Sea Friend Bear, also known as Ocean Friend Bear on his toy packaging in Australia, is a toy-exclusive Care Bear who debuted in the 1980s as a joint effort between Tonka and the international World Wildlife Fund. He has sea blue fur and his Belly badge depicts an ocean wave in front of a smiling sun, and was marketed and sold exclusively in the UK and Australia.

Like his pal Forest Friend Bear, Sea Friend Bear is committed to nature. Specifically the part that makes up 70% of the Earth's surface. Like his name suggests, this wet and wild bear loves the water and everything in it, and has made it his goal in life to make sure our lakes, oceans, waterways, and everything that that lives in them remain safe.

In other languages:
Dutch: Zeebeertje ("Sea Bear")
French: Grosplouf ("Big Plouf", with plouf being the French word for the sound a stone makes when it falls in water.)
German: Seefreund Bärchi ("Sea Friend Bear")
Japanese: シーフレンドベア


Sea Friend Bear was only available as a mid-1980's limited release UK and Australia exclusive 13" plush toy. Due to its rarity and relatively short shelf life, it remains a popular item for collectors.


  • While his packaging labeled him as "Ocean Friend Bear" in Australia, his wash tag still had his original name.
