We haven’t caught up with all the San-X characters for a while so here’s a look at all the new themes for Rilakkuma, Sumikko Gurashi, Jinbe San and more. Click the first link of each for free wallpapers too.
The new Sumikko Gurashi theme might be the cutest yet – or maybe I’m just missing the outdoors? They’re off to Sumikko Camp this time and Penguin? has made a new otter friend! The products are adorable with little camping play sets, desk accessories and otter outfits.
Chairokoguma / Kogumachan is getting his first solo collection and the little bear cub wants to grow up! He’s drinking a lot of milk and practicing his growling. There’s a lot of cute stationery and little milk glasses too.
If you ever wondered what the Corocorocoronya bakery cats would look like as dogs, well now you know! They’ve met a Shiba Inu dog called Komame from the rice shop and their shared love of snacks seems to have helped them make friends. There’s lots of cute plushies to buy too.
Where To Buy
Some of these products are available now and others will be released throughout May. You can order directly from the San-X Net Shop but you’ll need a forwarding service (read our guide for Tenso) to ship outside Japan. VeryGoods (Japan) also stock many of the products and ship worldwide.
