Heartsong Bear is a Care Bear who debuted as a plush toy in 2006.

Appearance and Personality

The "star" of the Care Bear crew, Heartsong believes that everyone should always put their best feelings. Or, falling that, compensate with a really noisy microphone. While this musical bear may spend most of her time singing, dancing, or just performing, she's not as self-absorbed as one might think. No, she also sees others as blank stages just waiting to be turned into living sounds of music by her expert singing techniques. To her, the path to feeling good inside starts from the outside.

Her fur is teal blue, and her Belly badge is a rainbow-colored musical note surrounded by five different colored hearts.

2002-2006 Toyline

Heartsong made her debut in 2006 during the Care Bears relaunch toyline. She was made available in several varieties, including comfy vanilla-scented plush, "troll hair" plush, and 8" and 12" varieties. Her 12" variant came packaged with a Care Bears Family DVD.

Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot

Heartsong received a redesign only a short time after her debut to emulate the style of characters from Adventures in Care-a-Lot, now wearing her hair tied up in a ponytail. Her belly badge was also simplified to include a plain rainbow-colored musical note with a white heart inside with surrounded by three different colored hearts.

Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot

Heartsong doesn't appear in Welcome to Care-a-Lot, although she does appear in the show's merchandise.

Just Play released a 14-inch "Crystal Eyes" plush of her in 2017, while HeadStart International released a Dancing toy of the character in 2019.
