Many parents will remember Cheer Bear, Bedtime Bear, and the rest of the brood from their own childhood. Now these cuddly teddies are making a comeback and developing a following with the youngest generation.
Care Bear costumes are available at traditional and online retailers such as www.anniescostumes.com and come in sizes for babies and toddlers. Choose the bear that best suits your child's personality from Tenderheart Bear to Grumpy Bear! The best part: These soft and cozy costumes will keep the youngest Halloween revelers warm on chilly autumn days.
Prefer to craft your own bear rather than purchase a store-bought costume? Dress your little one in a solid-colored sweat suit and attach a Care Bear-like symbol to the belly of the outfit. You can cut a circle out of poster board and decorate it to suggest your favorite character: A moon and stars for Bedtime Bear, a rainbow for Cheer Bear, a heart for Tenderheart Bear, and a cloud for Grumpy Bear. Beary cute!
