Rilakkuma is a lazy bear who loves to eat, sleep and lounge around. His name literally means "bear in a relaxed mood". He suddenly appeared out of nowhere and does everything at his own pace. Rilakkuma is always stress-free and loves to eat pancakes, omelettes, dumplings and puddings. He hangs out with his friends a lot, the little white bear Korilakkuma and the yellow chick Kiiroitori. Rilakkuma has a mysterious zipper on the back that reveals a light blue polka dot patterned material, but nobody knows what's inside of him.
