Care Bears Stare

27 Jun

If you were a kid during the ’80s, you would be familiar with these adorable bears.

How can anyone forget the Care Bears? Each Care Bear came in a different color and had a unique symbol on its belly that represented its duty and personality. I used to collect these cute little teddy bears, and that’s why making this project was really fun for me. While I crafted each tummy symbol one by one using gum paste, I would remember episodes from one of my favorite TV shows as a kid.

My favorite part in each episode was always when the Care Bears would bring out their ultimate weapon: the Care Bears’ Stare, in which the collected Bears stood together and radiated light from their respective tummy symbols. These combined to form a ray of love and good cheer which brought care and joy into the target’s heart. Isn’t that wonderful, to be stared with love? If there really was a weapon like that, I’d love to always be on the receiving end.
