
- Hello Kitty Folding Comb
- Little Twin Star Toothbrush Case
- Kirimi-chan Stationary Set

The president item isn't listed on Sanrio's site, but it looks to be a keychain.
