Chicken Series Rilakkuma!

This Rilakkuma was a gift to my sister for Thanksgiving! He is her first themed Rilakkuma (she already has a medium-sized bear like the one I use for Rilakkuma Lifestyle photos). He comes from the same Chicken/Egg Series as the Caravan version I posted earlier, which came out this past October. He also came in the same decorated package as my Hamburger Rilakkuma! This Chicken Rilakkuma has some pretty adorable details:

Chicken suit Rilakkuma - full body shot

He looks so cozy! And he has a front pocket like a kangaroo.

Chicken suit Rilakkuma - lining detail

The inside of his chicken suit is lined with a soft red checkered gingham. This fabric is also used to pad the feet of the suit.

Chicken suit Rilakkuma - tag detail

Fabric tag illustration: looks like Rilakkuma is breaking out of an egg!

Chicken Rilakkuma - removable suit

The costume is so soft and well-made! His chicken suit is actually fully removable, but doing so is tantamount to dressing/undressing a cat so I think that may be more trouble than it’s worth.

Chicken Series Rilakkuma – Caravan Edition!

My newest Rilakkuma plushie arrived in the mail!

Caravan Chicken Rilakkuma - package and gifts

Package also included 3 cute egg-themed Rilakkuma stickers, a Rilakkuma store bag with seal, and a Rilakkuma Christmas 2012 commemorative bag! Yay! If it isn’t already evident from Rilakkuma Lifestyle, I’m a sucker for Rilakkuma+food themes.

Aww, he’s painted an egg!

Caravan Chicken Rilakkuma - plaid lining detail

Cute plaid lining detail on the poncho. Ponchos are my favorite clothing item for Rilakkuma plushies!

He’s from the current Rilakkuma Chicken/Egg Series, which was first released this past October. However, this plushie in particular is part of the Autumn 2012 Caravan. The seasonal caravan is a series of special events held by San-X: they bring out the (larger than) life-sized characters in themed outfits and have special products like this plushie that aren’t regularly available in stores. To compare, the version sold in stores wears a full (removable) chicken suit instead of a poncho:

I purchased one of the full chicken suit Rilakkuma plushies a while back, and will be giving him to my sister as a Thanksgiving gift since she’s been asking for months – he’ll have his own post, too!
