Okay haha I know the Harajuku anniversary was way back in June, but I asked my seller to mail me all my Rilakkuma orders in one big box, so I just got them recently!
So happy 1st anniversary, Harajuku Rilakkuma Store! (And happy anniversary to the whole Harajuku Kiddy Land, too!)
And hey, we see Rilakkuma with bananas again! I guess Tokyo is really known for their bananas hahaha.
With all of the food-themed anniversary Rilakkumas, I tend to gravitate towards the foods I like to eat – so I was especially happy to see a crepe theme this year! Crepes are definitely one of my favorite foods :D
Anyway, I thought the pattern on Rilakkuma’s crepe envelope looked familiar… it’s just like my oven mitt from the Egg Series from 2012!
I do think the white/banana yellow combination is a pleasant color scheme!
I also got some event pins, too!
So beautiful, but I don’t really have a place to put them – they’re kind of just leaning against the other plushies in my collection now haha
Great! I hope the Rilakkuma Stores continue with the food trend :D
Harajuku! Wonderful! Cosplay, anyone?
Did you know people cosplay as Rilakkuma sometimes? Even in the US! This one was taken at the Anime Expo in LA this year: http://rilakorila.blogspot.com/2013/07/attack-on-rilakkuma.html
if you don’t mind me asking, who was your seller on this? reason why I ask is it’s so great when sellers include some of the things they got as a special item when they bought the exclusives (like the pins) but not all sellers do so it would be awesome to know for future reference!
I use harukata on eBay – I think a few of the other Rilakkuma bloggers have used this seller in the past as well. Not only does the seller include pins, but also the store bags, too! Really makes it feel like an authentic shopping experience. Shipping is kind of pricey because it’s EMS (with tracking) which is super fast, but I’m impatient haha – so I like this seller a lot!
Actually, I just remembered that the seller included a Harajuku Kiddyland anniversary file folder for me too so thanks for indirectly reminding me to add it to the post haha
Oh, I know that seller but I did not use him since he charges really high shipping fees. By the way, can you take the bears out of the crepe??? I was going to get this set but was not sure if you can take the bears out or not.
You can’t take the bears out without cutting threads (which I really don’t like to do) – they are full bears though, so you can see their legs if you open up the crepe haha
Oh ok, thanks for the info. I thought they were not full bears. I do not like to cut the threads too. I can say that I often leave mine in a bag and not take them out since I am afraid that they will get all dusty and dirty.
Hello Faith!! Great post and pics!! You are very right about the details!! The bananas and strawberries were stuffed behind the bears and I had to pull the fruits out and when I did I thought,’How cute!!’ Hahaha!! Every Rilakkuma in your collection wants to be a crepe now. Any more mittens? Hahaha!!
Yes, I was making super sure that they were banana slices instead of something else, and I was pleasantly surprised that they really looked like banana slices with the seeds!
Teehee, I love these crepe kumas a lot, they look so snug in their crepes!! The other bears want to be just like them, of course.
Ah yes this series is one of my favorites! I love all the details, makes me want food though!
Ha ha your kuma cosplay is awesome I love it! It is a really relaxing pattern huh!
Yep, this is definitely one of my favorites too! I look forward to the anniversary series so much because they always have my favorite foods haha – I wonder how long they’ll continue this food theme?
Awwww so cuteeee! *squeeze*
I love them so much! This Rilakkuma’s eyes are a little close to his nose, which makes him even more squishable I think hahaha
This crepe plushies set is definitely in my top 10 favorite sets. They look so adorable in their little crepes AND with that fruit on thier heads!! Love it, WANT it!! hmmm… now I want a crepe…
Same!! San-X really continues to outdo themselves every year haha, and they really know how to make me hungry for crepes hahaha
These plushies are so cute!
Ahh yes they’re wonderful – Rilakkuma and food, my favorite combination for sure!
Me too. I LOVE Rilakkuma food and dessert themes the most which was what made me interested in them in the first place.
so cute! thanks for all the wonderful pictures! LOL at the oven mitt crepe, so adorable. The pins look beautiful hehe, I don;t have anywhere to put my pins either, I need to find a place to display them ^_^
Yeah me too! I’m kinda hesitant to put them somewhere out there like a purse or lanyard because I’m afraid they’ll get scratched :[
