Quite delayed posting about them on my part, but I blame school for that haha: check out the Rilakkuma Store/Kiddyland Exclusive Space Series Rilakkuma plushies!
The Space Series is really one of my favorites!! Excellent craftsmanship (as always), and I can’t believe how adorable the Kumartians are!
I keep playing with the yellow Kumartian and putting him in different places throughout the day hehehe. How fantastic that Bear Nation now boasts a successful space program :D
This cosmic set was released as a Rilakkuma Store and Kiddyland exclusive for the Space Series on July 12!
In other news, lots of new releases coming! The Cat Series leaked a few months ago, but check out the new official Rilakkuma Cat Series page!
So lovely to see the marketing for this series starting up – we can expect this series to come out some time in October of this year, so stay tuned! I’m still crossing my fingers for a taiyaki-themed special edition plush!
The official name for this series is のんびりネコテーマ, which roughly translates to “relaxing cat theme” – pretty straightfoward haha.
In addition, the Sapporo Rilakkuma Store is celebrating their 3rd anniversary!
Looks like Rilakkuma and friends are getting in touch with their agricultural side, and donning denim overalls for harvest! Super fitting, as Hokkaido ranks first in Japan for agricultural production, and is home to the Sapporo Agricultural College!
These mini-farmers will be a cool 1,500円 each, and will be released on September 6th!
And finally, for something a little different, check out these new Rilakkuma lace bracelets!
So interesting! Apparently, these bracelets can withstand water and rust, and are meant for people who have metal allergies – how thoughtful! I think these look light and fun for the end of summer!
These bracelets will be available in many different stores, and will be 1,000円 each. Hehehe, if I got these, I’d probably just let my kumas wear them.
I have a few more bears (space and otherwise) to write about, but in the meantime, what do you all think of the new releases? I would love to hear!
On the school side, my school work is really ramping up! I’m studying heart sounds and murmurs all day now, so hopefully I’ll be a pro soon!
