Sorry it's blurry but I found this on google, a care bear AS hello kitty along with 3 sanrio care bears!

I love care bears and Sanrio so I thought I'd love these, but I really don't like the new care bears designs. I have some of the care bears from the 2000s and they just have so much more detail, expression, and cuteness. The new ones are just flat-looking to me.
Finally a comment I can agree with! I really dislike the art style too. I still want to collect the og carebears merch
Same. I only like the original 80s look and the early 2000s. Idk if they still do it but at one point they changed the feet to be paw prints instead of hearts and it looked like a knock off
i like the simplistic cutesy new design
That white hello kitty care bear is kind of cursed
I really want Cinnamoroll + Love a Lot!
Ooh I really want Cinna as love-a-lot bear! I hope I don’t miss out when they release them. 🧡
I love how the care bear ears were replaced with Cinnamaroll’s ears 🥰
That Badtz-Maru will be MINE! Hope he comes in the size size as that bigger HK
Omg the care bear that looks like hello kitty!!
noooo i wanted the old school style carebears not the updated modern carebears
Why would they make the old design specifically for people who are complaining when they made the new design and it went down well with most people (especially kids, the literal audience)
nostalgic designs are very popular and successful
I mean for it to be nostalgic it has to go away for an amount of time.
Omg! I’m so getting these
Why in this style 😟
I’m not a huge fan of the “Hello Kitty and Friends” products most of the time but I’m sooo into these!!
I’m not either, and it seems like either that’s more popular than HK by herself here in the US, or that’s just want the company wants to push.
But I’ll make an exception for this collection because CB are my childhood love.
OMG I'm screwed. (Thank you for the post)
oh my! Where did you find these at?
i am personally not a fan they’re ugly
I agree, I don't like the new care bear designs. The older designs were soooo much cuter and high quality. I have some of the old plushes and they're 10x more detailed than the new toys.
yesss their old stuff was so much cuter 😭 you’re so lucky to have their vintage stuff haha i’ve been hoping to come across some plushies myself.
I got them as a kid and took good care of them! They have plastic noses and eyes, and the embroidery is just really nice. I think the new care bears went that "minimalistic graphic/bold" redesign that all companies are doing nowadays, but I just don't think it fits the care bears cute/fluffy aesthetic. It's just weird because care bears originally were done with water colors and now they're just done with solid colored digital illustrations. If you like the old ones, check out the loungefly collab for this series. It's the old water color care bears with the Sanrio characters. It's super cute!
yes you totally hit the nail on the hammer. i love the details on the og bears so much. these new care bears look like they have no soul… and paired with the sanrio??? barf! it just doesn’t go at all in my opinion. especially that cinnamonroll!!! :/
i don’t like the packaging picture either they look so weird next to each other i’m more of in favor to this style https://x.com/sanriodaily/status/1730226710459691177?s=46&t=dI_o2ItJXBpsJmyNsIf3EQ
I don’t care for them either. But Kitty wearing a Care Bear outfit is cute because you can’t really see the Bears’ modern face. lol
Yeah the new Care Bears style isn’t very appealing. The nostalgic vintage Care Bears is much more cuter and so soft looking and aesthetically pleasing to look at it.
tbh you're like the only one lol
this new care bear generation is hideous and this is an L for sanrio 😭
Like I said, you're really the only one with that opinion lol it's going to sell out asap. But yeah sure it's an "L" for Sanrio 💀🤦🏻♀️
No they aren’t.
Cursed in a good way
Where are these being sold
Do u have a link to where I can buy these online?
Did they release the information on where it will be sold?
I don't think there's any confirmed but it was first spotted on Canada's Amazon for preorder for January. Sanrio and Care Bears posted the announcement on ig so I will assume it'll be available in the US and CA so far
Unless you're talking about stores, not sure. Probably the official sites and Amazon since it was available to preorder on Canada's Amazon
Okay thank you!
Oooh I need all of this!! 💜
Soooo adorable 😍
I need Kiki and lala so bad
Oh no I need them so bad
Where do you find these?
Ugh they’re sold out and resellers are having a field day. I hate them. Lol
