New Emoji’s On The Way Later This Year

The Unicode Consortium (the group that runs the official set of Emojis), have announced 117 new ones that will be hitting our phones later this year.

Among them: a flip-flop, a roller skate, an accordion, a magic wand, a boomerang, a toothbrush, a ladder, and a toilet plunger.

Also coming are Emojis for the transgender flag and transgender symbol, ninjas, bubble tea and piñatas.

Another new one that many are looking forward to is the new “people hugging”, which is said to be a lot less grabby and creepy than the current hugging smiley face.

Here’s what they will look like:
