Lawson Aloha Rilakkuma Playset!

Wah, I can’t believe I ordered this back in March and I’m just now photographing it haha – though in my defense, it only arrived after I came back from Asia.

Anyway, here it is, at long last: the Lawson x Aloha Rilakkuma Playset!

Rilakkuma x Lawson - Aloha Rilakkuma - full

Everyone’s going shopping!

Rilakkuma x Lawson - Aloha Rilakkuma - Rilakkuma, cart, and lei

Rilakkuma and his undetachable cart! His flower lei is removable though.

Rilakkuma x Lawson - Aloha Rilakkuma - Korilakkuma

This Korilakkuma is so wild to me haha because she’s proportionally much smaller than the Rilakkuma, like she could be Rilakkuma’s plushie… and she herself is holding an Aloha Rilakkuma plushie? Hahahaha I guess it’s cool that Korilakkuma goes shopping for Rilakkuma plushies just like we do.

Rilakkuma x Lawson - Aloha Rilakkuma - Kiiroitori

Eeee this Kiiroitori is so cute and small! And he bears a striking resemblance to the Kiiroitori from the Happiness series (2007) – I guess Kiiroitori has always been in charge of holding the money!

Rilakkuma x Lawson - Aloha Rilakkuma - items

My favorite details: Hawaii coffee, Rilakkuma cookies, and a Kiiroitori honeypot with a Lawson bag to take them home in!

Lawson/HMV started taking pre-orders for this set way back in February of this year – wow that was a long time ago! They sold out before the pre-order deadline of April 15, and were finally sent out in mid-June!

I actually haven’t finished covering all the cool Rilakkuma things my dad bought in Japan, so here’s another entry that jives with today’s Aloha Rilakkuma theme!

Kabaya Aloha Rilakkuma - front

I assembled this one myself!

Kabaya Aloha Rilakkuma - top

Well assembly is pretty easy – just 2 stickers for the background and the ground, and then fitting the 2 yellow boards and the figurines in the right spot!

My family really likes the guitar-playing Rilakkuma because there’s an old photo of my dad playing the guitar in exactly the same pose and expression hahaha so it’s kind of like seeing my dad in bear form.

This figurine set was made by Kabaya under domestic license – Kabaya seems to be mostly a sweets company, which makes sense (I guess) because this set also inexplicably came with an unmarked bag of candy inside (what).

This set is pretty cool because there’s a little link at the bottom so that you can connect it to other figures like it! Cool idea! I wonder if my dad will collect any more…

Anyway, just as a heads up, I’m starting medical school on August 5 – I really have no idea how much free time I’ll have (if any, yikes), but I’ll try to still keep posting when I can because surprisingly, Rilakkuma mania actually keeps me grounded and focused hahaha. I mean, Mary makes it work as a doctor AND a mom AND collecting way more than just Rilakkumas so we’ll see how well I can do haha

  1. Wow, has it really been that long since you ordered this plush? It’s really adorable though! I love Kiiroitori the best, with the sunglasses and the purse, he’s ready to go shipping!

    Korilakkuma is almost the same size as Kiiroitori, haha. I really like that figurine, it’s so cute and relaxing to look at.

    Good luck with medical school! Haha, Mary is the master at time management it seems XD. I’m only working at the moment and even I don’t make any blog posts >_<

    • Kiiroitori is so cute!! I think he’s such a perfect size haha, just about the size of a golf ball. The only problem is that I can’t seem to get his sunglasses to fit on his eyes and stay, but maybe they were just meant to sit on top of his head haha

  2. I love this set ^_^ it just makes me smile every time I look at each little accessory from this playset, the details are lovely! The little figures are too cute! I like Kori’s dress a lot, it’s so pretty hehe, it’s so cool that your family loves rilakkuma too, that is just too awesome~ now I really want to see that photo you mentioned to see the bear resemblance lol

    Anyway, good luck with med school, I am sure you will do well! And props to Mary for being super woman ^_^ she really is the master of time management hehehe

    • Yes, the details really make me smile! I was just looking up my KFC x Rilakkuma box, and this Lawson Aloha set really looks just like the illustration! Even the cookie bags and the coffee are the same design hahaha it’s so cute!

  3. Aww the figures are so cute!! They match well with the Lawson plushie, I’m happy you got yours ;) it’s funny how fast that one sold out!

    Congrats on going to medical school, hope it’s not too stressful and you can relax like Rilakkuma sometimes he he. Yes Mary defiantly knows how to do it all~ I hope you get time to post, I always like reading your posts :D

    • Yeah, my dad has such good taste in Rilakkuma toys! I just have tunnel vision with plushies, I guess haha

      I hope I can get some time to post too! I have a few more on the way thanks to you haha, so I’ll definitely try to make some free time as school starts up – if not, I’ll at least try to keep up with everyone else’s posts haha

  4. Thanks for sharing! They are so cute!! The little grocery goods are so kawaii! I don’t have this playset so it’s nice to see detailed photos of them!

    Haha, thanks for the compliment! It can get v busy w med school but I’m sure you should still be able to continue enjoying Rilakkuma and blogging! Though, if you ever feel like you need to talk etc about life/stress etc, feel free to message me :3 it’s normal and expected to feel overwhelmed when you first start off, but don’t worry – the years pass sooner than you think, and before you know it, you’ll be a fully fledged doctor making big $$$ and buying all the Rilakkumas you’ve ever wanted harharharhar :3

    • Thanks so much! I’m really excited to finally start medical school, but I know it’s a really long and difficult journey so I’m already kind of bracing myself.

      It is really encouraging to know that a fellow Rilakkuma/plushie fan like you has survived the journey and still has time to live a happy life outside of work!! You’re really an inspiration, and a great reminder that there’s always time in life for Rilakkuma hahaha

      • Hehe :D good to hear you are excited about it! It’s a very rewarding career and the journey may be long and at times difficult, but it’s definitely all worth it in the end! And yes! Please don’t lose sight of enjoying life OUTSIDE med school! :D And Rilakkuma & blogging is a good place to start!!!!!!!!!

        And thank you, you’re too kind hehe, I just found my happy medium :D you can and will too!
