Is it summer yet? Hahaha it certainly feels like it here in Florida – the weather is really heating up, and I’ve exchanged long pants and jackets for shorts and tank tops!
That makes it a perfect day to introduce Fansclub Aloha Rilakkuma!
Doesn’t he look happy with all of his Aloha Rilakkuma family? So relaxed!
I do love this series a lot because it shows Rilakkuma doing so many activities: grocery shopping, hula dancing, surfing, and even sun tanning!
This adorable hula-dancing Rilakkuma was released by Fansclub in April 2013, during the height of the Aloha Rilakkuma release! He really gets me in the mood for sunny skies and warm weather :)
Thank you so much again and again to Trinie, for sharing this beautiful and relaxing Aloha Rilakkuma with me – he really fits in so well with the all of the other Aloha bears! :D
In other news, there are a few new things in the Rilakkuma world, like the Stripes Stripes Everyday Series Caravan plushie!
How cute, a Korilakkuma caravan plushie! So nice to see the other members of the Rilakkuma crew getting some attention!
Simon, our resident Rilakkuma artist, really loves the little plush striped bear that appears in this series – I think he wants one just like the one featured in the caravan (bottom left corner), but I don’t think they’re for sale haha. I do like those Rilakkuma proportions for a maybe Craftholic-inspired bear hehehe.
And I’m also happy to share that another iteration of the Enherb x Rilakkuma collaboration was just released for this spring!
I love this collaboration! The strawberry rose honey looks really yummy, and I always love the illustrations that are paired with the teas :)
That’s all for now – off to study antibiotics! I hope everyone is enjoying the season!
Yay what a nice assortment of hawaiian themed bears! Hopefully san-x will release a fully striped bear!! (Or maybe you can find the big doll that the big bears will hold).
I do wonder what San-X ends up doing with all the Caravan props – they must be around somewhere!
Maybe I will sew one for you :3
Isn’t Fanclub Aloha Rilakkuma adorable? I love the way he dances! :)) so happy that Trinie shared this Rilakkuma with you. He is a gem! Like Simon, I too am totally besotted with the striped bear plushie ! Maybe it is Rilakkuma’s stripy cousin?!?:)) sigh! Stripy cousin is not for sale.:((
Would just love to try that Rose honey! Hope that Ariel will try it and let us know if it is yummy!!😋
Yes, it’s sad that the stripey cousin is not for sale, aww :[ But it nice that even Rilakkuma has his own plushie :D
I do love Fansclub Aloha Rilakkuma – he really matches so well with all the other Alohas, so perfect :D
He’s so cute and truly does look happiest with his aloha family! That would be so cool if the striped Rilakkuma was for sale but maybe he isn’t because it would be too different for the Rilakkuma image. Oo wow you can already wear shots, Florida sounds so nice~I want to try that honey for sure :D
Yeah, I love this new Aloha Rilakkuma so much! Aloha Rilakkuma was one of my favorite series from last year :)
Let us know if you end up trying that honey!
In the flier above advertising the caravan, there’s a large Kiiroitori. I saw this plush at the rilakkuma store in Osaka, but it was not for sale. Do you think they will offer this size Kiiroitori? I want it so bad. I currently live in Hyogo Prefecture and I frequent the Rilakkuma store in Osaka. You have a very nice blog and a great collection. :)
Thanks for visiting my blog!
As for the large Kiiroitori, I think it’s just a prop for the Caravan (like the blue/white striped bear) and they don’t usually end up selling those, which is pretty sad because I always love the plush props they use! I would be so happy if they eventually sold some like those! I really wanted the striped bear to give to Simon, and I always wondered where those plush props ended up after the season is over…
