Superstar Bear is a Care Bear who debuted in Play Along's toy-range in 2006.

Personality and Appearance

Her fur is neon yellow, and her Belly badge is an orange three-layered star with red and yellow borders with a red heart in the middle surrounded by three smaller stars.

Always outgoing, go-getting, and just plain go-ing, Superstar Bear is a bundle of energy who strives to live up to his namesake in everything he does, on or off the court. Never one to sit on the bench or stay out of the spotlight, he's an athlete through and through. Win, lose, or draw, it doesn't matter as long as you can dazzle.

2002-2006 Toyline

Superstar made her debut in 2006 during the Care Bears relaunch toyline. She was made available in several varieties, including comfy plush, "troll hair" plush, and a 12" limited edition pineapple-scented plush that is packaged and comes with a Care Bears Family DVD.

Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot

Superstar received a redesign only a short time after his debut to emulate the style of characters from Adventures in Care-a-Lot, now sporting a white visor with a red star outline in the middle and his hair pulled up with a green scrunchie. Her belly badge was also simplified to include a plain red star with a two-layered white and orange heart in the middle.

While she doesn't have any speaking lines in the series itself, she does appear in its corresponding toyline, as well as the Adventures in Care-a-Lot children's book Care Bears Snow Fun by Scholastic where he is seen riding a snowboard.

Care Bears: Unlock the Magic

Although Superstar doesn't appear in Unlock the Magic, he does appear in promotional art and in merchandise, such as the Unlock the Magic-based book Care Out Loud!.

Beginning with this series, the character's gender is changed to Male.
