Rilakkuma and Tarepanda

How did we do before Wikipedia ?? It is amazing how information about anything you can think of can be found there. Anyway as I am getting more and more additced to Japanese cuteness, I found out that cute Japanese teddy bears that are often seen have brand names. Rilakkuma is a combination of relax and and the Japanese word for bear and the character is produced by the San-X company. Tarepanda another San-X character on the other hand means lazy or droopy panda, its a character who gets around by rolling, since it is so lazy, how cute ;-)...

I found these cute Rilakummas at:

Some cute Tarepandas...
