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 Rilakkuma space exploration unit!

With Rilakkuma, there is a cute yellow Kumartian you can move in and out of the spaceship – hello!

… and you can stick the little yellow Kumartian into the spaceship – so cute!! Also, looks like San-X has been promoting a lot of designs with this Rilakkuma pattern (clinging onto something with his head turned to the left).

Korilakkuma has made friends with another set of Kumartians – check out this pink Kumartian saying hello!

And a lovely aqua blue Kumartian on her other side as well!

Who could be inside here?

It’s Kiirotori in a hovercraft! And as a nice completion detail, Kii’s feet are still intact as well!

Tag art! Three beautiful designs that match each of the plushies!

Korilakkuma’s is one of my favorite designs! Look at them trying to communicate in Kumartian language of dango and triangles haha. Though minor discrepancy, in this illustration, the Kumartians have 1 and 3 antennae, but they both have 2 in the plushie!

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!

Cat Series - cover

Meow!

Cat Series - standard plushies

I love their little paws and whiskers, and that they’re all different kinds of cats! Standard plushies for 1,680円 each

Cat Series - pouch and tissue box

And of course, lots of other assorted goodies! Multi-function pouch for 1,500円, and tissue box cover for 2,980円. Since my allergy means cats make me sneeze, the tissue box cover is rather fitting (and useful)!

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!

Can anyone tell me what Kiiroitori is holding?

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!

Lace Bracelets - Nordic

How fashionable!

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!

  1. Oh wow!! I love your space set!! But I told myself, only pick one and it had to be that yellow kumartian and his personal space rocket. However, I think the pink and blue kumartians look very cute too.😊 Oh.. I did not know that it was a hovercraft and first time that I have seen the bottom of it.😄
    I think the bracelets are really cool. My favourite would be the Nordic Series. I think if Rilakkuma wears it, it would be more like a necklace for him.😄
    I think chick looks the cutest in that Sapporo set. 😊

    • Yes, I think the yellow Kumartian with his own rocket is one of the cutest designs I’ve ever seen! Love how one can move the little Kumartian in and out hahaha so much fun to play with :)

      I’m not one for jewelry, so I’d totally let my kumas wear it – they are much more fashionable than I am anyway (not to mention they have more outfits than I do) hahaha

  2. They look so lovely displayed together! I love the little alien rilakkumas, I wish they would make plush of just them! I actually really like the artwork of Space Rilakkuma (maybe because it features a lot of alien rilakkuma, haha).

    The Cats series is so adorable, I’m really debating about whether I should buy it or not. I’m not a fan of cats or rilakkuma but somehow, this combo works!

    The lace bracelets are interesting but I find the workmanship looks a shoddy…

    • YES the little alien Rilakkumas are one of my favorite Rilakkuma designs of all time! I would love to have a whole bucket full of them in all different colors hehehe. And I agree, the artwork is really excellent and detailed for the Space Series – their team of graphic designers deserve a pay raise!

  3. Your haul is awesome!! I love the kumartians~ so much news. I love those bracelets and yay for the cat series. Sapporo is the last anniversary for this them. Fingers crossed for food themes for the next round :D
