Family Outing to Celebrate 35 Years of Caring!

Did you know the Care Bears turn 35 this year? We're excited to share fun facts about these lovable & huggable characters! #35YearsofCaring

Who would've thought that a series of toys and American Greetings cards with cute, colorful and thoughtful bears would lead to one of the world's most popular children's properties!?
The Care Bears highlight the importance of caring and sharing and 2017 marks the 35th anniversary of this endearing group of bears.
On Sunday we spent the day at Giggles N' Hugs celebrating with a play date and screening of Care Bears & Cousins, a Netflix Original Series launched in Fall 2015. Giggles N Hugs was converted into a Care-A-Lot and Benny and Toby were among several children who got to participate in really fun Care Bears-themed activities.

Michelle Steinberg of dOMAIN Integrated, the firm that coordinated Sunday's Care Bears Anniversary event said The Care Bears allow families to integrate because they're unisex and allow for parents and children to express themselves. "For Care Bears it's a story of emotions," she said. "We're celebrating 35 years [of caring] and it's important to care. First and foremost you have to care about yourself, respect yourself...and then care for others."

As a little girl, Funshine Bear was my favorite but these days as a boy mom, it's all about Grumpy Bear!

Care Bears fans can enjoy a robust portfolio of thousands of Care Bears licensed products at retailers globally
 Additional Care Bear Facts:
*Each Care Bear comes in a different color and features a special insignia on its belly representing its personality.
*The Care Bears are no strangers to television screens. They first appeared in their own television specials in 1983 and 1984 and then made the leap to the big screen between 1985-1987 with "The Care Bears Movie" trilogy.
*There were 10 original Care Bears including: Bedtime Bear, Birthday Bear, Cheer Bear, Friend Bear, Funshine Bear, Good Luck Bear, Grumpy Bear, Love-A-Lot Bear, Tenderheart Bear and Wish Bear.

Did you know there's a new Care Bears Movie in the works?
Sounds like we'll be enjoying these adorable characters for many years to come...
Happy 35th Birthday, Care Bears!
