Sweet Dreams Bear is a Care Bear who debuted as a plush toy in 2005 and has since made many major appearances.

Personality and Appearance

Sweet Dreams is essentially the female equivalent to Bedtime Bear. Like her drowsy double, she believes that rest and relaxation are the cornerstones to wellness, and tries to help everyone get their required z's by bestowing good dreams and happy thoughts. 

She has mauve fur and her Belly badge is a light pink sleeping crescent moon resting on a cloud surrounded by small hearts. 


2002-2006 Toyline

Sweet Dreams made her debut in 2005 as part of a new wave of Care Bears toys from Play Along. She was made available in several varieties, including comfy plush, "troll hair" plush, and a 12" limited edition passion fruit-scented plush that is packaged and comes with a Care Bears Family DVD.

Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot

Sweet Dreams' Adventures in Care-a-Lot design.

Sweet Dreams received a redesign only a short time after her debut to emulate the style of characters from Adventures in Care-a-Lot and has her hair pulled up in a pony tail with a light blue scrunchie, and wears a pink sleeping mask on her forehead.

While she doesn't have any speaking lines in the series itself, she does appear in its corresponding toyline.

Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot

Gallery of Appearances


  • Though she helps give good dreams like Bedtime Bear, it is not known if she can actually enter Dreamland like he can in the Adventures in Care-a-Lot series. However, her toy description mentions that she can "whisper" pleasant thoughts into one's ear while they are sleeping.
  • In yet another nod to Bedtime Bear, Sweet Dream's belly badge is nearly identical to his, but with a pink moon instead of blue.
