There isn’t a time in recent memory like the past two years. It’s perfectly understandable if you’re feeling burnt out and your outlook on life is a little bleak. But it’s not all doom and gloom—give yourself a mood-booster in the form of a cute Quby lamp! You might already be using Quby stickers on WhatsApp, but did you know there is an extensive range of Quby-branded merchandise out there? From bedside lamps to shopping-ready tote bags, let the adorable smiley creature bring cuteness into your everyday life.
What Is Quby? And Where Is It From?
Characterised by its rosy cheeks, abnormally huge head, and stick-like limbs, Quby (also known as Pentol) was created by Zhong Chaoneng in 2015 for the popular instant messaging platform WeChat. The first sticker pack was so successful that Zhong left his day job to become a full-time sticker designer.
Multiple sticker packs later, Quby is now used by millions of people in everyday conversations on many platforms. Whether it’s sadness or joy, cheerful or depressed, there’s always a Quby sticker to convey your inner feelings without needing words.
