My twins, or ‘twinkles’ as I often call them, had their 9th birthday in the summer and I wanted to make their birthday extra special this year.  The Care Bears Birthday Bear arrived quickly in perfect condition.  In my opinion there was not excessive packaging.  From the first moment I could see just how adorable this bear is.  It looks so special, perfect for a birthday gift.  The Care Bears Birthday Bear is 16 inches size wise.  It even comes with a collectible coin.  The coin is generous in size and the perfect size for little hands to hold. The belly badge is unique to this type of bear. I love that the belly badge is sparkly.  Myself and my sons love anything vibrant and sparkly.  The heart on one of the bear’s paws looks adorable. It comes with a multicoloured sparkly birthday hat. 

This bear brings a smile to my face.  It is suitable for age 4+.  It both looks and feels really well made.  I am now 47 years old, but can remember loving Care Bears when I was a child. What am I saying, I still love them now! I think that it is extra special that my sons now have a Care Bear themselves, something that I loved so much during my own childhood.

The bear is so cuddly.  I think that the fact it is making a cute gesture with its tongue adds to its adorableness. 

I decided to have a look at which other Care Bears products are around.  I came across https://www.carebearsstore.co.uk which sells a fantastic range of Care Bears soft toys and clothing.   One bear which really caught my eye on the Care Bears Store website was the Togetherness Bear which is here.  I think that that bear reminds me of how the world has pulled together over the last year or so. I absolutely love the combination of colours used in this adorable product.  The message of this particularly bear, according to the Care Bears Store website, is to ‘treat others equally and kindly’.  This, I believe, is such an important thing in life. 

As for our Birthday Bear, I can see he or she (she hasn’t yet got a name) coming along on so many of our family adventures. I think that it would be fun to have a Bears Tea Party for my ‘twinkles’.  The bear could be used in a role-play situation to help children develop their nurturing skills and social skills.  Our Birthday Bear even went on an exciting journey from Luton to Manchester. 

I love the important message that comes along with the Care Bear which I think is to care for and about others.
