Hopeful Heart Bear is a Care Bear who was first introduced as a plush toy in 2005 during the early-to-mid to 2000s Care Bears franchise re-launch. She has light fuchsia fur and her Belly badge is a pink heart emitting multicolored rays of light.

Absolutely brimming with hope, happiness, and positivity, Hopeful Heart's the kind of bear that will tell you everything's going to be all right in the end. She's the type that sees the silver lining around every dark cloud, and knows that no matter how dire a situation may seem, there's always chance to make things better. It takes a lot to get this girl down, but even if that happens you can bet she'll be back to her old self in no time flat.

Hopeful Heart's AiC design

While she doesn't appear in the series itself, Hopeful Heart received a re-design just after her debut to match the new character designs of the Adventures in Care-a-Lot cartoon, and has been featured in its associated toyline. She remains mostly the same, except her hair is now tied up in a lavender scrunchie and the light rays on her Belly Badge now come in only three colors instead of six. This particular version was released as an 8" beanbag plush and 10" regular plush by Play Along.
