Do these beautifully bright bears need any introduction? Odds are, if you grew up in the 1980's, you know of and probably love these friendly faces. The Care Bears are a group of multi-coloured bears, each with a different belly badge that reflects their personality and talents. Can you believe it, this year they turn 35?
The original 1980's Care Bears logo
Having been a long time stockist of these magical bears (and their cousins too!) we decided to celebrate their birthday with brand new lines and special promotions, details of which can be found in our latest newsletter (if you've not already signed up, you really should!).
The original artwork was painted by artist Elena Kucharik for American Greetings in 1981 to be used on greeting cards and later spreading love throughout the iconic TV programmes and films. Over the years they've had many revivals and added new characters, and today are just as popular as they were when they first launched.
The current Harmony Bear, Funshine Bear, Share Bear, Tenderheart Bear and Cheer Bear
At 5LD, we've been stocking these firm favourites for almost two years now, born from my fond childhood memories of the gang. You can find all our Care Bear goodies available now by clicking the image below.
