Relax Bear Papercraft - Daruma Dolls

Relax Bear Papercraft Daruma Doll

Relax Bear's latest theme features the Daruma doll. Only Relax Bear (Rilakkuma) and his friend Korilakkuma are on this one, no Kiiroitori. Daruma dolls are Japanese wish dolls / good luck talismans that are modeled after the Buddhist monk, Bodhidharma (Father of Zen Buddhism). It is an armles, legless, and eyeless doll. The way it works, you paint the left eye black while wishing, then paint the other eye (right) when and if your wish comes true.

  1. I always look forward to the days that your blog informs me that there is another relax bear available.

    Thanks Ron!

  2. wow.. nice. They look so cute..

  3. it would have been much cooler if the designer had put some blank eyes on their foreheads, then we could use it as an actual daruma doll, oh well :)

  5. @craft
