Always There Bear is a Care Bear who first appeared in the Play Along toyrange in 2006.

Personality and Appearance

If there's one bear you can count on to just "be there", it's Always There. If she had a middle name, it'd be dependability. Whether it's a shoulder to lean on or just a listening ear, she's ready and willing to fill the gaps that absence can leave in our hearts when we can't be with the ones we care about. Known to indiscriminately dispense hugs.

She is cerise pink and her Belly badge depicts a pair of pink and smiling lavender hearts.
