Quick break to announce a great new series: Stripes Stripes Everyday (しましまエブリデイ) Series!
Super cute! Definitely one of Rilakkuma’s most huggable series yet! Not super sure what stripes have to do with penguins and polar bears, like I’m surprised that their standard release plushies have no stripes at all hahaha, but I love it so far!
I think this series has such a cute color scheme and theme! The standard S plushies are each 1,780円, and the polar bear hugging pillow is 3,800円. They also have a lot of other super cute merchandise in this line as well, such as bicycle seat covers and umbrella cases!
As for the Rilakkuma Store Exclusive line, they will be available March 8 for 2000円 each! There will also be special Rilakkuma Store Exclusive bags available in this release, as well. I think they’ll be stocking some of the Rilakkuma version at the San-X Net Shop, too!
It’ll be really exciting to see how this series develops – caravan, anyone?
I think I’ll be ordering a Rilakkuma from the standard release (the blue penguin)! Since this release was leaked, I’ve been waiting for this series to appear so I could make a big Net Shop order :D
Off to study again! Let me know what your thoughts are on the new Rilakkuma Stripes Stripes Everyday Series in the comments!
I hope they will release a striped bear like Rilakkuma has :)
It’s very cute! I love that even Rilakkuma has his own bear plushies :D
Oh for sure they’re going to make a caravan :D They really are going all out with this series and I’m absolute going to try to add these to my collection! I’m not 100% sure but there is a popular polar bear plush in Japan that always has stripes but that might not be the reason. I see it everywhere but don’t know its name and they have other animals too. I’ll be thinking over this mystery for a while. I am so excited for this release though XD
Oh hmm that’s interesting about the polar bear with stripes. Let me know if you figure anything else out about the connection between stripes and arctic animals haha.
Yay I’m so excited for this release, too! As the years go by, I wonder if Rilakkuma and friends will end up being dressed as every animal hahaha
The plushies are from CRAFTHOLIC and they have polar bears with Mt. Fuji on them and just regular bears with stripes but the bears really look similar to the bears Ko and Kii are holding!
Oh hahaha they really do look similar! I do like the idea of Rilakkuma and friends shopping for their own bears like we do hehehe
It’s such a cute idea! I’m excited to see what else they make for this series!!
めっちゃ可愛い☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆ Wish I could buy all of ’em >~< ! Good luck studying ;) 頑張って（＾∇＾）
Thank you so much!! I really need it for this huge exam too hahaha
I get to work, check my e-mails and this was one the first things I saw. It’s so CUTE! I’m definitely going to get these but I’m having trouble deciding whether I will get the standard ones or the store exclusive plush.
Gah, the decisions!
I feel ya haha I always have trouble deciding too!! I feel like I’m always taken by surprise by how utterly cute everything is haha
PS did you see this Sumikko Gurashi post from the San-X Net Shop Blog? http://www.san-x.co.jp/blog/netshop/2014/01/post-399.html
I was thinking of just getting the Rilakkuma standard release and the Rilakkuma Store exclusive chick as they look so matching together but the more I look at ALL the plushies in this series, every one looks cuter and cuter!!!!:(( :))
They are truly so adorable!!!:))
They are really quite cute, and they look so soft! I can’t wait to order them and finally see them in person!! :D
Omg, those penguin ones are just tooooo cute! :D I might have to get myself a set of those :3 thanks so much for sharing! :D
I love this series a bunch! I think I’m also gonna get them too hahaha
Oh god!!! This series is sooooo cute I really love the Polar bear outfit need them to be a part of my collection now haha
This series is really super super adorable!! Definitely one of my more recent favorites, and I really want to add them to my collection too – they look so soft :D
The stripes stripes series is oozing with cuteness!! I want everything soo bad, especially the polar bears and penguin kii!! For the Rilakkuma exclusive playset (the polar bears one) are they each ¥2000 or all three for ¥2000! (Really hoping it’s the second option!)
Ah, wouldn’t it be great to get all 3 for 2000 yen円? Unfortunately, Rilakkuma prices have been going up recently especially for the special edition releases, so each one is 2000 – the price is usually why I don’t get full sets anymore :[
