Dimensions: 220×280×10mm

San-X has outdone themselves again! They've came up with a series of matching pouches of various sizes to suit your needs. You can use these to store your ipad, note books and your stationery. Isn't it nice to open your bag and see these colorful pouches? They make me want to go back to studying. 

The idea of matching pouches and sizes is similar to the matching lunch boxes

Dimensions: 220×280×10mm

The classic is always a favourite among the Rilakkuma lovers! This is the exact same design as the classic lunch boxes. We've ordered extra for these babies and we hope that they'll come real soon. We are going to keep one set for ourselves too! They are just wayyyy too cute and also functional. 

They will be sold as a set and not individually. More photos after we get these babies on our hands.

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2013

Rilakkuma x Tower Records Collaboration

"No Music No Life" was once again used in 2013 Rilakkuma x Tower Records 5th collaboration project. This was a ロックテイスト Black Rock theme series. Again, each of the character were given music instruments and the spotlight of this series was that both Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma got the green Mohawk! It also seemed that Korilakkuma is the star of the series as the vocalist!

The band had matching clothes and super cute instruments. Korilakkuma was playing the bass.

Look at how enjoyable they are when they are on stage!

Like the previous collaboration, San-X and Tower Records released towels and other useful merchandises.

The caravan mascots are slightly different from the usual suits. Rilakkuma was not wearing his rocker suit and was given a rocker cap instead.

Check out this video to look at Korilakkuma jamming it out!

We would really love to get the chance to visit Japan and take photos with these life size cuties!

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2012

Rilakkuma x Tower Records Collaboration

"No Music No Life" was the slogan for 2012 Rilakkuma x Tower Records 4th collaboration project. 英国風ロック British style Rock was the theme for the series. Each of the character were given music instruments but what's unique is that Kiiroitori was given a wig to wear to his performance!

We love the yellow summer concert towels! In fact, we love the towels manufactured by San-X. They are made of good quality and very durable. 


credits: San-X

Are you a musician or someone who plays an instrument? You can get these folders to keep your music scores.

Are you a Rilakkuma plush collector? These small sized plushies were released in this project. Seriously, the look of Kiiroitori tickles way too much! It's just too cute!


credits: San-X

Like all other Rilakkuma or San-X events, the bears go on a Caravan Tour and this is a video on Korilakkuma.

Look at how energetic Korilakkuma looks like! The way she plays and poses, makes everyone go "awwwwww".

Rilakkuma x JAXA 2014

Rilakkuma x JAXA Collaboration 

While San-X continues to surprise us with many of their collaboration projects in the month of July, San-X has also released news on a Space collaboration with JAXA. JAXA also known as Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (独立行政法人宇宙航空研究開発機構), is the national aerospace agency of Japan. 

And this special Astronaut Rilakkuma plushie is set to be released at the SPACE EXPO 2014: The Great Challenge of NASA/JAXA together with Rilakkuma Space themed Series. Limited quantities will be released so fastest fingers first! 

credits: San-X

Looking into the details, Rilakkuma is holding on to a rocket on his right hand and there is a Japan flag on his left sleeve. Judging from the suit, the blue suit seems to be detachable. Yay!! As this is a special release, the tag on Rilakkuma seems to be printed with JAXA logo. 

This plush is about 215 x 140 mm, which is about the size of a S plush. 

credits: San-X

There is also a JAXA logo printed on the back of the suit. The whole professional look really made Rilakkuma like a real training Astronaut! Comparing this special release to the Space themed series, this plushie is more formal looking and it made us want to keep one for ourselves! 

Although it is a bit sad that this release only consists of Rilakkuma, we would love to see Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori suit up as his space team mates as well. It will be so cool to see them all in the same suits! Perhaps, JAXA and San-X could also come up with Space Ice Cream or other food. 

We have also opened a pre-order for this plushis over at our webstore here. Pre-order will be closed on 17th July 2014.

Rilakkuma x Dr Yellow Collaboration 2014

San-X Rilakkuma meets Dr Yellow

あの黄色の新幹線に出会いました! 
Dr Yellow ドクターイエロー is the nickname of the test trains that are being used for testing Shinkansen train routes. These trains are painted as yellow with blue strip waistline. 

Class 923 Dr Yellow. Credits: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Yellow

Rilakkuma is dressed as the Class 923 series of the test trains and he look so handsome! We think that he looks like one of the train officer who is testing the train routes.

This really made us tickle. It looks like a halloween costume for Rilakkuma that he can use this year! Judging from the dimensions, it seems to be a M Plush size. We don't think that the suit is detachable though. 


Rilakkuma x Dr Yellow. Credits: San-X

Among the series, the mobile stand seems to be the cutest of them all! The stand can be a pencil/pen holder as well. 

This series will be released in Japan during July period and we are looking forward to see this in real life! We now opening a pre-order for this series and more details can be found here

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2014

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2014

This year, San-X and Tower Records came up with a new summer collaboration project: きらっきらのアイドル Kirakira Idol Project. Look at how glamourous they look below! 

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2014. credits: San-X

Both Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma are wearing roller shoes and only Kiiroitori is on a skate which made sense as his feet are too small to fit into shoes. (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖ Also, their get up kinda reminded us of the 70's singers outfit, which made the whole stage look retrolicious. 
Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2013. credits: San-X

In the 2013 collaboration, Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori were designed to be punk rock stars with the black and yellow rocker stage and Kiiroitori was given a "mohawk" hairdo. And Korilakkuma was the lead vocal singer, which was refreshing to see as Rilakkuma is usually the main character among them.  

Like last year, San-X gave Rilakkuma and his band mates (Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori) a big stage for their performance. Similarly, the stage is set to be the head of the bears and each of them have their own unique suits. It seems that Korilakkuma is once again the lead in the group and Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori are the support members.

Individual plushies are also available for purchase and they are slightly different from those on the stage. Which makes us wanna get them all!

Apart from the usual plushies, San-X also released hanging plush charms and other items that are super cute. Especially the pin badges are really really attractive! We are trying to get our hands on some of these to be pinned on our tees or caps. 

Rilakkuma x Tower Records 2014. credits: San-X

Who doesn't like life size Rilakkuma?? We know we do! These mascots are going to be on Relax Tour 2014 this whole month! Hehe, even the event is a "tour" to fit the theme. The tour schedule can be found here. If there is any one who is going to be visiting these lovely mascots, please send your photos to us to share!

This series will be released in Japan during July period and we are looking forward to see this in real life! We now opening a pre-order for this series and more details can be found here

San-X Rilakkuma x Tower Records Idol Caravan Event



Though Kiiroitori is not moving but he is super cute in that outfit! We want that Kii-chan!

And Rilakkuma totally swept the hearts of many fans at the events! You can hear them laughing and saying "kawaii" all the time! 

Rilakkuma x Tower Records Cafe 

Other than merchandise collaboration, San-X and Tower Records are working together for a Rilakkuma theme cafe event.

おいいしそう!!!


Since this is a cafe, coffee and food are the main focus and the team came up with really awesome plating for the rice! We think that it might be made using the body mould that San-X released last year. Now, we are regretting not keeping one for ourselves (′︿‵。) 



Have a relax day everyone!
