“Sharing Together, Caring Together, Better Together” – the Care Bears and Togetherness Bear – all about making the world a better place
I was a Care Bears collector and fan long before it was a thing. I guess it was a thing when I was 8 but I mean a thing like it is now in 2021, where shirts are being worn by my own kids, and my youngest is asking for Care Bears on her Christmas list.
I was an OG fan of the Care Bears. I watched them on Saturday morning TV, I was excited over the introduction of Care Bears Cousins (I asked Santa for one and he delivered!), and then as an adult got into collecting the retro Care Bears from the 80’s and the figurines – I still have them all and even scored a rare UK-release only Care Bear that sold for a ridiculous price on eBay many years ago!
This year the Care Bears will continue to share and care with the introduction of a NEW Care Bears Friend – Togetherness Bear. There’s only ONE way to describe Togetherness Bear – she’s “one of a kind!” Unique, colorful, and all about bringing everyone together.
No two Togetherness Bears will look the same, just like no two people are the same! <—- Imagine how a rare find like that would have been on eBay with a retro bear years ago, oh my gosh! But, the purpose of this bear, of course, is to share how it’s awesome to be different because we all are! With her motto of “Love All,” Togetherness Bear reminds us that sharing your heart with others is the greatest gift to give and is the best way to bring us all closer together.
I love this, and love that Care Bears are still a thing going into 2022! Also worth mentioning, these bears are bigger than the originals parents are used to from our generation – but they’re even more soft and cuddly!
