New Care Bears for 2023 – Dare to Care and Calming Heart

NEW CARE BEAR ALERT!! Two New Huggable Collectible Plush Toys Dare to Care and Calming Heart Care Bears are going to be hitting the shelves around the UK in 2023. With special bright colours and scented fluffiness, the kids eyes lite up as we unboxed these beauties.

Care Bears are a much-loved childhood memory for many parents. They are colourful, lovable Bears who live in up in the clouds in a place called Care-a-lot, who are on a mission of sharing and caring.

In 2020, Cloudco re-launched Care Bears toys with new master toy partner, Basic Fun allowing the return of the iconic 80’s Care Bear brand to be enjoyed by a new generation of kids. 2022 saw the franchise celebrate their 40th anniversary as they released some new fluffy huggable bears with the Unlock the Magic look of vibrant style and cool features.

Now 2023 we have two of the newest Care Bears to join the family, Dare to Care and Calming Heart Bears to review, so we can share our honest thoughts with you.

 

Dare to Care Bear

The unique belly badge on Dare to Care Bear is a large yellow and smaller light blue smiling fluffy star, with embroidered rainbow stripes all on a white velvety belly. This belly badge reminds us all how even though we may be different in some ways, we’re also the same in other ways.

And just like all other Care Bears nestled in the fluffy fur on its bottom is the iconic heart with Care Bears written on it, but not in standard red, instead a bright yellow. It just wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t there!

Another unique feature about Calming Heart Bear is that she is scented with a coconut leamon smell, however the kids thinks she smells just like candy floss, so you will need to make your own mind up about that one.

Would we Recommend Dare to Care and Calming Heart Care Bears for Your Child?

We are Huge Care Bear Fans, lovers from our own childhood and now loving that we are able to gift them to our own children to enjoy.

We are loving the new Unlock the Magic look to these collectible plush care bears, so brightly coloured and fluffy, all the kids love cuddling into them at bedtime.

All our kids are also totally hooked watching the Unlock the Magic TV series that is on Tiny Pop and the Sky Kids App on their Kindles, so it’s great that we as parents can buy toys to match up with programmes they are enjoying watching so much.

The kids all really loved how soft and squeezable both Dare to Care and Calming Heart Bears are, they have been a real hit and first choice for taking everywhere they go, however the most loved feature of both the bears by the kids is the bright mix of colours. We would 100% recommend that families check out all the New Care Bears as a perfect treats for the kids this year.
