What to sell Wednesday: Let's Hear it for the Care Bears!
Now I don't want to date myself, but I will say that I remember Care Bears from way back in the 80's. I remember the original Care Bears movie (which I think I saw in the theatre, I might add!), the stuffed Care Bears, and the Care Bear figurines. I don't remember if I actually had any of these toys, but I do remember they were cute in a rainbows and butterflies sort of way. They were nice little friends, and with the exception of grumpy bear, not too terribly controversial. Of course these days, any of these vintage Care Bears can bring a nice little profit on ebay, but they are really hard to find and you just aren't going to see many if ever.
So forget about those old 1980's Care Bears. Let's talk about the remakes!! 80's are in again, right? And so are the new Care Bears, which happen to be old again!! Does that make sense? Be on the lookout for the early 2000's (I think) Care Bear figures, castles, ferris wheels, airplanes, playsets, houses, etc., because these are discontinued (again!) and you can't find them in the store anymore.
