I'd like to hear more about the Nordstrom and the Care Bears x Hot Topic bears.  Any pics?

You can see the Land of Nod/Nordstrom Care Bears here https://www.landofnod.com/care-bears Lots of people aren't liking them but I think they're adorable. Can't get them in Canada though so I'm waiting on a few to come in the mail from some fellow collectors. I also have the 3 Hot Topic Bears, forgot to mention those. I'll try to get a pic tomorrow.

Thank you!  I'm not sure why the Nordstrom Care Bears are controversial  - they remind me of a blend of the two styles (vintage and modern 'troll hair' varieties).  The Hot Topic bears on the other hoof...  Definitely not my cup of tea.  Nothing I need between either, as I don't see any new characters, but I always appreciate knowing what's out there.  Thank you very much!

Great pics everyone. I'm excited for the World's Smallest Care Bears. I hope they'll be more than just Cheer and Grumpy.


 

Here's a pic of my Glow a Lot Wish Bear. :) Wish Bear is one of my favorite Care Bears.

Look what arrived yesterday!!! They are the softest and fluffiest bears ever! Even cuter in person. So glad I got them, just missing Cheer.

Great pics, everyone!

I won a Cheer Bear at the carnival today. I think it's a fakie because she's wonky here and there, but i still love her  :P Besides, it's the first time i win something decent at a carnival stand and i'm pretty glad.

(plus it only took me 3 tries, Care Bears are soooo expensive here! 33 euros a medium bear. Did that always happen?)

I found 2 of the 35th anniversary Care Bears at Target today. Sorry the pic isn't too good. I'm so happy that Share has her soda symbol back.

I was wondering about Rainbow Heart Bear :) I didn't realize she was for the 35th anniversary. She's really pretty.

The only Care Bear I picked up last year. ;)  The back of her packaging indicates a contest for kids under 12 to submit their OCs and three will be chosen to be produced.  So, here's hoping we see three new characters in 2018!

Oh good! I'm glad these are showing up in the States now. They've been in Canada for a while and people were starting to worry. I'm hoping Tenderheart and Funshine show up soon.

I need to get off my butt and take pics of my Care Bears. I'm currently on the lookout for Swiftheart, Treatheart and the Panda Twins, Perfect and Polite. I'd also like to grab Care Bears Movie 2.

Great pictures, everyone! I'm loving all the adorable bears in this thread! :D
At long last, I got some pictures of my own Care Bears! The lighting in this room is awful today (patchy sunshine at a bad angle, now it's overcast and gross again) but the general jist is there. :P
My sister and I only ever had one Care Bear when we were kids, a little plush Love A Lot. She went missing at some point, I vaguely remember we'd taken her on a trip to the park and she disappeared. :/
I have a small collection at the minute because there's just a whole ton of different things that I'm into, and in my area, Care Bears are as scarce as hen's teeth - not to mention expensive when you actually can find them!

Here they are all together on the shelf; Rainbow Heart does come out of her box, I just kept it as a display case because she was a Christmas present and I thought it'd be nice to keep the whole kaboodle so she looks a bit glam. (Likewise with the Cosmic Cat Pinball, it looks great on display but it does get played with - you can't beat a bit of noisy fun.)



Itty bitty bears! The miniature Grumpy is the only old-school one in my collection thus far, but I am keeping an eye out for more of the old figurines.



Plushes all together with some photobombing cetaceans. I was lucky enough to find Grumpy and Heart Song in a sale while I was out of town (It would've been nice to get Braveheart Lion as well, but they didn't have any of the cousins!)



A stationery set that is currently acting as a back-up; just my luck, I found it after I'd replaced my old pencil case.



Mini colouring books and stickers!
