Everything old is new again, and the Care Bears are no exception. Yes, I remember them from my childhood—back in the Paleolithic Era, natch—and recently they’ve made a huge comeback. And why not? What’s not to like about colorful, cuddly teddy bears bringing a message and sharing and caring with friends? Nothing, that’s what. All of these “retro” toy lines coming back have staying power because kids love ‘em, and as a parent, it’s hard to argue with a cartoon promoting such great messages.
Did you happen to catch the Care Bears in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year? Yep, they were there! They did a bit of ice skating while Carly Simon sang. Not too shabby.
Psssst… there’s still time to order for Christmas! Visit the Ty’s Toy Box Care Bears Store for all of those hard-to-find Care Bears items you can’t get anywhere else. May I suggest the Bear Buddies DVD? It’s got eight never-before-seen episodes from the Adventures in Care-a-Lot Saturday morning show, and is a must-have for any Care Bears fan. And—of course—as you face down the days of holiday vacation, you may find the Official Care Bears Site has a few things to keep your little one busy. Just an idea.
‘Tis the season for all things Care Bears, and for all good things. Happy holidays from all of us here at Ty’s Toy Box!
