a Rilakkuma display in Hong Kong

This is something I forgot to blog about after my Hong Kong trip and I know a lot of people are fans of this bear. Whilst I was there, Rilakkuma celebrated its ten year anniversary with a display at a shopping centre in Tsim Sha Tsui called The One Plaza.

The display was impossibly cute and I tried to take pictures of every single bit of it.

My favourite is Korilakkuma and to see him so big here was a bit of a surprise:

There was another bit of the display where people could take pictures but I won't wreck your day by showing you one of me in the middle of it all!

This whole celebratory display was clearly quite popular as there was a queue with security guards ensuring that the area was never over-crowded. Rilakkuma is quite unique in that it appeals to people of all ages and is a popular cuddly toy in Hong Kong. Merchandise can be found in many stores and I can't think of anything in the Western world that is comparable to this bear. The best part was that I wasn't even the oldest person taking pictures of this display!
