Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot!

I was given the awesome opportunity to review a brand new show that will be on The Hub TV Network!  The premier of Care Bears:  Welcome to Care-a-lot, showed on Saturday, June 2nd on the Hub.  In the package that I was provided, I got an episode to show my house full of kids, activity sheets with stickers, crayons, pencils, notepads and game ideas and recipe ideas for the party. 

First we all watched the episode.  There were 7 kids here total, ranging from the age of 4 to 13.
 Then we played one of their games that was given in the pamphlet.  The pillows are clouds!  :-)

 They had a lot of fun!!!  Lots of giggles and lots of noise!!
 Then the younger ones wanted to do the papers that were sent.  There were coloring pages, word searches, and other fun games.

We had a really great time.  Even my 13 year old BOY loved it.  He has always loved Care Bears though.  The 12 year old boy that was here wasn't sure about it though...he thought it was for littler people, but he still seemed engaged in it!  :-)  Everyone else seemed to really enjoy it and none of them were afraid to say they liked it....even the older ones.

Here is some statistics!  Just FYI...Funshine bear was everyone's favorite!

Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot
Character descriptions:

Tenderheart Bear
Tenderheart Bear takes being kindhearted to a new level! He’s the very wise, grandfatherly bear whose heart is always in the right place. Whether it’s advice or understanding, a hug or nudge, he knows just what a child needs to help them share their feelings. He has the perfect belly badge for the job, too – a big, red heart!
Share Bear
Share is her name, and sharing is her game! Share Bear is a nurturing and generous bear who considers everyone her friend. Carefree and loving, Share is happiest when she’s giving – or baking! She thinks sharing is such a treat, that she shows it with her belly badge – two heart- shaped lollipops!
Cheer Bear
Cheer Bear practically invented looking on the bright side! She’s also a very eager bear who thrives on helping others to be positive. She often makes up cheers right on the spot for encouragement or to help solve a problem. Spreading happiness is as evident in her constant smile as they are on her belly badge – a beautiful rainbow!
Grumpy Bear
Grumpy Bear might be a grump, but behind his gruffness is a big softie who really cares! In fact, he’s great at connecting with children, especially when it comes to being grumpy – a subject he knows well. He reminds kids who are having a bad day that they’re always loved – which is why his belly badge is a rain cloud with heart-shaped raindrops.
Funshine Bear
For Funshine Bear, having fun is job number one. Nothing makes him happier than hanging out with friends, or going on spontaneous adventures – making even more friends along the way! He makes the most of his jam-packed days with sunny optimism and a flare for being fearless. Funshine’s belly badge reflects this spirit – a smiling, blazing yellow sun!
Harmony Bear
Harmony Bear is a talented performer who is all about bringing folks together and encouraging them do their best, especially through music. She believes that differences are the key to creating harmony in the world – like how it takes many colors to make a rainbow. The flower on her belly badge reflects this by having different colored petals.
Wonderheart Bear
Silly, sweet and full of joy, Wonderheart Bear is by far the youngest Care Bear. Always wanting to be part of the “big bears’” adventures, she is a playfully curious bear who is never short on questions – about everything! Her belly badge is clearly a little heart, but she won’t know what its full power is until she’s a little older.
