    Thumbs down Why did they change the Care Bears?

    Has anyone noticed that the Care Bears are different colors and designs? Why did they have to go and change them? They were perfect as is. Why do they keep wrecking my childhood memories?

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    Not sure what you mean? My daughter has the exact same one I had growing up.

    Barbies have changed over the years.

    My Little Ponies haven't really.

    Polly Pockets have morphed a little, along the same lines as Barbies.

    Strawberry Shortcake was a brief thing in the early/mid 80's, so brief that I don't think anyone cares that they have changed.

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    Care Bears looks the same to me, too... saw some of the Care Bear Cousins the other day. They didn't change.

    I am annoyed by the Strawberry Shortcake and Holly Hobbie changes, though. Holly Hobbie, especially (even though the current line is oddly supposed to be the grandchildren of the 70s icon).

    Well for one thing they changed Share Bear's tummy symbol. It used to be a milkshake with two straws but now it is two heart shaped lollypops.

    Should I be concerned that I am a man and know that much about the Care Bears? LOL

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    I think some of the Care Bears has some added "Bling" to them to update their look into the new millineum.

    Most of the Care Bears I can still find in the "old version" but some have added things such as the ability to write on them, some now glow in the dark, some have glitter.

    If you look at the old Transformers to the new ones they look different also. Its not neccessarily they are trying to "change" them..I think the companies are trying to make them appeal to the new generation.

    Or could it be they are trying to make the older versions more collectible?

    Try as I might, I can't recall the old Care Bear details. They all look the same to me.

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    Hmmm that's odd. I've seen them all the same colors as they were when I was a kid. Maybe it's confusion with the Care Bear Cousins or maybe they're some sort of limited edition of some sort?

    I agree about the dislike for the changes to Holly Hobbie and Strawberry Shortcake.

    Do they even have Huckleberry Pie anymore?

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    I read there's going to be a Care Bear movie this summer with a new bear - Oopsie Bear. I have mixed emotions, as I adored the old Care Bears, but I'm curious to see what they'll do with them now after all this time.

    They Changed Bedtime Bear's color. He used to be more of a light green-blue, not he's like bright "peacock" blue and it looks weird!

    Re: Why did they change the Care Bears?

    I loved Care Bears when I was a kid - my cousin and I collected and sent the lil plastic figures back and forth to each other and had matching Care Bear Wall Paper in our rooms.

    I saw some of the newer cartoons they did - I miss the old original ones. They were better.

    I'm going to guess it's a generational thing. Back in the day sharing a milkshake is what a stereotyped young couple would do on a date. However, kids these days are probably not going to get much out of the reference, so it was updated to the more obvious heart-shaped lolipops.

    On a similar note. Should I be concerned that I am a man and actually put some thought into WHY Share Bear's tummy logo has changed?
