“Care Bears: Bear Buddies” DVD Review & Giveaway

Care Bears Bear Buddies

I remember watching “Care Bears” as a little girl.  I remember even owning a Care Bear (or 2 or 3).  I was excited to introduce “Care Bears” to my boys, even though it was somewhat different than what I used to.  Overall, it was the same idea though.  I was excited to review “Care Bears: Bear Buddies” on DVD!  My boys enjoyed watching it as well!

Lionsgate released “Care Bears: Bear Buddies” on DVD on September 22nd, 2009.  Included on the DVD are eight never-before-released episodes from the top-rated Saturday morning CBS TV series. While supplies last, the all–new release comes packaged with a lovable toy bear buddy making for an incredible value.  These adorable toy bears come in 6 different color characters, but are available for a limited time only, so kids will be eager to search for their favorite color bears on store shelves – and collect them all!  Come journey with the Care Bears into Care-a-lot where the Care Bears learn about being true to themselves and each other.  Watch as Share, Oopsy, Love-a-lot and the rest of the Care Bears embark on new adventures that focus on “friendship” from creating a rockin’ music band to trying to cheer up a sad friend. Care Bears: Bear Buddies teaches kids valuable lessons about being true to themselves and each other, understanding, and forgiveness – themes of emotional intelligence that help kids develop and are mom-friendly.  The DVD retails for $14.98.
