Bijou is one of main character in Hamtaro. She is love interest of Hamtaro. In the English version she speaks with a French accent.
She is voiced by Kazusa Murai in the Japanese version and Chantal Strand who also voices Diamond Tiara in the English version.
She is a small, beautiful, cute snowy white hamster with teal blue eyes. Her fur is styled into two pigtails. She wears two blue bows.
She has a huge crush on Hamtaro (this is proven in the first episode, when she winked at him after their dancing performance).
She is a somewhat unworldly hamster who loves her blue ribbons, but she is not above getting dirty when she needs to help her friends, and has been known to be generous and helpful.
She used to live in France before moving to where she is now, but she feels attached to Japan and has even refused to go back to France.
- In the French dub of the anime, Bijou comes from Russia instead of France.
- In the Japanese version, she speaks normal Japanese and adds the words "dechuwa" (でちゅわ) (most likely a hamster version of "desu wa") at the end of her sentences.
- Her name is French for "Jewel".
