Daydream Bear is a toy-exclusive Care Bear who was originally released as a UK-exclusive plush in the mid-1980's and was since revived in the 2000's toyline for worldwide release.
Personality and Appearance
Prone to "zoning out" and getting lost in her own little world, Daydream Bear has her head in the clouds even more than most Care Bears. While this has the unfortunate side-effect of making her very accident-prone, it also gives her a very active imagination and provides new ways to solve problems. She has to remain vigilant to keep herself focused on the task ahead, and encourages others to do the same.
In her original appearance, she was pale pink with a pair of rainbow heart balloons as her Belly badge, and in the 2000's she was redesigned to be violet with a Saturn-like heart-shaped planet badge surrounded by small stars. Her new belly badge is in the form of a heart-shaped ringed planet surrounded by small stars.
Daydream Bear's only appearance in the 1980's Care Bear franchise was as a limited-release UK-exclusive plush toy.
Daydream Bear was brought back in the early-to-mid 2000's Care Bears franchise revival from Play Along, with a redesigned appearance. This new version was made available in a number of different toy varieties, including a 9" comfy plush, a 12" "troll hair" plush, and a 9" special edition plush with hoodie pajamas.
In a rare twist, however, a toy based on her original design was re-released in celebration of the franchise's 20th anniversary in 2003 in North America.
Daydream Bear doesn't appear in Welcome to Care-a-Lot, also she was released in the toyrange, where she got a 14-inch glittery eye plush in 2017 by Just Play.
Daydream appears in Unlock the Magic merchandise, such as in the book The Bears Are Back in Town - The Ultimate Guidebook.
