We LOVE the care bears at our house. I think we have at least 8 (one from when I was a kid and the rest newer for my 4 yo). American Greetings first introduced them in 1981 followed by Kenner in 1983

Oh Boy do I know the Care Bears, our daughter was crazy over them. American Greetings made them, and we had the sheets, curtains, pj, etc.

American Greetings introduced the Care Bears. I LOVED the Care Bears when I was a kid. I was practically obsessed and still have one of their movies on VHS that I taped off the tv when I was young. I just can't part with it :)

Thanks for offering up the awesome candy. Have a great week!
