The Care Bears are making a comeback…to your t.v.

It’s those lovable, cuddly bears, making a comeback as your favorite animated T.V. show! Many popular cartoons from the 1980s have already made a huge comeback-Thundercats, the Smurfs, and Transformers, to name a few. Similarly, remakes of popular comic strips have been marvelously popular today, including the remaking of Captain America, Thor, and the Avengers into movies.

These cuddly characters first started out as an American Greeting card in 1981.  The Care Bears, like many other characters, are celebrating their 30th year anniversary! American Greetings plans to re-launch the newly animated TV Series much like they re-launched the Strawberry Shortcake series. They first launch the cartoon series. Then, if the audience likes the cartoons, they produce a line of plush toys the following year. To me, this seems like a brilliant idea. Why waste money on producing toys when no one likes the show to begin with?  This concept really seems to be working well for American Greetings, as the Strawberry Shortcake series are really solid and in no danger of disappearing anytime soon.

American Greetings is looking to target girls from ages 2-7 with the new Care Bears launch. They are also hoping to help parents reconnect with a brand that they may have themselves grown up with (I know I’m one of them) :)

Regardless, the Care Bears still exude great message of caring and sharing with one another. This could be one of the secrets behind their success, and why they are still hugely popular even after 30 years. Check out out Care Bears kids party supplies today.

Caring with the Care Bears

If you are thinking of a fun cuddly friend to curl up with for the holidays, look no further! The Care Bears are timeless furry friends that will never leave you alone.  The care bears were created in 1981 as part of American Greetings for use in their greeting cards, and are still going strong today.

Take for instance Grumpy Bear. Grumpy Bear is often always complaining about something and grumbling nonsense words to himself. However, beneath his rough exterior we suspect a genuinely caring bear with a kind heart.

Funshine Bear has a bright yellow sun for his belly badge and likes to bring the sunshine wherever he goes. He is the opposite of Grumpy Bear and treats everyone like a good friend.  He likes fun, games, and joking.

Then there’s Share Bear, who is purple and has curly hair.  She freely passes out hugs and carries around a bag of lollipops to-you guessed it-SHARE them!

Cheer Bear’s belly badge speaks for itself. With her rainbow belly badge and personality you can always count on her to give you a hug or cheer you up whenever you need it most.

Last but not least, Oopsy Bear is very clumsy and often says, “Oopsie!” when he runs into things, but his friends don’t hold that against him. He is unique in that he can draw what he happens to be feeling on his belly.

Another unique gift opportunity is the Care Bears Tenderheart Bear Canvas Wall Art. This is an unframed square design that measures 16″ x 16″.  You may also personalize this gift, up to 9 characters. Your little one will feel special with their name decorating this Wall Art design.  You will also find countless Care Bear knick knacks such as notes and party favors.  Don’t wait until it’s too late to order these for the holidays.  As Cheer Bear herself suggested, “We don’t need to huff and puff, let’s get it done.”
