13 Emojis That Don’t Exist But Should

Hello again, Emoji lovers! Last we spoke, I was pleased to discover that you all love these little text stickers as much as I do. You gave me some awesome Emoji suggestions and insights, which I am forever thankful for. But I got to thinking: there’s really NOT an Emoji for every occasion. We’re missing a few.

Sure, I love getting creative with Emojis. But sometimes, I have to get a little too creative. I’ll say it: the Emoji library is incomplete. There are TWO calendars to choose from, one tear away and one desktop, but no sandwich?! I understand that Emojis were created in Japan, so my emoticon needs may be different from the emoticon needs in other parts of the world. And I know, beggars can’t be choosers, but I think the app is due for a few updates. It’s time for some new Emojis! I’ll even draw them myself. Just kidding, you guys don’t want that.

Here are the Emojis I think need to be added to the repertoire. And, if you still don’t have Emojis yet – seriously, download the app!

1. Unicorn

I substitute the horse for a unicorn, and add the sparkle. Most of my regular people know what I mean, but sometimes I accidentally send the sparkling horse to somebody new, and then have to backtrack and explain that the horse is meant to represent majestic awesomeness. If we live in a phone where there are not one but TWO Emoji dragons, there can be one nice, fluffy unicorn.

2. Sandwich

The loaf of bread just doesn’t cut it, and the hamburger isn’t the same. How will my friends know I want to go to Subway?

3. Menorah

Again, I understand there’s probably not much use for a menorah in Japan. But since Emojis have become such a hit in America, it would be nice if the next update included a more well-rounded library of holiday items.

4. More racial representation

Speaking of well-roundedness, let’s talk about the serious lack of Emoji race representation. There’s one person with dark skin, and they’re wearing a turban. While we’re asking for things, I would also like a nondescript blonde. Whenever I reference my blonde friends Emilee or Annie, I have to use the angel, which is total crap, and they know it.

5. Catfish

I’m trying to save Nev and Max some time with this one. People who meet online could send the catfish Emoji and be all like “Are you [catfish]ing me? lol” but then we’ll probably see them on the show in six months anyway.

6. Magic wand

The crystal ball just doesn’t cut it for me. This one would be good for any and all Harry Potter and/or Arrested Development texts/quote-offs.

7. Cupcake

Cake, cookie, doughnut, flan?, ice cream, chocolate bar and what are potentially dessert kebabs, but no cupcake. You are America’s trendiest dessert, but you are not in the running to become Japan’s next top Emoji. Please pack your knives and go.

8. T-rex

Because whether you’re happy, sad, scared, excited or confused, a T-rex Emoji would be an appropriate response.

9. Smiley wearing the classic disguise mask with the glasses, mustache and big nose

Emoticon? Is that you? Nope, just a man with a mustache wearing glasses! ::giggles::

10. Sexy time

There are a few ways to say you’re excited for later, but none of them are quite right. The kissy smileys are too expected, the people kissing are gross, the whale blowing water is funny, the rain droplets are too aggressive. We need something between the lipstick kiss and the purple devil that says, “I can’t wait to see you later.” But what?!

11. Middle finger

Emoji fingers point every which way. What’s one more?

12. Something hockey-related

Football, basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, rugby, golf, biking (mountain AND road), horse racing, skiing, snowboarding, swimming, surfing, fishing, race car driving, darts, dice, billiards, bowling. And not even a hockey puck.

13. Turkey

What am I supposed to mass text people on Thanksgiving? An acorn? Ooh, maybe the ship and the top hat. Somebody remind me of that one in November.

What Emojis are you missing? Maybe we can get a HelloGiggles expansion pack made!

    I need a “fingers crossed” emoji because the praying hands just don’t apply to me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15103027 Dani Shapiro

      ALWAYS looking for crossing fingers! And butterflies haha.

    BACON! how many times have you been sorely disappointed by the lack of a bacon emoji?! too many times.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1462950114 Alyssa Andrews

    An eye-rolling e-moji! I’d use that bad boy at least four times a day.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=669847060 Natasha Wright

      Beat me to it! I ALWAYS say there needs to be an eye-rolling emoji!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1398889527 Meghan McCoy

      YES!! Eye-rolling! Can’t express enough disappointment that this emoji is missing from my life.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1149330214 Angela Aguilar

    I’m in serious need of a taco emoji.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1074210032 Stephanie Ava Moore

    I love this. I need to integrate emojis more anyway. but man, I would laugh constantly if you were on the other end of my texting conversations!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=18812411 Anna Lee Doughtie

    Number one on my list on emoticon wants right now is a rollerskate.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1049461532 Stephanie Munoz

    Tacos. The emoji is missing Tacos.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10700522 Kelsey Shepard

      YES Tacos!!! I talk about that all the time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=502682113 Kevin Liptak

    Want to tell someone they’re not getting what they want for Christmas.
    Maybe you just want a polite way of saying “No I can’t get ice cream
    with you, dairy makes me poop with the thunder”. How about the “tough
    shit” emoji. Just like you’re normal pile of poo but it would have
    jacked arms and a frown/straining facial expression. My GF needs it so
    lets make it happen!

      omg. That right there sounds amazing. Yes to this! Yessss!

    I’m in serious need of a ninja and a shot glass.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=97900401 Melissa Wiebe

    What about a Canadian flag? I would really like to have one for Canada Day

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=9304661 Sarah Rife

    BACON! The pig and pig snout are not the same!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=655763192 Summer Webb

    TACOS!! Tacos, Tacos, TACOS!! The carousel pony is actually a unicorn- look closely the horn is there. (I spend A LOT of time looking at and for unicorns, trust me) Also, where the hell is the CHAMPAGNE FLUTE emoji? How am I supposed to tell people what my diet consists of without these two emoji’s??

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=717779438 Chaniqua Crook

      Lmao. In love with this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1654951691 Jennifer Marshalek

    You might just be my hero with these suggestions!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=688120809 Sarah Dunham

    Tacos would be great. Maybe a boob for the proud breast feeding. Like Sarah: “Hey Amanda, What are you doing?” Amanda: [boob].

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=662308215 Jessie Gilliam

    I desperately need a barf face emoji.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1482215047 Tabatha Whicher

    Bacon, a pickle, a grasshopper (patience grasshopper just cannot be put into pictures and this saddens me!!).

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=60607584 Rose Eda

    There seriously needs to be a hug emoji!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=42209247 Sarah Beth Pennington

    There needs to be some Harry Potter, Star Wars, and LOTR emojis. Agree with bacon, pickle, and grasshopper. I echo your sentiments of a hockey and middle finger emoji as well. I’m left using long hastags during hockey season. A fingers crossed and barf emoji (even if its just a green faced one) would be great). Animation would help a lot too. And with the addition of the cute cat smilies, why not dogs as well?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005048374881 Brittany Freeman

    I’m going to agree with quite a few of the people that have already commented, TACOS!!!! Tacos and a brunette princess!
    A ninja and barf emoji are also excellent ideas!
