Other Merchandise

Tons of Care Bear merchandise was put out by 80s toy giant Kenner and plenty of other companies too such as Betty Crocker, Wilton and Parker Brothers – everything from nightgowns to Advent Calenders to cake pans. American Greetings, the Care Bears’ parent company, filled up card shops with greeting cards, valentines, party supplies and Christmas decor. Here’s a sampling of the myriad of Care Bears stuff out there in collectors’ shops and eBay.
