Do-Your-Best Bear is a Care Bear who was first introduced in 2004 as part of the Play Along toyrange, and has since made minor appearances in 2000s Care Bears media.

Personality and Appearance

A particularly helpful and somewhat pushy bear, this living motivational poster only has one goal in life: to make sure everyone lives up to their true potential, one pep talk at a time. This lovable life coach is a like a one-bear cheer section, and finds no greater joy than helping someone achieve that long-unobtainable goal. It's a proven fact that objects at rest will stay that way until pushed, and he's the one that's gonna give you a nudge.

He has lime green fur and his Belly badge depicts a four-colored diamond-shaped kite with a tail.

2000's Toyline
