Finally I received a larger sized plush who is now a great companion while I watch TV.
I only purchase my Rilakkuma plushies from authorized dealers just in case they may not be authentic anywhere else that claims they are. Although I am able to tell if they are fake… It’s just better to play safe!
I get mine from Takashimaya, NBC stationery stores, Kinokuniya or Isetan. It appears that most or all of them are Japan based shops… Very safe obviously!
