Now that it’s starting to get chilly around these parts, how about a warm hot pot stave off the cold?
Presenting… the Hot Pot (Nabe, 鍋) Rilakkuma Plush Set!
I was really excited about this purchase, and it’s probably going to my major investment this winter! Since I have a bad habit of splurging during the spring/summer, I usually cut down significantly on buying during the winter months, but this year, this hot pot set is my exception!
I definitely have too much fun with this set – assembling and reassembling them in different configurations can be quite therapeutic haha.
This wonderful plush set was released as a Rilakkuma Store Exclusive on November 1st.
Nabe (鍋) refers to a variety of Japanese hot pot dishes that are traditionally cooked and kept hot by portable stoves in the middle of the dining table – a really great way to share a meal among family and friends!
Amazingly, this plush set not only comes with an adorable collection of Rilakkuma hot pot ingredients, but since it was originally intended to serve as a gift set, it also comes with a gift certificate to order hot pot ingredients out of a choice of 11 different hot pot combinations!
Yum! Haven’t picked which one I’d like yet – they all look really great! Just in time for winter, too!
What kind of noodle dishes is your favorite? Personally, I am quite partial to udon soups.

Great! Love their little daruma of each other. Would love to see a combo plush with all three of them like they did for this year’s Year of the Horse 2014 Rilakkuma Store Exclusive. The sheep is Simon’s zodiac year, so hopefully I can pick one up for him!
