Chicken Series Rilakkuma – Caravan Edition!

My newest Rilakkuma plushie arrived in the mail!

Caravan Chicken Rilakkuma - package and gifts

Package also included 3 cute egg-themed Rilakkuma stickers, a Rilakkuma store bag with seal, and a Rilakkuma Christmas 2012 commemorative bag! Yay! If it isn’t already evident from Rilakkuma Lifestyle, I’m a sucker for Rilakkuma+food themes.

Aww, he’s painted an egg!

Cute plaid lining detail on the poncho. Ponchos are my favorite clothing item for Rilakkuma plushies!

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!
