AGP plans Care Bears return for 30th anniversary

AGP plans Care Bears return for 30th anniversary

The Care Bears are back! Or… they will be! The group of emotionally powerful bears were originally created by American Greetings Properties in the early 1980s for use on greeting cards. Only a few years later, the cards’ popularity warranted a toy line, complete with top selling Care Bear plush teddy bears. It wasn’t long until they figured an animated series would do well, starting with several TV specials before leading into feature movies and an ongoing toon. Now, some 30 years after their creation, the Care Bears are planning a comeback, with a whole new toy line, CG animated series, and marketing push. Hasbro will feature the toys under their umbrella which, along with Hasbro’s new network The Hub, has us thinking the Care Bears will be heading there once all is said and done. Stay TOONed right here for more details!

While Hello Kitty took home the award for best Character and Toy Brand, Toy Story nabbed the top overall spot, bringing yet another honor to Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of Andy’s toys.

He-Man versus Superman at Toy Fair 2010

He-Man versus Superman at Toy Fair 2010

He-Man; super-strong good guy. Superman; super-strong good guy. We can all see the connection, so Mattel decided to capitalize on it and just partner the two up! Mattel is bringing their new action figure line of Masters of the Universe Classics to retail, paired up with DC Comics characters. The new figures, sculpted by Four Horsemen, have the look and feel of the original cartoon from the 1980s, but with modern style and craftsmanship. And, what’s more, they’ll be packaged in with 6″ DC Universe Classic action figures. The first 2-pack from this line will of course be Superman and He-Man, as the two stand toe-to-toe as they’ve done before, in DC Comics Presents #47. The toys were featured at Toy Fair 2010, and can now be seen here at ToonBarn! Check out the shots
