So what are kigurumis?


Kigurumis (kee-goo-ROO-mee) originated in Japan and have become a craze ever since. They are ridiculously comfortable onesies, made of super soft materials, for adults that come in animal or animated character designs and can be found at Montreal’s Panda Parade location or online at Kigurumi.ca. Whether you want to wear an animal onesie, such as a cat, sloth, or unicorn, or you’d rather relive your childhood and wear a Winnie the Pooh or Minnie Mouse onesie, the choice is all yours!

The Genius Behind It All


Maria Pham-Beaupré is the founder of Panda Parade Inc. and the creator of Kigurumi.ca. What started out as a hobby for Maria back in 2011, quickly became a full-time job and she is undeniably one of the most successful onesie retailers in Canada. Due to her success with introducing the Japanese “kigurumi” adult onesies, she is now known as one of the first Canadian retailers to bring these high-quality onesies to Canada. Kigurumi.ca has become an online sensation, whereas Panda Parade Inc. now has two physical locations: one in Toronto and one in Montreal. The site offers a vast inventory of fun merchandise. Aside from adult onesies, it also offers kid onesies, apparel, accessories, and home decor—all anime-inspired of course.
