Rilakkuma hotel room in Hawaii

In 2013 San-X will release the new Rilakkuma Hawaii collection and they will offer a super cute add-on. When San-X visited us the last time in our office in Hong Kong, they told us that two hotels in Hawaii will offer special Rilakkuma rooms once the collection is released. And they even showed us pictures already!

So you’re getting a super exclusive preview on how the rooms will look like. From what we can see, it looks like there will mainly be tons of plush toys in every room, but it looks super cozy and inviting. You have to book the rooms in advance, because it takes some time to prepare to make them look like this. We don’t have any information yet when you will be able to book and what they really contain, but it’s a very good collaboration to promote the new collection.

Would you want to stay there?

Super cute Rilakkuma as Chicken plushie at Japan’s Lawson stores

When we go to Japan we always bring back lots of cute items, but also magazines and commercials. From our last trip we also brought an advertisement from the Japanese store Lawson with super cool Rilakkuma plushies. Rilakkuma is dressed up as a chicken, it seems to be some kind of special edition from the newest Rilakkuma egg collection. It looks very adorable, esspecially the white chicken wings on Rilakkuma’s arms. Too bad you can only buy this stuff in Japan!

We saw the Hello Kitty Plane

When part of our team went to a trade show in Korea last week, they actually spotted the super kawaii Hello Kitty plane after having landed in Seoul. We already wrote a blog post about that plane some time ago, but now we could see it with our own eyes. The airline Eva Air is operating the Hello Kitty plane series in 3 destinations in Asia, obviously Korea belongs to one of the routes. We were very excited to see it, even though you could only watch it from far away.

Mamegoma is a small, white and palm-sized seal. It is very friendly and always laughing and smiling. Mamegoma has a lot of seal friends around and is almost never alone. They all look a lot alike, but differentiate in colour and pattern. There are more than 30 different ones, for example the black Kurogoma, the blue Soragoma or the striped Shimagoma.

The Mamegoma seals love to eat “Edamame” (green soybean), but are also very crazy about donuts. They need a lot of energy, because they are constantly playing and carvorting.

Meet the San-X characters: Rilakkuma and friends

As you might know we are an official San-X retailer and currently stock nearly 1,000 products from the Japanese company. But even though most of our customers know the cute Rilakkuma bear, the Sentimental Circus animals or the little Mamomega seals, you might not know the story behind them. This is why we start a new mini series on our blog today. In the next weeks we will introduce 4 of the most popular San-X characters more detailed, tell you about their characteristics, relationships and friends.

And today we start with probably the most well-known member of the San-X family: Rilakkuma bear and friends.

Rilakkuma

When translated literally from Japanese into English, Rilakkuma means ‘Relax bear’ or ‘bear in a relaxed mood’. So the name already tells you the most important thing about the little bear. He loves to lay around, is never in distress or a hassle and just enjoys his life. This is why you always see him lounging on pillows, meadows, chairs, relaxing in cafes and so on. Rilakkuma totally loves food, so you’ll see him eat a lot. Some of his favourite dishes are pancakes, omelettes, dumplings and puddings. He also enjoys listening to music or watching TV.

Rilakkuma has a mysterious zipper on his back and you see a white cloth with blue polka dots when you open it, still nobody knows what’s inside Rilakkuma. Rilakkuma is most of the time surrounded by his friends Korilakkuma bear and Kiiroitori chick.

Korilakkuma

The little white bear Korilakkuma is a friend of Rilakkuma, but sometimes also a little troublemaker. He is a cheeky little fella who likes to make a joke and sometimes also enjoys annoying his friends. He emulates Rilakkuma a lot and also likes musik and sleeping. He is quite adorable when asleep.

Kiiroitori

The little yellow bird Kiiroitori is a tidy chick that likes to clean. As Rilakkuma is lazy and messy, Kiiroitori often scolds him, but ends up cleaning up his mess after him. Korilakkuma is also often mischievous towards the little bird, so Kiiroitori sometimes has a hard time with the two bears. Still they are best friends and love each other. Kiiroitori likes to save, he saves little treats or treasures that he gets or finds.
