Rilakkuma Plushies? No, They're Workout Weights
Stay active with this kawaii fitness equipment.
Japanese sporting equipment company Mizuno has released workout weights inspired by Rilakkuma and his friends. At first glance, anyone would think these were ordinary soft plushies, but they actually weigh around one pound each.
As part of Mizuno’s Ballretch collection, the fitness item is available in two sets. The first consists of Rilakkuma- and Kiiroitori-themed weights, while the second features Korilakkuma and Chairoikoguma. For those who have never come across a Ballretch, it essentially works like a dumbbell – watch the video below for a full tutorial on how to use it.
Take a closer look at the different designs above. Mizuno’s new Ballretch sets are priced at ¥3,960 JPY (approximately $38 USD) each, which you can now shop online.
