Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow plushies! + New! Airplane Rilakkuma + Christmas 2014 Net Shop Exclusive!

Hello again! Now that I’m settling back into the swing of things, I’m so happy to share my new Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow plushies!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - full

New additions: Rilakkuma as Dr. Yellow plushie and hugging pillow, and Rilakkuma Store exclusive Dr. Yellow train operator!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - hugging pillow and train plushie

Love these two! The hugging pillow is for my sister, and the smaller plushie was chosen by Simon!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - train side detail

For the train plushie and hugging pillow, lovely decals on the side that make them look like real Dr. Yellows, with the JR logo, too!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - front detail, cars

“T4” stands for the set designation of the Class 923 Dr. Yellow! Hehehe I think these look kind of like faces.

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - back

And a shoutout to their series name on their backs!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - store exclusive full

Ready to work! The Rilakkuma Store Exclusive (my pick, hehe): Classic Model 923!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - pouch detail

With a super cute Dr. Yellow car cross-body!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - store exclusive hat detail

A wonderful hat to match his friends’!

Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow - tag art

Tag art! The design is the same for all of them, but their border color is different! The hugging pillow is grey, the Rilakkuma Store Exclusive (with T-shirt) is blue, and the Rilakkuma as Dr. Yellow plushie is white – if you have another item from this set, what color was your tag?

I love the bright yellow, though their color scheme reminds me a lot of a big yellow school bus hehehe.

These fast and furious bears were part of the Rilakkuma Meets Dr. Yellow Series, released in July 2014! As I mentioned in a previous post, the San-X Net Shop crashed when I tried ordering on release day, so my sister was kind enough to order the hugging pillow and train plushie on my behalf when I was in the Dominican Republic! Also, happy to add another Rilakkuma-themed San-X box to my collection too hehehe.

I don’t know, there’s something about these train bears that I’m really drawn to haha; I can’t stop myself from ordering all of them! I never thought of myself as a huge transportation fan, but as it turns out, I think I have the most plushies from the transportation/train series than any other in my collection.

Of course, like these Dr. Yellow bears, the train of Rilakkuma keeps on rolling! Following the transportation theme, check out the new Airplane Series!

Airplane Series - plushies

Looks like they’re flying Rilakkuma Airlines! Plushie for 1,680円, and phone charm plushie for 740円.

Airplane Series - travel items

Of course, travel items for your flight! The design and color scheme reminds me a lot of the Bonjour Series from 2010! Neck pillow for 2,000円, slippers for 1,500円, and eye mask for 1,000円.

Looks like these will be available at the major Japanese airports throughout the year – what a cool collaboration!

My mom usually has a layover on her way to the Philippines, so maybe I’ll ask her to scope these out for me when she makes her next trip!

Looking forward a few months, check out the new Christmas 2014 San-X Net Shop Exclusive – WOW, it’s a Rilakkuma advent calendar!

Christmas 2014 Net Shop Exclusive - both sides

So festive!

Christmas 2014 Net Shop Exclusive - calendar detail

On each day of December, take a new ornament out of its pocket…

Christmas 2014 Net Shop Exclusive - tree full

… and place it anywhere on the tree! And have a fully decorated tree on Christmas Day!

Christmas 2014 Net Shop Exclusive - ornaments

A sample of the plushie ornaments! I don’t really understand that half Rilakkuma in the pile down there – looks like his bottom half is missing!

So clever! Pick a new Rilakkuma plushie ornament for each day in December leading up to Christmas to decorate the tree! Really cute – I love the little snowbears hehehe.

Alternatively, you can attach the little plushie ornaments onto a keychain, and just use them for festive decoration.

My family has an advent calendar, and it’s so fun to use every Christmas!

It seems a little early to think about Christmas for me, but haha who knows? This festive advent calendar costs 18,000円, and the San-X Net Shop is taking pre-orders for this cute set until September 7.

Whew! In other news, today was my first day back in school starting my second year in medical school! We’re jumping right in learning about cardiopulmonary pathophysiology – I hope this year was as good as the last’s!

As always, more bears to post about, which is only bound to get more severe as I have recently took on a paid tutoring job at school haha. Stay tuned!
