Care Bears Gifts
Everyone needs a little bit of good cheer in their life. That’s probably why you’re looking at a place like FUN! Well, that’s where the combination of adorably cuddly bears with superhero powers combine with the perfect gifts for kids and adults alike. The Care Bears might have started out as a group of colorful characters on greeting cards. But they quickly evolved into using their powers to combat the forces of doom, gloom, and darkness. Of course, they’re not doing battle with swords and armor. They’ve got rainbow-powered gumption and the mojo to spread some cheer inscribed right on their bellies!
Let us take you straight to Care-a-Lot and introduce you to some of the best Care Bears gifts. You’ll bring some of your favorite characters from the 80s and beyond to life in no time. We have colorful home décor that will make it look like you and yours are up on Cloud Nine thanks to the assistance of the Care Bears and the Care Cousins. Whether you want to dive into the cartoon series or movies, or get a cuddly family photo, you’ll find the perfect Care Bear themed items. And rest assured, they’ll bring a smile as vivid as Rainbow Brite‘s to your face. Take a look! (It won’t even require a full Care Bear stare.)
Care Bears Plush Toys
We’ve all had that nasty nightmare that makes it tough to take a nap at night. Fortunately, the world created the most powerful protector out there: the teddy bear. We’ve been cuddling up to our nightstand knights for years! Sure, they might not look like the typical knight in shining armor, but they are great at chasing away the things that go bump in the night. It is no wonder that a Care Bear makes the best teddy bear companion out there. Bring home some of our plush Care Bear toys and you’re sure to have delightful dreams from here on out.
Giant Stuffed Care Bears
Teddy bears come in all shapes and sizes and often wear a variety of cute outfits. But there’s nothing quite like having a giant stuffed bear. Something you and your kids can really put your arms around. They can make for the perfect pillow when it is time to snuggle into bed or be a nighttime warden in a chair and be seen by all the boogie monsters. Take a look at some of our giant stuffed Care Bears to decorate your bear den. In fact, collect them all!
Care Bear Plush
Our kiddos deserve all of the comforts they can possibly get while they’re growing up. And the Care Bears are the ones who care the most about little ones. It only follows that we would carry some of the best baby toys and all with a cute Care Bears theme. From musical soothers to help your little one nod off to bed to the plushiest bedtime blankets, our Care Bears baby toys will have everyone wearing smiles.

Care Bear Cousins Costumes
Alright, so maybe bears aren’t your thing. That might seem nearly impossible…but some folks like other critters way more.

Well, for that, we’d like to introduce you to the denizens of the Forest of Friendship! Team up with the Care Bears with these Care Cousins costumes and let out the Cousin’s Call. (It makes the Care Bear Stare even more powerful, after all.)

That’s why we have a bunch of Care Bears outfits to wear when you’re out on the town. Bring a bit of Care Bear flair to your accessorizing, too, and you might find that you have a little extra skip in your step! From hats and shoes to bags and more, we have Care Bears clothing and gear that we know you’ll love.
Care Bear Backpacks
The Care Bears always need to have a few extra tricks up their sleeves. Well, they would if they wore shorts or jackets, anyway. Their fuzzy fur doesn’t really work with regular fashion statements. Fortunately, Grumpy came up with the perfect invention to help them tote their things. It’s the Care Bear Backpack! Keep your things close and show off your favorite Care Bear face at the same time. It’s genius-level tech direct from Care-a-Lot!
Care Bear Clothes
You know the feeling when you strike a power pose while wearing some of your favorite clothes? You can practically feel the energy just beaming off you and you just know that the camera loves every moment. Well, that’s not exactly like the power of the Care Bear Stare, but it’s pretty darn close. Unless, of course, you’re wearing our Care Bears clothing! Suddenly your clothes are truly beaming those bright colors for real!
Care Bear Sweaters

Be the cutest Scrooge there ever was with a Grumpy sweater and bring smiles to your family. Better yet, wrap up an Ugly Care Bears Sweater for your fam and spread Christmas cheer the way only a Care Bear can!
Care Bear Slippers
Think about the best hug you’ve ever gotten. Obviously, it was a bear hug, right? Warm, strong, and just the right about of fuzzy-wuzzy, right?! Now, imagine that you could have that beautiful bear hug…on your feet. You’re walking around on them all day and those dogs get sore. It’s time to give them the fuzzy cuddle they deserve, and only a pair of Care Bear slippers are up to the task! Why, they’re enough to give Grumpy some Cheer!

Official description via FUN.com
In the early eighties, something amazing happened. The culture around the world began to focus on caring for one another, despite all of our differences. Suddenly, rainbows stood for more than the peaceful time after a storm. It stood for the beauty of a difference. It stood for the strength of a variety of personalities coming together. All the sudden caring was key. The question is, what came first the Care Bears or people trying to care for each other more? We aren’t sociologists but we like to think that these little bright bears influenced our world in a big way!
It’s not all about holding hands. Care Bears are truly irresistible with cars made of clouds, rainbow slides, and the pudgy bears that all have their own skills. And while we all wouldn’t mind a vacation on Care-a-lot, sometimes awesome Care Bear gifts will simply have to do instead.
Hopefully, you haven’t given up on receiving your very own belly badge because it can totally happen if you scroll through our catalog. Just look at our Care Bear costumes, for instance. You not only get to choose your favorite Care Bear character, you get to choose the style of your costume as well! Want to become Share Bear, the bear that’s great at communication? You can choose from the purple plush jumpsuit or the hoodie and leggings as well. The same goes for all the other bears from Cheer Bear or Wish Bear as well.
We all feel a little like Grumpy Bear every once in a while. We think it’s pretty great that there is a character that celebrates empathy. Care-a-lot might be full of sunshine and rainbows but it’s okay to be skeptical. Do you know someone that connects with Grumpy Bear on a real level? There are plenty of gifts that will make them feel at ease with their skeptical persona. Take, for example, the fuzzy Grumpy Bear slippers. They are perfect for slipping on after a long Monday at work or school. Or maybe you know someone who might want to take that feeling to work. They might not want to carry their papers in our adorable Grumpy Bear backpack (though it’s great for grade school kids and fun going out bags) but the office can be a lot of fun when they bring in a Grumpy Bear mug or Pop vinyl figure.
These gifts are awesome for anyone who’s a fan of Care Bears whether they started watching this crew in the eighties or they restarted their interest in the most recent bout of nostalgia. And gifts don’t have to be limited to birthdays or the holidays. The Love-A-Lot Bear Pop vinyl is a sweet gift for Valentines Day. Going to a child’s birthday party? Share that nostalgic feeling you have for the Care Bears with the Care Bears five-piece meal set! They’ll feel cheerful while finishing off their peas and carrots on the colorful group.
We’ll always be happy that the Care Bears are still around, keeping things peaceful and happy. You’ll love spreading the Care Bear love with our wide variety of Care Bear gifts. And hey, if you want to buy these Care Bear gifts for yourself, we won’t blame you, especially if you’re walking around singing the Care Bear countdown in one of our awesome Care Bear suits!

I still like the originals the best. I have almost all of them, but I’m moving so I don’t know if I can take them! I think the Original Share Bear (one with ice cream soda) is my favorite. 🙂
I love the little ceramic figures. We had a bunch of them when I was a kid.
