Not cold enough for penguins where I am right now, but I finally got my hands on a cute new Penguin Rilakkuma plushie!
This arctic delight is part of the Stripes Stripes Everyday Series, released in March 2014. His penguin suit is technically fully removable, but seeing as the only opening is the face hole, I wouldn’t recommend it haha.
The stripeless penguin outfit for the Stripes series is still somewhat of a mystery for me haha but I’m not complaining – this is one of my favorite Rilakkuma animal outfits yet!
Elsewhere across the ocean – anyone a fan of MTV? San-X hosted a Secret Room at this year’s MTV Movie Awards!
Guests at the MTV Movie Awards were about to stop by the booth for free stuff and learn about Rilakkuma – WOW! It would be my dream to be in one of those booths! I hope a San-X Rilakkuma event comes to Florida one day! :D
Check out this interview, too!
I want to meet Rilakkuma!
But speaking of Rilakkuma in Florida…
I went to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando, and I discovered:
A Round One Rilakkuma crane game!
It was at the front of the arcade at the Marvel Super Hero Island, and a ton of people were trying to win a bear – it definitely drew a crowd! Someone got really close to winning a Korilakkuma, and I was so happy to see Rilakkuma being so popular :D
Thought it was kind of interesting that the Round One plushies here in the US have tags piercing the ear, but I think that’s been somewhat of a common thing in the licensed Rilakkumas these days.
In other news, spice up your automobile with these Rilakkuma hubcaps from MLJ!
Wish I could get these for my car hehehe – I definitely appreciate how Rilakkuma is expanding to all types of different merchandise now (I wonder what’s next!). These hubcaps cost a pretty penny at 15000 円 and 17000 円 but they certainly look spectacular!
I hope everyone is enjoying their spring!
