The Next Round Of Emojis Are Coming And Will Include, an Accordion, A Boomerang And A Non-Gendered Santa

So many options!

The Unicode Consortium is the group that runs the official set of EMOJIS, and they just announced the 117 new ones that will be hitting our phones this year.

Some of the new emojis are:  A yellow smiley face wearing Groucho Marx glasses, a ninja, blueberries, a seal, several different bugs, a rock, a tombstone, a feather, a roller skate, a flip-flop, an accordion, a magic wand, a boomerang, a toothbrush, a needle and thread, a ladder, a toilet plunger, an actual human heart, a hook, a piñata, and a hand making a pinching gesture like a mafia guy would use in a movie while talking and gesturing.


The emojis also focus heavily on gender.  They’ve added the transgender flag and transgender symbol, along with non-gendered versions of a person in a tux, a person in a wedding dress, a person feeding a baby, and Santa Claus.
