Bashful Heart Bear is a toy-exclusive Care Bear who first debuted in 2004. He has sea green fur and his Belly badge depicts a small pink heart hiding behind a cloud emitting a rainbow.

Bashful Heart is usually short on words, but always tries to let his actions shine through. After all, it's hard to be bold when you're dubbed "the shyest of all Care Bears". But even though he's not the kind of bear that steers a conversation, or even starts one, you can always count on him to lend an ear or helping paw to those in need. So while he may not stand out in a crowd, he's still a valuable member of the Care Bear Family.

In other languages:
German: Schüchternheitsbärchi ("Shyness Bear")
Japanese: バッシュフルハートベア
