The Care Bears aren’t what they used to be. They are still charming children with their adorable tummies and rainbow making skills.
My daughter has Share Bear. Share Bear is all about sharing but that’s not why Zoe has her. Zoe has her because she’s purple. We have called her baby and Zoe dresses her and keeps her close. There is also a new bear named Oopsy Bear.
So when we were offered the chance to review Care Bears I wanted to see if she could relate to the Care Bears. The answer was yes and I get asked every day can I watch Care Bears. I’m thankful there are 8 different short episodes so we can watch something different each time.
Care Bears: Tell-Tale Tummies is all about telling the truth or finding the truth. At first my husband and I both thought it was about food, but nope. Episodes include
“The Tell-Tale Tummy,” – The tummy tells all.
“Oopsy, the Hero,” – Oopsy’s oopsy makes him a hero and he doesn’t want to admit that it was just an oopsy.
“Bumbleberry Jammed,” – Grumpy finds the best Bubleberry bush and doesn’t want to share
“Desperately Seeking Mr. Beaks,” – The Care Bears help their friend find Mr. Beaks
“King of the Gobblebugs,”
“Bad News,” – You should always tell the truth when reporting the news
“Tour De Farce” – Riding bikes and why grumpy doesn’t like too
and “No-Snow Day.” – This one is about having a bad attitude
My favorite episode is Bumbleberry Jammed with Grumpy Bear as the center character. My daughter now says, I’m not grumpy. I’m not grumpy. I love listening to her learn new phrases. Zoe likes it all over and over and over again. I think Care Bears are second to Tigger and Pooh.
