Sonic the Hedgehog

A little something for 'old school' video game and cartoon lovers. Sonic blasted onto the scene in 1991 as a mascot for SEGA (Nintendo had Mario) and since then, he's starred in games, five different cartoon series and a TON of spin-offs. Now, you can bring Sonic to your BBM thanks to a brand new sticker pack having now arrived in the BBM Shop.
