The 3 Bubwits was the characters I created for The Manila Bulletin’s Funpage. Their look was based on me and my Siblings on our childhood days. They are basically us.
Pammy is the kid with the two ponytails, the only boy is Timo and Nikka is the one with the single ponytail. The bubwits also have pets, a squirell named Squik, and two rabbits Cotton -the white one and Pudding -the brown one.
I honestly did not know that Bubwit is another way to say mouse in Filipino! My mom picked the ‘Bubwit’ name. She said it was catchy and makes her think of something cute or small, she really does call us her three bubwits! Being based on us, its fitting to call the characters Bubwits. Three simple kids and siblings The 3Bubwits are very much relatable to kids.
The Bubwits debuted as a “spot the difference” feature. And has been a staple on the section as well as on corporate giveaways, to bring the Bubwits to a wider audience. The most recognized is the yearly datebook.
The datebook also features colorful illustrations inside.
I also made Christmas wrappers for The Bubwits.
