Koguma-chan Limited Edition Plush [New Rilakkuma Character Series]

Koguma-chan is the new Rilakkuma character being released in March. For more info about Koguma's story, see my previous post, or links at the bottom of this post. (Shop here for Koguma goods)

Let's take a look at the three new limited edition plushies of Koguma!

 This first one features Rilakkuma fishing with Koguma at his side. It even has a little pond and fish at the end of the pole! This is quite unique because Rilakkuma plush don't normally have a base like this.

I love this one so much..Koguma peeking out of the tree! It's as if they are playing hide-and-seek. I think I just have to buy this one!

And finally, a really cute one with Koguma and Kiiro riding on top. It's the cheapest of the series (1700 yen). I love it!

So I preordered the main series already...but it looks like I may need to buy some more. I just love it so much. How about you guys?

I have seen these on TaoBao, and now they are for preorder on MiraPlush! Have you seen them for sale anywhere else? I'll update here if I find a reliable website.

Koguma Stationery Goods & Plush! (New Rilakkuma Character) March 2016

Yay! San-X finally released the goods that will be released for Koguma-chan! The items in this series should be in stores in Japan on March 7, 2016. If you are overseas, you can preorder from MiraPlush or a variety of sellers on TaoBao. I'll be watching to see where we can buy some of the other goods too! (Update: there are a variety of goods available on Otaku Mode: here)

If you'd like more information about the release, visit my previous post, translated story of Koguma-chan and my youtube video.

So let's take a look at all the new items!

First are some really adorable notebooks, lettersets and a clear folder. Hopefully, we'll be seeing some of this stationery at my favorite place to buy--Kawaii Shop Japan. Though a bit pricier, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of these items at Kawaii Gifts, which is based in Pittsburgh.

So happy to see pouches and bags for this series. I'm not sure I love the big bag very much, but I definitely like the smaller too. The little one has English that says "Did you become friends in the honey forest?" and Koguma and Korilakkuma say "Gaoo.." Which is kind of like a cute growl bear sound. They are so cute!

And here are the main plush! I have preordered THE WHOLE SET! This means I reeeally like them. This may be one of my new favorite series. I just feel so attached to the new Koguma.

San-X also has three more plush items: a keychain Koguma, a regular (s size) Koguma plush, and a larger Koguma-chan. I decided on the keychain and the S size plush. I think the s size will fit in better with the above main series. And check out the details! The little bear pads on his feet and honey stuck on his rear! Adorable!! What will you be buying??
