But what ARE Studio Ghibli Soot Sprites?
Studio Ghibli Soot Sprites are pitch black fuzzy balls of soot, with big eyes and long arms and legs… But that doesn’t quite describe their appeal. Their Japanese name is Susuwatari or Makuro Kurosuke. The early subtitles of the Studio Ghibli films called them “black soots” or “dust bunnies”… it wasn’t until Disney did the English sub-titles that they became known as Soot Sprites.
These wonderful little creatures first make their appearance in the film “My Neighbor Totoro”. When Satsuki, Mei and their father move into a home, they find it is LOADED with Susuwatari… but because they are a ‘good family’, the little sprites move off to find another home.
Later we meet the Soot Sprites again in “Spirited Away”, where they work for Kamaji in the boiler room. He tells Chihiro that they will turn back in to soot if they don’t have a job to do… so he keeps them busy moving coal all day. One of my favorite scenes is when Lin feeds them kompeitō , a Japanese Candy.

Soot Sprite Candy
In the movie “Spirited Away”, Lin feeds the worker Soot Sprites kompeitō … a Japanese Sugar Candy. She actually feeds them just like you would feed chickens!
Seeing the Sprites scramble around to get their colorful piece of sugar candy is such a wonderful little scene.
Now you can try kompeitō. This sugar candy tastes just like sugar… no added flavors, just color. You could add it to a cup of tea to sweeten it…
Or you could lay some on the ground for your friends the Soot Sprites.

Soot Sprite Earrings and Soot Sprite Necklace
Jewelry is always a nice gift to give and receive, and Soot Sprite Jewelry is even MORE fun to get! Cute stud earrings and an adorable Soot Sprite cabochon necklace would make a nice set…Plus, I love the candies floating around the sprite in the cabochon. Just a little pop of color.
Soot Sprite Slippers
I HATE cold feet… and now that winter is arriving, just plain socks aren’t enough to keep my toes toasty. Luckily, my daughter gave me these delightful Soot Sprite Slippers.
They are soft and squishy, perfect for walking around the house, or lounging on the sofa. The Big POOFY Soot Sprite on the toes is so cute! And they keep my feet warm.
For the price, it’s a great gift! (Low cost, big impact)
(And if you gather a little dust on the bottom of them while walking around, you can easily bang it off).
Soot Sprite Plush
Ok, ordinarily, you wouldn’t really think about cuddling up to soot… but exceptions will be made for these cute Soot Sprite Plush toys. You just have to make the very difficult decision… which one do you want???
With or without legs? With a suction to hang it?
Soot Sprite Coin Purse
Looks like Soot Sprites can help you keep track of your change and other small items that would normally rattle around in your purse. I love the fuzzy Soot Sprite shaped coin purse, but I can see how the leaf shaped bag would be much more practical, and much less likely to pick up wads of unknown sticky stuff from my purse…
Did you find it? The perfect gift for the Soot Sprite Fan on your List?
