Rilakkuma x JINS PC collaboration!



There is a new Rilakkuma collaboration in Japan! This time, it is a project with J!NS PC, which has a chain of spectacles shops in Japan. 
About J!NS: The frames of JINS eyewear created by Japanese designers are specially designed to fit the face and head shapes of Japanese. Studying the Japanese skull structure as well as the subtle curves of nose pads and arms, we have come to offer an ever comfortable fit for Japanese. JINS continues to spend its time and effort to develop comfortable, safe and lightweight eyewear. Our concern is not only maintaining comfort and safety but also introducing great looks. Each of our shops regularly carries over 1,200 frames from classic to fashionable styles to serve every customer’s individual needs. Find your best frame in your favourite colour and style.




Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori are carved (?) onto the sides of the spectacles frame! 


Different colored frames are set for each character and only Rilakkuma has two colors! And it seems that the frames are shaped slightly different too. 


This Korilakkuma specs look really feminine with the whole pink color look. Prices of these spectacles are set as 4900 yen each excluding tax, which is around SGD 66-68? Totally affordable. You can get them from 3rd September 2014 onwards in any J!NS shop. 


My favourite has got to be Kiiroitori's version as my face is rather round and I love squarish looking specs. 


These spectacles also come with a special looking box with Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori printed inside. 


Look at the plushies! They are totally adorable. We are hoping that we can get some of these plushies when we are travelling down to Japan next month! They look so geeky but in a cute way, with their specs and phone. Too irresistible and just look at the tag! It's different from the usual ones so this is a must get item for us! 


For Rilakkuma bags lovers, they also came up with a plain tote printed with geeky Rilakkuma! Comapred to other items, this looked really plain though. Not complaining about this collaboration as they are just too cute!!! 

Lastly, this is my favourite Rilakkuma video clip! The details and that realistic feel of the video made me fell in love with it! Click to watch it now!

Korilakkuma: 185 x 145 x 75 mm
Rilakkuma: 160 x 145 x 100mm



These are the limited edition Rilakkuma Wedding theme this year! Previously we've blogged about the wedding plushies that fans made using Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma and we really hoped that San-X will come up with a theme plushies for it and here it is!!! 

We thought of Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma being the groom and bride respectively but San-X also came up with the Korilakkuma Groom and Rilakkuma Bride version! This made our day even though we have mixed feelings for latter. We still prefer the Rilakkuma Groom version. 

They will be released in many Rilakkuma Stores in Japan on 13 September 2014, retailing at 6000 yen (exclusive of tax) and since this is a limited edition, they are sold as whilst stock last! Mark your calendars if you are living in Japan and get a pair! 

We will be going to Japan that period and hopefully we can get our paws on them! Kyaaaa~ 

If you'd like to get one through us, please email us at contact.rilakkuma@gmail.com and we will try our best to get it for you. No guarantees though, since it is a limited edition.

Rilakkuma Christmas 2014

リラックマ クリスマス 2014 限定版

credits: San-X

The much anticipated Rilakkuma Christmas series is now out! Previously, Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori wore Christmas themed suits and they were released as S sized plush. However, for 2014's Christmas series, San-X came up with a very different merchandise.An embroidered hanging advent calendar and Christmas tree tapestry.

Tapestry dimensions: 630 x 550 mm
Material: Cotton, felt, wood and embroidery material

This is to be sold as a set together with 24 mini plush toys. Among these mini plush toys, there are gifts, candy canes, pancakes and also the mini Rilakkuma and friends. These toys are mobile and you can place them anywhere on the calendar or tree.

The advent calendar is used to store 24 different items (or in this case, mini plushies) in 24 pockets to countdown to the 25th day, which is Christmas day. So each day, you are supposed to remove one item from the pockets and hang the mini plush on the tree. Once the items are fully transferred over, you have a fully decorated tree on Christmas day! Isn't it fun to do it?

Mini plush dimensions: 120 x 70 x 40mm
Material: Cotton

To make things even more interesting, this set also comes with ball chain that allows you to string the toys you like and customize your own Christmas themed hanging charm! You can hang them on your school bag, handbag or even laptop bag. 

Since they comes with a string loop, San-X also showed that you can use them on normal Christmas tree and hang them together with other Christmas ornaments! 

If you have a rather large tree, I would suggest that you place some of your S size plushies into socks that you can get from DAISO for 2 bucks each and hang them! You can also make use of this festive season to display your full collection of Rilakkuma Christmas plushies in your living room. 

We really can't wait to get these hanging toys for this Christmas! 

If you are interested in getting them, you might like to contact us at contact.rilakkuma@gmail.com :)

And this month, we see the return of Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori's sandwich/cookie cutter! This item was very popular back then and we are very excited to see it back on the catalog. 

Again there is no Korilakkuma cutter but then again, Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma are very similar. 

credits: San-X

The item that got us very very excited is the pancake pan! We are planning to bring in small quantity for this pan as we are unsure about the durability of the pan. It is meant to be used on a stove. Another plus point for this product is that it is made in Japan! As most of you would know, Rilakkuma items are mostly made in China so we are very happy to see a made in Japan product! Japan products are always of very high quality :)

There are also a few more items that are published in the latest San-X catalog but we'll share them on another day. 



Till then, have a happy Rilakkuma day everyone.
