The war is over. The battle is won.

An emoji update is coming on Tuesday and they are, quite wisely, bringing a whole host of incredibly useful new art to our mobile phones. 157 brand new emojis are coming, taking the current total up to a quite frankly ludicrous 2,823 in total.

Have you ever been scrolling through, trying desperately to pick the perfect emoji for a situation and just never finding it? Well, let me tell you: that’s all about to change.

As long as you were looking for an emoji of a llama, or an abacus, or a ginger person, that’s all. About. To change. Here they are folks:

Frizzy hair!

Petri dish!

Shopping receipt!

It will take a while for different operating systems to update, but users can expect to see the new collection on their phone screens within the next month, meaning it won’t be long before you can send out toilet roll and bagel emojis as you see fit.

You can find the full list of all 157 over at Emojipedia along with details of the release.

And for some unknown reason, there is a trailer. So here is that for you to watch, I guess, complete with the music from your friend’s Bali travelling video filmed exclusively on a GoPro:
