Tokyo Gift Show Impressions

A couple of weeks ago part of our team flew to Japan and visited the Tokyo International Gift Show. You might have seen one or two pictures on Facebook already, but now we selected a few more to show you. Taking pictures on the Gift Show is really not easy, because you’re only allowed to take pictures of shows, but not of the exhibition booths. If you try to, security is there right away. Still we managed to photograph secretly to get some general impressions. One of the highlights was of course to see Rilakkuma and friends. They were dressed in Hawaii outfits, as this is the theme of the newest Rilakkuma collection that we will have in our shop soon.

Rilakkuma at Hong Kong Marathon

On Sunday 72,000 people participated in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013 through Hong Kong. One of them was Rilakkuma! To be honest, we did not expect to see him there as he is such a lazy bear and you have to be in very good shape to run a marathon. But in the end we were right, the lazy bear rather posed for pictures and TV cameras than focusing on the marathon. He is a lazy bear after all!

There were lots of people in funny costumes participating in the marathon, but of course Rilakkuma was the most popular character in the spotlight.

New Hello Kitty and Rilakkuma Re-Ments announced

These two new sets get you in the mood for spring. The Japanese miniature manufacturer Re-Ment announced two new sets to be released soon.

The super kawaii Hello Kitty cherry blossom Re-Ment consists of traditional Japanese candies, bentos and dishes that are popular for taking to the Hanami picnics. Everything is in the shape of Hello Kitty and therefore looks super adorable. It will be available in Japan on March 3rd.

The Aloha Rilakkuma Re-Ment is from the new Hawaii collection and will be released on the 25th of February. The eight different sets contain a lot of Rilakkuma foods like waffles, burgers or shaved ice, but also typical Hawaii symbols like flowers or a ukulele.

We will have both sets in our shop and hope we receive them soon.

Happy Rose Monday with Rilakkuma

It’s Carnival Time, especially in Germany. On today’s Rose Monday large parts of the country go absolutely crazy. In some major cities people celebrate on the streets, sing and dance. There are also lots of parades and people dress up in colourful and creative costumes. Back in the day people would dress in scary costumes to scare away winter, but nowadays it’s more about looking good and being creative.

As one of our favourite characters – the lazy Rilakkuma bear – loves to dress up too, we chose a couple of pictures of him wearing classic costumes in German carnival:

1. Bee costume – people love to dress up as bees, because it’s super easy to do. Just dress in yellow and black stripes and you’re done. Of course it looks better if you put more effort into it

2. Sailor costume – A hat, a shirt and a scarf, that’s all you need. Every year you’ll see lots of people in carnival dressed as sailors.

3. Rabbit costume – All animal costumes are super popular in carnival: frogs, cats, elephants, monkeys and so on. We just happened to find Rilakkuma in a rabbit costume.

Have some great carnival days.
