Care Bears

Care Bears were a set of cute characters that were once used by American Greetings on greeting cards in 1981, but in 1983, the brightly colored characters were turned into the plush bears that are so common, even today.

Each bear has a different insignia on its belly that represents the bear's duty and personality. The insignia make the bears more personal and marketable to children of different personalities.

Once the Care Bears craze was in its height, other types of "Care Bear Cousins" were created. You'll find the lion, monkey, dog, penguin, rabbit, and other characters that have the same basic style and belly insignia as the original Care Bears.

In 2002, the plush Care Bears were expanded to other toys, such as aerobic bears, glow in the dark bears, and bears that had light-up bellies. Not to mention all the new and old Care Bears movies, Care Bears games, video games, books, and Care Bears home d├ęcor, that were being released.

Then in 2007, Care Bears were relaunched for its 25th anniversary.
