Studio Ghibli is very well-loved with its many films and characters that have whimsical and nostalgic vibes to it. Sanrio has many characters that are gender-inclusive and always trendy and sentimental with families alike. There are other popular series too, such as Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z, with precious characters that can be incorporated with the baby shower’s theme.
