Take Care Bear is a Care Bear who was first introduced in a promotional coloring book, and has since been revived as part of the franchise's 2000's toy line.

Profile[]

Appearance[]

In the 80's, she had honey-yellow fur and her Belly badge was a red apple, while in the 2000's she is light hot pink and her badge depicts a purple heart holding a yellow star.

Personality[]

Some may think of Take Care Bear as overly cautious, but this bear really puts the "care" in Care Bear. While she may have a tendency to be over-protective, it's only because she values her friends so much, and has made it her business to keep everyone healthy and in one piece. When it comes to Take Care Bear, safety always comes first.

Appearances[]

Care Bears and the Big Sneeze[]

Take Care's first and only appearance during the franchise's original 80's run was in this Care Bears coloring book that was sold with Triaminic Liquid cough syrup, where our fuzzy spokes-bear explained the benefits and proper administration of the helpful elixir.

2002-2006 toyline[]

Take Care was plucked from obscurity in the Care Bears relaunch toyline in the early and mid 2000's, and received a rather large redesign in the process. Though she now sports pale pink fur and a new belly badge, she still retains her happy helpful attitude from before.

She has appeared as a number of different products, including a 10" plush with a "hugs and kisses" heart accessory, a "troll hair" plush, a 7" plush with a bathrobe and doll accessory, a beanbag plush with nightcap, and a large 13" talking plush that came packaged with a special DVD.

Unlock the Magic[]

Once again, after a long hiatus, Take Care was brought back for the Care Bears: Unlock the Magic merchandise.

In the toyrange from Basic Fun!, she first appeared as a 9" "Reindeer" Plush in the 2022 "Autumn" Special Edition Collector's Set.
