In celebration of the Care Bears 35th anniversary, Kidrobot and American Greetings Care Bears teamed up with artist Julie West to create collectible Care Bears figurines with a bold new look. The collaboration includes the limited-edition yellow Funshine Bear Art Figure and the blue Bedtime Bear Art Figure, each of which boasts a design in Julie West's signature style. Like the original Care Bears, these new figures can be identified by the icons on their stomachs.
The Care Bears Artist Series features a variety of designs by prominent female artists from around the globe, including others like Tara McPherson.
A range of artful, limited-edition collectibles based off of nostalgic TV and movie characters are now being released for the purpose of appealing to Millennials who want to relive their youth through grown-up keepsakes.
