Mamegoma is a San-X character series created in 2005. They appear as cute baby seals, available in white, blue and pink (some variations in black). Their name comes from the prefix mame (or 'bean' in english) referring to them as being a miniature form of something; joined with the suffix goma which comes from gomafuazarashi (or 'sesame seed-mottled seal' in literal English) which is the Japanese name for the spotted seal. Joined together this would make their name mean: Miniature Spotted Seal.
