Tare Panda, also known as Lazy Panda or Flat Panda was born in 1995 in Japan. It gained
popularity in 1999 in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and soon, there was lots of Tare Panda merchandise
in the market. Its japanese name 'Tare' means 'hang' and therefore his name is simply 'Hanging
Panda'. (Funny name, don't you all agree? ^_^) Anyway, I too, got to know this cute little
panda in 1999 when I brought a T-shirt with Tare Panda on it.
