Alena is obsessed with Care Bears. She’s watched the Care Bear Movie everyday this week. TV is usually more limited than movies everyday in our house, but when a kid’s sick, vegging out on the couch is called for.
Although we are 99% finished our Christmas shopping, I still have a few stocking stuffers to purchase. I was thinking slinkies, dinkies and other dollar store treasures. But Santa always leaves the girls a stuffy toy in their stocking. What better than a Care Bear in one of Alena’s many favourite colours (“I like pink! and Purple! and yellow! and Blue! And green… but only a little bit… And RED too!!”).
The 80’s are back with a vengeance and Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Ponies are everywhere you look, so I figured Care Bears would be easy to find… Not so much.
I ended up ordering a couple online, pleased at the “Delivery by Christmas Guaranteed” stamp on the site. Until I placed my order and read the fine print (only guaranteed within the US).
Fingers crossed that Share Bear and and Funshine Bear arrive on time to hop into the stockings.
