Care Bear Plush Toys from Basic Fun - Review

AD - We were sent these products for the purpose of this review.

Care Bears are my all-time favourite bears! I've adored them ever since I was a little girl - so it's wonderful to see the brand ever so popular, and still a household name. I also think it's great that Ava seems to love them just as much as I did - I'm totally reliving the magic.

Basic Fun have just released a range of Care Bear soft toys and they are adorable! Just like the original Care Bears, they are loving, cuddly, and each has their own personality, colour, and belly motif - with a more modern look to their faces. This range of toys features Care Bears in three different sizes; 9" beanie style teddies, and 14" plushes, and a 16" plush. I can't wait to show you them in all their glory.

Bedtime Bear is the only plush available in the 16" size - perfect for snuggling at bedtime. The signature aqua colour with moon and star motif is very soothing, the perfect buddy to drift off asleep with. The deep plush fabric which gives such a sensory of snuggly feel. Check out that expression too - it really made me laugh. I got Joey from Friends vibes - How you doin'? Bedtime Bear is exclusive to John Lewis and retails at £19.99. 

The medium 14" plushes are boxed (with hardly any plastic - yay) and all come with a collectible coin. Choose from Cheer Bear - the pink happy one, with his colourful rainbow tummy design. Tenderheart is the loving orange bear with his bright red heart design and the shamrock on his tummy. Good Luck Bear is the brightest green - as if he has come directly from the Emerald Isle. To our delight, we received Share Bear. Looking lovely in lilac is Share Bear has a lollipop motif on the belly and super soft plush fur. Also a great size for snuggling - Ava decided to call her Mummy bear! There are six Care Bears to collect in this size, they each retail at £14.99 - they are available to buy now at Smyths.

Great news - all 6 Care Bears are also available as 9” beanie plush. Just like the bigger versions, they each carry a different facial expression and belly badge. They are a great size for young ones to toddle about with, or toy collectors to well, collect! We received Cheer Bear in this size and I think it might be Ava's favourite - she does love a rainbow! The small beanie plushes cost just £8.00 each and are available from Smyths.

The new Care Bear plush toys are brilliant, a nice nod to nostalgia, with a little twist of modernisation. Their brightness and cheer have made us smile ever since they arrived - a bit of positivity after the trials and tribulations of this year. Each bear, in any size, would make the most beautiful gift for any occasion.

  1. I used to love care bears when I was a little girl

    1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
