About Line Character
Brown the bear and Cony the rabbit are the most adorable things to ever hit Japan, and to think they started out simply as emojis of sorts for virtual stickers. Today, there are entire stores dedicated to each LINE character from the Japanese social media app LINE by Naver, which works on smartphones and personal computers and allows people to text print, audio, and video messages. People can also use virtual stickers on the app — and the stickers feature characters from pop culture as well as some original to the app, such as Brown and Cony. They are supposed to be dating, and their opposite personalities complement each other — Brown is extremely laid-back, while Cony is a bit on the enthusiastic and moody side. Today, you can find plenty of LINE character merchandise featuring the two animals, along with their pals. Plush versions of Brown and Cony are among the most popular items, especially the 8-inch dolls that wear shirts that say "I love Cony" and "I love Brown." Pillows, toys, key chains, belt covers, headphone plugs and figurines featuring the characters are all available among the vast inventory on eBay.
