RILAKKUMA NEWS: LEAKED BREAD SERIES, KORILAKKUMA'S SWEET DREAM, & MORE

In today's blogpost, I'm going to share ALL this month's Rilakkuma news: upcoming releases, new series, and even some leaked pictures of new series coming in March and May.

This post will only be about the November news, so for updates on releases last month, please see October's post. (The November video will include some pictures of the releases however : ) )

First, the Net Shop will have some items available until December 8. These are flower arrangements so my guess is that they can't be shipped overseas! However, there are some really cute Christmas gift bags available in December.

There is a new collaboration of bags with Harris Tweed. They look really nice and are for either men or women. However, the prices are around $100 for many of the bags. (Available at the Net Shop) I've seen them on ebay, but the prices were about double.

There is also a new set of stickers available on LINE Camera with Koguma! I currently have all the Rilakkuma sets. They are great for editing photos. I like the app itself too. The price is $1.99 USD.


Korilakkuma was named a prefecture mascot! The prefecture is known for their strawberries, so Ichigo Kori was a great fit for the job.

There is a new lunch market series of bento accessories for Rilakkuma and Sumikko Gurashi. Very cute! I love the quality of Rilakkuma bento goods, so I think I'll be picking some of these up in Japan.

Perhaps the biggest news is the Korilakkuma solo series releasing in December! It is called Korilakkuma's Sweet Dream. All the items are light pink and super adorable. There is a video for this series, as well as a downloadable desktop background.

The series will have a special cafe opening from December to January. I really would like to go, but it seems you need reservations?? If anyone has went to a San-X cafe in Japan let me know. I've been to the Pom Pom Purin Cafe but there was not even a line!

The menu is adorable! Look at this drink with cotton candy!


Full goods info in original Japanese here. Some items can be purchased at Mira Plush.


There will be special caravan events for the series and you can purchase this special unicorn plush if you attend.



There is also a limited version for this series available at certain Rilakkuma stores.


Rilakkuma also collaborated to make a set of bean bag chairs. They are super big!

There is a new set of Rila-closet goods that comes in a big suitcase. It's a cute set that can be purchased from the Net Shop for about $112.
The chicken series is a special for the Chinese New Year. They look similar to previous tamago series that I already have, so I don't think I'll be getting these.  They will be released in December.

There are some new Rilakkuma jewelry items! One is from J-Plus, which is where Bo bought my Rilakkuma ring from. You can buy directly from them on Rakuten with no shopping service.

Then, there is also a new set of jewelry available at Rilakkuma stores that will be less pricey than the J-Plus ones.

One of my favorite items from this month is the Suteki na Okusan magazine! I just ordered it from CD Japan. This month there will be a special Rilakkuma shopping bag that you can put right in your shopping basket.

Now for the leaks!

In March, there will be a new Rilakkuma Bread series, featuring all kinds of Japanese breads. Rilakkuma is melon pan, Kori is strawberry melon pan, and Kiiro is shokupan (white slice of bread). My favorite is Rilakkuma as a whole loaf of bread! Please visit the Hong Kong based, Rilakkuma seller here for the source of the photos and as a place you can purchase them. I have bought from them in person and I think they may do overseas orders.

Below are all the items for the series. : )


In May, we will be seeing an all new series with Koguma, called "Korilakkuma meets Chaiiroikoguma". I love the colors and floral design. It is perfect for spring time.


What do you think of the new series?
Please let me know of anywhere these are available so I can update this post. : )

♡ Rilakkuma News: SAKURA SERIES, Tsum tsums? & Christmas Sets ♡ (October 2016)

I decided to start doing some new videos about the latest releases from Rilakkuma.
In this series, I'll also be making blog posts so you can see full sized pictures of the releases I mention.

First, lets talk about some of the new leaked releases coming in January. I got the product photos from a fantastic shop in Hong Kong.
So please do visit 
their Instagram for the photos.

Here is my latest video about this blog post:


It's the Rilakkuma Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Theme! 

Wow, what an exciting idea for the new year.



  I really like the kitchenware from this set! The items will be released in January, 2017. No preorder yet on MiraPlush, but the Hong Kong based Rilakkuma JMarket has them for preorder. Here's their Instagram. I have only shopped from them in person in Hong Kong, so I'm not sure how they are with overseas orders.

Next, let's take a look at the releases this month.

There will be a 2017 special series for Kiiroitori! It's the year of the chicken, so Kiiro will bring you good luck. On November 10, they will be released for sale on the San-X net shop.
Full info at San-X here..

There's also a ton of new Koguma goods coming out! Yay! (Releasing in November)

There are also some bathroom goods including a toothbrush holder, towel hook, sponge and soap dish! They also have face towels too!




There's a new release of the Mochi-petan series! Tons of different San-X characters too!


I absolutely LOVE this Lawson set (available in September), but I can't find it anywhere : (

Any help finding this one??

 There are some really cute anniversary sets too!! They are offered for pre order on Mira Plush!

 Finally, the 2016 Rilakkuma Christmas series!!! Yay! They took so long to release info about these. I have had the Christmas play set preordered since September! I think I will be buying these directly from the San-X Net Shop. Mira Plush now has them!




 Yay, 2016 Calendars! I got one of these, too!
All calendar selections can be found here! I've seen them for purchase on the San-X net shop, ebay, and Amazon.jp.




I also got the yearly bill book! You can keep track of all your expenses! I bought mine on Amazon.jp using Buyee, but I've also gotten it at CD Japan in previous years.

I also love these little mascot stamps! I'm not sure where we will be able to find them though...Tiny things are often so hard to track down.


That's all! : ) Do you like this new Rilakkuma News idea?
