My newest Rilakkuma plushie arrived in the mail!
He’s from the current Rilakkuma Chicken/Egg Series, which was first released this past October. However, this plushie in particular is part of the Autumn 2012 Caravan. The seasonal caravan is a series of special events held by San-X: they bring out the (larger than) life-sized characters in themed outfits and have special products like this plushie that aren’t regularly available in stores. To compare, the version sold in stores wears a full (removable) chicken suit instead of a poncho:
I purchased one of the full chicken suit Rilakkuma plushies a while back, and will be giving him to my sister as a Thanksgiving gift since she’s been asking for months – he’ll have his own post, too!
Oh wow that’s so cute, and the Christmas bag lucky (⌒∇⌒).
Yeah! I don’t know what I’ll be doing with the Christmas bag yet though – feels to cute to part with!
I was wondering where did you get this plush?
I bought it from this ebay seller, harukata, but I don’t think think they are selling this one anymore – they have other Rilakkuma plushies, though!
