Sumikko Gurashi Shop in Lalaport Fujimi

Lalaport Fujimi Special Collaboration

San-X opened a new store at Lalaport Fujimi which marks the 10th Rilakkuma store. This store is different from the previous Rilakkuma Store as it includes the Sumikko Gurashi Shop or Sumikko Gurashi "Corner". This special store set up is now called Rilakkuma Store Plus.

To celebrate the opening of the new store, San-X released a set of mini plushies and a scene set. 



These mini plushies members includes Shirokuma. Penguin, Tonkatsu, Neko, Zassou and Tapioca. It seems that they come with tiny hoops on top of their head, one is able to hook them onto their straps easily. 

The idea of Tonkatsu selling Senbei is totally cute! (yes, we are in love with Tonkatsu :p )



This scene set is in a train cabin with Mount Fuji in the background. Shirokuma is using Furoshiki as a scarf to keep warm (love the irony here!), Penguin is reading and Hokori is just hanging around. Notice that they are all sitting in different corners which really fits their character to a T! 

Of course you might want to fill the space between them by placing some of your existing mini plushies from Sumikko Gurashi to make them less lonely. 

We are unsure of their dimensions at the moment, but if you are interested to make a purchase for them, click on the links below!

Shippo-chan is then always seen together with Tonkatsu-kun as a pair. I think that they've made a really good pair as discarded food on the same plate! Side note, I am totally in love with this characters!!

Sumikko Gurashi August 2014 Release

credits: San-X

New goods under Sumikko Gurashi series! San-X made more lifestyle items that are meant for everyday use and make Sumikko Gurashi your companion 365 days. 

credits: San-X

The magazine holder is so cute! Both sides of the magazine holder have two different characters. 

credits: San-X

The sofa tissue box is one of the bestseller. You can add the mini plushies onto the sofa and form your favourite team of Sumikko Gurashi. If only there are the stacking laying plushies of the Sumikko Gurashi gang, we will get them all but since there isn't any, the organizing trays to stack them up! 

credits: San-X

 Right now, only Penguin and Neko's bed room slippers are available. Instead of making it a pair of flat slippers, the characters are pop up and it makes the slippers look super comfy. I just wish that they make bigger slippers so that more people can wear it.

They look so comfy in all sorts of corners! Especially the one in the fridge. I love how the tapiocas are pretending to be ice cream scoops! And Shiro kuma feeling cold in the fridge while he is a polar bear >.<

Tonkatsu is one of my favourite character from the team! Can't imagine that he is actually made of 99% fats! It is said that his nose is the 1% meat left on him.
