TownleyGirl is celebrating #ColorsOfCaring with Care Bears! In honor of our upcoming cosmetics collaboration with the cuddly characters, we bring you 7 things you probably didn’t know about Care Bears.
1. They were created over 30 years ago! The Care Bears first hit screens in September 1985.
2. There were originally ten bears. Their names were: Bedtime Bear, Birthday Bear, Cheer Bear, Friend Bear, Sunshine Bear, Good Luck Bear, Grumpy Bear, Love-a-lot Bear, Tender Heart Bear and Wish Bear.
3. Don't forget about the family! We didn't meet the cousins until they appeared on the Care Bears movie. The ‘cousins’ included Brave Heart Lion and Playful Heart Monkey and while they weren’t bears, they stole the hearts of millions.
4. The Care Bears movie inspired two tie-in books. ‘Meet The Care Bear Cousins’ and ‘Keep On Caring.' The books were released a few months after the movie and served as background information to the movie.
5. There were REAL comic books. Marvel Comics released a 20 issue comic series through Star Comics from 1985 to 1989.
6. If you are a child of the 1980's you probably owned one. ;)
