I’ve been a space nerd for even longer than I’ve been a kawaii fan so I LOVE the new space-themed Rilakkuma products! They seem to be a tie in with the Lawson corner shops in Japan, but luckily you can still find a lot of it online. The plushes are all amazing, but there are also some cute figurines, cool backpacks and loads of stationery. eBay is your best bet at the moment, but hopefully some will turn up on San-X partner sites in the US and Europe too. I’ll take one of everything!
