I grew up with the Care Bears, they were one of my most loved television shows. I suspect that many of you can say the same if you were a child of the 80s or early 90s. The Care Bears have gone through several iterations so a couple generations can say the same thing. Well the Care Bears have came back again over the last few years for a new generation to enjoy and with that Hasbro teamed up this year with American Greetings to debut a new line of Care Bear plush toys.
I had an American Greetings “Bedtime Bear” Care Bear growing up. He was one of my favourite stuffed animals and although he is safely packed away right now I still remember all the details from the rosy cheeked crescent moon on his badge, to his little pink tongue sticking out right down to the red heart on his backside.
Hasbro sent us a Wonderheart Bear to check out. Wonderheart Bear is the smallest and newest addition to Welcome to Care-a-Lot, the current Care Bear series. She is the youngest of the Care Bears and has a very curious personality.
Her belly badge (or Tummy Symbol as I grew up calling it,) is a heart and is likely the easiest of the bears for young fans to relate to since she is the youngest of the bears.
The Wonderheart Bear Plush is just adorable, she is smaller in size than the other plush Bears in the line, however all the details I can remember from my own childhood Care Bear are all still present. She is vibrantly coloured, soft and cuddly with her heart belly badge and heart foot pads. She even has the red heart on her backside/hip just like my vintage bear.
Of course there is a full line of Care Bears Classic Plush Bears available from Hasbro, you can check them all out on the Hasbro website!
The details have not been lost over the last few decades making this line of Classic Plush Bears a must have for little fans who will be sure to love their Care Bear Plush as much as those in my generation loved ours! Care Bears are always ready to spread cheer, kindness , friendship , and fun!
Recommended for ages 3 years and up, you can purchase Care Bears Classic Plush from Toys “R” Us, Chapters and other retailers for only $24.99 each!
