New Sumikko Gurashi & Korilakkuma Themes

Posted on


San-X are always coming up with the cutest new themes and the latest ones are no different with super cute new products featuring Sumikko Gurashi & Korilakkuma.

Sumikko Gurashi PenPen Ice Cream plush

The friendship between Penguin? and Penguin (real) is one of the sweetest parts of the Sumikko Gurashi story. It got off to such a bad start! Apparently, they’re such good friends now that they’ve started an ice cream van called PenPen Ice Cream. I’ve been dying over this collection since it was announced – the ice cream van even has a penguin face on the front.

Me and Nic have already teamed up to place an order for our favourite plushies and will share some photos when they arrive. There’s so much cute stuff in the San-X shop though – I was quite tempted by this beach bag, even though we don’t get beach weather in Scotland. The bottom section is completely separate so you can use it to store your sandy shoes or wet swimming costume.

Korilakkuma Vacation kawaii plush

Korilakkuma is often just Rilakkuma’s sidekick but now they’ve got their own collection – Korilakkuma Vacation. Apparently their dreams involve swimming in an ocean of fruit soda with an adorable penguin. Fair enough! It’s a very sweet theme with lots of pastel colours, shells and fluffiness. It’s not that big a collection but the San-X shop has plush, pouches, mirrors, pillow and more.

If you can make it to a Rilakkuma Store in Japan, look out for these amazing exclusive plush – they’re all set for the beach.

You can order most of these products from the San-X shop using a forwarding service like Tenso, but some items are already sold out, even though they only went online yesterday!

    I thought the first summiko gurashi ice cream plush was too much cute for me, then I scrolled down and the new korilakkuma theme merch is waaaayy too much for me to handle!
