The series represents stop-motion designs made of cotton wool, featuring a white bunny named Mofy. She goes on daily adventures to help her to understand and cope with her emotions.[2]


Takehiko Ohya, the manager of Global Business Group Licensing and Sony Creative Products says:

"With an established appeal in a number of kawaii markets, not to mention excellent ratings on one of the UK's most popular children's programming strands, the time is right to announce the expansion of Mofy's presence in Europe – and where better to do so than at BLE? We look forward to meeting potential partners at BLE and telling them more about this uniquely appealing property."

The merchandise had been releasing apps, books and magazines, sticker books, digital publications, and, of course, plush, stationery, back to school, bedding, bags and purses, personal care items, DVDs, apparel, activity books, games, puzzles, toys and accessories. The appeal promoted with magazines, shopping malls, celebrities and retail corners as well as popular Mofy-themed live appearances, special events and even exhibitions.
