The Care Bears are multi-colored bears, originally painted by Elena Kucharik. They first appeared on American Greetings cards back in 1981. They were adapted into plush teddy bears in 1983. They became stars on their own television shows, as well as in three feature films.
The Care Bears’ story continues in the sequel, Care-a-Lot, which reintroduces the four Care Bear cousins. Set in a magical land in the clouds, the characters teach children about caring and sharing. They also interact with children on Earth. Care Bears are often mischievous enemies.
The Care Bears were featured in many books, as well as their TV series. Sweet Dreams for Sally and the Care Bear Cousins, Sweet Dreams for Sally and The Witch Down the Street, The Trouble With Timothy, A Sister For Sam, and Sweet Dreams for Sally were some of the first publications. During the 1980s, the publishers Parker Brothers published over 45 million Care Bear books. The series was licensed to several publishers, including Modern Publishing and Scholastic Press.
The Care Bears are not only big and fluffy, but also come in a variety of colors and designs. Some Care Bears are extremely collectible and can fetch hundreds of dollars. Some even sell for $10,000 or more. Also, Care Bears that are in their original boxes and unharmed are more valuable. These adorable teddy bears are so expensive, you might be wondering.
